Midnight Crossing is entered in the $75,000 Osunitas Stakes on 7/20 at Del Mar.  The Osunitas was carded as race 7 of 8, and has an estimated post time of 7:00 PM PT, or 10:00 ET.  The Osunitas drew a full field of 12.  Midnight Crossing drew post position 11, which can be a tough post in 8.5F races at Del Mar, as they start on the chute inside of the track.  This leaves the horses, with a very short run into the turn onto the main track.

Midnight Crossing has been training very forward for this race, and the barn expects a big effort for her in this spot.  With that said, this race is very competitive, and she will need to get a good trip if she has a chance to win.  We are taking the blinkers off her in this race, which I think is very important.  She has trained well without blinkers, and I think it could help her relax and have a stronger kick at the end of races.  Previously, we had talked about how Midnight Crossing’s best chance to win was if she was on the lead.  In this race it will be very unlikely that she gets to the lead.  The #12 is very fast out of the gate, and will need to be ridden aggressively from that post.  The 1 is also very fast, and is another whose post might force their hand.  I would envision us breaking, and trying to follow the 12 over towards the rail.  Ideally we will be in 3rd early towards the outside.  She does not enjoy being in behind horses, so getting her free sailing is very important.

Midnight Crossing will hopefully get into a good stalking position early.  She does not have an explosive kick, but is a grinder.  Hopefully she can be on the lead with an eighth of a mile left and hold off the closers.

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.

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.

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.

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.
