|Beau Recall and Midnight Crossing are entered in the $200,000 G2 Yellow Ribbon Handicap on 8/4 at Del Mar. The Yellow Ribbon was carded as race 8 of 10, and has an estimated post time of 5:30 PM PT, or 8:30 ET. The Yellow Ribbon drew a full field of 12. Beau Recall drew post 1 and Midnight Crossing drew post position 3. These are good positions, as it is an incredibly short run out of the chute onto the main track and into the first turn. Horses that are drawn outside can be at a big disadvantage.
We are adding blinkers to Beau Recall in this start. We feel that she has been too far out of it entering the stretch. She has run the fastest final half mile in both of her last 2 starts, but has had way too much to do. We are hoping the blinkers keep her a little more engaged. She will still be closing ground, but should be a little closer to the field entering the lane. She has worn blinkers in her last two works, and has worked better with them on.
We were originally planning to wait and run Midnight Crossing in the G2 John Mabee at the end of the meet, but she bounced out of the Osunitas in great shape. She is a filly that carries a lot of weight, and seems to be thriving. We felt like she needed the race from a fitness perspective last time, and might improve if we ran her back a little quicker than normal.

My family’s love for the Thoroughbred dates back to the 30s when my grandfather was a top owner/breeder/trainer. Medallion allows me to continue this important family tradition while also participating as an owner at the highest levels of the sport. I fully expect Medallion to evolve into one of the top performing racing partnerships in the world. I want to be a part of this.
As a lifelong horseplayer and passion for racing, I came to a point in my life where I wanted stake in a partnership that could offer ownership at the highest level of Thoroughbred racing. Medallion Racing fit my risk tolerance with a solid business plan that detailed their mission, full transparency, weekly communication of all horses involved, and delivered on exactly what their goal was to their investors... Graded stakes winners and thrills I never imagined I would experience in my lifetime.
Since becoming an investor in Medallion Racing I have been overwhelmed with the excitement of being part of Thoroughbred racing at the highest level. What I have appreciated even more is how well the communication is between myself, the investor, and the managers of Medallion and also all the knowledge I have gained in the racing industry.
I became an investor in Medallion Racing in 2015, nothing matches the joy and excitement I receive from being part of top class racehorses such as CATHRYN SOPHIA and CALIFORNIA CHROME.
