Grade I winner A P. Valentine was represented by his first winner when a 2-year-old daughter from his second crop, Higgie, won July 9 at Monmouth Park in her first start. Bred in Kentucky by Cherry Valley Farm, Rick Pitino, and Joey Carballeira, Higgie ran the five furlongs in :59.99 to win for Runnin Cardinal Stable. She is out of the stakes-winning Housebuster mare Aces, whose other five foals of racing age are all winners.
A P Valentine (A.P. Indy
--Twenty Eight Carat, by Alydar) stands for $5,000 at Dr. and Mrs. William C. Day's Cedar Creek Farm near Brenham, Texas.
