4/30
« on: April 30, 2014, 11:53:11 am »
Could have gone better but overall not too bad.

Wonder's Princess finished a respectable fifth in the Ungr King's Point Handicap. In a field of mostly colts I'm satisfied with how she did. She's a gutsy mare with good bloodlines.

Swell Time, won his claiming race and came home with us. I'm over the moon about it. A son of Arda he's raced 3 times with first, second and fourth places. We'll try him out at 6 furlongs next time out.

in A Tizzy, a Tiznow mare also brought home a paycheck today with a second in her allowance.

Flawless Dancer, by Jazz It Up finished fourth. She faded at the finish, but had been in the lead from the 8 furlong pole.

Fire Magic, (4yo, Highland Magic x Flames of War) in the G3 George C. Hendrie Stakes at Woodbine. She won her first race for us since we bought her in the Stillwater Farms Auction.
Nightmare Dreamer, (2yo, Black Warrior x Sheza Dreamer) in an NW2 at Belmont.
Ch. Song Thief, (3yo, Cool Thief x Play Those Tunes) in the G3 Champion Fillies in Australia. Her 3rd win this year, all SW.

Most amazing day of the year!

I claimed 2yo filly Winter Queen, a daughter of Gold ranked NCh. Queen which I bought last year at a September auction for $750,500, in foal to Point Given, and sadly her filly was stillborn. So I'm more than happy to have Queen's 2yo filly! Winter Queen is by FFCh. Foolhardy, so it's a classical Worth/Rogue cross and amazing pedigree. The filly won her claimer by 2 1/2 lengths and we're excited to bring her home.

My Toni's Pride, a recently claimed steeplechase colt also won his race, by impressive 8 1/2 lengths.

3yo Esprit d'Escalier easily won her starter allowance.

3yo Fine Glass finished 4th/6 in a NW1. Time to ship her home from Australia...

3yo Creme Carmela was 4th/8 in NW1. Maybe we'll think of jump trials.

3yo Mananita was 5th/6 in open allowance.
