Candy Kitty won handily in the slop at Gulfstream Park on November 30th in the $100,000 Wait A While stakes with Edgar Prado up. Please click here for Mike Welsch's DRF article on the race and to watch a recap. Also making a trip to the Winner's Circle was Ready's Legend on November 20th at Churchill Downs. Our two winners were joined by a solid effort on behalf of Intense Holiday in the G2 Remsen Stakes where he placed 4th off a slow pace and galloped out beautifully. Please check for updates on upcoming races for our runners.

Starlight Racing's Jack Wolf Honored:
Even though he prefers not to be the center of attention (and I may get in trouble for allotting him his own special box in the newsletter), we at Starlight Racing are thrilled and proud that Jack was recently awarded the 2013 Warner L. Jones Horseman of the Year by Kentucky Thoroughbred Owners.
Festivities took place on November 23rd at the Kentucky Derby Museum and many Starlight Racing partners were in attendance. Please click here for behind-the-scenes photos from the event!
In addition, please click here to read the expanded Q&A Jack did with Jennie Rees in the Courier-Journal. Congrats again Jack!
