With a few entries this past weekend, Stonehaven was hoping for some success at racetracks from coast to coast. Luck be have it, its was 3 for 3.
Stonehaven Bred and Sold had 2 entries in over the weekend.
On Saturday, Conquestportaponti was in for his 2nd start MSW at Gulfstream Park. For trainer Mark Casse, he ran a nice race with a fast finish. After a disqualification, ConquestPortaponti graduated! OBS Sales October sale Topper for $250,000, we have high hopes for this guy. He couldn't be in better hands!
The second was a filly named Mining Diamonds. As a yearling she was handy but fast looking. After two separate 2YO sale previews, she finished her freshman sales circuit as a $125,000 2YO to conditioner Peter Miller for owners Gary Barber, Leslie Moonves and Kevin Tusjihara. After a summer and fall break, it took her a few races to catch her stride. She showed a tremendous effort wiring a maiden at Santa Anita Park yesterday in her 4 career start. You can watch the replay here, its always nice to see these horses once they've left the nest. Albeit in a video on the computer monitor was nice none the less! http://mobile.santaanita.com/?video/replays/2016-04/10/1
We wish these owners the best of luck in the future! Thank you for giving them the opportunity!
Sunday afternoon up at Woodbine, luck would strike again. Leigh Court (MGSW) added another tally to her already high marks winning the Whimsical Stakes (G3) by 2 lengths. The Grand Slam mare o/o Padmore is half sister to Stonehaven owned resident mare, Beckles Road (Smart Strike) who, coincidentally, just foaled a big filly by Bernardini! Congratulations to such a great mare and her connections!
