shesacurlinmytoes (2011 f. o/o Cafe Concerto) broke her maiden in a MC 1/3 at Golden Gates (race 6)

also

Top Billing (2011 c. o/o Parade Queen) ran a good second in a competitive AOC at Gulfstream 1/3 (race 9). He was trying to close into a slow pace and was pinched in the stretch and still only lost by a neck to Commissioner.

I was able to go to Aiken this past Friday to see Palace Malice before he leaves for Florida. Unfortunately it was freezing that morning and the track was frozen so he didn't train. But I was able to meet him and get some pictures. Everyone at Dogwood is very nice and they were great with fans. They felt bad because he wasn't training so they let him out into the round pen later in the morning after it had thawed some. He is a character, loved to roll and play around. I'm pretty sure he knows when the cameras are around because he starts posing. Luckily we live in NC so we were able to make a day trip out of it. We were also able to meet Cot and Frances Campbell and they are both very nice. It was a great trip and I figured I would share some pictures.

He loves his peppermints! https://scontent-a-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/hph ... 9105_n.jpg

Enjoying a good roll https://scontent-a-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/hph ... 8695_n.jpg

I think he was impersonating Zenyatta https://scontent-a-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/hph ... 0394_n.jpg

Miss Frost Stakes placed Curlin filly that Dogwood owns https://scontent-b-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/hph ... 9442_n.jpg

They also have a 2yr old filly, Curolina. She isnt officially named yet, so Im not sure who her dam is, but I fell in love with her. https://scontent-a-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/hph ... 6571_n.jpg

Lovely pictures, thank you for sharing them! They all look very friendly. Is there a general concensus on the temperments of Curlin's foals?
Soylent green is....tasty!!!

Her name is Curalina.
Thanks! I used the spelling the guy told me. I was wondering who she was out of.

Thank You!

Palace Malice was very mouthy and full of energy. He would bite you in a second but wasn't mean, just mouthy and playful. He is also a stallion who is daily fed peppermints, and I think he was also a bit keyed up since he didn't get to train and work out some of that energy.

They said Miss Frost came back to them really mean but she has mellowed out since being in Aiken. She didn't seem to bad to me, about what I would expect from a Thoroughbred who is still racing. They said she will have a late start this year and will head back up to NY in the spring.

Curalina was very sweet. She let me pet her and would even rest her head on my shoulder. I'm not sure if that is just her temperament or if she will get a bit more high strung as her training gets more advanced. Her temperament seemed about the same as my Spotted Saddle.They said they just had all their 2 year olds x-rayed and only one was developed enough to really start training.

Based on the three that I met they all seemed well mannered with pretty even temperaments, But 3 out of hundreds isn't a great sample. They all also seemed smaller than I though they would be. But, I am used to looking at Quarter Horses and Draft horses, haha.

Jay Eye See won again by 2 1/2 lengths in an AOC at Calder yesterday ( race 7) it was off the turf.

Ride on Curlin also won an allowance by 2 1/2 lengths at Oaklawn race 6. I believe he is going to be pointed to the Southwest Stakes on 2/17 next.

Texas Ryano (2011 c. o/o Blending Element) broke his maiden quite impressively in his first start today in a MSW at SA. Had to overcome a lot to win.

Holy cow! That's the most powerful run I've seen in a long time. How he still had energy left to come from last to first after all the bumping and stopping he endured is amazing. Can't wait to see what they have planned for him.

I agree. The beginning of the far turn it looks like he clips heels, then he gets blocked through half the stretch. His acceleration is amazing, and it was his first start. I am thoroughly impressed.

Blue Violet (2010 f. o/o Stakes Winner Gasia) won her 2014 debut in an Allowance at FG today.

Curlin has several runners coming up on the 25th:

Jay Eye See is coming off a win in an AOC to run in the Thrillin Discovery Handicap at Calder (race 8)

Bold Curlin is also coming off a win in an AOC and is entered in the Native Dancer Stakes at Laurel (race 7)

Stakes winner Flash Forward is coming off a 6th place finish in the G3 Comely Stakes to run in the Ladies Handicap at Aqueduct (race 8)

Top Billing is coming off a tough second in an AOC to Commissioner to run again in an AOC at Gulfstream (race 4)


Also Eclipse Thoroughbreds, who has joined with Dogwood, posted a picture of Curalina working in company at Aiken. (She is on the left). I love this filly and she should be going to Pletcher this summer to start her career.

Wow! First time I saw this and I am super impressed. Had I not already known he had won, I would have checked him as finished a few times during that race. Lovely! Into the VS he goes!
