    Wake Forest Returns to Winning Ways in Mac Diarmida

    Wake Forest (GER) was given plenty of time to recover from his 2016 campaign by trainer Chad Brown, and the 7-year-old runner rewarded that patience March 4 with a narrow victory in the $200,000 Mac Diarmida Stakes (G2T) at Gulfstream Park.

  • Taghleeb takes the W. L. McKnight in a tight finish

    When Twilight Eclipse won his career debut in June 2012, his earnings of $20,400 represented a return of more than 20 times the $1,000 paid by John L. Langemeier when he bought the son of Purim at public auction.

  • Found won the Breeders' Cup Turf in 2015 and could become just the third back-to-back winner in the race's history

  • Flintshire wins the 2016 Bowling Green.

    Flintshire Scores in Eventful Bowling Green
