Written by Sue Kenny on November 6, 2017

After an encouraging first start when she was second just over three weeks ago when she had a wide trip, Frechette made up for it today by leading from start to finish.  She’s by El Padrino out of Amie’s Legend who we had here and remember well.  Congratulations to Richard Golden and Two Legends Farm

Arles Wire To Wire

Written by Sue Kenny on November 4, 2017

Arles is now worth more than she was a few moments ago after wiring the field in the Long Island Handicap (Grade 3) at Aqueduct.  She and her jockey Nik Juarez controlled the race the whole one mile and a half and still looked strong at the finish.  She leaves early tomorrow morning to be

Written by Sue Kenny on November 4, 2017

In what was the biggest step up in his young career Untamed Domain ran a fantastic race in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf yesterday.  While the winner had a smooth inside trip Untamed Domain was a little slow from the gate, which is not unusual for him, had to come from the back of the

Bye Girls

Written by Sue Kenny on November 3, 2017

Very bittersweet goodbye last night for Quidura and Miss Temple City.  I stayed to watch them load on their way to the Select Sale at Fasig Tipton on Monday, and then bailed, as I knew I would cry and van drivers don’t like people doing that while they are trying to get organized!  Keith Cooper

Point System’s Third Win

Written by Sue Kenny on October 24, 2017

Wow, is she consistent.  She won her third race yesterday from six starts but has been placed in all the others, bar a race at the Dueling Grounds when she didn’t start well.  As mentioned once before she didn’t start her career until this year as a three year old in March but the late

Written by Sue Kenny on October 22, 2017

Another who was encountering firm ground for the first time (see Shahroze), Thewayiam skipped over it today at Keeneland.  She was a little erratic in the stretch but held on to win by a neck.  It was the first start in the US for this French bred and raced filly owned by Great Point Stables,

Shahroze

Written by Sue Kenny on October 22, 2017

Can’t get more European breeding than he is, being by Holy Roman Emperor out of a Bahri mare and bred by HRH The Aga Khan no less, Shahroze earned his first win from his first start in the United States.  He’s a three year old gelding and the mile and a quarter distance was to

Clever Mind Wins Maryland Million Nursery

Written by Sue Kenny on October 21, 2017

Sometimes inexperience can pay off.  Clever Mind was having his first start today against two year olds who had already run, they went very fast up front so he just hung out the back until everyone sorted themselves out, swept by them and hit the wire by about three lengths.  Nik Juarez, the jockey was

Howie Again!

Written by Sue Kenny on September 30, 2017

Photo by Jim McCue.  Just Howard has got to be one, if not THE most laid back horses in the barn.  He’s still a colt but doesn’t know it.  He’s beside a filly and doesn’t care; in fact at one time he was behind a filly with the grate open and Lisa, who groomed him
