Featured   ••   Queen Blossom

Queen Blossom ran a strong 2nd in the CTT and TOC Stakes at Del Mar.

This race had 3 scratches, and ended up running as a field of 4.  Sometimes these small fields become a jockeys race of cat and mouse.  Unfortunately in this race, I think we were the mouse.  Queen Blossom broke well, and settled into 3rd early, only a length or so off the lead.  She maintained this position until the far turn, when she challenged for the lead.  Unfortunately this caused her to go 3-4 wide in a 4 horse field.  Queen Blossom is a leggy filly who has a long stride.  The tight turns at Del Mar are always going to be tougher for her to gain ground on, especially if she is swung wide.  Once she got into the straight she pulled away from the 3rd and 4th place finishers, but couldn’t hold off the winner.

It was a little disappointing not to win, but I think Queen Blossom ran well, and came out of the race well.  The winner is a horse that I think is on the improve, and has always shown a lot of ability.  She ran 4th in the G1 Kentucky Oaks last year.

At this point we are looking at the G1 Rodeo Drive for Queen Blossom’s next start.  There is also a distance race at KY Downs, that is a possibility for her

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.

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.

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.
