Our main racing stables (Astar Lindquist & Astar Thoroughbreds) had a great week thanks to trainer Gary Scherer and some great rides by Geovanni Franco, Denny Velazquez and Nik Goodwin. It started on July 3rd when BJ’s Angel moved her earnings over the $120,000 mark by hitting the board in the Black Type Princess Elaine Stakes. Then Thursday night 3 year old Minnie Soda Nice broke his maiden easily by 5 lengths when we dropped him down to a claiming level to get a win and develop some confidence. Then last Friday night 3 year old PJ’s Angel pulled away running on the TURF for the first time to easily win a Maiden Special Weight.
Stormy Business sired all three of these horses. His horses win short, long, when young and old, and importantly for Minnesota bred owners, on the TURF! Folks need a sire with this versatility to excel in Minnesota Bred racing, and the proof is in the pudding.
You may want to take a good look at the two Stormy Business yearlings in the 2015 MTA Sale. They are HIPS 76 and 77, and HIP 76 is a FULL BROTHER to BJ's Angel!
