Sweet Talking Girl

Sweet, Sweet Talking Girl (look at that kind eye)!   She won her second race today at Pimlico.  Racing toward the front for the mile she got her head in front at the wire.  Congratulations to owners Skeddattle Associates.  She gets extra mints tomorrow!

Sister O’Toole

One mile, one mile and a quarter, no problem for Sister O’Toole yesterday at Belmont.  The furthest she  had won at previously was one mile but the extra distance was no problem for her at all.   Seemed she relished the good turf too.  Congratulations to Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners

Gorgeous Galawi, a beautiful colt bred by Wertheimer et Frere won his first race since coming from France at the beginning of last month.  A  mile and a quarter maiden race (of which there should be many more of) was definitely to his liking at Belmont this afternoon.  Congratulations to owners Wertheimer et Frere.

Tonal Verse Again

It ended up being a field of three after many scratches but small fields are sometimes more tactical.  Carol Cedano did just that and timed her run perfectly to win comfortably.   Congratulations again to owner Michael Sabatine who made the trip again from New York to watch her run.

Wicked Hot Streaks Again

For some reason the song ‘My Girl Lollipop’ always comes to mind when I see her and she begs for her peppermints!!    It was a decent step up for her today at Pimlico and she came through!  Congratulations to owners Francis X. Poggi and Greycross Stable, LLC.
