An AWESOME day! I don’t think we’ve ever had such a great run. Sent out 9 with 3 winners and another 3 on the board.

[color=red]Surroundsound Love (Double Cross) finished 6th/8. She definitely needs distance.
[color=blue]Pepper Bomb (create) was in over his head and ran 9th/12 in the G2 Sanford Stakes. Back to the Allowances he goes.
[color=red]Daytona Weekend (A.P. Indy) was beaten by just a nose in the G2 Schuylerville against a field of 12. I’m so sending mares to Indy next year, haha.
THE HIGHLIGHT: [color=red]Crack the Bell (Dark Continent) beat a SCARY, extremely talented field of 10 in the G1 Phoenix Stakes. She’s already a champion, and just handed her sire his 3rd stakes winner (his 2nd having won the G2 Sanford today!).

Just purchased from the mixed auction, [color=red]French Resistance won her NW3.
[color=green]Time to Shine won his Open Allowance.
[color=blue]Glorioso and [color=red]Passing Fancy ran 4th-14th/14 in their Open Allowance. Passing Fancy will be retired to broodmare duties next year.

Mixed results, but good week for one of our stallions.

Joey the Giant (Giant’s Causeway) was 2nd in his NW2.
Take it in Stride (Strider) was 7th in his maiden.
Amazonian Spirit (Lasting Spirit) was 2nd in his stakes debut.
Forbidden City (King David) and Queen of Sheba (King David) crashed and burned in their stakes debut, finishing 6th and 9th respectively.
Highlight of the day by far was Lonely Victory (Dark Continent), who won the Gr. 2 Sanford Stakes.
Scarecrow (Highland Wizard) and Timbuktu (Dark Continent) went 3-4 in the Phoenix Stakes.

This week was an amazing week for our young stallion Dark Continent.  Lonely Victory became his first MSW and his daughter, Black Storm West’s Crack the Bell, smoked the boys (mine included!) in the Gr. 1 Phoenix Stakes.  Really, really pleased with his first crop.

Heading over to the 3yos
Trouble’s My Name was 3rd in his NW3.
It’s a Girl and Long Island 88 bombed in their NW3
Sludge was second and Dagnabit was 4th in their OA.
Arizona Dream (High Chances) held her own against the boys and came in 2nd in the Gr. 2 Barnard Baruch Handicap.  Things Like Fate didn’t fare so well, finishing 9th.
Odyessus seems to be coming into his own.  He finished 2nd in the Gr. 3 Autumn Stakes.

Congrats also go out to Godolphin Stable’s High Risk for winning his 2nd straight Gr. 1 this week. As well as to CDS’s HighjackThis for her allowance win in Arlington this week.

We had a good day sending out 14 and only 3 didn’t win some kind of paycheck!

Congrats Lindsay on Glow In The Darks win! :slight_smile:

That’s 5 SW and 2 MSW for Nightfight and 7.1 Silver ranking…almost to GOLD guys!  So excited for my boy.

Bah! I finally got knocked off the top of the leader board for money earning stable for the year. Didn’t do too bad seeing as I have a third of the racers the new leader Godolphin has!
