Princess of Sylmar
And Why Not
Princess of Sylmar used the $100,000 Cat Cay Stakes as a good starting point for the 2014 season at Aqueduct Racetrack April 6, gliding through an opening off the turn and cruising to victory.
Princess of Sylmar, who won a pair of stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack before going on to win four grade I races during her 2013 season, will return to the track April 6 to make her 4-year-old debut in the $100,000 Cat Cay.
It's not often that the connections of a one-horse consignment lead over a sale topper at public auction, but that's exactly what happened to Hoby and Layna Kight at Fasig-Tipton's Florida sale March 24.
With a bullish juvenile sale market on the move, Fasig-Tipton enters its annual Florida sale of select 2-year-olds in training March 24 at Adena Springs South near Williston, Fla.
Stonestreet homebred Teen Pauline put on another front-running show at Aqueduct while rolling to her third straight win and first graded stakes victory in the $200,000 Top Flight Handicap (gr. II) March 1.

Wise Dan, the 2013 Horse of the Year, became the first horse to win three championships in consecutive years.
Beholder's smashing victory in the Breeders' Cup Distaff (gr. I) ensured her a second consecutive Eclipse Award. She was voted champion 3-year-old filly of 2013 over finalists Princess of Sylmar and Close Hatches.
Todd Pletcher's deep bench of top quality runners sometimes make it difficult to gauge his accomplishments when compared to those of other trainers. But in 2013, he was in a league of his own.
Superstar mare Royal Delta easily dominated the older female division and notched her third straight Eclipse Award by virtue of three impressive graded stakes victories last year, one of which was grade I.
In the older female Eclipse Award category, two-time champion Royal Delta is the standout finalist, while other impressive mares Joyful Victory and Tiz Miz Sue attempt to make a case with their 2013 grade I accomplishments.
Perhaps no Eclipse Award category overflowed with more talent than among the 3-year-old fillies of 2013. They performed admirably against each other and then went out and defeated the best of their older counterparts.
Led by Horse of the Year candidates Mucho Macho Man, Will Take Charge, and 2012 Horse of the Year Wise Dan, the finalists for the 2013 Eclipse Awards were announced Jan. 8.
