Get Stormy, who skipped the Grade 2 Fourstardave after a small bump was discovered on the edge of his right front tendon on Thursday, appears to be OK and might even defend his title in the Grade 2 Bernard Baruch Handicap on August 26.   “We scanned him again and everything looks clean,” said t...Read More
It’s been nineteen months since New York-bred turf stalwart Banrock has visited the winner’s circle, but trainer Tom Bush hopes the 8-year-old gelding’s fortunes will shift Sunday afternoon at Belmont Park as he faces seven others in the 33rd running of the $100,000 Kingston. Race 9 on Belmont’s 10...Read More

Notably absent from Saturday’s Mohawk field is Nyala Farm’s 7-year-old turf veteran Banrock, who has competed in the race each of the last three years, winning it for the first time in 2009 as part of his sweep of all four turf route stakes for New York-breds on the NYRA circuit that year.   S...Read More

Cole, a race he won in both 2008 and 2009.   “He’s back in his stall and he seems fine,” said trainer Tom Bush. “He’s eating again a...Read More
It was a Straight Story indeed Thursday afternoon at Saratoga Race Course, as the even-money favorite took the 31st running of the $100,000 West Point for New York-breds.   Although he stumbled slightly out of the gate, Straight Story went right after pacesetter Spa City Fever, who led the fiel...Read More
  • medlocke · I'm glad to see this colt back in the winner's circle. I like a good front running colt that has the ability to carry the field wire to wire. Straight Story is one of those kind's of colts. Nine times out of ten, he is the pace in the race. I thought he ran well in the 2010 United Nations Handicap. Going at it up front with Take The Points. Only to see them both cut down by an amazing late kick by France's Chinchon. · 1337 days ago ·
