And while it’s fairly straightforward four words, some miss the simplicity ...Read More

Darley Stable's Captivating Lass, a two-length maiden winner at Parx Racing on October 1, will be the lone HolidayFest representative from trainer Kiaran McLaughlin's barn as she points toward the Grade 2, $200,000 Demoiselle on Saturday. The A.P. Indy filly went wire-to-wire and covered the mile an...Read More
