Donegal Racing and Calumet Farm's grade 1 winner Keen Ice completed his major preparations for the Aug. 5 $1.2 million Whitney Stakes (G1) at Saratoga Race Course with a half-mile work July 29.

The recent three-length winner of the Suburban Stakes (G2) July 8 at Belmont Park, Keen Ice took to the main track early Saturday in company with graded-stakes placed stablemate Patch, finishing just ahead of his workmate to cover the distance in :49.09 and galloped out strongly past the wire.

Dear Partners and Friends, 
AIFE (Race 3) and FAHAN MURA (Race 10) go to the races here at Saratoga on Thursday. Both are training well and are aggressively placed, though AIFE'S race came up stronger than expected with a Chad Brown contender.
If you would like tickets for the races on Thursday please let me know TODAY and we will make it happen.

Hi Team,
I hope this email finds everyone well. What a summer the stable is in the midst of having. Just taking a quick glance at the partnership/syndicate standings, it would appear that Donegal is leading the way at the halfway point in terms of earnings. I say "appear" because other partnerships look like they are getting credit for entire earnings of horses that have won major races, even though they own a minority share. The next month won't be slowing down as several members of the stable will be running in stakes around the country and some of the two year olds will be on the periapsis of starts as well.

Dear Partners and Friends,

I learned from Bob Baffert this a.m. that IRISH FREEDOM has gone back to the track as of yesterday! IRISH developed a serious infection immediately following the Santa Anita Derby (undoubtedly coming down with it during the Derby) and it took a long while to get his blood counts back to normal.

Donegal Racing's Arklow was originally slated to aim at the Kentucky Derby on the dirt, but after he was unsuccessful there, trainer Brad Cox switched him over to the turf. The 3-year-old son of Arch scored a 3 1/2-length maiden victory on the lawn at Keeneland, and confirmed that grass presence with a win on the Kentucky Derby undercard in the G2 American Turf Stakes.

Dear Partners and Friends,

It's true, Donegal is truly a global operation this week.

First a quick look back:

DONEGAL MOON made a very solid return to the races and Todd Pletcher was quite happy with him. 86 Beyer sprinting was very encouraging.

Dear Partners and Friends,

Action indeed.


Below is a video of ICE's breeze yesterday when he dusted Neolithic, the third place finisher in the Pegasus. Words aren't really needed to confirm what the video/bullet shows you.

Hi Team,

I hope this email finds everyone well. The month of March will continue to be a busy one for the stable members with starts to be made from coast to coast and several making starts in stakes or preps for future stakes. Let's get to it:
