Nice win for Kowhai, Jase  ;)  Going to have to see what to change with Von Lich, or maybe the turf just threw him off a bit in his last race.

Voiceinaphotograph (National Post)won his 7.5f NW2 allowance breaking his maiden!
Igotafeeling (Worth My While) scored another win (3 out of 4 races this year) in a 5.5f allowance for 3yo F

NCh. Von Lichtenstein was second in the 9.5f Prince of Wales Stakes. Nice job to Kowhai for getting him, but I guess no American or Canadian TC winner this year  :(
Dream in Color (National Post) placed in his 6f maiden for 3yo+

Also had a couple fourths with Double The Devil in a 9f NW2 allowance, and Actors Guild in the 9f Gr. 2 Lucky Cigar Stakes.

Fabulous, fabulous day for us:

Sent two out, both colts in stakes races.

3YO Exit Poll (x Irish River) WON his first stakes race in the G3 East Essex Stakes.  He has only been entered in steeplechasing races thanks to FF's random decision, so I'm happy to see him doing well.  This is his second stakes attempt, but the other (20f) was far too great of a distance.  We'll see where this guy can go from here!

2YO Ducati (x Magic Cross) just secured the elusive G1 win that stumps most of my colts (including the colt by his same sire who was my closest to succeeding) - winning the G1 Nunthorpe Stakes with style.  This is his second stakes win in a row, and both times he has beaten some of the 2YO names that stand out to me (Boo Radley, Gambling Fool, Fiery Foxx, etc).  This boy appears to be the real deal, and I'm thrilled to have him in our ranks.  If this continues, I might have to start looking into nominations - a thing I've avoided in the past thanks to lack of funds and believeable talent...  Fingers crossed...

ETA: I just looked at his nominations tab (a page I typically avoid, see above), and apparently he's been nominated for a majority of the major races already, presumably by his breeder - Edgewood Stud.  Wow.  This opens up a whole new world of possibilities.  This little small-time stable's world is spinning with the possibilities now.   :P  Oh please let this streak of luck continue!

Only one out; Embellished finished 2nd/6 in a NW1, again her highest speed figure. Her dam is Ch. Eternity (S), which was being sold at the recent auction by Final Furlong, and found a new home at Stillwater Farms. Of course we wanted to have her at Clicker Lab but were also bidding on Ellejolet and Cabernet, two 3yo fillies :)

Sent out 11 runners, had 4 wins, 1 second, 1 third, 1 fourth and 4 out of the money.

Redemption Song (2yo, CREATED) breaking his maiden in a Claiming Race in England - No takers, however, so he will continue to run in our colors.
Ch. Giant's Debate (3yo, Giant's Causeway) in the G2 Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga. Her 3rd win in her last four races, including 2 G2W. This win put her into the Ch. class.
Ch. Pointed Question (3yo, What's Your Point) in the G2 Lucky Cigar Stakes at Saratoga. His 2nd win in the 2 races he has run in our colors. Like Giant's Debate, this win put him into the Ch. class.
GCh. AndLikeThatHesGone (4yo, Major's Flight) in the G2 Highland Pride Stakes at Saratoga. His 3rd consecutive SW leaves him 2 SW away from being stallion-qualified. This win put him into the GCh. class.

Ch. Dark Topaz (3yo, Dark Continent) in the G2 Bison City Stakes at Fort Erie.

NCh. Lucky Streak (4yo, Rahy) in the G3 Purity Cadbury Hobart Cup in Australia.

Devil's Flight (2yo, Major's Flight) 5/13 in an NW2 at Woodbine.
Saucy Magician (2yo, Magic Glory) 4/7 in an OA at Arlington.
Ch. Half Baked (5yo, No Duplicate) 14/14 in an OA at Woodbine.
Bracton (2yo, Rumor Has It) 5/14 in an NW2 at Saratoga.
Magic Roundabout (2yo, Magic Glory), 12/14 in the G1 Nunthorpe Stakes in England.

Pretty good day here, sent out 10 and only 4 out of the money with both stakes horses in the top 3

Wishing on Sunday 3yo by As You Wish won the G-2 San Clemente stakes, not only makking this her first stakes win, but knocking her up to Champion status !

South of Saturn a 3yo filly I claimed recently by Highland Wizard in a SC,WET,10f OA , guess she likes long distance! Good to know. :)
She was the only filly in the top 3

Blood Lance my 5yo boy by crossroads who Hasn't done much this season in the G-2 ,SC,Highland Pride Stakes 15.5f. His longest race to date, guess I found what he likes, maybe he will race next yr too!

Artists Studio another claimed filly, in a SC,14f NW-3, looks like she was in 2nd until 8f, might have to try to find shorter next race.
Cops Fever in an OA sprint , maybe a little more length next time.

Thru Traffic (giants causeway) in an NW-1 for 2yos

And just out of the money
Midnight Blues (Gimme a shot) in an NW-1 2yos 6th
Magic carpet ride 10th and Sunday glory 7th in a full SC, OA 12f long, guess she didn't like mixed company.(switched due to jump trials)
And 2yo filly Twilight Haze (octagonal) 6th in an OA mixed, I think I need to put her with girls next time.

Starfish, congrats on Pointed Question reaching champion status! I hope he continues to do well for you.

Rakatack (2yo, Strike It Rich) had her first run today and she won it! Can't ask for more then that, she's a monster too, already 17hh

Princess Pride (3yo, High On Love) in a NW3 allowance. This is 2 wins in a row for her

Trippi Bree (4yo, Crystal Rainbow) took some time off and it seems to have made a difference!

Avondale (3yo, Irish RIver) in a NW2 allowance. I also gave him some time off, he enjoyed it

Alfalfa Sprouts *(4yo, Cigar) in an open allowance. We tried some new equipment on her, she seems to like it

Rose Of Portland (Moonopoly) in a NW3 allowance. This gal is unpredicatble so i'll take a 3rd!

Hishi Natalie in a NW2 allowance

Sunday Paper (Sunday Silence) in the East Essex Stakes. I may give him some time off, he has been running regularly in England.

Nice win for Kowhai, Jase  ;)

Bah I hate spoiling a party...! But thanks... And at least you were beaten by the best filly this year? In all honesty I've been willing this to happen for a while! ;)

Super happy with KOWHAI and her win over Von Lichtenstein in the Prince of Wales Stakes!

Only one.

Acapulco Gold ran in 7.5f NW3 Allowance for 3yo+ and placed 2nd/14. I'm glad he's starting to move those short legs again.
