RES JUDICATA eighth stakes winner of year for SMARTY JONES

YouTubePhotosResDoing his best impression of his famous daddy SMARTY JONES, Pennsylvania-bred RES JUDICATA burst away from the field and charged home to win the City of Laurel S. at Laurel Park by more than four lengths on Saturday, November 9 - 10 years to the day of SMARTY JONES’ first win. The score was the first in a stakes this year for the chestnut 3-year-old, one of SMARTY JONES’ eight stakes winners this year.

Carrying the famous blue and white silks of Patricia Chapman’s Someday Farm, RES JUDICATA is a homebred for his owner, as was his sire and first two dams. RES JUDICATA is trained by John Servis, who choreographed the sensational classic campaign of SMARTY JONES, which began a decade ago at Philadelphia Park. SMARTY JONES burst on the scene as a juvenile with a widening seven and three-quarter-length maiden win, and followed a few weeks later with a 15-length tour-de-force in the Pennsylvania Nursery. Those two races launched an eight-race win streak (seven stakes) that would include the Kentucky Derby-G1 and Preakness Stakes-G1.

SYNAPSE shines as first stakes winner for FAIRBANKS

SYNAPSE, one of seven juvenile winners in FAIRBANKS’ second crop, came out with her first victory in the $150,000 My Trusty Cat S. at Delta Downs on Friday, Oct. 25. The dark bay filly bred and owned by Dr. Glen Warren and trained by Andrew Leggio Jr. pushed her career earnings to $100,200 in her third career start. She is the first stakes performer from six named foals for her dam Sarah Lane’s Oates (by Sunshine Forever), a 15-time stakes winner of $888,296.

The FAIRBANKS 2-year-olds of 2013 have been an enterprising bunch - half of his starters are winners, and two others, Interchange and Respectful Wishes, are stakes-placed. FAIRBANKS currently ranks third on the 2-year-old sires rankings in the Mid-Atlantic region by progeny earnings.

Since his first runners came to the races a year ago, FAIRBANKS has nearly 60 percent runners from foals, and average earnings per starter of nearly $24,000! One of the most promising stallion prospects to ever enter stud in the region, the graded stakes-winning son of Giant’s Causeway retired after a career on the track that only got better as he got older, winning at distances up to a mile and a quarter and placing in Grade 1 company on his way to earning $879,768.

Northview sires make Maryland Million Day special!

MMTrophyNorthview sired runners made an impression on this year’s 28th Maryland Million Day card at Laurel Park on Saturday Oct. 19.

The day offered nine stakes worth nearly $1 million in purses, and although less than half the runners were conceived at Northview Stallion Station, more than half were winners and stakes-placed runners!

GREAT NOTION was the only stallion to have more than one winner this year, as his juvenile son IT’S A BANG took the $100,000 Nursery and juvenile daughter JONESIN FOR JERRY captured the $100,000 Lassie in the first two races on the card! GREAT NOTION had six runners - five finished fourth or better.

NOT FOR LOVE’s son EIGHTTOFASTTOCATCH got his second win in the $150,000 Classic as the overwhelming favorite. He won the biggest race of the day in 2011 as well. NOT FOR LOVE padded his lead as Maryland Million's most successful sire, with 28 wins overall.
