Marjorie L. Everett H. Recap
Carroll Castille recently bought a 20% interest in 10 horses owned by Michael Moreno’s Southern Equine Stables. Castille raises horses in Louisiana in the name of Whispering Oaks Farm, which is also the name under which he races them. Luckily for Castille, the Southern Equine package included Open Water, a multiple graded stakes-placed filly who won her first stakes in the May 18 Marjorie L. Everett Handicap (gr. II) at Betfair Hollywood Park.
Eric Guillot trains for Moreno, and he pointed Open Water for the Hollywood meeting because she likes a synthetic surface. A third partner, Mike Smith, also owns a piece of the filly.
“I gave her two months off in January because she was a little tired,” Guillot said. “I sent her to Kentucky and turned her out in a paddock. She’s only been back for seven weeks. I’m taking my stable to Saratoga this summer, but I’ll probably ship her back for the Clement L. Hirsch (gr. I) at Del Mar.”
Open Water became the second consecutive Everett winner by Include following Include Me Out, the 2012 winner. Include Me Out also won last year’s Clement L. Hirsch Stakes. On the turf at Del Mar in 2012, Open Water finished second in the San Clemente Handicap (gr. IIT) and third in the Del Mar Oaks (gr. IT). Guillot said that with her Everett victory, Open Water may have raced herself into eventual inclusion in the Southern Equine broodmare band.
“She’s got a good pedigree,” noted Guillot. “Her second dam is Flanders.”
Flanders won the Eclipse Award as the champion 2-year-old filly of 1994. She in turn produced another champion, Surfside, voted an Eclipse as the best 3-year-old filly of 2000. Flanders also produced stakes-placed Flanders Fields, a full sister to Open Water’s dam, Biscayne Bay (by A.P. Indy). Biscayne Bay has three other winners, including Folha in Brazil.
In addition to Open Water, Include has sired 2013 stakes winners Infrattini and Include the Baby, plus 26 other stakes winners. The stallion stands at Brereton Jones’ Airdrie Stud near Midway, Ky., for a 2013 stud fee of $12,500.-—T.G.
