Inalattetrouble Update

Upon further review and evaluation of Dr. Wes Sutter’s report on Inalattetrouble and discussions with both MRH resident veterinarian Dr. Jeffrey Berk and our partners at Spendthrift Farm, we have unanimously agreed that it would be best to no longer pursue a racing career for the filly with hopes that she can do her contributing to the industry as a broodmare. Accordingly, we have entered Inalattetrouble in the Fasig Tipton Digital Sale which runs from May 12-17th. Inalattetrouble has been catalogued as Hip 5 in the sale and final bids will close on the 17th. You can view a sale’s video of her here.

Unfortunately, a few factors worked against us in the decision to offer Inalattetrouble as an open filly (not in foal). First, we are at the backend of the breeding season and with the filly’s modest pedigree and no race record, getting her in foal would not add much value at all. Furthermore, by leaving her open, potential buyers have the opportunity to wait until next year and get Inalattetrouble on an early cycle for future breeding seasons, something that could be more attractive at this stage.

The Inalattetrouble series operates under a deferred debt arrangement where no training and care costs were raised as part of the initial offering. Instead, MRH partners portion of those expenses will be paid off with final sales proceeds. If the deferred debt exceeds the final sales price, the remaining balance will be forgiven. If the final sales price exceeds the deferred debt, the balance after the debt is repaid will be paid out pro-rata between MRH and Spendthrift Farm.

The deferred debt owed to Spendthrift Farm as of March 31, 2022 was $19,734.

After the sale is complete we will report back with the final sales amount and what it means for the closure of the Inalattetrouble series.

Above Suspicion Update

Above Suspicion has been doing very well since receiving her treatments. At the moment she remains on a daily gallop routine.

 

While no workout schedule has been put into place yet, if all continues to go well, we would expect that she would be ready to breeze sometime next week.

A Mo Reay Update

A Mo Reay has been nominated to the $100,000 Hilltop Stakes at Pimlico on Preakness Day, Saturday, May 21st. Todd Pletcher said it is unlikely that we will see A Mo Reay make her next start here, but with a free nomination it keeps our options open. There are 32 fillies nominated in total.

Sixtythreecaliber Workout

Sixtythreecaliber went a half-mile over the Horseshoe Indianapolis track this morning. Working on the inside of company, the duo covered the ground in 48.80 seconds. Trainer Tom Amoss was there for the work and reported that she is still developing and growing into her body. She has a very long and lean body type.

Man Among Men Update

Man Among Men came up with an abscess under his jaw over the weekend which has set him back a few days. The abscess did pop but did not fully drain initially. With the abscess came a minor temperature of 101, which is not unexpected when treating an infection. The barn has been treating Man Among Men accordingly and the abscess appears to be fully drained now. Pending all continues well it should only be a few days before he returns back to the track.

Frosted Oats Workout

Frosted Oats breezed five furlongs just as the track opened this morning in company with stablemate Sweetened. Breezing in the cover of darkness on the main track at Belmont Park, the Bill Mott-trained duo stopped the clock in 1:00.82. Assistant trainer Leana Willaford thought this was a solid work by Frosted Oats and said “we’re getting there, we’re close, just not ready yet” when asked when we might see Frosted Oats enter the starting gate again. Leana added that she was pleased with the 3-year-old Frosted filly and said she continues to do everything the right way, just as she did before her injury.

Provocateur Workout

Provocateur had his final breeze this morning ahead of the upcoming Gold Fever Stakes on Sunday May 15th. Breezing a half mile on the inside of stablemate Front Line Dancer, Provocateur stopped the clock in 49.08 seconds. With no urging from his rider, Provocateur drew away from his workmate with ease, something assistant trainer Byron Hughes was happy to see going into a race. Entries for the Gold Fever will be taken on Thursday.
