Grade I winner andTDN Rising Star‘ Diversify (Bellamy Road) is among a field of seven set to square off in the $1.2-million GII Charles Town Classic Saturday. The New York-bred capped a three-race win streak with a front-running tally in the GI Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont last October, but connections opted to skip the GI Breeders’ Cup Classic and he instead shipped to Churchill Downs for the Nov. 24 GI Clark H., in which faded to fourth. That was his first start outside of the Empire State, so there’s at least some question as to how he’ll handle new surroundings and a quirky bull-ring track, but the Rick Violette, Jr. pupil has been working swiftly at Palm Meadows since his last afternoon appearance.

Past Charles Town experience has proven an advantage in this race...

Linda Sasscer Hill, author of the mystery novel Flamingo Road, received the 12th annual Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award on the evening of Apr. 19 at the Ryan family’s Castleton Lyons near Lexington. Sasscer Hill is a former amateur steeplechase jockey who has bred, owned and trained Thoroughbreds in Maryland for more than 30 years. She is a descendent of Maryland Governor Samuel Ogle, who established the historically significant Belair Stud in 1747.

Flamingo Road is first in a limited series of novels centered around Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau agent Fia McKee. The book includes themes such as equine slaughter and racetrack doping. The second volume of the series, The Dark Side of Town, was released Apr. 17.

Lead judge Kay Coyte, formerly of the Washington Post, called Flamingo Road “a can’t-put-it-down book, with snappy dialogue and plenty of twists and turns… Sasscer Hill’s evocative storytelling likely comes from her own racing...

Calumet Farm’s Risen Star Bravazo (Awesome Again), winner of the GII Risen Star S., breezed six furlongs in 1:15.40 Friday morning at Churchill Downs in preparation for the May 5 GI Kentucky Derby.

Accompanied by stablemates Take Notice (Speightstown) and Berko (Justin Phillip), the homebred carved out splits of :25.20, :37.80, :50.60 and 1:03 and finished five lengths in front before galloping out seven furlongs 1:28.80, according to Churchill Downs clocker John Nichols.

“I was very pleased with the work,” affirmed Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas. “It will be six weeks since he last raced [GII Louisiana Derby Mar. 24], so I wanted to put him in a situation where it would feel like an actual race. He did everything just like we wanted and I think he’ll get a lot out of this work. He didn’t want to pull up after he was finished. My rider was exhausted.”

Toronto, ON–Pink Lloyd (Old Forester) became a fan favorite in 2017 winning a stakes race in each of his eight starts and Thursday night in Toronto at the Canadian Sovereign Awards the 6-year-old gelding collected three trophies, including the coveted Horse of the Year Honors.

For Frank Di Giulio Jr., the majority owner of the Entourage Stable which campaigns the horse, and Canadian Hall of Fame trainer Bob Tiller, it capped off an unbelievable season, something straight out of a fantasy. Pink Lloyd did not begin racing until his 4-year-old season because of numerous issues.

“The old saying goes that patience is a virtue, but in horse racing patience is a necessity because horses will make you wait, and it was never more true than with this horse,” Di Giulio told the crowd. “He had problem after problem and setback after setback. I never looked forward to a 4-year-old maiden’s first race more than this horse. His story is something a fiction novel may be...

The “people’s horse” is no longer just a concept.

A filly by California Chrome (Lucky Pulpit) out of Colerful Bride (Munnings) was born Wednesday evening at Taylor Made Farm, the biggest step to date in bringing journalist Geoffrey Gray’s innovative concept to life.

Gray is the founder of True.Ink, an interactive magazine devoted to adventure stories. True doesn’t want its readers to simply read the story but to experience it. True’s readers, or members, as Gray calls them, get to go well beyond the traditional printed page. When the on-line, interactive magazine covers something like a search for buried treasure in Mexico, the readers are invited to physically come along on the treasure hunt.

Gray got the idea to involve horse racing as part of True’s menu after a chance encounter with handicapper Michael (The Wizard) Kipness at a grocery store checkout line in 2015 in Saratoga. Kipness told Gray the story of a claimer he owned and the journalist was...
