Honorable Shoutouts

Four of the seconds we had today deserve honorable Shout Outs!  Untamed Domain was caught with a lot of kick back from the grass throwing up from a softened turf course in the American Turf Stakes-G2 at Churchill today but still got to second place behind winner Maraud who won the Palm Beach Stakes-G3 lastContinue reading

Second Win For Peach Of A Gal

Peach Of A Gal had to work had to run down Firth (who we used to have) who was being ridden very craftily from the front.  As she was a longer price than most she was ignored, until everyone realized it may be too late!   Jorge Vargas, Jr. cranked Peach up and she made itContinue 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


Gotta love that name – simple and fun!  Bouncy won today in her first try, at Keeneland no less.   Not breaking the best Jose Ortiz bided his time; he had to go four wide into the stretch but she proved much the best of these maiden runners today.  Congratulations to owner George Strawbridge, Jr. andContinue reading


Our Second Animal Kingdom colt to win a race is Nakamura, who won his first race over the weekend.  It was his second start and he came with a sweeping run to beat the long time leader to the wire at Laurel on their opening day of turf racing.  Congratulations to owners Bill Crager andContinue reading

Scholar Athlete – Wow!

In what was probably the toughest race so far for him, Scholar Athlete showed his grit and determination to win his sixth race at Aqueduct today.  It got pretty tight in the last sixteenth with about five horses across but Trevor McCarthy kept his place and he won by a neck with the fast finishingContinue reading

Three In A Row For Thewayiam

Versatile Thewayiam won her third race in a row – and her second consecutive Grade 3; this time the Herecomesthebride Stakes at Gulfstream Park.  This French-bred $18,600 yearling was a bargain for her original owners and has been great fun for new owners Great Point Stables, Michael Dubb, The Elkstone Group and Bethlehem Stables. She’sContinue reading

First And Second

I said to a few people that it would be lovely if we were first and second in the fifth race at Tampa today.  Always difficult to have a favorite to run better than the other when you have two in the race but we did end up being first and second!  Scholar Athlete ranContinue reading

Lonely Weekend

It’s still sloppy at Laurel today as although a bit warmer the air is still damp so nothing had dried out.  Thankfully it didn’t deter Lonely Weekend from winning his first race, strongly ridden by Feargal Lynch.  Congratulations to owners and breeders Wertheimer et Frere.
