Fab Four From September

By | Jaywalker, Latest News, Sunrise

Keeneland’s annual September Sale routinely turns out more champions and graded stakes winners than all other sales companies combined. The Centennial Farms acquisition team returns each year to pour through hundreds of horses and select those which match the Centennial ideal. Dr. Steven Carr and Paula Parsons once again succeeded at finding athletic, impressive physical individuals with pedigrees that indicate the sky’s the limit.

The group commenced with the purchase of a son from the first crop of brilliant Whitney winner Cross Traffic out of a stakes winning mare. We were able to follow that up with the addition of a colt by red-hot Into Mischief whose dam is the daughter of standout broodmare sire Unbridled’s Song and an Eclipse Award winner. Exciting freshman stallion Cairo Prince sired our third purchase, the second foal out of a dam who has already produced a winner. The final member of the quartet is by Horse of the Year and proven sire Mineshaft, out of a young daughter of world-renowned War Front.

All four colts will begin their initial training in Middleburg, Virginia, making them among the first crop eligible for the lucrative Virginia Residency Bonus Program. Centennial Farms is the only partnership whose time-tested methods will also make our partners eligible to earn these tremendous bonuses. Learn more and contact us for details on how to get involved with these exciting colts.

Securitiz Shines in Seattle Slew

By | Latest News, Securitiz

After two tough defeats at Saratoga, Securitiz put in a resolute run to become a stakes winner on opening weekend at Belmont Park! The handsome dark bay was sent off as the second choice in the Seattle Slew Stakes with new rider Manny Franco aboard. The duo dropped back to last partway through the 1 1/8-mile affair, but Franco timed their rally to a “T”. Securitiz rallied late and stuck his nose out in front.

Already stakes placed at four, Securitiz pushed his career earnings to over $260,000 with the victory. The full recap is available from NYRA.

Successful Saratoga a Wrap

By | Latest News, Malibu, Pinewood, Rocketry

Every summer, the racing world converges on Saratoga for forty days of world-class racing and one of the nation’s most prestigious yearling sales. The competition at each is unparalleled. There is no tougher meet in the country to win a race at nor anywhere tougher to snag a top-quality racing prospect. Centennial Farms was thrilled to conclude our summer with victories at each.

The star of the racing season was Rocketry, whose impressive allowance victory and solid stakes debut anchored a strong meet. His flashy victory was paired with game efforts by Securitiz and Weather Wiz to generate an 80% on the board percentage for the meet. We are incredibly proud that that consistency has followed the Centennial horses throughout the year. No other partnership has a higher percentage in 2017.

The other major victories of the meet came at the Fasig-Tipton Select Sale, where we brought home sons of young Kentucky Derby-producing sire Bodemeister and perennial standout sire Malibu Moon. We’re thrilled to offer the opportunity to invest in these two colts of limitless potential.

Rocketry draws away to a powerful victory at Saratoga beneath Jose Ortiz.
