Featured   ••   Sassy Sienna

Sassy Sienna ran a very good 2nd in the G3 Monmouth Oaks.

Sassy Sienna broke well from the outside, but there was a lot of speed to her inside.  Paco Lopez ended up having to back off the speed, and was 4 wide on the turn.  He ended up taking her back to 6th, which I think was his only real option in the race.  She started to make up a little ground on the backside, until she had worked her way up into 4th on the far turn.  She had to be pushed very wide on the far turn, and entered the stretch in 3rd place.  She put in a good run down the stretch, but could not catch the winner, who got a perfect ground saving trip in 2nd the whole way.

Sassy Sienna ran a 9.75 Ragozin, which was the best number of her life in this race.  She came out of the race in good shape, and already shipped back to Churchill.  We weren’t sure why she ran so poorly in Iowa, but obviously she can handle shipping.  We sent her to Monmouth a little earlier, which could have helped her settle.

We will give her a few weeks before deciding on her next start.

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.

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.

Mark S., Investor

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.
