First Two Stakes-Horses for Majestic Harbor

Both fillies raced off the pace down the backstretch. Diamond Solitaire closed up the rail to earn the second spot. Pearl Tiara took the overland route as she closed to be third.

Harris Farms’ Filly Wins Santa Anita MSW

Arcadia, CA (October 24, 2020) – Nu Pi Lambda tracked the pace early and came running late to earn her maiden special weight diploma in the 4th race at Santa Anita going five and one-half furlongs on the turf.

The Harris Farms’ owned daughter of City Zip was quick early, but let a trio of others go on to dispute the early lead. She came four wide into the stretch, poked her head in front with a furlong to run and was drawing away to win by one length as they hit the wire.

Bred in Kentucky by Hinkle Farm, she is out of the winning Speightstown mare, Giulio’s Jewel. She is trained by Carla Gaines.

Manuelito Fourth Winner for California Leading Freshman Sire Majestic Harbor

Shelbyville, IN (October 19, 2020) – Manuelito, who missed breaking his maiden in his debut by a half-length, went one better today and became the fourth winner for California’s Leading Freshman Sire Majestic Harbor.

First time out, Manuelito ran over the main track surface rated fast at Indiana Grande. Today, that same surface was rated sloppy (sealed) as ten juveniles lined up for the 7th race, a maiden special weight going five and one-half furlongs. Breaking from the outside post, he tracked the leaders from fourth down the backstretch. The quartet were all in the hunt coming off the turn and Manuelito was floated widest of all. He closed willingly, took over inside the final furlong and kept going to win by one length.

Golden Gate Feature Goes to Heck Yeah

Albany, CA (October 17, 2020) – Heck Yeah, the 5-year-old son of Acclamation, was much the best in the feature race at Golden Gate, a one mile allowance over the all weather course.

Heck Yeah was ready to race from the break. He engaged in a pace duel around the first turn and down the backstretch. The two opened up a clear lead over the rest of the field. He put away his pace partner on the final turn and was five lengths clear by midstretch. Kept to his business, he cruised in to a three and one-half length victory.

Heck Yeah has five victories in his career and he has earned $335,769 for the partnership of Robert Baedeker, Constance Ann Pageler and Michael Sigband. The multiple stakes winner was bred in California by Michael Pageler and he is out of the winning Maria’s Mon mare, Lutess.

Smiling Tiger 2YO Debuts a Winner

Albany, CA (October 17, 2020) – There is always added excitement when a 2-year-old wins first time out. Smiling Tiger son Rocktillyoudrop has given his connections that thrill with his victory in the 7th race at Golden Gate.

Eight juveniles lined up for the five and one-half furlong contest over the all weather. Rocktillyoudrop was third out of the gate, but the lead was his quickly thereafter. He faced and overcame a challenge around the turn and opened up by three with just over a furlong to run. He was expectedly tired, but he did not fold late. He held on with racehorse grit to win by a half-length.

Rocktillyoudrop is trained by William Delia, who owns and bred the colt in partnership with Patty Wall. He was produced by the winning Northern Devil mare, Red Hot Rocket.

Third Winner for Majestic Harbor

Shelbyville, IN (October 12, 2020) – Pearl Tiara became the third winner for California’s Leading Freshman Sire Majestic Harbor with her runaway victory in the 8th race at Indiana Grand, a maiden special weight going five and one-half furlongs over the fast main track.

A full field of twelve juvenile fillies lined up and there was no shortage of lead seekers after the gate opened. Pearl Tiara was among the group and was urged to move between horses down the backstretch to take the lead. She cleared the field midway around the turn and never looked back. She galloped away and was a little green drifting out, but it mattered not as there was an eight length gap back to the second place finisher at the wire.

On Mars Lands in Santa Anita Winner’s Circle

Arcadia, CA (October 11, 2020) – Vronsky filly On Mars continues to add to her consistent racing resume. She opened the day’s card at Santa Anita winning for the second time in her last three starts in the $57,000 allowance over the firm turf course.

Relishing the nine furlongs, the early part of her trip did not go smoothly. She lost a fair amount of ground while five-wide around the first turn. With little pace in front of her, jockey Mike Smith guided her to the front down the backstretch. The race was over at that point. She opened up her lead around the final turn and was never challenged to the wire. She won more easily than the official three and one-half length margin would indicate.

On Mars races for her breeder, Ed Bernstein, in partnership with Old Bones Racing Stable, LLC. Trained by Phil D’Amato, she was produced by the winning Cyclotron mare, Elana Mar. She has won or placed in seven of her eight career starts and she has earned $115,500.

Uptown Rythem Sires First Winner

ALBANY, Calif. (Oct. 4, 2020) – California stallion Uptown Rythem was represented by his first winner on Sunday when Le Majestic won the fourth race at Golden Gate, a maiden special weight for 2-year-olds going five and one-half furlongs over the all weather.

Le Majestic broke sharply in his racing debut and engaged in a pace battle with an outside foe. That rival gave way midway around the turn and he kept on going, keeping the closers at bay and winning by two lengths. Final time was 1:04.30.

Bred in California by C-Punch Ranch, the chestnut colt was produced by the stakes winning Volksraad mare Pams Pompallier. He races for Irvin Racing Stable and is trained by Greg James.

Uptown Rythem, a winning son of Speightstown, stands privately at Harris Farms.
