Sweet Theresa was the second winner this week for Team Valor et al (Gypsy’s Warning won the Grade III Eatontown at Monmouth Park last Monday).  She won handily at Colonial Downs and just missed equalling the track record by two-tenths of a second!  Congratulations to them and good ride by Luis Garcia.{jcomments on}

Today’s press

Both of these articles are in today’s Thoroughbred Daily News Improving Check the Label strikes again for Motion. Brereton Jones’ homebred Check the Label slipped through a narrow opening in the stretch and unleashed a powerful closing rally to win the $150,000 Sands Point Stakes (G2) on Monday at Belmont Park.  The Stormin Fever fillyContinue reading

Happy Memorial Day!
