Pennsylvania Derby Day at Parx

Monomoy Girl rules in Saratoga

Hand over the Eclipse Award for champion 3-year-old filly because Monomoy Girl is better than everyone in the division. She proved it again in Sunday's Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks, leading throughout and winning by 3 lengths. Photographer Tod Marks dishes out some all-star photos.

The Aiken Trials

One of the great Thoroughbred traditions of the south, the Aiken Trials, happen for the 76th time March 17 and offer a great harbinger of spring, a chance to see some world-class Thoroughbreds in action and – at its most simple – a great day out. Photographer Barry Bornstein is a regular and provided some images from the 2017 races. Enjoy. 

A visit to Country Life Farm

Maryland's oldest Thoroughbred farm, Country Life Farm, hosted its open house Jan. 20 and plenty of owners/breeders showed up to meet Divining Rod, Mosler, Friesan Fire, Freedom Child and Super Ninety Nine. Photographer Maggie Kimmitt made sure she focused in on the boys – and some new foals. 

A visit to Northview PA

It's breeding season – foals are being born, mares are waiting (some patiently) for their big days and stallions are being shown to breeders. Northview Stallion Station's Pennsylvania division hosted an open house Jan. 14. Photographer Maggie Kimmitt got a look at the stallions on a bitter cold day.

A visit to Bonita Farm

Venerable Thoroughbred operation Bonita Farm is back in the stallion game with the addition of Dortmund, Kobe's Back and Alliance for the 2018 breeding season. The Maryland farm showcased the stallions at a Jan. 13 open house for breeders. Photographer Maggie Kimmitt met the stallions.

Remembering Better Talk Now

Trainer Graham Motion's 18-year-old gelding, who competed for parts of nine seasons while winning 14 of 51 starts and earning $4.3 million, was euthanized Tuesday due to complications from colic. Owned by Bushwood Stable, the turf warrior had been retired with honors at Fair Hill Training Center since his racing career ended in 2009. Photographer Tod Marks takes a look back.
