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.

"Wow! What A Filly!" - Mossflower - 1998 Hempstead Handicap [04:01]
Her name is Mossflower, she is a 4-year-old daughter of the Triple Crown champion Affirmed, and she streaked across the horizon at Belmont Park yesterday like a shooting star. Mossflower stayed undefeated by winning her sixth straight race in the sort of performance that grows with time. She outran five of the finest fillies in the land by 12 lengths and more, closed with a furious rush to break the record for the Hempstead Handicap and came within two-fifths of a second of matching the track record for a mile and one-sixteenth. And she did it all in the first stakes race she ever ran. The true measure of her success might be judged by the caliber of the fillies she outran, in this order: Glitter Woman, who has finished in the money in 15 of her 16 starts; Colonial Minstrel, who had a five-race winning streak; Ajina, last year's 3-year-old champion filly; Dixie Flag, a speed horse who had won three of her last four, and Royal Indy, winner of the Gazelle last summer at Belmont. After half a mile, Mossflower was running dead last in this all-star field, and she was still fourth after three-quarters of a mile. Then they turned into the homestretch, and Robbie Davis called for closing speed. In a flash, Mossflower blew past Dixie Flag and Glitter Woman, shot from fourth place to first, widened her lead to two lengths in the stretch and widened it to major daylight as they neared the wire. She closed her breathtaking performance 12 lengths in front of Glitter Woman, who nosed ...

2012-08-01 Clairwood - race 8 [02:20]
Team G Racing Syndicate filly Lyford Cay offers a sneak preview of what's still to come when winning her maiden over 1600m at Clairwood. After racing widest of all around the bend she moves into contention early down the straight only to be joined and quickly passed by race favourite 'Above Emeralds'. But Lyford Cay isn't done for yet and she re-rallies impressively with her huge stride to pull clear in the closing stages. A meritorious win and a sparkling start to the new season for both Team G Racing and the TGR Syndicate whose stats now stand at 19 runs for 5 wins and 12 stakes-paying places (1st 5). Congratulations to all the syndicate members involved with Lyford Cay - the 2012/2013 racing season has begun!

2012 Breeders' Cup contender - Acclamation makes it seven straight with easy Eddie Read repeat [02:55]
Allowed to walk the dog on the lead through slow fractions over 1 1/8-miles on Del Mar's turf course, Acclamation made 1-to-2 look like a gift, strolling home by 2 3/4-lengths over four rivals to win for the seventh straight time in graded stakes company while repeating in the $300000 Eddie Read (Grade I). "(Whether) he sets fast fractions or slow fractions, he always comes home," said jockey Patrick Valenzuela of the 2011 Eclipse-award Champion Older Horse. "I've ridden some champions like Sunday Silence and Arazi, but for any horse to go out and set the pace like that and come home the final quarter like he does, that's a true race horse." The win pushed career earnings to over $1.95 million for the 6-year-old California-bred son of Unusual Heat, who could attempt to repeat in the $1 million Pacific Classic at the end of August. Options are open for either the Breeders' Cup Classic or Turf as the end of the year goal at Santa Anita. "Acclamation and Tom Knust (Valenzuela's agent) made this comeback happen," said Valenzuela, who returned from yet another retirement earlier this year. "My weight's good and I just want to get more winners." A champion in Argentina, Interaction rallied for second at 11-to-1 in his fourth US start and Casino Host rounded out the trifecta at 6-to-1 making his first start in the barn of Ron Ellis.
