Dr. Bill McGuire joins Sequel New York as Assistant Manager

Becky Thomas is pleased to announce that Dr. Bill McGuire will join Sequel New York as the Assistant Manager.

 

Dr. Bill McGuire comes to us from Arkansas State University where he was an instructor in Animal Science,” said Becky Thomas. “Not only does he have a PHD in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences and a Masters in Reproductive Physiology, he is a very skilled horseman. We are very lucky and happy to have him on the team along side Farm Manager Teri Brown.”

 

Dr. McGuire began at Cloud County Community College in Concordia, Kansas where he taught Animal Science classes, Anatomy and Physiology, and implemented as well as instructed the college’s equine program. He also started the college’s rodeo team, equestrian team, and coached the horse judging team to victories in national contests. After 15 years in this position, Dr. McGuire accepted a job with New Mexico State University and served as a Northern New Mexico Horse Specialist among many other roles. He established and directed the Thoroughbred breeding program at Arkansas State University where his students acquired hands on experience in foaling, breeding, and management.

 

“I am very excited to be working with such a great team of individuals at such a first class farm,” said Dr. McGuire, “While I will definitely miss my students, the opportunities for them to complete internships at Sequel will be an unequaled learning experience.”

 

Sequel Stallions New York is a perennial leading breeder in New York with the strongest stallion roster in the state. Dr. McGuire will manage NY’s Leading Sire FREUD who has been called the cornerstone of the NY Breeding Program. Also standing at the sprawling 223-acre farm and state of the art facility are popular young sires DESTIN, LAOBAN, THE LIEUTENANT and UNION JACKSON, as well as MISSION IMPAZIBLE who has led every crop he’s had of racing age.

Mission Impazible 3YO Filly Espresso Shot Wins Big A’s $257,375 Busher for 2nd Straight Stakes Tally

By Rab Hagin

Ten weeks after scoring her first stakes victory in Aqueduct’s $100,600 East View at a mile in the mud, ESPRESSO SHOT ($262,975) won Aqueduct’s listed $257,375 Busher Stakes for nine open 3-year-old fillies going a mile on fast dirt, as the MISSION IMPAZIBLE sophomore sensation registered an impressive last-to-first victory. The March 9 win earned her 50 points towards qualifying for Churchill Downs’ Grade 1 $1.25-million Longines Kentucky Oaks on May 3, which the managing partner for one of Espresso Shot’s owners, Daniel Zanatta of NY Final Furlong Racing Stable, said was a definite goal.

“It’s pretty special,” enthused Zanatta. “My dream is to win the Kentucky Oaks with a New York-bred filly, and we’re on our way. We were all in the winner’s circle jumping up and down, and to have her come wide and be six or seven lengths off of it, it was the best way to win a stakes race.”

Facing two other Aqueduct stakes winners – one a graded winner – plus a Laurel stakes winner and an unbeaten favorite among her eight rivals, Espresso Shot relied on her relentless late run, rallying widest of all out of the turn and overtaking her highly-touted competitors in the second half-mile. It was her third victory in six starts, which includes a runner-up effort in a six-furlong Aqueduct stakes in November and a placing on Saratoga turf in her 2-year-old debut. In addition to NY Final Furlong Racing Stable, Espresso Shot’s other owners are Maspeth Stables and Parkland Thoroughbreds.

Winning jockey Eric Cancel, who has been on board for Espresso Shot’s last three starts, had been upbeat going into the Busher: “I was very confident,” revealed Cancel. “She’s a very talented filly.”

Espresso Shot’s win boosted Mission Impazible’s progeny earnings to over $5.6-million from three crops to race, with his second crop out-earning his first (although Mission Impazible was the Northeast’s leading first-crop sire of 2016), and his third crop (with Espresso Shot) appearing better than his second.

Other recent winners to represent Mission Impazible at Aqueduct were his sons ROGUE NATION on February 17 and BOURBON DID IT on February 1 – both favorites. Rogue Nation, who races for E.V. Racing Stable and trainer Rudy R. Rodriguez, scored his third Aqueduct victory at three different distances in six starts, swinging four-wide to tally at a mile. Bourbon Did It, who races for Michael Dubb, Bethlehem Stables LLC, Michael Imperio and David Simon, broke his maiden by almost two lengths drawing away at odds-on among eight going six furlongs.

Mission Impazible’s other decisively-winning sons in 2019 are newly-minted 3-year-old WHO’S DRIVING, who scored his second open-margin victory in his third start by winning his 2019 debut on January 14 at Parx Racing, and CUMBER, who in three starts at Mahoning Valley in Ohio is unbeaten in 2019. Who’s Driving, racing for new owners Pat and Ron Scorese, was the youngest (foaled April 29, 2016) in his six-furlong contest and stumbled while breaking from the outside post but still beat the odds-on runner-up by more than two lengths at equal weights. Cumber, an Oklahoma-bred who had broken his maiden in 2018 at Oaklawn Park, has beaten 26 rivals while winning three races by multiple open margins totaling 12 lengths during an eight-week span. Racing at Mahoning Valley for Gerald Silver, Cumber scored by 3½ lengths going 5½ furlongs against 10 on January 9, by 6½ lengths going six furlongs as the favored co-topweight against 11 on January 28, and by two lengths at 1-to-2 going 5½ furlongs on March 6.

Freud’s Mucha Chance (ARG) Wins Another G2 – By 4 Lengths in 1:59.10 for 2,000 Meters at Palermo

By Rab Hagin

Offspring of FREUD won or placed in three graded/group races in the two-week span of February 24 to March 9, highlighted by the four-length romp by MUCHA CHANCE in the 2,000-meter (about 1¼ miles) Group 2 Clasico Otono (Autumn) in 1:59.10 at Palermo in Buenos Aires on March 9. The Argentine-bred son of Freud had scored his first Group 2 victory – also at 2,000 meters on dirt – on December 27 at La Plata, another Buenos Aires-area facility where he has held the track record for 2,000 meters on dirt (2:01.23) since December of 2017. Owned by Dap Stable, Mucha Chance in 15 starts has six wins (five on dirt, one on turf), with five seconds, two thirds, and two fourth-place finishes. He has won twice at 1,600 meters (about a mile) – breaking his maiden on turf and clocking 1:33-flat on dirt – once at 1,800 meters (about 1 1/8 miles, in 1:47.62), and three times at 2,000 meters, where he appears to reign supreme.

Facing 10 rivals in the Clasico Otono, Mucha Chance sprinted immediately to the front on his own accord and led by multiple-length margins to mid-stretch, where he was briefly challenged before pulling away decisively in the final furlong. He ran his second, third, and fourth 400-meter (about a quarter-mile) splits in faster times than his first, reaching the 1,600-meter mark in 1:34.76.

Like Freud’s Grade/Group 1 dirt winners SHARP AZTECA ($2,406,740), GIANT RYAN, ALEX ROSSI (ARG), and SUMMER LOVE (ARG) and turf champion ZEIDE ISAAC and turf millionaire LUBASH ($1,515,139), Mucha Chance was produced from a mare that is a descendant of Hail to Reason.

Argentine-bred Freud turf filly INTRATABLE FREUD placed third among eight in another Group 2 event at Palermo, the Clasico Miguel Angel and Tomas Juarez Celman at 1,600 meters on wet turf on February 24. Owned by Los Cozacos Stable, Intratable Freud has won twice on firm turf at 1,600 meters at San Isidro (another Buenos Aires-area facility), where in 2017 she was a Group 2 runner-up among eight on wet turf after winning first-out by 3½ lengths on wet dirt.

In North America on March 9, Freud’s son BAVARO ($337,805) placed third among seven in his graded stakes debut, Aqueduct’s six-furlong Tom Fool Handicap, beating the favorite and 2018 Tom Fool winner in an event clocked in a stakes record 1:08.77. Owned by All In The Family Racing, multiple stakes winner Bavaro has won twice at Aqueduct in 2019, including the $103,600 Hollie Hughes Stakes on February 18.

Winning on La Plata dirt on March 5 was another Argentine-bred son of Freud, SOSEGADO, who was favored from the outside post among seven at 1,000 meters (about five furlongs) and surged ahead at the wire. Owned by Pachu Stable, Sosegado also had won at 1,000 meters on La Plata dirt in September.

March-winning daughters of Freud in North America are I’M LISTENING and SARDONYX, who scored on Gulfstream Park turf and Penn National dirt, respectively, on March 1, and JAZZY JUDER, who tallied on Laurel Park dirt on March 8. I’m Listening, who has won on dirt and turf for trainer and part owner Mary Eppler (Mary E. Eppler Racing Stable, Inc.) and for co-breeder George L. Schwartz and part owner Frederic N. Ornitz, beat nine rivals in her first start at a mile. Sardonyx broke her maiden “easily” by 11½ lengths at nearly 1-to-2 against nine rivals going six furlongs despite breaking from the ninth post for Class Personified Stable in her 2019 debut. Jazzy Juder, who has won at three different distances and by big margins against large fields on Belmont turf and Laurel dirt, scored her latest victory by 2½ lengths at nearly even money despite getting bumped at the start while going six furlongs for Old Coach Farm.

WHY FREUD RANKS AS ONE OF THE MOST VERSATILE SIRES EVER TO STAND IN NORTH AMERICA:

Through March 9, 2019, FREUD has sired 66 stakes winners that have won 165 events identified as "stakes" – including graded races on dirt, turf, synthetic. These 165 stakes victories have occurred at 31 tracks in four countries and one commonwealth in two hemispheres, ranging from five furlongs to 1½ miles. By surface, 80 have been on dirt, 79 on turf, 6 on synthetic. By age, 23 have been won by 2-year-olds, 52 by 3-year-olds, 31 by 4-year-olds, 39 by 5-year-olds, 8 by 6-year-olds, 8 by 7-year-olds, 3 by an 8-year-old, one by a 9-year-old. On NYRA's 9 racing strips, 18 of these wins have been on Belmont dirt, 15 on Belmont outer turf, 15 on Belmont inner turf, 10 on Saratoga inner turf, 10 on Aqueduct outer dirt, 6 on Aqueduct's (late) inner dirt, 4 on Saratoga dirt, 4 on Saratoga outer turf, 2 on Aqueduct turf. Freud is the only sire of stakes winners on all 9 NYRA courses.

Destin Early Mares Are In Foal

DESTIN, G2 track record setting son of Giant’s Causeway has now had the first four mares bred confirmed in foal.

We are so excited about the popularity of DESTIN in his first year and couldn’t be happier that he is proficient in his new job. He has great libido and is getting the job done on some very nice mares,” said Becky Thomas of Sequel New York.

A full brother to Grade 1 stakes winning sire CREATIVE CAUSE, DESTIN set a new track record in the G2 Tampa Bay Derby winning by a length going 1:42 4/5 in the 1 1/16 mile KY Derby Prep Race defeating Outwork and Brody’s Cause. Three months later he was defeated a nose by Creator in the classic G1 Belmont Stakes. Destin retires with 5 wins, 2 seconds and 2 thirds in 15 starts with earnings of $947,800.

The 5-Year-Old son of champion sire GIANT’S CAUSEWAY is out of Grade 1 Millionaire, DREAM OF SUMMER who beat ASHADO in the G1 Apple Blossom. She is a multiple graded-stakes winning, graded-stakes producing mare with over $2.3 Million in progeny earnings. Destin is also full brother to graded stakes winning filly VEXATIOUS, as well as half-brother to black type placed producer, TABOO.

DESTIN stands at Sequel New York for Gainesway Farm, Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, Twin Creeks Farm and Sequel New York for a fee of $6,500 LFSN.

First Foal by Multiple Graded Stakes Winner UNION JACKSON is a Colt

Bred by the Mr. Amore Stables of Ron Lombardi, Union Jackson’s first foal, a flashy bay colt out of the Rockport Harbor mare Hoboken Honey, was born at Sequel New York on January 13.

 

A multiple graded stakes winning owner of more than $10M, Mr. Amore Stables has enjoyed much success lately having campaigned G1 Champagne winner FIRENZE FIRE as well as Breeders Cup G1 placed TIGHTEND TOUCHDOWN in addition to many others.

 

Hoboken Honey is out of a half-sister to DAIWA BANDIT, a multiple stakes winner in Japan of over $1.4M. She is from the immediate family of grade 3 stakes winners ADVANCING STAR ($794,470, stakes producer) and DARBY FAIR ($337,374, sire).

 

A son of two-time Horse Of The Year and Champion Sire CURLIN, out of G1 Stakes Winner HOT DIXIE CHICK, half-sister to G1 KY Derby Winner ALWAYS DREAMING, UNION JACKSON was bred in Kentucky by Barbara Banke's Grace Thoroughbred Holdings, campaigned by her Stonestreet Stables, and trained by Steve Asmussen.

 

Union Jackson broke his maiden by 7 3/4 lengths going six furlongs at Keeneland becoming a TDN Rising Star. He went on to win an 8 1/4-length score in the Sam Houston Sprint Cup Stakes and a victory in the Iowa Sprint Handicap, which he took while running six furlongs in 1:08.75. On the board in 9 of 11 starts, he won 6 races by over a combined 27 lengths with earnings of $273,000. 

 

Union Jackson represents the first participation in the New York breeding program for Stonestreet Stables. Stonestreet owner Barbara
Banke stated the she was "very excited to be standing Union Jackson in New York," adding that "Stonestreet very much believes in Union Jackson, and we will be strongly supporting him at stud."


"We are so excited about this first crop of UNION JACKSON and couldn’t be happier that the first one belongs to our friends at Mr. Amore Stable!" Sequel Stallion’s principal Becky Thomas said. "Ron Lombardi visited us yesterday at our annual Stallion Show, but the mare must not have wanted an audience as she waited until we had gone to have her foal. Ron is a big supporter of the New York breeding program so we are particularly thrilled that he has such a nice Union Jackson colt.”

 

The mare, Hoboken Honey, is breeding back to UNION JACKSON in 2019.
