2/24

31(9)-6(2)-4(2)-5(3)-5(1) $506,950
Better day with regards to fewer 5ths/Also Rans. Highlight of the day was GCh. Fool To Be Smokin' winning the Baguette Stakes (Gr. 3). This was the last win he needed to become Stud-Qualified, however, as long as he continues to show that he is enjoying his racing, he will remain in training, at least until 2024.

A good day for our home-breds as 5 of our 6 winners and 3 of our 4 2nd Place finishers were Starfish-owned Stallions, although one of our winners (GCh. Fool To Be Smokin') wasn't actually bred by us.

Not a bad day considering I was mainly just experimenting with everyone out today.

Wins:
Minor Scene (4yo, Dr. Evil) in a NW2 Allowance - After idling for awhile and then being in training for a month it's nice she was able to come back and break her maiden.

Places:
Aizu (4yo, Demand the Best) in a NW2 Allowance

Shows:
Take Me Now (6yo, TakeMeToHollywood) in a NW3 Allowance - She's been running OK this year, next outing I'll see if she does better when she's only against other mares.

Fourths:
Secret Chord (3yo, Hidden Destiny) in a NW3 Allowance - Switched over to SC since while he was doing fairly well as a 2yo, he no longer seemed to have any interest in flat racing.

Fifths:
Southern Warrior (5yo, Black Warrior) in an Allowance - Another just switched to SC. It was a pretty large field so I have hope she'll do well with more training before her next start.

Also Rans:
Innovation (6yo, Crystal Rainbow) 7th in a NW2 Allowance
For Pete's Sake (5yo, High Chances) 9th in an Allowance - Can't tell if she's done with running or if I just need to give her a long rest and switch things up.
Antares (5yo, Formal Occasion) 9th in the Rose of Kingston Stakes (Gr. 3) - I feel this was a pretty definitive answer that stakes level turf is a no go for her, haha

Congrats Joe on Smokin’ Indeed’s stakes win.

No runners for us today but successfully claimed Spock’s Gold from Lewis. Very pleased to get her as she won the BC Juvenile Fillies’ Turf so should fit well with our breeding programme - she’s the 14th ex-Starfish Stables mare to join our broodmare band!

Successfully claimed GCh. Wonder Woman (6yo, Black Warrior) from Starfish Stables - oh dear I hope you were really ready to sell her Lewis, she is glorious!

I sometimes enter horses in a $50,000 Claiming Race to give them a race (and possibly to try and resurrect their interest in racing), figuring that the chances of a horse being Claimed out of these races are not great (unless it is something along the caliber of a Foolhardy). Having said that, I had 3 horses entered in a $50,000 Claiming Race today and all 3 got Claimed. C'est la vie. I wasn't really planning on selling them but that is a chance you take with these races.

Good luck with her, also to Emma (Spock's Gold) and Shelbie (Dixie's Spurs).
