And the Winners Are...

  • 24 Comments

The results are in, and the stallions that we will be following in 2010 are: Bernardini, Bluegrass Cat, Bellamy Road, Henny Hughes, and Rockport Harbor. Thanks to everyone for voting and special thanks to those who suggested stallions. Beginning today, I will no longer be reporting workouts from our 3-year olds. I will continue to preview 3-year old races, until we get our first 2-year old starter. At that time, the 3-year olds will be moved to the "Other Entries" section.

Hearted Beats Faster than Deanaallen'skitten

The turf was firm, Inmyheartforever (Medaglia d'Oro - Gerri n Jo Go by Top Command), Jersey Rambler (Stroll - Charmedandangerous by Northern Spur (IRE)), Goalkeeper (Arch - Mood Music by Kingmambo), and Lakeside Chapel (Chapel Royal - Ceridwen by Lord Avie) were scratched. AEs So Very Happy (Elusive Quality - Ingot's Dance Away by Gate Dancer) and Wickedology (Wild and Wicked - Ecology by Unbridled's Song) drew into the race. So Very Happy took the early money, but Deanaallen'skitten (Kitten's Joy - Miss Carmella (IRE) by Carmelite House) was the 7-5 choice at post time. The rest of the fillies were pretty much ignored by the bettors. Deanaallen'skitten and Harlan's Princess (Harlan's Holiday - Pocketbook Passion by Siphon (BRZ)) both received strong warm-ups. Twilight Memory (Smart Strike - Southern Swing by Dixieland Band) made a good impression as they moved onto the turf course. So Very Happy was a tad reluctant to load. No one seemed to want the lead, Hearted (Grand Reward - Shakespearean by Theatrical (IRE)) took it, followed by Alluring Power (Milwaukee Brew - Appealing Power by Valid Appeal). Deanaallen'skitten was unhurried, near the back. Twilight Memory and Cocktail Cruise (Hennessy - Ocean Queen by Zilzal) both took a stab at the leader, but Hearted continued up front. Alluring Power made a run at her late, but came up a head short. Deanaallen'skitten was really flying late, made up a ton of ground, but couldn't do better than third. Watch the Replay.
