Walnut Green Grads run one two in Penn National’s Wonders Delight Stakes

Dan Ryan’s Quantum Miss, bred raised and broken right here at Walnut Green, captured May 27th’s Wonders Delight Stakes at Penn National by an astounding twelve lengths. She stomped the timer in 1:08.63, which is a new track record at Penn National Racecourse. Finishing second was another Walnut Green Miss, the Harris Family’s Ann’s Smart Dancer. She, like Quantum Miss, was born bred raised and broken at Walnut Green, came in second in her third lifetime start and stakes debut.

Indian Legend was purchased by Walnut Green for the Farrar’s at the 2009 Calder Select two year old in training sale for a mere $15,000. Her earnings stand in excess of $280,000. http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/63297/indian-legend-nips-tar-heel-mom-in-my-juliet ...

SHE DID IT!

Plum Pretty stalked the pace, collared the leader turning for home, drew off and gamely held St. John’s River to the wire in the 137th running of the $1 Million Kentucky Oaks. Plum Pretty was bred, foaled and raised right here at Walnut Green for our clients Vince and Denis Curran of DDS Stables and our friends from New Jersey, Silent Indy Stables. On behalf of all of us here at Walnut Green, we wish to congratulate owner John Fort, trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Martin Garcia. Plum pretty has now started five times with three victories and two thirds, and has amassed earnings of $761,200. Her mom, Liszy, is here with us at Walnut Green. Her 2010 Dixie Union filly is slated for Saratoga this summer, there is a lovely Ghostzapper filly at her side, and is being bred back to 2010’s Three Year Old Champion, Lookin At Lucky.
