5/21/16 - Exaggerator, great-grandson of Seattle Slew, Wins the Preakness

Three-year-old EXAGERRATOR (Curlin), winner of the Santa Anita Derby (G1) earlier this year, added to his resume with a fantastic run in the 141st Preakness Stakes (G1) over a sloppy Pimlico main track on May 21.

Breaking nicely from the number five hole, Exaggerator and jockey Kent Desormeaux allowed the early speed runners to clear them before diving inside to settle into an easy pace along the rail. Saving ground off the pace, the dark bay/brown colt increased his tempo down the backstretch to gain on the leaders setting a fast pace, and he had moved into contention as the field approached the final turn.

5/6/16 - Cathryn Sophia Earns Oaks Lilies

Before a record Kentucky Oaks (G1) day crowd, CATHRYN SOPHIA (Street Boss) won the day's signature event while leading two other Seattle Slew-related fillies across the wire for a fantastic trifecta.

A full field of 14 fillies lined up for the $1 million Kentucky Oaks. Cathryn Sophia, who was coming off the first loss of her career, broke well and then settled into a stalking position in fourth behind the pacesetters. She maintained her position down the backstretch and then launched her bid in the final turn. Sweeping into the stretch four-wide, the bay filly would not be denied as she charged to the front and re... [more]

11/1/15 - Runhappy, Mongolian Saturday Represent Slew at Breeders' Cup

Three-year-old RUNHAPPY (Super Saver) set a new track record at Keeneland on Oct. 31 when he captured the $1.5 million Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1) by three-quarters-of-a-length. The bay colt raced just off the pace before closing furiously down the stretch to stop the clock in 1:08 2/5 for six furlongs over the fast main track.

From the first crop of Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Super Saver (Maria's Mon), who is out of Supercharger (A.P. Indy), Runhappy has now won three graded tests this season: the King's Bishop Sakes (G1) at Saratoga, which he won in stakes record time, and the Phoenix Stakes (G3) during Keeneland'... [more]
