Kauai Katie - 2012 Adirondack (G2) [01:39]
Kauai Katie gave Stonestreet Stables their second straight Grade 2 Adirondack victory Sunday at Saratoga Race Course with a front-running score on Sunday in the $200000 race for 2-year-old fillies at Saratoga Race Course. The daughter of Malibu Moon -- a sharp 12-length debut winner on July 20, opening day at the Spa -- was third out of the gate but grabbed the lead by the time the field had left the chute in the 6 ½-furlong race. In front by 1 ½ lengths following an opening quarter-mile in 21.77 seconds, Kauai Katie dismissed a pair of bids through a half-mile in 44.93, and stretched her lead while being driven home by jockey Rosie Napravnik to register a 2 ¾-length victory over Salamera. The final time was 1:16.81, with undefeated Kauai Katie paying $2.80 for a $2 win wager as the 2-5 favorite.

RTD 2nd in 9th @ The Spa 7 30 12 [01:47]
RTD ran like he was shot out of a cannon to hold on for 2nd in the 9th race today at The Spa! He broke sharp as he always does, took the overland route about 4 wide around the track and opened up a 3 length lead at the top of the stretch. Unfortunately the 6 horse - taking advantage of the front end speed (21,44,56) - closed to get the win.

Zo Impressive - 2012 Mother Goose (G1) [02:05]
Zo Impressive took advantage of a tiring pacesetter in Contested and held off a late surge from Disposablepleasure to win Saturday's 56th running of the Grade 1, $300000 Mother Goose at Belmont Park. After breaking sharply from post position 5 under Rajiv Maragh, Zo Impressive was taken back to settle on the outside in third as 1-2 favorite Contested opened up 1 ½ lengths on longshot Wildcat's Smile through a quarter mile in 23.08 and a half in 46.47. Asked for run leaving the five-sixteenths pole, the front-running Acorn winner came up empty. Zo Impressive, meanwhile, was set down to duel with late-running Disposablepleasure, whom she bested by three-quarters of a length. The final time for 1 1/16-miles was 1:44.28 over a track rated good. Kentucky Oaks winner Believe You Can, who tracked the leaders from the inside throughout, finished third, followed by Wildcat's Smile and Contested. A jockey's objection by Ramon Dominguez, the rider of Disposablepleasure, against the winner for alleged interference in the stretch run was disallowed by the stewards.

RTD WINS 3rd on 6.3.12.avi [09:24]
Ready To Defer WON the 3rd race on Sunday, June 3rd at Beautiful Belmont Park. He broke sharp from the 4 hole with Ramon Dominguez and never looked back! Ramon never moved his hands through fractions of 22, 45, 56! As the race progressed the margin steadily widened. At the top of the stretch he opened up an 8 length lead then in the words of the chart caller: "....Increased the lead from upper to mid-stretch, under a mild hand ride, got geared down at the 16th pole, allowed to complete the contest handily"... I think that about sums it up! He finished in 109 and 2! Sundays so far have been very good luck for PGR!! Congratulations to all! This is one awesome horse! Nice way to celebrate another weekend

Wholelottashakin ROCKS the 9th race on May 27th @ Belmont [08:03]
Wholelottashakin WON the 9th race on Sunday, May 27th at Beautiful Belmont Park. She broke sharp from the 5 hole with Javier, he put her in good position until about the 5/8ths pole where she almost ran up the leader's you know what... Javier had to jerk her head to get her to the outside - any other horse would have packed it in right there but she continued in stride. Javier saved ground behind the leaders, the favorite went wide and he went for the hole on the rail and the rest my friends, as they say, is history. She flew down the stretch and held off a repeated challenge from the fancy 4yo and prevailed under strong urging. She loves a little give in the ground and I think she likes the mile distance. Congratulations to all ~ certainly a nice way to celebrate the Holiday weekend!
