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.

Greenshoe  2, Q1:55.0M broke at the start, got back on gait, made an explosive move heading to three-quarters and won a division of the colt and gelding trot in 1:56.2. The son of Father Patrick was driven by Brian Sears.
