    Redaspen

    Status: Racing

    Owner: Equivine Farm
    Talented filly. In 2005 she placed third in a PA bred stake at Penn National and followed that up with a nice win in the Foxy JG at Philadelphia Park. She was third in the Mrs Penny Stakes at Philadelphia Park, second in a stake at Delaware Park and at Monmouth. She finished her season in fine style by dominating an allowance field on the turf at Laurel. She has never been out of the first three on the dirt or turf through 2005.

    Enjoyed a lengthy winter vacation, and really benefited from it. In 2006 she won her first stakes race in open company at the Meadowlands. She also was impressive in an allowance win at Laurel. She finished the year with a fourth in a $100,000 stake at Laurel. She looks to have improved in 2006, with Beyer numbers of 91 and 93. She is now having her winter break with the idea of coming back for a spring start to the turf season.

    2007
    Returned to training week of January 15.
    Two starts, a third in the Dahlia at Laurel, a win in the Politely at Monmouth

    Gator Nation

    Status: Racing

    Owner: Planetree Farm
    Five year old gelding. First venture into racing by the new owners of Planetree Farm. He has now made a few starts. His first start was very encouraging, he was a fast closing third, only just losing out to the second horse, maiden on the turf in Philadelphia Park. He has had a few subsequent races which have not been as promising, but he does appear to be a decent prospect for the turf. He is currently limited to dirt racing. His two most recent starts are an improvement, a close fourth at Laurel followed by a fast closing second on February 22.

    Farouche

    Status: Racing

    Owner: Meg Ferguson
    3 yo chestnut filly.

    She arrived from a training center in Florida mid June. She made her first start, february 21 at Philadelphia Park. She finished sixth, she had a little troubled trip, hitting the rail which halted her momentum. She would have finished closer.

    Real Lace

    Owner: Equivine
    3yo Real Quiet filly.
    She had a decent campaign early in the year. She had some time off over the summer and has come back looking very sharp. She has run three times at Laurel, winning two in impressive fashion. An exciting prospect.

    A rangy looking 4yo filly. She trained early in the year. Had some time off over the summer to grow into herself. She is now back in training, and made her first lifetime start at Laurel in mid february. She ran a nice fourth.

    Luke

    Status: Pony

    Luke is the stable pony. He is the hardest worker on our team, whether it is keeping company to some of the younger horses when they go to the track or overseeing the works of Redaspen.

    Luke has been with the barn for six years and we hope for many more.

    Who's Happy

    Status: Racing

    Owner: Fiasco Farm
    3yo filly by Caller ID, half sister to Raging Rapids
    Nice rangy filly with a good disposition. She ran her first race in early december. A nice education, she came in fourth at Philadelphia Park. Her second start, January 23 at Philadelphia Park, she ran a nice third.

    Since stretching out Who's Happy has reeled off three nice wins at Philadelphia Park.

    Something Wild

    Status: On Break

    Owner: Walter and Ron Simak
    Three year old gelding, half brother to Getaway Car.
    He is a nice, small, stocky looking colt with great disposition (attitude). He has run a few times this year, winning on his second try. He also placed in a couple of races. A nice prospect, on break.
