ELECTRIFIED to be entered Sept 1
We hope she will draw into the 1X allowance race on Sept 1. It is to be run at 1 1/16 on the turf.

ELECTIFIED a good third in allowance company
In an off the turf 6 furlong allowance race, ELECTIFIED ran very well to come in 3rd. She was running too short for her taste and on a heavy track. She was catching the horse who finished 2nd. She has now earned over $67,000. We believe she wants to go long on the turf.

Catching up with Joule
Joule is happily going to the track in Aiken and jogging and galloping. She is very eager and full of herself and is a happy horse. She is also a very BIG girl so we will take our time.

Catching up with Geladeira
Gelly was working at Belmont with Leah Gyamarti towards her first start. In a work out of the gate she must have hit some hard dirt as she came up with a sore right shin. She stayed with Leah and should be ready for Belmont spring also.

Catching up with Electrified
This season ELECTRFIED had a win at Belmont, a second at Belmont and 2 seconds at Saratoga. She has earned $61,380 so far. After a "vacation" in Aiken, she is back in training and she is focused and training well. We hope to have her ready when the turf is good to go at Belmont.

Catching up with Analysis
ANALYSIS has been retired after winning $145,566. He had 2 wins, 3 seconds and 1 third. One of his wins was at Saratoga which was a real thrill. He has been retired and is owned by one of our Mosaic partners. He had an injury so needs a lot of down time, but he should come back strong for sport other than racing.

Catching up with Circuitous
CIRCUITOUS is in Aiken with an event rider who intends to bring him along to become her eventing partner. He is very happy in his work and LOVES to jump. He is going to be wonderful cross country. Mosaic takes responsibility for its horses after racing and Circuitous is in wonderful hands as is Analysis.

Electrified runs a good second
Electrified came back after a long layoff to be a good second at Belmont on July 16. This should set her up perfectly for a start at Saratoga. She came out of the race happy and sound. Analysis and the two year old filly Geladeira are still in Aiken at the training track. Watch for them this fall.

Analysis had an excellent 2nd at Belmont
Analysis was a bit far back on the backstretch going 1 1/16th on the turf. He made a good move outside, got up for the lead in deep stretch and just got nipped in the shadow of the wire. The chart caller says that he finished willingly. He has earned $145,306.

4th today
Analysis was back early and came very wide to grab 4th.

Throw this one out
Analysis reared at the start and lost all chance, but he still passed 3 horses.

Analysis aiming for an allowance race on August 3rd
Analysis did well last year in Saratoga and we hope he will do so again this season. He is being pointed to an allowance race on August 3rd going 1 1/16 on the turf.

July 9 a disappointment
Analysis went off the heavy favorite and then made a move to soon in the race when a horse came up suddenly outside of him. He came out of the race fine and is now in Saratoga.

Analysis pointing to an allowance race on July 9th
We are planning on a start on July 9 going 1 1/16 on the turf in allowance company. He has a good solid work this morning and seems on his game.

Electrified a strong third in her first start
Electrified could not catch the $430,000 Tapit filly but she almost had the Distorted Humor beaten. She was catching her but ran out of ground. We are proud of her third in her first start.

Analysis third in his first race back
Analysis ran third going 1 1/16 on the turf at Belmont. The winner got loose on the lead and won wire to wire. The race itself was almost 2 seconds faster than his previous races, so he did pick up some speed. He raced in 5th and then made a slight move to hold the show. He has earned over $126,000.

Analysis and Electrified
Analysis will be entered to run on June 14th going 1 1/16 on the turf in allowance company. Johnny V is not available as he will be riding for George in Canada. Rajiv Maragh will be riding. Hall of Fame Angel Cordero is his agent as well as Johnny V's. Electrified is being pointed to a race at a mile on the turf on June 20th. She will have bug boy ( apprentice jockey) Eric Cancel up. He has been breezing her right along, and he knows her and likes her. Eric also has Angel Cordero as his agent and is doing well. I am assured that he has the maturity to make sure she has a good first trip.

Analysis and Electrified leaving for Belmont soon
Both horses enjoyed vacation time in Aiken over the late fall and early winter and are now about to leave for Belmont. Analysis is fit and should be ready for a start soon after Belmont opens. Electrified is a bit behind in fitness but had her first little breeze yesterday.

Both horses have enjoyed hacking out on the clay roads in Aiken and "playing" with a hunter/jumper rider up as well as their track work.

ANALYSIS crossed entered
Analysis is entered in an allowance race at Belmont on the 17th going a mile on the turf. He has the 1 hole with Joe Bravo riding. He is also entered in the $200,000 Mohawk S on the 18th going 1 1/16 with Joel Rosario named to ride. He has the 2 hole in that race. They will decide Friday morning which to go for!

Electrified has her first published work
Electrified worked three furlongs in 38.09 Breezing on the Oklahoma Training Track at Saratoga. Jimmy Bond clocked her too and got her in 37 and change. She outworked her workmate and they are going to pair her up with another filly. S

Circuitous in the ring at R and M with an intern riding.

ELECTRIFIED's first slow breeze (video)
Electrified goes 2 furlongs in 26 seconds at the Oklahoma Training Track (Saratoga Springs, NY) You have to wait for her to have her warm up gallop first.

Analysis a closing second
Analysis closed off a crawling post to be second in his allowance race on the 13th. In a couple of jumps he would have passed the winner who was tiring on the lead. This was a particularly tough field and the condition of the turf was greasy after a sudden hard rain. 

The 1 -2 finish resulted in an Aiken Exacta!



Analysis entered to run at Belmont Sept 13 th
Analysis is in the 7th post position with Irad Ortiz up. It is the 10th race of the day going 1 1/16 on the turf. It is a very contentious field and should be an exciting race. If the race comes off the turf, he will not run.

Analysis showed a new dimension charging wide from off the pace to get his nose in front and win at Saratoga. The race at a mile seemed short for him, but he showed himself well able to close. Corey Lanerie allowed him to settle at the back of the field going at a comfortable cruising speed and then he asked at the perfect time and Analysis responded. 

We have learned  that Analysis has way more gears than we realized. He has quite a turn of foot and can close off what was a moderate pace. He does not require a speed duel up front to get it done.

Analysis an excellent second
Analysis ran a good second in a tough field which included a stakes placed horse who was 3rd last out in the Kingston. Analysis showed us that he can step up into this company and belongs there. He was well behaved in the paddock (thanks to Blair's schooling), he broke well and then he got a very good ride from Corey Lanerie. He rated just off the pace inside horses and then came outside to engage the leader. He raced with that horse until he put him away in the stretch and he gained the lead. The eventual winner came way wide and Analysis may not even have seen him. He kept going willingly for second.

Analysis allowed to coast home in an off the turf allowance race
Analysis became very upset in the paddock and most likely left his race there. The race was off the turf and the track was muddy. When it was clear he was not going to fire, Johnny V let him coast. He also reported that Analysis did not like the going. We will cross this one off and hope for good weather in the future.

ANALYSIS thrilled us all stalking a slow pace in second and then accelerating in the stretch to win by a length.

New trainer for MOSAIC
We have asked George Weaver to become the trainer of our horses. He and his wife Cindy are excellent horse people and also very personable. I think it will be a good match for us.

Electrified UPDATE
Electrified loves to train and is very agressive and quite precocious. We will go on with her if she keeps progressing at this rate. Her work mates are an Indian Charlie filly and a Super Saver filly and she is right there with them.

Analysis UPDATE
Analysis arrived in Aiken this fall still uncomfortable. Our trainer Cary Frommer suggested testing for Lyme Disease and he was positive for it. He has been treated over the last months and is now picking up speed on the track. We have mostly been communicating via e-mail and Face Book. When we get close to a race again, we will jump start the website.

Analysis needs time off
Analysis was off behind after his race and although he came to the farm just for some jogging and good eats, his lameness escalated. He has Plantar Metatarsal Disease which is good old fashioned bone bruising. It is effecting both hind fetlocks at the bottom of the cannon bone. He will require stall rest and then small paddock turn out, but he will be fine. Carrots and barn visits are in order.

Circuitous is not going to withstand race training
We are sorry to report that although Circuitous enjoyed his little faster gallop, his tendon did not. We do not want to risk him further and the veterinarian concludes that although he will be sound for lots of jobs, he will not withstand racing. He is a lovely horse and we are looking for a nice place for him to work on a new skill. As you all know, he has done some ring work and Heidi White worked with his too, so he already knows more than just turning left on the race track. We are sad to lose his racing ability but relieved to at least know he is not at risk.

Analysis entered 6/29
Analysis has Post 9 in the 6th race going 6 furlongs on the turf. He will have Luis Saez up and wear blinkers for the first time.

Circuitous works inside today

Circuitous worked in the ring today as the track was not perfect after all the torential rain. He hacked over from his barn and seemed to enjoy trotting and cantering and doing a few circling exercises and figure eights.


Analysis breezed a half in 48.91
Jimmy did not want him to go this fast but all is well. Jimmy does not have a race in sight yet.

Circuitous trotting and cantering 2 miles
David trots amd lets Circuitous break into a slow canter on the track now. Today he went 2 miles. If there is no filling or heat in the tendon we will very gradually do more cantering. So far things have been going really well. LeRoy Jolley was in the barn this morning and interestingly he could not see the profile of the injured tendon at all.

Analysis yesterday at Belmont
It was a rodeo but Analysis showed he will run on the grass.

New training photos up

New to the cast of characters is David Csesznok riding C this morning. David comes to Stone Bridge after riding for Darley in the early morning. He has been on Alpha who is deep in the female family of our horses.

You have met Virginia Verdecanna, but here she is again on Buck. Buck is an elderly outrider's pony and is often on the muscle to chase after his charges. Virginia is the farm's resident trainer and she oversees the training and feeding of Circuitous and other horses in training or coming back to fitness.

Crossing the stone bridge, it looks as though C has broken into a little canter. He is eager for more, but very happy to listen to David.  He is trotting 1 1/2 miles now - with the occasional little canter.


Analysis entered on 5/30 - last race PP 5
The race is a MSW 6 furlongs on the turf. His odds are 6-1 along with a lot of others.

We are the lead on the Chronicle's Website and FaceBook page
The Chronicle of the Horse has posted our article on the top of its homepage on its website and Face Book and we are getting some wonderful comments. I certainly do not consider myself a trainer though.

Circuitous went to the track today!
He jogged once around like a perfect gentleman.

Analysis worked a half in 48 and change
He breezed on the training track for a half and then galloped out 5/8ths in 1.01 and change.

Circuitous poised to start training with a rider
Circuitous got his carrots from me today. Tomorrow he should go to the farm track and jog with a rider. I feel he needs to jog once around - 7 furlongs for a week or so and then if he is comfortable with that, move along to twice around jogging. I want him equally to go both directions. Gavin or Antonio may ride or possibly a girl from Bill Mott's barn.

First Race for Analysis
It was destined to be as Analysis with in the 4th Post Position in the 4th race on the 4th of May and of course he finished 4th.

Analysis showed a new dimension charging wide from off the pace to get his nose in front and win at Saratoga. The race at a mile seemed short for him, but he showed himself well able to close. Corey Lanerie allowed him to settle at the back of the field going at a comfortable cruising speed and then he asked at the perfect time and Analysis responded. 

We have learned  that Analysis has way more gears than we realized. He has quite a turn of foot and can close off what was a moderate pace. He does not require a speed duel up front to get it done.

We just returned from our visit with Watt Ever and Baby WE (that's what we call her). What a SPECIAL big girl she is! She's lively, animated, energetic, curious, and engaging. We had a wonderful time with her and Momma. The moment we arrived Watt Ever demanded her carrots, and Baby WE came immediately to the front of the stall to check out who had come to visit. She was eager to engage us, but we just talked to her rather than trying to touch her. Then we just watched Momma and Baby for about 15 minutes. Baby WE was so interested in what Momma was doing, and she just did the same thing either at the same time or right after - e.g., Watt Ever was eating hay, so WE ate hay (some of her own and some out of the bunch in Momma's mouth!), Momma drank water so WE had water (it was fun to watch her discover how the watering bowl worked!). Then she had a big drink of milk. Interspersed with all this action were a few trips around the stall just to play! She is so animated!!!

She showed no need for rest during our time there, and when we were ready to leave, she was right up at the front of the stall again, keeping us in view, and I think she would have followed us out if the stall door had been open!! We had a really wonderful time, and both momma and baby looked great.

Watt Ever and Baby WE are on one side of the main barn with another mare and baby in a stall directly across from them. That baby slept during the time we were there and that mare seemed to need to watch over her baby quite intently (as opposed to Watt Ever who was content to let her baby amuse herself while she herself had her carrots, hay, and water). I'm not sure if there are others there in the barn too as we did see another mare and baby out in a paddock as we were leaving.

Author: Marty Farnsworth writing about Deauville

DEAUVILLE: What a nice town and track. It's definitely the French Saratoga. The town is about the same size as S but like all French towns, more compact. So once you've parked you can walk anywhere. Think Saratoga squeezed up, and with the racecourse starting on the far side of Congress Park. (Sorry, Marilyn!)

The track itself is much larger; it's about twice as far between the front and back
sides. There's no screen in the infield so you can barely see them on the far side.
Now I know why Juddmonte has that pink cap; it is easy to follow their horses from
that distance. (Unfortunately, their gorgeous 2-year-old Empire Maker colt was easy to see anyway as he never left the rear.) There's a poly track inside the turf track and they used it for the lower level races.

It's all quite peaceful and dignified. And spotless! It's also a lot cosier, with
more of a communal feel. Olivier Peslier was hanging out with his friends during one of the two races limited to apprentice jockeys and there was a lot more back and forth between the race goers and the race people. Only downside was the cold! A stiff wind was coming off the channel.
