Steeplechasing's spring season begins in Aiken on March 23

AIKEN, S.C.--The Aiken Spring Steeplechase on Saturday, March 23 kicks of the National Steeplechase Association's spring series of races with two flat races and four hurdle races, all of which will be streamed live.

Springdale 460x345.86466165414 cRicky Hendriks, who lost both the Leading Trainer, Races Won and Money Won titles by a nose to Jack Fisher last year, is starting this season with five entries in the four hurdle races, including Rosbrian Farm's Barhanpour in the $30,000 Imperial Cup, an overnight handicap.

Fisher, who concentrates on the big races later in the year, has nothing entered at Aiken.

The following Saturday, March 30, is the Carolina Cup in Camden, S.C., but there's a change in venue for the April 6 meet.

 The Georgia Steeplechase in Kingston, Ga., was originally scheduled for April 6, but the race organizers moved it to the fall because they said an undue amount of rain had made it impossible to hold that meet.

The NSA and the Carolina Cup Racing Association will host “The Cup Runneth Over,” a full program of jump racing offering $90,000 in purses at the Springdale Race Course in Camden, S.C., on Saturday, April 6.

Australian Supermare Winx Looks Destined for Yet More Success in Sydney

Australian racing fans have been truly spoilt over the last few years. Sports enthusiasts in the Southern Hemisphere have been lucky enough to witness wonder-mare Winx in her pomp and despite her advancing years, the eight-year old still appears to have plenty left in the tank. The daugher of Street Cry's 2019 debut is yet to be confirmed but connections are expecting another twelve months of all-conquering displays on the turf.

March12pic1Source: Susie Blackman via Twitter
Winx's record is absolutely astonishing and she's written herself into racing history having dominated down under since mid-2015. She hasn't been defeated for almost four years, winning 33 of her 39 outings and securing the Cox Plate for four consecutive seasons. She confirmed her status as a sporting superstar with her fourth victory in the prestigious race at Moonee Valley on October 28th when she finished two lengths ahead of British raider Benbatl. Despite scepticism pre-race, Winx displayed all the hallmarks of a true champion when she steered herself clear of the field to secure the 22nd Group Race of her remarkable career. No other thoroughbred has won the race on four consecutive occasions and she is likely to return to Melbourne to defend her crown later in 2019.

"They only breed Arrogate to 150 mares, and 50 of those slots they use for their own mares, and he had at least 500 applications."

Arrogate won the Travers and the Breeder's cup Classic in 2016 and the Dubai World Cup in 2017, and he is by Unbridled's Song, and Still Having Fun''s grand-sire on the female side is Dehere, so Casual Kiss was obviously a good nick with the Undridled's Song line.

"Casual Kiss is down at Juddmonte now," McGinnes said. "We have Still Having Fun's mother and two sisters, Honey Bun and Scoot, who's by Scat Daddy. This will make their yearlings more valuable at sales."

Tequilita wins G3 Rampart Stakes at Gulfstream

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla-Dorothy A. (D.D.) Matz' Tequilita, ridden by Luis Saez, won the $100,000 G3 Rampart Stakes at one mile at Gulfstream Park on Dec. 15, improving her career statistics to five wins, four seconds and two thirds from 19 starts and earnings of $666,100.

Strret SenseStreet Sense. Tequilita will be bred to him next spring.Tequilita’s win was her first since taking the G3 Charles Town Oaks on Sept. 23, 2017.

Her trainer, Michael Matz, who also trained Tequilita's sire, Union Rags, was interviewed on television before the race.

“She’s better if she lays a little bit off the pace and then just keeps running at them,” Michael said. “Sometimes, if she gets a lead, she’ll just kind of wait a little bit. Saez has ridden her a bunch of times and he’s done really well with her."

"We’re going to breed her this spring, and my wife said let’s finish up in Florida here, and thank God we ended up on a good note, because there was a little bit of a lull there for a while," said Michael. "I think it was basically my fault. After her 3-year-old season, she acts and she trains like she could stretch out, but she just wants one turn. I think there’s another race down here for her. This is her best distance, a one-turn mile. If it is her last race, then she went out on a winning note.”
