Juddmonte's Distaff Win by Idiomatic Helps Curlin Equal his Own Breeders' Cup Record

In 2022, Hill 'n' Dale's super sire Curlin got a record-setting three winners on Saturday's Breeders' Cup card. In 2023, the remarkable sire equaled that as Juddmonte homebred Idiomatic (Curlin--Lockdown, by First Defence) gave her sire a hard-fought victory in the GI Breeders' Cup Distaff sandwiched between the encore wins by Cody's Wish in the GI Dirt Mile earlier on the card and Elite Power later in the GI Sprint. Idiomatic, who has had a stellar year with eight wins from nine starts, has almost certainly sewn up the Eclipse...

Well-Stocked for Keeneland September, There is Nothing Random about Cove Springs' Success

Richard and Connie Snyder moved their commercial breeding operation from New Mexico to Kentucky nine years ago with the aim of competing at the highest levels of the game. The Snyders' Cove Springs Farm seems to have that goal well in its grasp after a memorable August which saw the operation represented by its first Grade I winner when Randomized (Nyquist) captured the GI Alabama S. and by a high-water mark in the sales ring when a colt by Not This Time brought $725,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale. Cove...

Nyquist's Randomized Goes Wire-to-Wire in Alabama

When Joel Rosario won his first GI Alabama S. back in 2010, he had to come from the tail of the field on Blind Luck (Pollard's Vision) in a race run at a crawl and culminating in a pulsating, driving finish with an upstart filly named Havre de Grace (Saint Liam). Leaving little to chance in pursuit of a second victory in the meet's premier race for the sophomore filly set, the Dominican native kicked Klaravich Stables' Randomized (Nyquist) straight into the lead from a wide alley Saturday afternoon and...

Randomized Collects First Stakes Victory In Wilton S.

After breaking her maiden by 5 1/2 lengths Mar. 31 at Aqueduct, Randomized (Nyquist) was last seen running sixth June 9 in the GI Acorn S. behind GI Kentucky Oaks heroine Pretty Mischievous (Into Mischief). Installed here as the 13-10 second favorite to her stablemate Accede (Into Mischief), the bay filly broke alertly from the outside post, carved out a half-mile in :47.49 and off the final turn, the $420,000 Keeneland September Yearling purchase dug down and found the wire by 1 1/2 lengths over Just Katherine (Justify) to collect...

Klaravich's Randomized In Order At Aqueduct

1st-Aqueduct, $80,000, Msw, 3-31, 3yo/up, f/m, 1m, 1:36.48, ft, 5 1/2 lengths. RANDOMIZED (f, 3, Nyquist--French Passport, by Elusive Quality), last seen at Saratoga July 24 when she was third sprinting on debut behind Kaling (Practical Joke), made her presence felt from the start at Aqueduct when the 3-2 second choice powered confidently to the front as she was stalked by favorite Gifted (Tapit). As the pair began to separate themselves from the rest of the field, they briefly dueled around the far turn, but it was Randomized who was...
