JUMP START's Argentine sensation!

livingstoneLIVINGSTONE, an Argentina-bred 3-year-old son of JUMP START, has become one of the best milers in South America after taking the Gr. 1 Gran Premio Estrellas Mile, the Argentine version of the Breeders’ Cup, while facing older runners on Saturday, June 28 at Hipodromo Argentino de Palermo. The striking blaze-faced dark bay defeated a field of 10 while stopping the clock in a dazzling 1:33.41 on the main track. Rated patiently off swift fractions of :21.86, :44.02 and 1:07.89, he swept past the pacesetter in midstretch, drew off quickly and held the lead safe to win by a length. 

LIVINGSTONE's Group 1 win comes hot on the heels of his obliteration of the field in the Gr. 2 25 De Mayo De 1810 in May, which he won by 21 lengths! LIVINGSTONE now has five wins from 13 starts. JUMP START is the sire of 11 graded stakes winners, and is the leading active sire in the Mid-Atlantic region this year by number of stakes winners, with seven.

ORIENTATE'S son DECLASSIFY wins Grade 1 battle!

DeclassifyORIENTATE'S 4-year-old son DECLASSIFY did not back down and did not give up as the lightly-raced Bob Baffert-trained colt battled down the stretch to win the $300,000 Gr. 1 Triple Bend Stakes at Santa Anita on Saturday, June 28. After leading early and being passed on the far turn, the Kaleem Shah Inc. colorbearer caught Cyclometer in the final strides to win by a nose in his stakes debut.

“I thought I was beat at the top of the stretch,” said rider Martin Garcia. “My horse was trying everything, every step of the way. He never gave up. Cyclometer moved into me a little bit in the stretch and my horse was intimidated. He responded again though, he’s such a good horse.”

Final time for the seven furlongs was a snappy 1:22.03.

JUMP START and GREAT NOTION fillies charge to stakes victories at Pimlico!

Miss BehaviourThe sun appeared and brightened the day, and so too did the girls by Northview sires, as MISS BEHAVIOUR and OUR EPIPHANY led the way in their respective stakes to score on Black-Eyed Susan Day!

Stepping up first was MISS BEHAVIOUR. The filly from the first Pennsylvania-sired crop by JUMP START was seeking her first win of the year after a spectacular juvenile campaign as graded stakes winner and Pennsylvania-bred champion.

Cal MacWilliam and Neil Teitelbaum’s homebred filly ran a solid third in the Stormy Blues S. in her sophomore debut in April. On one of the biggest stages of the year she ran fantastic in the $100,000 Miss Preakness S. Taking command from the start, the pretty bay blistered through fractions of :22.74 and :46.03 and still had plenty left to hold off eight other fillies. She cruised home by nearly two lengths in 1:10.85 for six furlongs over a drying out track rated good after torrential rains in the morning. Trained by Phil Schoenthal, MISS BEHAVIOUR now has a record of four wins from seven starts, plus a second and a third, for earnings of $312,000.
