Thanks Hilda. I was very pleasantly surprised, although I thought that Ch. Fool To Be Smokin' had the better chance out of our three runners.

34(20)-5(1)-2(1)-4(1)-5(3) $1,661,050

It was great winning the Kentucky Derby and getting 4 other winners but the poor OTB % ( less than 50%) indicates that we still have way too many horses in our Stable (351 racehorses alone) and can't dedicate enough time to all of them. We will probably look into doing another clearance Auction in the summer and whichever horses don't sell in the Auction will probably be Retired,

One nice thing is that our 2YO's seem to be more forward than in previous years. We haven't had a ton of 2YO winners (3) but our 2YO OTB% so far is over 70%. It is also nice to see one of our new young Stallions, NCh. Worthy Victor doing so well with his first crop. He has already had 4 winners out of 11 runners.

Wins:
Ch. Secrets Squared (4yo, Secretsarebound) in an Allowance
Ch. Wonder Woman (5yo, Black Warrior) in an Allowance
Ch. Miracle Flight (5yo, Major's Flight) in an Allowance
Dancing Rumor (2yo, Rumor Has It) in an Allowance
Ch. Power of Secrets (3yo, Mantle of Power) in the Kentucky Derby (Gr. 1)

Places:
Weapon (2yo, Lucky Streak) in a NW2 Allowance
Ch. Mae West (4yo, Mantle of Power) in the Tattersalls Gold Cup (Gr. 1)

Shows:
Naval Dawn (2yo, In The Navy) in a NW3 Allowance
Ch. Matching Strides (4yo, Strider) in a NW3 Allowance
Arc de Triomphe (2yo, French Ruby) in an Allowance
GCh. Epiphany (4yo, Blue Smoke) in the Tattersalls Gold Cup (Gr. 1)

Fourths:
Tottenham are Back (3yo, Tottenham Hotspur) in an Allowance
GCh. Flaming Text (5yo, Golden Text) in an Allowance
Ch. Tau Alpha C (5yo, Spock) in the Citgo Distaff Turf Mile (Gr. 3)
GCh. Footloose (4yo, Foolhardy) in the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic (Gr. 1)

I'm not meant to have money.
