Harris Farms’ Record Highs All Heart in Feature

ARCADIA, Calif. (April 20, 2017)–Harris Farms’ homebred Record Highs broke sharply, pressed the pace throughout and gamely held sway late in winning Thursday’s $56,000 Santa Anita allowance feature by a half length while covering 6 ½ furlongs down the track’s hillside turf course in 1:14.53.  Ridden by Tyler Baze and trained by Carla Gaines, Record Highs, a 4-year-old California-bred gelding by Heatseeker out of the multiple stakes winning High Brite mare Super High, notched his second win from 11 career starts.

“He dug in and ran like his momma today,” said Baze, who guided Record Highs to a fourth place finish down the hill on March 24.  “He showed a lot of heart when that other horse (7-5 favorite, Heat) came to him.  He ran great.”

Off at 7-1 in a field of nine California-bred or sired older horses, Record Highs paid $16.00, $5.20 and $4.00.

With the winner’s share of $33,600, Record Highs, whose dam banked $669,668, increased his earnings to $114,840.

Ridden by Corey Nakatani, favored Heat was unhurried early, found a seam while three deep at the dirt crossing turning for home but proved second best on the day, finishing one length in front of Los Gatos.  Off at 7-5, Heat paid $3.20 and $2.60.

Los Gatos (also bred by Harris Farms), who was ridden by Rafael Bejarano, was off at 9-2 and paid $4.00 to show.

Fractions on the race were 22.43, 45.29 and 1:08.47.

Lucky Pulpit Filly Fetches $360,000

Hip 6, a Lucky Pulpit filly

A filly by Lucky Pulpit, who recorded the fastest time at the Barretts under tack preview, brought a finally bid of $360,000 from Dennis R. O’Neill.

The filly had worked a furlong in :09 4/5 in preparation for the Barretts sale.

Bred by The Cole Ranch in California, the filly who breezed in :09 4/5 was the only horse in the catalog by the late Lucky Pulpit, sire of two-time Horse of the Year California Chrome. Andy Havens’ Havens Bloodstock Agency consigned the youngster as Hip 6.

Now named Californiabyanose, the filly is out of the Mr. Greeley mare Nine to Five Lady, from the family of Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner Concern. Californiabyanose sold for $42,000 to John Brocklebank, as agent, at last year’s Barretts October sale.

Desperate Times and Freedom Quest enjoying success as jumpers in the show world

Desperate Times (a.k.a “Hashtag”) an 8yr. old gelding By Redatorre out of the High Brite mare Don’t Despair is showing great potential under the care of new owner Courtney Gharibeh, earning several ribbons at the local shows, the partnership jumped clean rounds and placed 3rd in the Columbus Day Classic Mini Prix at W&KRP Open Show in Sanger, Ca. this past November. They also did well at the Almaden Farms Horse Show held in Watsonville, Ca. placing 3rd in the C &N Tractor Class, 1st in the 2’7 jumper class, and also participated in the lead line class with her 3yr old daughter Addyson in the saddle. They are looking forward to a promising 2015 show season.(below)




Freedom Quest affectionately known as Quest is an 8yr. old gelding by Soft Gold out of the mare Northern Freedom. A winner at three in 5 starts had limited success at the race track, but has found his calling as a great companion and show horse. The promising partnership between Emily Colvard and Quest has shown potential competing in the 2’6 jumper classes and hopes to have a great 2015 show season. below




Both are working with trainer Rene Beggs from River View Farms located in Sanger, Ca.
