'Anna Enjoys Dream Trip in Hillsborough

Wayne Catalano met with some resistance when he told owner Frank Calabrese that he wanted to run Kentucky homebred Dreaming of Anna in the $175,000 Hillsborough Stakes (gr. IIIT) at Tampa Bay Downs.

Many Ups, Few Downs for West Point Thoroughbreds

Despite the string of second-place finishes, Awesome Gem, who was bred in Kentucky by Runnymeade Farm Inc., Catesby Clay and Peter Callahan, has shown he can compete with the best. It gives Terry Finley hope he will surprise people in the Classic, even with such a deep field.

Lady Joanne Wins Alabama Thriller

Lady Joanne Wins Alabama Thriller

Entering the 127th running of the Alabama (gr. I), all the talk was about Octave, who had won consecutive grade I races in New York this summer, one of them over Lady Joanne. This time, Lady Joanne was not to be denied.

For a long time, it looked as though Octave would never break her reputation as a bridesmaid. Five consecutive second-place finishes -- all in graded-stakes competition -- earned her that tag. But two grade I wins later, all that talk is in the past.

There may have been questions about Octave's winning desire after five consecutive runner-up efforts dating back to last year's Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I). But not after the quality filly made it back-to-back grade I victories Saturday in the $300,000 Coaching Club American Oaks (gr. I) for 3-year-old fillies at Belmont Park.
