Pocket Aces Racing Aquires 2 New Racing Prospects

Well, after several months and a few thousand miles travelling to Florida and Maryland to inspect nearly 2,000 horses Pocket Aces Racing has acquired 2 new racing prospects for its stable. We believe these are 2 very special horses as it has been extremely difficult finding 2-year-old horses in-training that meet our very rigid pedigree, physical and performance standards at prices that allow us to syndicate them affordably.

Our 1st addition to the stable is a filly by El Corredor, out of a stakes placed earner of over $250,000 named Peanut Gallery. El Corredor, a Grade 1 winner himself, is the sire of 6 crops to date with progeny earnings of nearly $20,000,000. In his short career at stud El Corredor has had amazing success with his female progeny as he is already the sire of 3 Grade 1 winning fillies – Adieu, winner of the Frizette-G 1 and earner of over $900,000; Backseat Rhythm, winner of the Garden City H.-G 1 and earner of over $800,000 and Crisp, winner of this year’s edition of the Santa Anita Oaks-G 1 and earner of over $250,000. Physically she is just a gorgeous filly with tons of substance, quality and athleticism. She has been in training since the beginning of year and her consignor tells us that she hasn’t missed a day due to soundness or any other health issue since she began. As of right now we feel like she should be a forward type that could be ready to run within the next few months. Shares in the filly are priced at $1,800 with no bills until October 1, 2010. If necessary, partners will be billed, beginning October 1, 2010, $300 quarterly for expenses. Half shares and discounts for multiples are available.

Our 2nd addition is a colt by the world class sire Medaglia d’ Oro, out of a Meadowlake mare that has produced a G 3 winner and nearly $250,000 earner named Snorter. We feel like this is a rare and extraordinarily special opportunity for our clients to invest in a thoroughbred with limitless upside. His sire, Medaglia d’ Oro, stands at Sheikh Mohammed’s Darley Stud for $100,000 and from just 3 crops of racing age he has already sired champion and horse of the year for 2009 Rachel Alexandra as well as Grade 1 winning colts Warrior’s Reward and Passion for Gold. Physically this colt reminds us a lot of his father, a 7 time Graded Stakes winner and earner of over $5,000,000, as he is a big, strong imposing horse with balance, scope and agility. Shares in the colt are priced at $2,600 with no bills until October 1. If necessary, partners will be billed, beginning October 1, 2010, $300 quarterly for expenses. Half shares and discounts for multiples are available.

Pocket Aces Racing looks forward to answering any questions you might have about our latest offerings. Please fell free to contact Marc A. Wampler (859) 312-6272 or Jared Shoemaker (606) 922-9325 at your convenience.

Here's The Deal Identifies 2010 Kentucky Derby Winner in January Blog Entry

Our post titled "Yes, It's Early but Here Are 5 Horses To Keep An Eye On For The Derby" dated January 26, 2010 identified eventual winner Super Saver as one of the leading candidates to win the 2010 Kentucky Derby winner. Please don't ask how the other 4 did but we got the 1 that mattered most.

Super Saver with the coveted Blanket of Roses

As we pointed out back in January Super Saver should, and did, benefit from his earlier experience over the Churchill Downs track and his expert human connections were a big key in getting this horse to peak at the right time.

Good luck to Super Saver, Calvin Borel, Todd Pletcher and the entire WinStar team at the Preakness!!!
