Re: Hard Spun Foals

Malpais is entered for a tag in race #9 at Oaklawn Park next Friday, April 10. Hard Spun hated that track and none of his babies have done anything there.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Another star of Hard Spun's first crop of foals is Big John B . He got off to a slow start, but caught on fire in 2014 as a 5 year old. After being claimed for $50,000 on April 11. He won his next 3 at Churchill Downs, Santa Anita, and Del Mar, respectively, which prompted his new connections to ent...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Then there was Hard Not To Like 's win in the G1 Gamely Stakes at Santa Anita on May 25, 2015. This filly got around! She earned a BSF of 93 for the win. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIeBEYR5_9k And since the YouTube video goes right on to her next triumph, might as well mention Hard Not To Like ...

Video of Hard Not To Like 's win in the G1 Jenny Wiley Stakes at Keeneland on April 12, 2014. This was Hard Spun's second G1 winner that week. WIcked Strong had just won the G1 Wood Memorial a few days earlier, but we will get to that... http://site-721961.bcvp0rtal.com/detail/video/3462042945001/20...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Next up is Hard Not To Like , who, like Questing and Zo Impressive, is a member of Hard Spun's first crop of foals. Unlike them, she did her best running on the grass. At 2 in 2011 she beat males in the Cup and Saucer Stakes at Woodbine. Her next stakes win was in the G3 Marshua's River Stakes in 20...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Next is Questing 's freakishly good win in the G1 Alabama Stakes at Saratoga, Saturday, August 18, 2012. Time was 2:01.29, fastest Alabama since Go For Wand in 1990. She earned a 106 Beyer Speed Figure for the effort. She is Hard Spun's only multiple G1 winner on the dirt so far. Zo Impressive finis...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

The next logical race to share is Questing's G1 Coaching Club American Oaks at Saratoga, race #10 on July 21, 2012. Straight from an AOC to G1 competition. Easy peasy. This was a first G1 win for both her and her jockey, Irad Ortiz, Jr.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Next up is Questing . This is her allowance win on June 24, 2012, in race #1 at Belmont Park. She completed the mile in 1:34.14. This is the race that hinted at what was to come for this brilliant filly. video: https://www.nyra.com/belmont/racing/replays Luckily the replays go back to 2012...just! S...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

We may be in for a bit of a lull in action as various racetracks suspend racing. So I am going to start looking for replays of some memorable stakes wins by Hard Spun babies . I am going to start with Zo Impressive in the 2012 G1 Mother Goose Stakes . Race: Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont Park Winner...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

No big wins today, but Antoinette finished 3rd in the Fairgrounds Oaks and earned 20 points toward the Kentucky Oaks. Silver State finished 7th in the Louisiana Derby. Interesting to note that Hard Spun is the broodmare sire of the winner, Wells Bayou.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Interesting observation about Hard Not To Love. If you look at her PPs below, all her wins have come after a 2-month rest. Her only losses after a 1-month rest. Wondering if she just needs that extra time to recoup, considering she is confronting anxiety in addition to the race itself. May take more...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Hard Not To Love finished 2nd in the Beholder Mile today. She had PP1 and they sent her rather than dropping back. Didn't work out. She went pretty fast early. Perhaps too fast.
