Exciting sophomore Royal Realm continued his improvement with a good looking maiden victory at Belmont Park! The three-year-old has made steady progress with each career start – in fact, this victory earned him a higher Beyer figure than a highly-touted allowance race on the same card. Jimmy Jerkens and his team have done a terrific job with this colt, building on the outstanding foundation laid by Paula Parsons Training in Middleburg. We’re hopeful his wonderful partners have a lot to look forward to as he keeps learning!
Mihos returned to the winner’s circle with an impressive victory at The Big A! Trainer Jimmy Jerkens and his team did a terrific job getting this guy to top form; he matched his career high Beyer while pulling clear to a 1 1/4-length victory. We’re so grateful to the patient and supportive partners who make it all possible!

*WOW*. Rocketry’s running style and the unique nature of his preferred marathon races can leave the big guy open to some unfavorable set-ups and bad luck. Though he’d continually run well, he entered the G2 Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Stakes without a win since the race’s 2018 edition, when it contested as the G2 Marathon presented by the TAA at Churchill Downs. He ended the drought in a big, big way, with the kind of performance that leaves one speechless. We are so grateful to the phenomenal partners in the 2015 Crescent, LLC who make it all possible, Jimmy Jerkens and his staff, our team, including Paula Parsons and Dr. Carr, and tremendous Rocketry.
