Panzacola

Written by Sue Kenny on December 13, 2017

Already a winner in Italy where she ran nine times her US debut at Gulfstream today was also a winning one.  Joel Rosario did a good job as Mrs. de Tomaso had given strict instructions not to hit her behind the saddle or she will swerve and stop, which she did many times in Italy.

Head Games

Written by Sue Kenny on December 8, 2017

Having raced mainly on the turf unless it was a race taken off when she ran on the main track Head Games has been a grinder, not always in the winners circle but also not quite getting there.  Today it was different.  Dirt race over one mile and one eighth and grinding worked!!  She’s a

Written by Sue Kenny on December 2, 2017

Not having raced since September of 2016 Sherini put up an impressive performance today in her come back race at Laurel today.  She’s a half sister to Shackleford and has shown promise in her previous races including a win at Saratoga, so this was a very welcome result.  Congratulations to My Meadowview LLC.

Live Large

Written by Sue Kenny on December 1, 2017

Live Large lived up to her name today although she is small!  She’s by a freshman Tapit stallion called Rattlesnake Bridge who many may not have heard of yet but if he breeds tough horses like her they soon will.   The reason I say tough is she was in front and was passed by a

Giving Thanks for Icabad

Written by Maggie Kimmitt on November 29, 2017

Anyone even remotely familiar with Herringswell Stables knows that Icabad Crane is and always has been very special to the entire team. He earned his reputation first as a hard-knocking stakes winner on the racetrack, but in his second career as an event horse under the tutelage of Olympic champion Phillip Dutton, Icabad has become

Off The Turf Win For Full Of Zip

Written by Sue Kenny on November 14, 2017

With the previous nights rain and the ‘not sunny day’ Laurel’s turf was not drying so the races were taken off the grass and the decision was made to run Full Of Zip anyway.  Her previous races and her two wins had been on the tapeta and turf so this was the first time she’d

Spring Quality Wins First Graded Stake

Written by Sue Kenny on November 11, 2017

Raced once as a two year old, had his three year old season off, ran once as a four year old.    Rather a spotty racing career up to then but Spring Quality is now a bigger much stronger horse at five years old and has reeled off three wins and two seconds in a seven

Berned Wins The Safely Kept Stakes

Written by Sue Kenny on November 11, 2017

Very much an improving filly Berned put away the Safely Kept Stakes in style today.  Thoughtfully ridden by Feargal Lynch, he didn’t rush her when he found himself about twelve lengths off the lead but when he pressed go she didn’t stop until she was five lengths ahead of everyone, and that with having to
