Applecross   ••   Featured

Applecross ran a career best 85 beyer when finishing 5th in the Lady of Shamrock Stakes, beaten 1.75 lengths for the win. Applecross has been a little unlucky with a few minor issues this year, and it was nice to have her back for her 2nd race in two months.

Applecross broke well before settling in 7th position early. She eased out on the far turn before commencing her run. She had to shift out when the 8 pushed her way out, and ending up slowly gaining into 5th at the line. The turf course on Saturday played heavily towards speed horses, with 3 of the last 4 grass races being won in gate to wire fashion. The other grass race was won by the heavy favorite who sat in 2nd off a 10-1 shot, and barely collared that horse for the win. This track profile worked against Applecross.

Applecross came out of the race in good shape, and has a lot of different options heading into the new year. We can drop her back into a first level allowance for a confidence booster, or continue on the path to add more blacktype to her resume.

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.

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.
