Whiteley's arrangement with Richard and Audrey Haisfield's Stonewall Farm to support their young stallion Medaglia d'Oro resulted indirectly in the recent Palm Beach S. (gr. IIIT) winner Rydilluc.
PORTER ON PEDIGREES, by Alan Porter
Although he was unplaced in his only dirt start, on the score of pedigree, one wouldn't have many concerns about Rydilluc handling synthetic or dirt surfaces.

Though the race is on the grass, the $150,000 Palm Beach Stakes (gr. IIIT) for 3-year-olds at 1 1/8 miles March 3 at Gulfstream Park has the potential to serve as a springboard to the Triple Crown trail.Thursday, February 28, 2013
