The Catalog for the South Florida sales company’s
SUNSHINE SALE contains a number of intriguing prospects
including four of our own -they being REAL DEJAVU (Real
Desire-Once Again), CAMBALAYA (Cams Card Shark-Paris Bistro),
SOUTH BEACH TOY (Dream Vacation-Nina Toy Eden) and IN THE
GYM (Muscles Yankee-Where’s The Bride).
The trotters can be seen at Bruce Nickells’ barn
at Sunshine Meadows while Gary Baker is prepping the pacers
at South Florida. Real Dejavu represents an opportunity
to obtain a choice filly from the first crop of $3 million
+ winner Real Desire. The dam Once Again is a sister to
Dragon Again whose first two foals have made the races.
Real Dejavu was a good moving filly when we had her.
Cambalaya is a Cam’s Card Shark sister to a colt
we sold last year named NINETYONE HAWKS. He was a very big
yearling who probably needed time to come into himself.
This filly has shown well thus far.
The veteran Mr. Nickells who should be in the hall of fame
if he’s not already, has glowingly spoken about SOUTH
BEACH TOY and with good reason. She’s by the highly
successful Dream Vacation from Nina Toy Eden a mare with
a virtual barn full of black type credits. The colt IN THE
GYM is the first Muscles Yankee from a Sierra Kosmos daughter
of Duenna. So its not surprising he can trot some at this

FIRST THINGS FIRST
No sooner is the holiday history and thoughts turn to a
pair of significant FIRSTS expected in the near future.
For openers there’s the anxiously anticipated FIRST
FOALS of Triple Crown champion Windsongs Legacy and International
champion Revenue and we’ll also be preparing the anticipated
FIRST crops from the recent pacing greats McArdle and Red
River Hanover for the fall sales later on.
Our first little Windsong will be either a brother or sister
to the Jimmy Takter’s rugged MUSCLE MEMORY from Peace
Be With You while the first Revenue will likely a colt or
filly from the well bred Eject (Super Bowl-Classic Cassette).
McArdle names to remember could be THE McDONALD (Born To
Be Best), GENERAL McARDLE (Armbro Terrace), LOCH McNESS
(Loch Laggin), EMPTY McPOCKETS (Insolvency) and OLD McARDLE
probably the nicest Nadia Lobell in years.
Red River prospects include OLD RED RIVER (Art Sale), MISTER
RED (Paula’s Promise), DOC HOLLOWAY (Doc’s Girl),
COMBAT REDDY (Lady JBB) CINCINATTI RED ROSE (Odds On JP)
and a brother to Brandon’s Cowboy named RED SEA SCROLLS
from Angel be Good.
We’ll have more about the McArdle’s and Red
River’s as they progress.
CONGRATULATIONS SAMMY& JEFF
Heartfelt congratulations to Sam McKee on his Hervey Award
for Broadcast excellence and to our partner and OWNER OF
THE YEAR Jeff Snyder. Both are worthy recipients as are
all of the other nominees.
Vivid Photo, Peaceful Way, Strong Yankee and Chocolatier
are indeed appropriate candidates for trotter of the year
honors but what about Mr. Muscleman? Seems the dominant
aged trotter would be worthy of consideration as well.
Great to read on all the websites that NJSEA tracks (Meadowlands
and Monmouth) handled $1.345 billion in all of which $485
million was wagered on track at The Big M.
Would be even better to read the actual breakdowns as to
