After relentless rain fell at Old Hilltop the Pimlico Special was run over a sloppy track.  Irish War Cry had his game face on and was primed to run a big race.  Ridden by Jose Ortiz, Irish War Cry broke out of the gate in front and stayed there – winning by 4 1/2 lengthsContinue reading


The handsome homebred chestnut colt by Ghostzapper out of Sweet Relish won comfortably by six lengths this evening at Presque Isle Downs.  His second win but first time on a synthetic surface. Congratulations to Ms. Josephine Abercrombie of Pin Oak Stud.    


Seems to be sloppy tracks everywhere this weekend but Rugbyman, by Tapit, seemed to relish the conditions while winning by daylight today at Belmont.  It was his second race after having a less than ideal first race at Keeneland a month ago.   He is a big horse, at least 16 hands as a two yearContinue reading

Strike Me Down

A couple of good runs last year, including a Stakes second, Strike Me Down had a good winter off and was brought back yesterday to win his maiden race at Woodbine in good fashion.  He’s a lovely big Tapit colt who seems to have a bright future.  Congratulations to owners and breeders Sam Son Farms.

Lady Alexandra

Sweet Lady Alexandra, previously Stakes placed and now a Stakes winner!  She was bought out of the Horses Of Racing Age at the end of last year and this was her first run for us.  Her previous two wins were over six furlongs, as was today’s trip.  Reckon she likes that distance!  Many congratulations toContinue reading
