Diminutive Bum Bum

won at Pimlico yesterday.  When I say diminutive, she is!!  I don’t think we have measured her but I would be surprised if she made 14.2 hands!  She’s by Giant’s Causeway whose progeny are often small, out of an In The Wings mare so a very European background.  She herself was born in France.    Many congratulationsContinue reading

Nice come back

Amanwella, after having a year off from the racetrack came back in fine form today to win at Pimlico.  She’s a very unlikely temperament for a filly by Fusaichi Pegasus out of a Storm Cat mare, meaning she’s relaxed and sensible!! Cheris Treptow and Hickory Tree’s farm manager Jennifer were on hand to greet their winner who IContinue reading

Super Saver

Two ways.  Horse’s name and the amazing Calvin Borel doing his super saving rail skimming ride!!  The odds of winning the Kentucky Derby 3 out of the last 4 years – LONG!!  For the last two years he had to go around just one horse – more long odds!!!  Todd Pletcher made it 1 forContinue reading


{jcomments on}I know, we kept trying to call him Indomitable when he arrived!!  He made his State side debut yesterday at Churchill Downs with a typical last (or nearly last) to first Julien Leparoux ride.  He had an amazing turn of foot which I think surprised us all!!  German horse, ridden by a French jockeyContinue reading

Let’s Do It

won today at the newly opened for the season Pimlico racetrack.  He’d been knocking on the door at Gulfstream Park during the winter but I would think a little give in the ground at Pimlico definitely was preferable!  Congratulations to Airdrie Stud for their El Prado homebred.{jcomments on}

Atlantic City

A photo from our day out at Atlantic City.  We had a great afternoon with The Levitons.  

Holy Momentous!

That’s what I call her anyway!  Holy Moment won tonight at Atlantic City.  It was her third try; the first being on too hard turf at Gulfstream, the second nearly being brought down at Keeneland, third time a charm!!  Many congratulations to J. Mack Robinson for his home bred Holy Bull filly.  Graham and AnitaContinue reading

Appalachian Stakes (Grade III)

      Check The Label won the $100,000 Grade III Appalachian Stakes at Keeneland yesterday in fine style.  Tracking the leaders with the pace suiting her just fine, she overtook them coming around the turn and pulled away.  She was chased by the fast finishing runner up but pulled out all the stops to winContinue reading
