Claiming Crown: Big Day for Maker, Ramseys

Parent's Honor capped a big day for Ken and Sarah Ramsey at Gulfstream Park Dec. 1, taking the $200,000 Claiming Crown Jewel at odds of 16-1 to give the owners their fourth winner on the Souther Florida track's opening day card.

The Claiming Crown series, hosted by Gulfstream for the first time, was dominated by Ramsey-owned runners trained by Mike Maker, who eclipsed Scott Lake as the all-time leading trainer with 12 total Claiming Crown wins, three more than Lake.

Thanks to the well-supported Claiming Crown, Gulfstream set opening day records for its new facility for on-track and overall handle. Total handle was $12.2 million, up 66% from last year's opening day. On-track handle was $1.44 million, up 84% from the previous year.

The Ramseys and Maker won the $100,000 Iron Horse Stakes with Brother Bird, the $100,000 Rapid Transit Stakes with Bernie the Maestro, and the $125,000 Tiara Stakes with Starsilhouette. They just missed the $125,000 Emerald by a head with Major Marvel before Parent's Honor, a 4-year-old Elusive Quality gelding, put an exclamation point on the afternoon.

The Ramseys are fantastic at picking good claimers and turning them into winners
Gotta love Ken's enthusiasm for racing. He's a real piece of work, that also owns cell phone towers.
brown almighty, yes, $.10 is 10% of $1.00; divide the $1.00 payout by 10 to find your winnings. Bloodhorse has Gulfsteam races 1-3 from 12/1 available so far.
And speaking of Strike The Gold, does anyone know if his remains came back to the US? As a former Derby winner, seems that arrangements would be made to have him returned.
*look on the
Merhaba and karşılama! In the US, you can look are the active power rankings below--the order is highly debatable, however the horses included are among the best of their gender, age, and competitive distance. What is missing are the international runners. Certainly Orfevre (JPN), Camelot, Black Caviar (AUS), Gentildonna (JPN), Dawn Approach (IRE) are among the best. Who are the best runners in Turkey? You also have some of our damn good studs there: Dehere, Lion Heart, Yonaguska, Cuvee, Victory Gallop (CAN)... Strike The Gold passed on last year--he sired one of your best runners in Sibirli. Any news of these much Beloved stars you can pass along would be appreciated!
