Fathers day is a day for dads to be recognized for the responsibilities they undertake during the years that their children are raised and the continued support they provide throughout their lives.
It is a time for families to bond and enjoy each other's company and for fathers to reflect on the influence they have had on their children.
The recent father's day celebration coincided with one of our horses making its career debut.
The owners of the horse are a father and son partnership that share the passion for horse racing. They go to great lengths to bolster their relationship through their horses.

Redaspen takes the Foxy JG in fine style
Posted June 25, 2005
Redaspen won her first stakes race, winning the Foxy JG, a 3yo filly PA stakes race. Here is the chart (race 7). She broke on the outside, stalked the pace down the backside, got close going around the turn (again on the outside) and then took the lead in the lane and drew 1 1/2 lengths clear by the wire. An impressive performance.
Victor Molina, who gave Redaspen a confident ride (he has ridden her in all eight starts to date) was very complimentary about the condition of the filly and seems excited with her prospects for the summer. Its always good to have someone with such experience giving you positive feedback on the your horse's progress, and having the consistency of Victor's services for each of her starts.
Redaspen seems to have come out of her race in good order. We are thinking of keeping her in PA bred stakes for now, and perhaps run her back in late July.

The Triple Crown
Posted June 17, 2005
The triple crown races this past spring brought us all the excitement and the drama that horse racing invariably does. Eager anticipation after months of expectations were put to the test in the two minutes it took to run the Kentucky Derby. Some owners were switching their horses to more accomplished trainers, jockeys were clinging to keep their mounts through no fault of their own, and horses were touted in the papers by sports writers looking for sensations.
