Works, entries, and results for the Midlantic-breds nominated to the Triple Crown.  The latest:

[su_list icon=”icon: clipboard”]
  • A busy weekend is in the books for Midlantic-breds nominated to the Triple Crown.  Here’s what happened:
    • The final three-year-old stakes of the Laurel meet took place over the weekend, and while the winner of the boys’ version is a Maryland-bred, he was in this case the other
      Maryland-bred: the one not nominated to the Triple Crown.  Bridget’s Big Luvy posted a front-running score in the Private Terms to record a mild upset and his first stakes win.  His trainer, Jeremiah Englehart, made some noises after the race about the spring classics, and his connections had to decide by yesterday whether to put up $6,000 to nominate him.  The Maryland-bred who is nominated to the Triple Crown and ran in the Private Terms, Combat Diver, finished fifth of six.
    • On the girls’ side of the ledger, the Caesar’s Wish went with a single horse bred in the region, West Virginia-bred Country Mamma.  She finished fifth of seven in a race won by Grade 1 winner By the Moon.
    • Across the country, Pennsylvania-bred The Man registered his first career victory.  The son of Ecclesiastic scored easily in maiden special weight company for trainer Bob Baffert after having failed twice as the favorite.
    • Last Thursday at Laurel, Jackson P, a Maryland-bred, ran third against allowance foes.
    • Several runners appeared on the work tab, as well.  Among them were Cat Fifty Five, Saham, Stellar Wind, Defondo, and Ghost Bay.[/su_list]
