Stable Update from Jerry Crawford
Dear Partners and Friends,
Below please find a full stable update (4/25/2023).
BRAD COX TRAINEES
DONEGAL ARROW: We thought this colt had Derby trail potential but then he aggravated a tendon sheath. He is in 30 day turnout.
DONEGAL DANNY: Will begin his new career as a jumper for Donegal Partner, Danny Kelly.
READY TO PURRFORM: We are going to geld this colt and turn him out for vacation in hopes he returns to his form from last summer.
DONEGAL FREEDOM: Will go to Brad Cox in Kentucky soon.
QUALITY QB: has a beautiful stride and will run a long ways.
DANE NOEL TRAINEES
HYPERBOLIST: Just finished second in a $100,000 stakes. Dane has done a great job with this 4 year old. He is in good shape and has two firsts and a second in his last three races.
FAHAN: This five year old won his last two races but then needed to be turned out. He should be back at the races soon as his last workout was a bullet 1/51.
TIZ DONEGAL, DONEGAL MISCHIEF, AND DONEGAL FACTOR: Preparing for a return to the races with Dane in Louisiana.
KNOT THE ONE: Will race on this coming Friday, April 28.
DONEGAL SURGES: Is turned out until May 10 when we will scan him again.
TODD PLETCHER TRAINEES
DONEGAL FOREVER: Could turn out to be the best 3 and up horse we own. Barry and I both love him. He goes to Todd and will make his first start at Belmont prior to the Saratoga meet.
THE DONEGAL CLAN: Is with Nick Esler in Ocala and will move to Todd Pletcher around May 10. Esler has very high hopes for this colt.
BIT O'DONEGAL: Will go to Todd Pletcher around May 10. He is growing into himself and is a smooth mover.
JOSEPH O'BRIEN TRAINEES
HOTROCKET: Is in Ireland and finished fourth last out.
The following two year olds have yet to be assigned: DONEGAL WARRIOR (an Uncle Mo who had ankle issues but is coming to hand) DONEGAL MOONSHINE (a long striding CANDY RIDE) DONEGAL MOMENTUM (an Uncle Mo just getting cranked up at the farm) DONEGAL DREAMER (has potential!) AND DONEGAL DESTINY (has both speed and stamina).
