Father (Patrick)'s Day At The Big M
It's the start of June. Trotters are trotting in 1:55, pacers are faster than 1:54. And these are just the two-year-olds in their first ever charted lines. In the 2018 edition of Breakfast With The Babies at the Meadowlands, Libfeld Katz graduate, Whispering Oaks becomes the very first winner for first-crop sire Father Patrick. She led all the way, closing out her 1:58 mile with a :29 final quarter and won well within herself.Congratulations to owners Brixton Medical, Herb Liverman and RAW Equine, Inc. Whispering Oaks was purchased at the Lexington Selected Yearling Sale last fall from breeders Marvin Katz, Al Libfeld and Sam Goldband.
June 16 2018 - The Meadowlands
It turned out to be Father Patrick day as that first crop sire had five winners in the seven trotting races, an impressive showing indeed.
Trotting fillies opened the card with Whispering Oaks a 1:57.3 win, the second in a many appearances for the imposing Father Patrick Vintage Oaks filly. Jimmy Takter trains the winner for Brixton Medical, Herb Liverman and RAW Equine.
Special Honor - Honor Thy Daughter-- by, guess who, Father Patrick -- took the third for Andy Miller in 1:58.1. She converted a perfect trip, tracking Given (Gingras) until headstretch then forged past that stubborn rival as they neared the wire. Brittany Farms, Marvin Katz and Al Libfeld bred and own Special Honor.
Owned by Courant Inc. Greenshoe from Designed To Be was pretty fresh scoring and anxious behind the gate but Sears was able to soothe him away with the good colt Dont Letem (Gingras) landing on his back. Moderate fractions ensued with no real trotting done until midway through the stretch when Gingras moved Dont Letem out to challenge and made a bit ground but couldn't threaten the winner.
