News and Notes

Celebrate Alysheba's birthday with this slideshow.

The last time that Acadian Blues (Bluegrass Cat - Dancing Gulch by Gulch) and Iscar (Bernardini - Crimson Palace (SAF) by Elliodor (FR)) tried to run, their start was lost to the wind. This time, it was a cut cable that caused a cancelation. They will have to wait to race another day. Miss Crabtree (filly; Bluegrass Cat - Biogio's Beauty by Distorted Humor) also stayed in the barn with the Aqueduct cancelation.
