    Ten Entered For Robert Dick Memorial

    Phillip Maas' homebred A She's Adorable will be seeking her second straight victory against stakes company when she meets nine rivals in the $200,000 Robert G. Dick Memorial Stakes (gr. IIIT) at Delaware Park July 17.

  • Mushka opened a clear lead in the stretch and held on for a 1 1/4-length victory in the Glen Falls Handicap at Saratoga.<br><a target="blank" href="http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/photo-store?ref=http%3A%2F%2Fpictopia.com%2Fperl%2Fgal%3Fprovider_id%3D368%26ptp_photo_id%3D8461714%26ref%3Dstory">Order This Photo</a>

    Mushka Victorious in Glen Falls Handicap

    Brushwood Stable's Mushka took over approaching the quarter-pole, opened a clear lead in the stretch, and held on for a 1 1/4-length victory in the $110,500 Glen Falls Handicap (gr. IIIT) Sept. 7 at Saratoga.

  • Caprice Uses Inside Path to Win Dick Memorial

    German-bred Caprice saved ground throughout, snuck through a hole on the inside in upper stretch, and held off Trensa by a neck to win the $171,050 Robert G. Dick Memorial Handicap (gr. IIIT) July 18 on the Delaware Park turf.

  • Winter View has won 3 in a row.

    Winter View Goes For Fourth Straight Win

    Augustin Stable's Winter View, riding a three-race win streak, the last two in graded stakes company, is the one to beat in the Robert G. Dick Memorial Stakes (gr. IIIT) July 18 at Delaware Park.

  • Winter View bounds home in the All Along.

    Late Run Earns Winter View All Along Victory

    The cutback in distance didn't seem to bother George Strawbridge Jr.'s homebred Winter View, as the daughter of Thunder Gulch came from last at the top of the stretch to run them all down in the $150,000 All Along Stakes (gr. IIIT) June 20 on the Colonial Downs turf.

  • Criticism tries to continue her winning ways in the New York Handicap.<br><a target="blank" href="http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/photo-store?ref=http%3A%2F%2Fpictopia.com%2Fperl%2Fgal%3Fprovider_id%3D368%26ptp_photo_id%3D8147547%26ref%3Dstory">Order This Photo</a>

    Criticism Tries to Continue Roll in NY 'Cap

    Darley Stable's homebred Criticism has been on quite a roll, winning four of her last five, all in graded stakes. Backseat Rhythm and Dynaforce, both grade I winners a year ago, are both coming off unplaced efforts last out. Will the hot horse continue her winning ways, will the proven grade I winners return to form, or will one of the other capable starters break through?

  • Lime Rickey has finished 2nd in three turf stakes, including the Dania (shown #8).

    Lime Rickey's Turn in Colonial Turf Cup?

    There is no doubt in the mind of Frank Alexander that Lime Rickey is a stakes-caliber type of horse. One of these days, perhaps in the $500,000 Colonial Turf Cup (gr. IIT) on June 13, the son of Lemon Drop Kid will prove it, Alexander said. All he needs is a little bit of racing luck.

  • Criticism bounds home in the Sheepshead Bay.<br><a target="blank" href="http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/photo-store?ref=http%3A%2F%2Fpictopia.com%2Fperl%2Fgal%3Fprovider_id%3D368%26ptp_photo_id%3D8147547%26ref%3Dstory">Order This Photo</a>

    Criticism Goes Gate-to-Wire in Sheepshead Bay

    Odds-on favorite Criticism notched her fourth graded stakes victory in a little more than six months, taking a short field of fillies and mares wire-to-wire in the $150,000 Sheepshead Bay Stakes (gr. IIT) May 23 on the Belmont Park turf.

  • Winter View is all alone at the finish of the Bewitch Stakes.

    Winter View Comes Right Back to Take Bewitch

    Augustin Stable's homebred Winter View went from last to first in her graded stakes debut, charging through the lane under Julien Leparoux to score the Grey Goose Bewitch Stakes (gr. IIIT) by two lengths April 23 on the Keeneland turf.

  • 2008 Bewitch winner Communique is back to try again in 2009.

    Communique Out to Defend Bewitch Title

    G. Watts Humphrey's homebred Communique makes a return trip to Keeneland April 23 to defend her Grey Goose Bewitch Stakes (gr. IIIT) title, but will have all she can handle when facing Dress Rehearsal and Winter View, each coming off impressive marathon victories.

  • Dress Rehearsal upset Criticism in the Orchid. <br><a target="blank" href="http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/photo-store?ref=http%3A%2F%2Fgallery.pictopia.com%2Fbloodhorse%2Fgallery%2F69713%2Fphoto%2F7932203%2F%3Fo%3D1">Order This Photo</a>

    Dress Rehearsal Gets it Right in Orchid

    Dress Rehearsal, a steadily improving Irish-bred filly trained by Bill Mott, turned the tables on prohibitive favorite Criticism to win the $150,000 Orchid Stakes (gr. IIIT) on the Gulfstream Park turf course March 22.

  • Criticism won The Very One last time out.<br><a target="blank" href="http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/photo-store?ref=http%3A%2F%2Fpictopia.com%2Fperl%2Fgal%3Fprovider_id%3D368%26ptp_photo_id%3D7794246%26ref%3Dstory">Order This Photo</a>

    Foreign Invaders Have Edge in Orchid

    Darley Stable's homebred Criticism, winner of consecutive graded stakes and a half-length from being undefeated since coming to the United States, tops a field of eight fillies and mares in the $150,000 Orchid Stakes (gr. IIIT) March 22 on the Gulfstream Park turf.

  • Criticism wins The Very One Stakes in gate-to-wire fashion. <br><a target="blank" href="http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/photo-store?ref=http%3A%2F%2Fgallery.pictopia.com%2Fbloodhorse%2Fgallery%2F69713%2Fphoto%2F7794246%2F%3Fo%3D0">Order This Photo</a>

    Criticism Coasts to Comfy Very One Win

    Apparently, English-bred Criticism has found the footing on American soil to her liking. The Darley homebred mare, who made her North American debut this past fall, wrapped up her second consecutive graded stakes when taking the $100,000 The Very One Stakes (gr. IIIT) in front-running fashion Feb. 22 at Gulfstream Park.

  • Lady Carlock took the Suwanee River at Gulfstream on Feb. 1.<br><a target="blank" href="http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/photo-store?ref=http%3A%2F%2Fpictopia.com%2Fperl%2Fgal%3Fprovider_id%3D368%26ptp_photo_id%3D7618320%26ref%3Dstory">Order This Photo</a>

    Anyone's Guess in The Very One

    Bentley Smith's homebred Lady Carlock may have a small edge in the $100,000 Very One Stakes (gr. IIIT) Feb. 22 at Gulfstream Park based on her victory in the Suwannee River (gr. IIIT) three weeks ago, but the wide-open turf event for fillies and mares is anyone's for the taking.

  • Herboriste takes the Rood and Riddle Dowager Stakes under Julien Leparoux.

    Herboriste Mows Down Dowager Rivals

    Herboriste never let favored Palmilla get away from her and eventually wore her rival down in the stretch to win the $150,000 Rood and Riddle Dowager Stakes by 1 1/2 lengths at Keeneland Oct. 19.

  • J'ray dominated her foes in the Taylor Made Matchmaker Stakes (gr. IIIT) Aug. 3 at Monmouth Park.

    J'ray Strides Away in Matchmaker Stretch

    Making her Monmouth Park turf debut, J'ray arrived with a big charge from mid-pack in the homestretch to win the $150,000 Taylor Made Matchmaker Stakes (gr. IIIT) going away for jockey Joe Bravo Aug. 3.

  • Presious Passion Tops Haskell Undercard

    Presious Passion's first start since his game front-running win in the United Nations (gr. IT) one month ago highlights seven stakes races worth a total of $800,000 that support the $1 million Haskell Invitational (gr. I) at Monmouth Park Aug. 3.

  • Consistent Rosinka Heads Dick Memorial

    The Lavington Stud's Rosinka, winner of five of her last six starts, looms a tough-to-defeat probable favorite in the July 12 Robert G. Dick Memorial Stakes (gr. IIIT) at Delaware Park.
