A Northview-sired stakes trifecta at Laurel Park

Jennings2012Back to his dominating ways, NOT FOR LOVE's son EIGHTTOFASTTOCATCH eagerly took command in the one-mile $100,000 Jennings Handicap at Laurel Park on Saturday, Dec. 1 and was never threatened, sailing home by 5 1/2 lengths to top a Northview-sired trifecta, as post time favorite Hello Lover (NOT FOR LOVE) rallied from next-to-last to take second with Charge (JUMP START) finishing third.

In recording his second consecutive Jennings score, the Tim Keefe trained EIGHTTOFASTTOCATCH boosted his career earnings to $535,430. The 6-year-old gelding, who had not won in four starts since taking Laurel's Harrison E. Johnson Memorial Stakes in March, now has six stakes wins, including the 2011 Maryland Million Classic. "It was nice to see him bounce back to form," said winning rider Sheldon Russell.

Arnold Heft, 94, who once co-owned the Baltimore Bullets and Washington Capitals with the late Abe Pollin, owns EIGHTTOFASTTOCATCH with Sylvia, his wife of 71 years. They named him after the Capitals' star player, Alex Ovechkin, who wears the no. 8 jersey and is often too fast to catch on the ice.

Four is magic number for JUMP START's San Pablo

SanPabloSwThe overwhelming choice in the four-horse field sent out for the $100,000 Swatara S. at Penn National, SAN PABLO cruised home by 4 1/2 lengths to record his fourth stakes win of the year. The 4-year-old son of JUMP START has earned $445,400 from in 14 starts in his career for Burning Sands Stables. Trained by Todd Pletcher, SAN PABLO set the early pace in the Swatara, was headed by Norman Asbjornson after three-quarters of a mile, then pulled away at the end of the mile and a sixteenth.

SAN PABLO has won stakes at four different tracks in his career, counting wins earlier this year in the Philip H. Iselin S.-G3 at Monmouth, the Birdstone S. at Saratoga, and the Shots Are Ringing S. at Aqueduct. He is one of a dozen stakes winners in 2012 for JUMP START, the leading stakes sire in the Northeast.

SMARTY JONES juvenile brings back many memories!

ElserA 2-year-old chestnut colt has stirred many memories with a sensational win on Nov. 18 at Parx Racing. RES JUDICATA, a son of the always memorable SMARTY JONES, won as the easiest of winners when taking the six and a half-furlong $75,000-added Christopher Elser Memorial S. by 6 1/2 lengths in his stakes debut. He carried the familiar blue and white silks of his breeder, Pat Chapman’s Someday Farm, who with her late husband Roy bred and campaigned SMARTY JONES.

Trainer John Servis guided SMARTY JONES through his incredible campaign, which included wins in the Kentucky Derby-G1 and Preakness S.-G1, and now has the classic winner’s flashy blaze-faced son in his barn. RES JUDICATA, a third-generation homebred for Someday Farm, won at first asking in July at Penn National. With two wins from three starts, he has earned $71,220.

SMARTY JONES won at first asking as a 2-year-old, then captured Philadelphia Park’s Pennsylvania Nursery S. by an eye-popping 15 lengths in his stakes debut. SMARTY JONES has sired 11 juvenile stakes horses in his first five crops, including graded stakes winner Rogue Romance, an earner of $291,150 as a 2-year-old. With more than $5 million in total progeny earnings in 2012, SMARTY JONES ranks second in the Northeast on the leading sires list, and is represented by 10 stakes winners this year.

Northview to Stand Multiple Graded Stakes Winner REDEEMED

Redeemed600pxREDEEMED, a wonderfully consistent son of Grade 1-winning millionaire Include, will enter stud at Northview Stallion Station in Chesapeake City, Md., for 2013. The 4-year-old, who was retired by owner Samantha Siegel’s Jay Em Ess Stable in September, will stand for $3,000 S&N. He was bred in Virginia by Wayne & Susie Taylor's Morgan Ford Farm.

"Redeemed is the entire package," said Northview's bloodstock manager Carl McEntee. "He was quick, and could carry that speed a distance while being extremely competitive against top quality fields. And he offers breeders plenty of options, being a grandson of Broad Brush out of a  *Ribot-line mare from great Calumet Farm and Tartan Farm families. He has a pedigree that is free of Raise a Native and Mr. Prospector and has one distant cross of Northern Dancer."
