Stall Street Journal – Entry #24

Wasn’t it great to see 50,000 fans in the stands for the Belmont Stakes? It was a terrific day of racing, and maybe some of those spectators will have been “jazzed” enough to venture back to the track again to experience the greatest of all sports. It boggles the mind as to why this sport is not more popular among Americans as it possesses excitement, beauty, athleticism on a number of different fronts, strategy, personal opinion, great theatre, colorful personalities without the absolute egos/poor sportsmanship found in other major league sports, nice venues, being outdoors and active, following athletic heroes, and more. Spread the word about this great sport…better yet, take someone to a day at the races!


6/4: She’s a Dancing, a four year old CATIENUS filly won a 7 ½ furlong turf event by two lengths at Indiana Downs. She was bred by Hermitage Farm, LLC and is owned by William Sympson. At Presque Isle Downs, TOUCH GOLD’S Seize the Fire was victorious at a mile for his seventh win. He was bred by Ramona Bass and AA Seeligson and is owned and trained by Burton Sipp.

6/6: ALPHABET SOUP’S Greyrunfornv, a four year old gelding, broke his maiden for breeder Harold Plumley and owner Rey Wan Racing. BOB AND JOHN had a winner named Hong Kong Harry, who won his fifth race for Harry Kassap, LLC. CATIENUS horses continue to win at Finger Lakes Racetrack, where Cat a Bit won by 6 ½ lengths for owner/breeder Edward McGettigan, Jr. And what must be a feisty gelding named Brat, won at Presque Isle Downs for his sire CONGAREE in a 1 1/16 mile event by two lengths. Willaim Ryan is the owner/breeder.

6/7: At Finger Lakes, Flag Handler, another CATIENUS homebred for Edward McGettigan won in the slop for her third win. Cat’s Playmate won her fifth race. This daughter of CATIENUS was bred by Flying Zee Stables and is owned by Adrienne Rohena. CATIENUS did well on synthetics as well on this day, as Vision of Roses won his thirteenth race for breeder Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey and owner/trainer Dale Greenwood. UTOPIA had another maiden winner in Bettina’s Rose, bred by Cherokee Equine Int’l and owned by Rose and Crown Stable.

6/8: Very exciting to see progeny of UTOPIA win at Belmont on Belmont Stakes Day! His Ah Gaga won a $65K MSW race at seven furlongs for Sisters in Racing Stable and Rhapsody Farm. Across the country at Prairie Meadows, Lady Panther broke her maiden in a $34K event. She was sired by CATIENUS and bred by Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey and owned by Hubel Farms, Inc. Act One Scene One, a four year old gelding by BOB AND JOHN, won at Suffolk Downs for breeder Michael Evans and owner Vincent Decarlo.

6/9: Those ALPHABET SOUP’S sure stay sound, don’t they? Delago, a seven year old gelding won his seventh race at 1 1/8 miles at Arlington Park. He was bred by John Gunther and Don Winton and is owned by C.E. Salazar. Tale of Utopia, a UTOPIA filly bred by Howard C. Nolan and owned by Al and Bill Ulwilling, broke her maiden at Canterbury Park. Finally, a round of drinks for everyone! Bartender, a three year old gelding by CATIENUS, sped to a three length victory at Calder for Ramirez Racing. He was bred by Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey.

Congratulations to all horses, trainers, owners and breeders on these exciting wins!
