Irish War Cry And Friends

Irish War Cry is a very kind horse but he can be playful and he knows who he can play with and who he is gentle with.  Liza, an IWC fan came yesterday to visit him and others.  We told her to be careful and like many eight year olds she really wanted to strokeContinue reading

Utmost

Very keen in his first race in the United States, Utmost settled behind the leader and favorite today and bided his time until ‘go’.  Never celebrate until they cross the line, that’s what I’ve learned as although he seemed to have the better of his rival, his rival fought back for a while.  Utmost keptContinue reading

Majestic Reason Scores First Stake

It was a toss up between entering her in an allowance race today or a MD bred Stakes race.  Erring on the side of optimism Graham decided on the Stake which paid off handsomely with home bred Majestic Reason winning it very professionally.  It really wasn’t a stretch to think about this Stake race inContinue reading

Arch Of The Diver

This four year old gelding by Arch hasn’t run for almost two years!   He’s been with us for almost a year and had niggly things going on so was given plenty of time to come to himself.  He certainly came to himself today by winning by nine and a half lengths in his ‘off theContinue reading

Scandaleuse

Scandaleuse is a precious addition to our team as her mother was Aruna who won multiple Graded Stakes for us and who sadly passed away last year.  Scandaleuse came over from England in June and although she’s smaller she’s very much like her in looks and definitely has her adorable, loving nature.  Scandaleuse was runningContinue reading

Secret Message Win Pucker Up (Grade 3)

Three Stake runs for us, one second and now a Grade Three win.  As you can read in the attached article the middle race at Churchill didn’t suit her as she got rather upset before the race.    She’s a big, beautiful Hat Trick (JPN) filly and although he’s not a hot sire he certainly getsContinue reading

Unexpected Visit

Just having run four times as a two year old Unexpected Visit won her first race back after an extended break.  The rain soaked turf at Laurel was listed as good and her competitors were strung out behind her, some obviously not relishing the softer conditions.  Congratulations to Wertheimer et Frere, owners and breeders.

Millie’s Journey First Win

Having had her ‘practice’ race at Presque Isle back in June Millie went up there again and scored a win.   Our other runner Myth Creation headed her in the stretch but Millie got the better of her.  As I’ve said before it’s tough when one beats the other as we want both to win!!  CongratulationsContinue reading

Just Howard Yesterday

Just Howard got back into winning form in a little easier spot for him at Laurel.  He’s been running very well in Graded Stakes (beaten just two lengths last out in the Grade 3 Arlington Handicap) but yesterday’s win will have been a huge confidence booster for him.  Congratulations to owners Skeedattle Associates

Dead Heat

Although dead heats are not unusual of course, they are rather unusual for two horses from the same barn.  That’s what happened today in the 6th race at Saratoga with Strike, owned by Stone Farm, and Strike Me Down, owned by Sam Son Farm.  Both dead heated for second place and only beaten a neck. Continue reading
