ea09254cbdf5b31812ee7dc63f7b40f74f723699Current Mid-Atlantic leading freshman and 2-year-old sire El Padrino, 8, was euthanized on Wednesday, Nov. 22 following a series of bouts with colic and subsequent surgeries at New Bolton Center. One of the region’s most popular stallions, the syndicated son of Pulpit stood at Northview PA in Peach Bottom, Pa., since entering stud in 2014.

El Padrino retired as a graded winner with six on the board finishes in eight starts, and earnings of $326,770. The flashy chestnut out of the Giant’s Causeway mare Enchanted Rock was a $210,000 Keeneland September sales yearling and trained by Todd Pletcher for Let’s Go Stable. A maiden winner at 2 by more than a dozen lengths, he finished the year with a third in the Grade 2 Remsen. At 3 he captured the Risen Star Stakes (G2) in near record time of 1:42.96 for 1 1⁄16 miles.

From a deep family that includes champion Queena, Grade 1-winning second and third dams Chic Shirine and Too Chic, and Grade 1-winning millionaire half-brother, Verrazano, El Padrino was a hit when he entered stud, covering 89 mares his first season and 109 the second. With 53 2-year-olds in his first crop, he has eight winners from 13 runners, led by Enchanted Star and Whereshetoldmetogo, both stakes on the Owners’ Day card at Delaware Park in September. His most recent winner was first-time starter Eagle Terrace at Laurel Park on Nov. 17.

Millionaire Madefromlucky Retired To Northview http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/58-news/peace-and-justice/239-millionaire-madefromlucky-retired-to-northview http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/58-news/peace-and-justice/239-millionaire-madefromlucky-retired-to-northview

MadefromluckyMadefromlucky, a multiple graded stakes winner of $1,351,500 by emerging sire Lookin At Lucky (champion colt at 2 and 3) out of a full sister to three-time leading sire Tapit, has been retired to Northview Stallion Station in Chesapeake City, Md., for the 2018 season. Northview is syndicating the stallion, with details to be announced.

“Madefromlucky has a combination of racing ability and pedigree that we just could not pass up,” said Northview president Richard Golden.

The 5-year-old classically-bred chestnut, a winner of six of his 24 career starts, heads into stud having won his final two starts – the 1 1/2-mile Greenwood Cup Stakes-G3 at Parx in September by more than a dozen lengths, and the Temperence Hill Invitational at 1 5⁄8 miles at Belmont on Oct. 1. He was a graded stakes winner twice at 3, taking the West Virginia Derby-G2 and Peter Pan Stakes-G2, both at 1 1⁄8 miles, the latter which earned him a spot in the Belmont Stakes field.

Madefromlucky was a winner at 2 by nearly 5 lengths at Gulfstream Park, and after taking his 3-year-old debut, also at Gulfstream, he competed exclusively in stakes competition. In addition to his wins, he counted eight stakes-placings, three graded, including a second to American Pharoah in the Grade 2 Rebel at Oaklawn Park in his stakes debut.

From the first crop of classic winner Lookin At Lucky, Madefromlucky is out of Home From Oz (by Pulpit) and is a half-brother to A Shin Gold, a stakes-placed earner of $805,785 in Japan. His second dam, stakes winner Tap Your Heels, is a half-sister to champion sprinter and leading sire Rubiano. The family also includes Belmont Stakes winner, champion and Grade 1 sire Summer Bird and successful sire Glitterman.

Madefromlucky has arrived at Northview and is available for inspection. “We’re very excited to have Madefromlucky at the farm. He has the looks to back up his high-profile pedigree and race record,” said David Wade, general manager of Northview. “I’d encourage breeders to make an appointment to come to the farm and see for themselves.”

Graded Stakes Winner GOLDEN LAD to Stand in 2016 http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/56-news/golden-lad/227-test http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/56-news/golden-lad/227-test

Golden Lad Inside actionGolden Lad, a multiple graded stakes-winning son of leading sire Medaglia d’Oro from the female line of champion Eliza, has been retired to Northview Stallion Station in Chesapeake City, Md., for the 2016 season. The 5-year-old dark bay, currently being syndicated into 40 shares, will stand for $5,000 live foal, payable when the foal stands and nurses.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring a horse of Golden Lad’s caliber to Maryland,” said Northview’s general manager David Wade. “He has the sire power, a wonderful family, an impressive race record, and his conformation is outstanding. Rarely does a stallion prospect like this get introduced into a regional market. We can’t wait for our breeders to see him.”

Bred and campaigned by E. Paul Robsham Stables and trained by Todd Pletcher, Golden Lad won eight of 15 starts, earned $645,320 and retires off back-to-back stakes wins in 2015. He concluded his career in the Prairie Meadows Cornhusker Handicap-G3, winning as the favorite over a field that included Tapiture, Page McKenney and Carve.

In his previous start, Golden Lad captured Penn National’s Mountainview Handicap by five lengths.
“This horse has a lot of heart and determination,” said Pletcher. “Given his level of talent and pedigree, I was certain he would end up at stud in Kentucky. This is a major score for Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic region.”
Racing exclusively in stakes company this year, he scored his first win of the year in Oaklawn Park’s Essex Handicap. All three of his victories resulted in triple digit Beyer Speed Figures.

Golden Lad won four in a row from his 3 to 4-year-old seasons, capping the streak with a dominating six and three-quarter-length victory in the Grade 3 Razorback Handicap at Oaklawn in his stakes debut. One race earlier he set a track record at Gulfstream Park for a mile and a sixteenth.

Out of the stakes-winning Seeking the Gold mare Broadway Gold, Golden Lad is a half-brother to $521,500-earner Broadway’s Alibi, winner of four of six starts including the Grade 2 Forward Gal and Grade 3 Comely Stakes and second in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks. Another half-sister, R Gypsy Gold, won multiple stakes and was Grade 1-placed in the Mother Goose Stakes. Both mares sold at the E. Paul Robsham Stables’ breeding stock dispersal in 2013 - Broadway’s Alibi for $2.15 million and R Gypsy Gold for $625,000.

OneGoAllGoFacing a Grade 1-winning favorite and making just his second start of the year, ONE GO ALL GO grabbed the lead at the start, set every fraction and then kept going, winning the $400,000 Commonwealth Derby-G2 at Laurel Park on Sept. 19, formerly run as the Virginia Derby, by a length. The 3-year-old son of FAIRBANKS trained by Pavel Matejka recorded his first stakes victory in the one and an eighth-mile turf feature and took home the $235,200 winner’s share of the purse for Preston Stables and Prestonwood Racing.

ONE GO ALL GO was stakes-placed last year at 2 when third in the Arlington-Washington Futurity-G3 in just his second start. The colt, bred in Virginia by Albert P. Coppola out of the Marquetry mare See Ashleigh Run, won his only other start of 2015, an allowance at Indiana Grand Race Course in August in his turf debut, but was disqualified and placed second for interference.

FAIRBANKS is the sire of four stakes horses in a four-week span from mid-August to mid-September. His stakes-winning 5-year-old daughter Vielsalm just missed in a thrilling finish in the All Brandy S. at Laurel on Aug. 22 and his 2-year-olds Gala’s Bank and Jeezum Jim hit the board in Delaware Park’s Small Wonder S. and First State Dash S., respectively, on Sept. 12.

Currently ranked sixth in the Mid-Atlantic on the leading sires list, with the fewest number of starters of the top six, FAIRBANKS has 11 stakes performers in his first four crops, five in 2015.

Idolo-Porteño-151With back-to-back Group 1 wins in Argentina this fall, IDOLO PORTENO has become the talk of South America, and leaps up as a major contender for Argentinean Horse of the Year. The 4-year-old distance-lover is the second Group 1 winner for JUMP START in Argentina in the past six months, joining top miler LIVINGSTONE among the country’s elite.

IDOLO PORTENO won the famed Gran Premio Carlos Pellegrini-G1 on Dec. 13 at Hipodromo San Isidro by an impressive four lengths over last year’s winner and 2013 Argentine Horse of the Year Soy Carambolo, getting the mile and a half over the turf in a snappy 2:28.11.

NASAThe Pennsylvania Nursery showcased the extraordinary talents of SMARTY JONES in 2003, and 11 years later his son NASA adds his own exclamation point, leading throughout to take the most recent edition of the $100,000 stakes by two and a quarter lengths at Parx Racing on Dec. 6. 

The Smarty Jones team of Pat Chapman’s Someday Farm and trainer John Servis are also responsible for NASA, the 25th career stakes winner for SMARTY JONES. The bay colt out of Shootforthestars (by Seattle Slew) has now won or placed in all four of his juvenile starts for earnings of $99,050. NASA is a full brother to four other winners, including Gr. 1-winning sprinter CENTRALINTELIGENCE.

SMARTY JONES is the sire of 13 stakes horses in 2014, with two others in action on Dec. 6. His stakes-winning son FRANCOIS missed adding the $110,000 Iron Horse S. on Claiming Crown Day at Gulfstream Park by a neck when finishing second, and increased his earnings to $283,428. Veteran CONCEALED IDENTITY, a stakes performer from ages 2 to 6, was third in the Jennings H. at Laurel Park, his 11th on-the-board finish in stakes company and third time in the Jennings, while earning $435,915.

With international earnings in excess of $3.3 million in 2014, SMARTY JONES is the second-leading active sire in the Mid-Atlantic region. And his runners get better with age: among his recent stakes-performers are Gr. 1-winning SMART D N A, two-time graded winner CARY STREET and four-time stakes winner ISN’T HE CLEVER, all from the crop of 2009, which has yielded nine stakes winners to date.

CaryStreetDistance-loving CARY STREET took his show on the road to California, and the Kentucky-based son of SMARTY JONES kicked off the stakes action on Breeders' Cup weekend at Santa Anita with a stunning performance in the $200,000 Las Vegas Marathon S.-G2.

The 5-year-old gelding, owned by Brendan Walsh and Marc Detampel and trained by Walsh, was extremely patient in the one and three-quarter-mile Marathon under Miguel Mena, at one point nearly 20 lengths behind a solid pace. But soon the charge was on! Gobbling up ground he swung wide in the stretch and strolled home easily to win by more than nine lengths.

"This horse runs all day, so I wasn’t worried about it when they went out there so quick. . . I started looking for the leader at the five-eighths pole and he started to kick on for me," said Mena. "He finished great, he was rolling. . .”

A splendorous Maryland Million! http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/41-news/not-for-love/211-a-splendorous-maryland-million http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/41-news/not-for-love/211-a-splendorous-maryland-million

Eighttofasttocatch-2014-Maryland-Million-ClassicNorthview sired runners once again dominated the Maryland Million Day card, as two-thirds of the runners hitting the board were conceived at Northview Stallion Station. And leading the way was Maryland Million's all-time leading sire Not For Love.

For the third time in the past five years, Not For Love had a record-tying four winners on the day, all in six-figure races. The $150,000 Classic was won for a record third time by Not For Love's son Eighttofasttocatch, who dominated the mile and an eighth feature to win by more than four lengths. The victory pushed Eighttofasttocatch's earnings to just shy of $1 million for owner Sylvia E. Heft and trainer Tim Keefe. The chestnut gelding bred by Dark Hollow Farm and Herringswell Stable is now being aimed for the Jennings Handicap, a race he won the past three years. Not For Love is the sire of the winners of a record six Classics: in addition to Eighttofasttocatch winning in 2011 and 2013, Not Abroad won in 2012, Cuba in 2008 and Presidentialaffair in 2004.

Other winning Not For Love offspring in 2014 were Nursery hero Golden Years, bred in West Virginia by O'Sullivan Farms and now undefeated in both his starts for owner Hillwood Stable; TomRus LLC's D C Dancer, bred in Maryland by Katharine M. Voss and Robert T. Manfuso and the fifth Not For Love son to capture the Sprint; and Classy Coco, bred in Pennsylvania by Jonathan Thorne and Mr. and Mrs. Rick Abbott and a previous Lassie winner who this year scored in the Distaff, which Not For Love fillies have now won five times.

MissBullisticFour starters, two stakes horses! The first crop of BULLSBAY is off to a powerful start!

His first stakes winner is MISS BULLISTIC, who captured Laurel Park's time-honored $100,000 Selima S on Saturday, Sept. 27 with a powerful performance. Kathleen Willier's 2-year-old filly, bred in Maryland by Graham Motion, has shown an affinity for the turf. Trainer Hamilton Smith sent her out first time on the grass on Sept. 6 to break her maiden by more than two lengths. Stepping up to face a dozen rivals in the five and a half-furlong Selima S., she powered home in the stretch to win by a length and a half. “The main thing that happened to her is that we moved to grass," said Smith. "She has more speed on grass. She’s bred for grass. Her mother (Miss Lombardi) won the Maryland Million on grass. I hope she’s the same. She’s done a fine job sprinting so far but I want to test her long. Her daddy was a long runner. I have no definite plans but something in the Maryland Million (Oct. 18 at Laurel). I suspect a bright future. She can’t do anything but go up from here.” Sold as a yearling at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic fall sale for $30,000, MISS BULLISTIC has now earned $90,120 in four starts.

BULLSBAY is also the sire of Bullheaded Boy, a winner and twice stakes-placed in three starts! Gary Barber's colt trained by Todd Pletcher won his debut at Saratoga in July, finished third in the Funny Cide S. at the upstate New York track in August, and was second in the Bertram F. Bongard S. at Belmont Park on Sept. 21. The dark bay, a $115,000 Ocala 2-year-old sales horse bred in New York by Zeke Kobak and Danny Bramer, has earned $93,800.

The sire of 23 foals in his first crop, BULLSBAY remains solidly atop the leading freshman sires list in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Grade 1-winning son of Tiznow is from a family of precocious runners, and his first runners are proving just as precocious!

JUMP START runners making headlines! http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/45-news/jump-start/209-jump-start-runners-making-headlines http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/45-news/jump-start/209-jump-start-runners-making-headlines

MissBehTwo of JUMP START’s richest runners competed on “Race for the Ribbon” evening, Sept. 20, at Charles Town. And both dominated their competition with sensational efforts!

The beautiful 3-year-old filly MISS BEHAVIOUR led at every call in the richest race of the night, the $500,000 Gr. 3 Charles Town Oaks, and won laughing over nine rivals by nine and three-quarters lengths going seven furlongs. It was the second graded stakes win, and fourth stakes win overall, for the filly bred in Pennsylvania by her owners Cal MacWilliam and Neil Teitelbaum. And the lucrative win pushed her earnings to $548,000 for the year, and $790,000 for her career. Trained by Phil Schoenthal, MISS BEHAVIOUR has a record of five wins, four seconds and a third from 11 lifetime starts.

About an hour earlier, JUMP START’s millionaire son PANTS ON FIRE drew off to take the $100,000 Wild and Wonderful S. by more than two lengths, and earned a sensational 106 Beyer Speed Figure! Bred by owner George and Lori Hall’s K & G Stables, 6-year-old PANTS ON FIRE has won at least one stakes each of the past four years and now has earnings of $1,327,635. The Kelly Breen trainee was a multiple graded winner at 3, in the Gr. 2 Louisiana Derby and Gr. 3 Pegasus Stakes; and again at 5 - the Gr. 2 Monmouth Cup S. and Gr. 3 Ack Ack H. In four starts this year, all stakes, he has never been worse than third.

Earlier on Saturday, JUMP START’s ultra-consistent 5-year-old daughter WILLET hit the board for the 17th time in 19 career starts when she finished third in the $300,000 Gr. 2 Gallant Bloom H. at Belmont at six and a half furlongs, and his 3-year-old son BUMP START finished third in the rapidly-run $300,000 Gr. 3 Gallant Bob S. at Parx Racing going six furlongs.


MISS BEHAVIOUR is JUMP START’s richest runner this year and fourth richest overall. PANTS ON FIRE is one of three millionaires for his sire, behind PRAYER FOR RELIEF ($1,907,938) and RAIL TRIP ($1,516,520). JUMP START is the sire of 42 stakes winners, 11 (26 percent) graded winners. His eight stakes winners this year include Gr. 1 winning miler LIVINGSTONE, and among his stakes competitors are Gr. 1 performers PRAYER FOR RELIEF (3rd Woodward S.-G1) and WILLET (3rd Ballerina S.-G1).
For graded action, look no further than JUMP START!

FAIRBANKS' stakes runners down to the wire! http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/44-news/fairbanks/208-fairbanks-stakes-runners-down-to-the-wire http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/44-news/fairbanks/208-fairbanks-stakes-runners-down-to-the-wire

VielsalmTwo stakes, two blanket finishes, two FAIRBANKS stakes performers on Saturday, Sept. 6.

VIELSALM, making her stakes debut, got upon in the final strides to win the $100,000 All Brandy S. for Maryland-bred fillies and mares by a neck at Laurel Park. The 4-year-old filly owned by Brooke Bowman and trained by Dylan Smith has been on the board in four of her six starts this year. Out of the Opening Verse mare Merriweather, VIELSALM upped her career earnings to $173,516. Her full brother Open the Bank is also a six-figure earner and was second in the $100,000 James W. Murphy S. earlier this year at Pimlico.

A few hours following VIELSALM's exciting score, the 2-year-old colt ONE GO ALL GO made his second career start in the Gr. 3 $125,000 Arlington-Washington Futurity at Arlington Park. The time-honored juvenile test saw a dogfight to the wire, with the top three finishers just heads apart, as FAIRBANKS' son just missed to finish third. Owned by Feel The Thunder Stable and trained by Michael Stidham, the colt was bred in Virginia by Albert P. Coppola.

FAIRBANKS is the sire of six stakes horses this year and is the region's leading third-crop sire with more than $1.4 million in progeny earnings. Seventy-five percent of his stakes horses showed their stakes potential at 2, including stakes-winning SYNAPSE.

Making his stakes debut in the marathon mile and a half Gr. 3 Greenwood Cup S., CARY STREET got a ground-saving trip in the 10-horse field and dueled to the line to win by a length.

SMARTY JONES is the sire of 10 stakes horses in 2014, among them Gr. 1 Panama winner SMART D N A and veteran stakes performer ISN’T HE CLEVER, who has been on the board in all six of his starts this year while pushing his lifetime earnings to $644,085. Later in the day on Sept. 1, ISN’T HE CLEVER hit the board in the Ruidoso Downs Thoroughbred Championship H., his fourth stakes win or placing in his last five starts!

Fulfilling expectations - SMARTY JONES, Pennsylvania’s favorite son, siring winners on the Pennsylvania’s biggest racing days!

Graded Stakes Winner by TAPIT to Northview Maryland for 2015 http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/55-news/bandbox/206-graded-stakes-winner-by-tapit-to-northview-maryland-for-2015 http://www.northviewstallions.com/index.php/55-news/bandbox/206-graded-stakes-winner-by-tapit-to-northview-maryland-for-2015

bandbox2BANDBOX, a four-length winner of the 2014 General George H.-G3 and a son of Leading sire TAPIT, will stand his first season at stud in 2015 at Northview Stallion Station, in Chesapeake City, Maryland, according to an announcement from the farm. His stud fee will be $2,500 live foal and he is now available for inspection at the farm.

“We’re extremely excited to stand BANDBOX here in Maryland and, as far as we know he is the first Graded Stakes Winner by TAPIT to stand outside of Kentucky,” said Richard Golden, President/CEO of Northview Stallions.

In the $250,000 General George H.-G3, BANDBOX got away well and was sitting in sixth down the backstretch, about four lengths off the lead. He began his rally around the final turn but found himself behind a wall of horses as they neared the top of the stretch. BANDBOX swung six-wide into the stretch and then accelerated away from the field to win impressively registering a 102 Beyer Speed Figure.

Raced by Ellen Charles’ Hillwood Stable and trained by Rodney Jenkins, BANDBOX won his first three starts at two, including a 9 1/2-length runaway win in the $100,000 Charles Town Juvenile S. He also rallied, after stumbling at the start, to take Belmont’s Sleepy Hollow S. as the heavy favorite, and in his debut he put in a rally to win on the turf. In the fourth and final start of his juvenile year, BANDBOX finished on the board in the Remsen S.-G2 behind To Honor and Serve and Mucho Macho Man after a troubled trip throughout.

Graded stakes, winning streaks. . . 3-year-olds and older runners. . . distances short, long and in between. . . JUMP START runners have been having great fun during this summer season!

The JUMP STARTs were jumping the last week of July into the early days of August. His millionaire son PANTS ON FIRE returned to the races for the first time since a December trip to Japan, and hit the board in the Gr. 2 Monmouth Cup S. at Monmouth Park on July 27. It was the dark bay 6-year-old’s 11th time on the board in a stakes race, his eighth in graded company. George and Lori Hall’s handsome homebred now has earned $1,217,635.

It was a Grade 1 effort for JUMP START’s 3-year-old daughter MISS BEHAVIOUR, who finished second in Saratoga’s Gr. 1 Test S. on Aug. 2. Seven times in nine starts Cal MacWilliam and Neil Teitelbaum’s pretty bay filly has earned black-type. And she has also earned $442,000.

Sprinting is the name of the game for UNCLE TODD, a 5-year-old JUMP START son who earlier this year captured the four and a half-furlong Webb Snyder Charles Town Dash S. and on Aug. 2 finished third at the same distance in the West Virginia Legislature Chairman’s Cup S. at Mountaineer for owner Robert L. Cole Jr.

bullheadThere was no bullying this BULLSBAY! Making his first start at historic Saratoga 

on Thursday, July 31, 2-year-old BULLHEADED BOY survived being banged around at the start, a quick pace, going wide around the far turn and a stretch battle to win by a half length going five furlongs! He is the first winner from the first crop for BULLSBAY.

Owned by Gary Barber and trained by Todd Pletcher, BULLHEADED BOY, who last sold for $115,000 at the Ocala Breeders Sales Company 2-year-olds in training sale, completed the distance in :58.67 over a sloppy (sealed) track while defeating seven others as the 3-to-5 favorite. The colt, bred in New York by Zeke Kobak and Danny Bramer, is eligible for many lucrative programs – in addition to racing in New York, he is from a Maryland-sired crop of BULLSBAY and can also target the Maryland Million.

BULLSBAY stood his first three seasons at Northview Stallion Station in Maryland before moving to Northview PA for the 2014 season. One of the best of Tiznow’s runners at stud, BULLSBAY also proved his love for Saratoga with a win in the Gr. 1 Whitney Handicap in 2009.

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.

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.
