Dear Partners and Friends, 

The Saratoga Select Sale was likely our best ever.

Our plan coming into the sale was to vet all of the classic distance colts but to also focus on fillies. Our hope this year for DDX was to buy about three fillies and we have now done that. Fillies by Malibu Moon, Bernardini and Ghostzapper. We are plenty excited about all three.

Operation purchased three fillies during the Aug. 7-8 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale.

Donegal Racing, best known for campaigning the likes of grade 1-winning males such as Dullahan, Keen Ice, and Paddy O'Prado , branched out this summer by adding fillies to the roster.

Dear Partners and Friends,

KEEN ICE will run in the WHITNEY this coming Saturday, August 5. ICE will be trying to win back to back Graded Stakes here in New York as he returns to the scene of his greatest triumph.

Was it a tough call? Of course it was. But if we are going to beat Gun Runner (ranked second in then world on dirt) now is the time. ICE loves it here and Todd says he has never trained this well since he has had him.

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.
