Hirschy became the first winner for new sire Papa Clem when the 2-year-old colt won a maiden special weight race Aug. 1 at the Sonoma County Fair in Santa Rosa, Calif.

Tracker Jacker, who sold for an auction-record $525,000 at the OBS June 2-year-olds in training and horses of racing age sale, is scheduled to arrive from Ocala at trainer Mark Casse's barn at Churchill Downs June 21.
Given the results of its two previous auctions this year and the booming market, it's no surprise that OBS closed out the lucrative juvenile sale season with a June record top-priced horse and across-the-board benchmarks.
Dual grade I winner and first-crop sire Pioneerof the Nile saw his first winner May 12 as juvenile filly Zarnica won her first start in a 1,000-meter race in Russia at the Rostov-On-Don Hippodrome.
Jockey Rafael Bejarano earned the 3,000th North American victory of his career when 1-2 favorite Ondine rolled to an easy victory in the first race May 11 at Betfair Hollywood Park.
Gun Roar (Bernstein) got up late for victory at Churchill Downs. For Saturday, 2 two-year-old races, one at Calder and one at Lone Star Park. Plus, a new worker for Pioneerof the Nile. read blog
