Our friend/client, George Strawbridge, Jr. bred a couple of fillies that raced well this past Saturday. They both finished 2nd in G2 races. KITTEN'S POINT (Kitten’s Joy/Rendezvous Point) was just nosed out in the G2 HONEY BEE @ Gulfstream Park & MAGIC UNION (Dixie Union/Magic Peak), stayed close to the winner Close Hatches, in the G11 AZERI @ Oaklawn Park. Nicoma Bloodstock assisted Mr. Strawbridge with the matings of these outstanding fillies.
Mill Ridge Farm is very pleased to inform that KEEP UP has adapted to his new role of stallion with his first two mares examined in foal...... very fertile and popular.
SCHOOLOFHARDROCKS returns to racing on Saturday (March 8) @ Santa Anita in the G11 San Felipe S. The 2011 colt out of the mare Miss Chapin was raised at Mill Ridge Farm on behalf of our friends/clients, John & Jerry Amerman. SCHOOLOFHARDROCKS won a Maiden Special @ DelMar last August.
‘TDN Rising Star’ Diamond Bachelor (War Front/Seasoned) (B-Jamm Ltd) gets a second try on the dirt when he makes his 2014 debut Saturday in Santa Anita’s GII Robert B. Lewis S. The handsome colt, who stamped himself as a turf star early in his juvenile campaign, was last seen finishing ninth in the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Nov. 2. Typically a frontrunner who displays a lot of gate speed, he stumbled out of the 12-hole in that dirt debut and had a troubled trip from that point on.
