Racing Report
Recent Activity:
It was an exciting month for Starlight Racing as two of our freshmen won their first races! Candy Kitty broke her maiden at Saratoga on August 18th. She broke sharply from the gate and won by an impressive 2 1/4 lengths.  Intense Holiday followed suit at Monmouth on August 31st. He also broke sharply from the gate and, under mild hand urging, coasted to a 3 1/2 length, wire-to-wire win. He is now stabled at Belmont Park. We look forward to watching them race again and will post updates on their next starts on our website
