Stall Street Journal Entry 6

Monday, February 4, 2013

Our mission for this column is not to bore with the mundane or overload with statistics, but to talk from the heart about things that should be of interest to our friends in the sport, whether it’s in relation to McMahon’s Thoroughbreds or not.  This week, it is exciting news about an offspring of our new stallion, TEUFLESBERG that we’d like to share. The three year old filly is named, “Lady Asano.” She could be any kind.

On January 27th, “Lady Asano” made her 2013 debut (second career start) in a 1 & 1/16 mile $56,000 MSW race at Santa Anita Park. She all but ran away and hid from her competition, crossing the finish line some seven lengths best at odds of 20 – 1. She made it look easy, as she “was steadied between horses passing the stands for the first time, raced unhurried down the backstretch, moved up three wide around the far turn, felt one tap of the whip, drew clear and was under a long hold nearing the wire.”

The owner’s phone probably did not stop ringing for days after this event, as seven figure sums must have been seriously tossed about. Buying syndicates, trip handicappers, and number crunchers had to love the outing by this talented, untapped filly.

What did we like about the performance? Put simply, everything. She toyed with a talented field and inhaled them in the stretch. It was a ZENYATTA-type effort…..last to first, won with something left, and had Trevor Denman exalting her attributes in this “H-U-U-U-G-E” performance.

This three year old daughter of TEUFLESBERG is out of the Lac Ouimet mare, Golden Tour. She races for Hronis Racing LLC and is trained by John Sadler.

Keep an eye on “Lady Asano”…you might see her in the Kentucky Oaks.

It is becoming more and more clear --- TEUFLESBERG seems to be capable of throwing a classy horse….filly or colt, going short or long.


TEUFLESBERG ‘s three year old filly, “Devil’s Blush,” powered to a six length sprint victory on January 25th at Oaklawn Park in a $30,000 maiden affair.

 Another TEUFLESBERG sophomore filly romped home by five comfortable lengths over a mile at Aqueduct in a $65,000 MSW race. Her name is “Girl Code.” She, too, looked good and may earn black-type in near future.

UTOPIA had a visually impressive winner last week, as well. Her name is “Three for Two,” and she won her maiden at Parx by over three lengths in a 1 & 1/16th mile race.

A fast three year old CATIENUS colt broke his maiden in fine fashion at Gulfstream Park for Ken and Sarah Ramsey and trainer Wesley Ward on 1/30. “Off the Page” completed the $52,000 five furlong turf sprint in :55:2, while outdistancing his rivals by 3 ¼ lengths.
