Empressof The Nile Wins Zagora Stakes

Please racing Gods, bring back long distance grass races as they are needed!  Today Empressof The Nile was very comfortable with the mile and a half Zagora Stakes at Aqueduct and although the winning margin was a half length it was an easy half a length and the placed horses were stacked up behind her,Continue reading


It just goes to show that if you believe in your horse you have to take a shot.  When I looked at the field in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf she was having to face today I was in awe.  Graded Stakes winners from Europe and the US and Sharing had just won herContinue reading

With Herself

She has lovely European breeding but has found it tough over here to win but it all worked out last night at Presque Isle for With Herself.   She’d never tried the Tapeta before except here at Fair Hill – it suited her fine for racing too!  Congratulations to owners Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners.

Lucky Jingle

From Tonalist’s first crop Lucky Jingle has already won on both surfaces.  She won her maiden on the turf in August and won her allowance on the dirt today.  She won well too over the 7f distance – good to see the front runners go a bit fast for the distance as you know thereContinue reading

Strike Me Down

A nice start to our Saturday racing with Strike Me Down, who has not run in almost a year, winning his comeback race in good fashion.  I was a bit worried about Trevor McCarthy sitting pretty and confident with a foe looming on the outside but of course he knows best and roused Strike MeContinue reading
