Featured   ••   Queen Blossom

Queen Blossom ran a very strong 2nd in the Possibly Perfect Stakes this weekend.  She broke very sharply in this start, which was a big concern after her last few races.  Her sharp break allowed her to get into a good stalking position in 2nd place.  We were hoping to be sitting in 3rd or 4th, but no one wanted to press Plein Air on the lead, so we defaulted to that position.  They went to the first quarter in 23.85, and the second quarter in 23.89.  Anytime the second quarter is the same or faster than the first quarter it normally favors horses coming from off the pace.  Santa Anita also seemed to be favoring horses coming from off the pace in distance turf races over the weekend.

Queen Blossom stalked in second until they exited the far turn where she took over the lead.  She quickened nicely, and battled the length of the stretch until she got caught the last 70 yards.  Jockey, Flavien Prat, said he might have moved a little early, but he put her in the spot to win.

She seems to be very happy down at San Luis Rey, and we will keep her there.  There is an 11 furlong race at Del Mar on August 15th, that is a logical spot.  We are hopeful that they might write an allowance for her during the first week of Del Mar.  She earned an 88 beyer in this race, which is comparable to the 89 she ran last time.  If she can continue to run well I think we can look at any race in California at 10+ furlongs.

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.

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.
