Called Away Cali brought home a nice victory in her 6 furlong allowance. Looks like Cali is going to follow in Take Me Away's hoof prints and became a solid sprint runner.

Hollywood Drive finished sixth but that was a improvement from her last race. Keep tweaking with her equipment and see how she does at longer distances on the grass.

Finally a great turn! Seven of nine hit the board. Even a few 2yo's did well.

Carry the Day (3yo, V is for Victory) ran 1st/6 in her NW3.
Pacific Theatre (2yo, Rock of Gibraltar) had an equipment change and finished 1st/9 in her Maiden.

Rock Stardom (5yo, Devil May Care) was 3rd/9 in his claimer and stays home.

Hypothesis (2yo, What's Your Point) ran 4th/8 in his NW3.
Blood Phoenix (5yo, Akhetnaten) was 4th/8 in her NW3.
Becoming the Bull (4yo, Holy Bull) managed 4th/9 in an OA.
Tiara Tango (4yo, High on Love) was 4th/6 in her OA.

11(10)-1(1)-1-0-2(2) $680,500

Apart from Calle d'Oro's win in the G1 Preakness Stakes, a very poor day for our runners.

G.Ch. Calle d'Oro, (3yo, Golden Text x Back Streets) in the G1 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico. His 6th SW overall, he now needs only one more SW to become Stud-Qualified. He topped the $1m mark in earnings for this year, the 13th Starfish horse to reach this mark this year.

Lucky's Girl, (2yo, My Lucky Day x Whirlagirl) in an NW3 at Woodbine.

Ch. DreamALilDream, (3yo, Smart Strike x Wonderful Dreams) in the G1 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico.
Ch. Golden Miracle, (3yo, Golden Text x Miraculous Love) in the Ung Sir Barton Stakes at Pimlico.

Also Ran
Ch. Actors Strike, (4yo, TakeMeToHollywood x Blackout)
Bandita, (3yo, Spock x Bandia an Gealach)
Ch. Crystal Warrior, (3yo, Black Warrior x Magic Crystal)
G.Ch. Hogsmeade, (4yo, Highland Magic x Blarneystone Lane) - A disappointing performance, he probably didn't get the distance.
Ministry of Magic, (3yo, Magic Glory x Must be a Mystery)
Ch. Rock of Truth, (3yo, Rock of Gibraltar x Confession)
G.Ch. Star of Wonder, (4yo, Harvard Bound x Wonder's Miracle)

Only one out - 3yo Hermelinda won her steeplechase. Holy Bull's offspring seems to be good in jumping.

Recent purchase Gonnabeamightyking (3yo Long Live The King) was 3rd in the Grade 1 St James' Palace Stakes

Glad he's running well for you! I think he needed a change of scenery. =)

Not much of note, except for Helios's 2nd in the Preakness. He was 2nd in the Derby too. This is actually the best we've ever done in the triple crown races, since we mostly have grass ponies (you can run AND eat.) Super pleased with him.

Not our best day, but still not bad:

13(7) - 4(1) - 4(2) - 0 - 0


Claire de Lune (5yo, Highland Laird x Perchance to Dream) won her OA, her first win with us after her recent purchase (as a brood prospect).

Ch. Ring of Darkness (5yo, Ring of Fire x Highland Ebony) won her OA, which was also her first win with us after her purchase from the same auction as Claire.  This earned her the new title.

War of the Roses (3yo, V is for Victory x Glitter Rose) won his NW1.

GCh. Cuchulain (5yo, Irish River x Au Naturelle) won the G1 Prince of Wales Stakes, meaning he now only needs 2 stakes wins of any level to reach studhood.


Gonewiththewind (2yo, Gotta Go x Playful Breeze) finished second in her NW2, her first time on the board in 3 starts.

Walking On Air (2yo, Express Yourself x Magic Supreme) finished second in her NW2.  She hasn't finished less than second in 3 starts.

Ch. Rahndezvous (3yo, Rahy x Springwalker) finished second in the ungraded Sir Barton Stakes, earning his new title.

The Lucky Few (3yo, The Fighting Fifty x Delicate Luck) finished second in the G2 Genuine Risk, her first stakes start.


Pistolwhip was 5th in the G1 St. James' Palace Stakes.
Such A Fool was 5th in the G1 Preakness Stakes.
Ch. Sign of the Cross was 6th in the G1 Preakness Stakes.
Cell Block Tango was 6th in her NW2.
Ch. Allnighter II was 9th in the G1 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes.
