Animal Instinct breaks his maiden at Gulfstream

West Point Thoroughbreds’ 4-year-old gelding, ANIMAL INSTINCT by Leroidesanimaux {Brz}, sat out his 3-year-old year, but made up for it today at Gulfstream with an impressive maiden score. He sailed to the lead in the shadow of the wire going 9 furlongs. In mid-stretch he had a big job to do to overtake the leader, but he rallied strongly for the win. He was bred by Anthony Robinson (FL) and is trained by Graham Motion.

Clair de Lune breaks her maiden at Aqueduct

The cleverly named three-year-old filly CLAIR DE LUNE, by Malibu Moon, broke her maiden at Aqueduct in her second start. She wired the field going a mile while in hand. Watch for this one. She is owned by Tracy Farm and trained by Chad Brown. Her breeders are Julie Berta, Bob Horton, Rae Horton & Charles Middleton.
