Applecross made her 2020 debut in the G2 San Clemente at Del Mar. She broke well from the outside post and Drayden van Dyke was able to get her over 2 wide entering the first turn. Unfortunately she got stuck behind a tiring Lazy Daisy, and had nowhere to go as the field was on the far turn. She lost 4 lengths, before she was able to start her run from last entering the straight. She ran on well, and galloped out great, but had no shot for a better placement, when having to take back at a critical juncture. She came out of the race in great shape, and is pointing for the G1 Del Mar Oaks. We think she should improve over the 9F, and making her 2nd start off the layoff.

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.
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.
