Settling into a ground saving trip in third around the first turn and down the backstretch, Cali Conquest moved to the outside for the final quarter mile. The leader had opened up at the top of the stretch, but Cali Conquest would not be denied. Closing with every stride, he got up in the last jump to win by a nose.

Loud Loud Music Scores by Eighteen Lengths at Santa Anita

Arcadia, CA (November 6, 2022) – In recent weeks, we in racing heard a lot of a two-turn race on the dirt, won in a dazzling performance not soon forgotten, by over eighteen length in a canter. Today at Santa Anita, the 5-year-old mare Loud Loud Music stepped onto the main track at Santa Anita in the 6th race and while she is not Flightline, she turned in no less a visual masterpiece with a similar, eighteen-plus length victory.

Loud Loud Music is a daughter of Tizbud, the stakes-winning full brother to champion Tiznow, who spent his stud career in the stallion barn at Harris Farms. He sired millionaire Soi Phet and G1-winner Tiz Flirtatious among his many black-type winners.

Loud Loud Music is a part of the larger populations of Thoroughbreds who fill the majority of cards of all the racetracks across the country. A blue collar worker plying her trade. Known to the local punters and horsemen, but by few others.

Her racing career by all accounts has been successful. Seventeen starts with five wins, a second and three thirds. She has moved up and down the ladder of allowance and claiming starts, earning $165,682. As you see in the video below, the chart call of never asked could not have been more apt. A stunning performance as eye-catching as any champion. She took the field wire-to-wire under apprentice Abdul Alsadoor, in what Frank Miramadi deemed likely the largest winning margin of the meeting.

Loud Loud Music was bred by Nick Alexander. She was produced by the Bernstein mare, Your Cheatin Heart. She made her start for owners Biggleague Racing LLC and trainer George Papaprodromou. She will be changing barns as she was claimed by owner Brian Godon and trainer Val Brinkerhoff.

Acclimate Finding His Stride In Retirement

He would stand stock still, like a soldier at attention, as owners came by to inspect and admire his form.

Trainer Phil D’Amato would say, “Acclimate is what you want to see when you go to the sales.”

The muscular bay, well conformed with solid legs and hooves to match is every owner’s dream. With over $750,000 in earnings, the 8-year-old stalwart is every trainer’s dream too.

“Acclimate is such a cool horse to be around. He just knew his job,” reflected his D’Amato.

There was no ticker tape parade or hero’s welcome as he journeyed to the winner’s circle on March 20, but Acclimate (Acclamation) was barely blowing and stood with eyes glowing and ears pricked to have his photo taken one last time. He had just gone gate-to-wire with nary a challenge to win the Grade 3 1 ½ mile San Luis Rey Stakes by a half-length over Dicey Mo Chara. While he may not have a retirement ceremony befitting a horse of his statue, Acclimate’s story is far from over.

Dr. Courtney Stammerjohan, the resident veterinarian at Harris Farms where Acclimate was foaled in 2014 remembered him.

Courtesy of Santa Anita ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 29, 2022)—Patiently handled by Umberto Rispoli, Mr. and Mrs. Larry D. Williams’ homebred Passarando swung out for racing room turning for home and collared heavily favored Giver Not a Taker in deep stretch to win Saturday’s $175,000 Golden State Juvenile going away by a length. Trained by Steve Specht, Passarando, a 2-year-old gelding by Tamarando, got seven panels in 1:24.18.

Into the bridle while in behind a group of three dueling leaders around the far turn, Passarando, who was ridden for the first time by Rispoli, angled three-deep at the top of the lane and proved best at 11-1.

A 2 ½ length open allowance winner going 5 ½ furlongs on synthetic Tapeta at Golden Gate Fields Sept. 9, Passarando was a considerable overlay off of his morning line of 4-1 and paid $24.40, $5.60 and $3.40.

Out of the Lucky Pulpit mare I’m Passing Ya Now, Passarando picked up $105,000 for the win, increasing his earnings to $160,830. In notching his first stakes win, Passarando improved his overall mark to 5-3-1-0.

Off at 2-5 under Jose Valdivia, Jr., Giver Not a Taker was second best on the day, finishing 4 ¼ lengths in front of Mystic Flyer while returning $2.20 and $2.10.

Ridden by Juan Hernandez, Mystic Flyer sat a close second to the head of the stretch and lacked the necessary rally. Off at 6-1 he paid $3.00 to show while finishing 4 ¾ lengths in front of Merit Song.

Fractions on the race were 22.49, 45.77 and 1:10.90.

Albany, CA (October 29, 2022) – Making her stakes debut, Harris Farms’ homebred Quickly Park It came home the decisive winner in the $75,900 Pike Place Dancer Stakes going one mile over the firm turf course at Golden Gate Fields.

Quickly Park It began her career with a fourth place finish at Del Mar and she earned her maiden special weight diploma in her second start at the seaside oval. Sent north for today’s added money event, she proved more than up to the task. Trailing the field for the first half-mile, jockey William Antongeorgi asked her to pick it up and she responded. Finding a rail run around the final turn she moved from last to second and took aim at the leader at the top of the stretch. Switched outside, she flew past the leader with little encouragement and drew away in hand to win by six lengths in an eye-catching performance.

Quickly Park it is a third generation Harris Farms homebred. She is by Prospect Park out of the winning Lucky J. H. mare, Quick Luck. She is trained by Sean McCarthy

The moveable targets were past the eighth pole before a passage opened up. When asked, she responded with a strong turn of of foot to fly past them and open up by a length and one-quarter at the wire.
