The handsome dark bay son of Maryland sire Mosler, bred by Ellen Charles’ Hillwood Stables, is now charting his own sensational course. In his first trip outside of Maryland he became a New York stakes winner when taking Aqueduct’s $100,000 Jimmy Winkfield Stakes for 3-year-olds in dramatic fashion on Jan. 31.

BETCHA BY GOLLY she”s a winner!
DetailsPublished: 27 September 2020
The 2-year-old filly Betcha by Golly was getting closer and closer to a win. On Sept. 26, in her third career start and her first at a distance greater than a mile, the daughter of Tapizar went right to the front over a sloppy Pimlico track and stayed there, sweeping home by two and three-quarter lengths for owners Skeedattle Associates and trainer Graham Motion.
Betcha by Golly has always looked special. Skeedattle Associates’ Willy White, who with partners Bob Orndorff and Lou Rehak has operated a highly-successful Maryland-based racing stable for decades, went to $150,000 to take her home from the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearling sale – making her the highest-priced filly in the sale. She not only boasts great looks, but a pedigree to match. White told the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred after the sale: “If we can get a Maryland-bred that’s put together, balanced like that, with that kind of family, with the kind of opportunity we have to race in Maryland, you can’t beat it.” In her short career, Betcha by Golly has earned $44,369.

DetailsPublished: 03 July 2020
The 2-year-olds out of Plum sure are sweet! Her Upstart filly turned heads at the 2020 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic juvenile sale, which was moved from its traditional May date to June. After zipping an eighth-mile in 10 seconds flat at the Under Tack Show, equaling the fastest time at the distance, the dark bay filly walked into the ring and drew a final bid of $400,000 from Sallusto/Albina, Agents. Cary Frommer prepared and consigned the filly, who went through the ring as a yearling for $120,000.
Two years earlier, Plum’s Bodemeister colt went through the May sale and sold for $300,000.
Plum also was a looker at 2 while making her mark on the track. The daughter of Pure Prize was named Maryland-bred champion 2-year-old filly of 2011 after capturing three straight races, including the Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship Stakes. Stakes-placed at 3 and a winner of four races with earnings of $128,440, Plum retired to the Dark Hollow Farm broodmare band to join her dam, homebred multiple stakes-placed Bamba (by Not For Love).

Dream filly tops Maryland-bred 2-year-olds at $300,000 at Ocala June sale
DetailsPublished: 22 June 2020
The Malibu Moon filly Dream did well for breeders Dark Hollow Farm, Dorsey Brown, Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Davidov and Mr. and Mrs. David Schwaber. After their homebred won her debut at 2 and was three-times stakes-placed at 3 in six starts, once in graded company, she retired to the Dark Hollow broodmare band. Of her four foals to sell at auction, three have brought six figures, including her gray filly by The Factor, who topped all Maryland-bred offerings at the 2020 OBS Spring Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training in June.
Willis Horton Racing LLC went $300,000 for Dream’s daughter, who breezed an eighth in :10.20 at the under tack show. Willis Horton has had prior success with a Dark Hollow Farm prospect, having purchased future graded stakes winner Partner’s Hero from the Haydens at Saratoga as a yearling in 1995.
Dream’s current 2-year-old was sold by her breeders for $100,000 as a yearling last September at Keeneland. Dream’s first foal, a colt by Speightstown, brought $120,000 at the 2014 Keeneland September sale, and the partners hit a homerun when getting $410,000 the next year for her Ghostzapper colt. In 2017, a colt by More Than Ready sold for $80,000. The mare’s four yearlings sold for a combined $710,000 at Keeneland. Her sales average (her offspring selling a total of five times) is $202,000.
One of Dream’s foals went to the sale but didn’t reach her reserve and was brought home. That filly, Caught Dream’n (by Blame), became a two-time stakes-placed runner, was on the board in six of her seven starts, and is now a member of the Dark Hollow Farm broodmare band. Dream’s current 3-year-old filly, Dazzle’m (by Super Saver), was not offered for sale and is in training for the partnership.
Dream, in foal to City of Light, sold for $170,000 at the 2019 Keeneland November Breeding Stock sale – her final foal bred by the partnership is a yearling colt by Maclean’s Music who will be sold at the Midlantic Fall Yearling Sale at Timonium in October.
TOY finds his way home for second win in a row
DetailsPublished: 31 May 2020
Toy continues to add exciting chapters to his story. The blaze-faced 3-year-old chestnut gelding was unfazed by the challenges he faced early in the 1-mile allowance on Sunday, May 31 at Laurel Park, finding an open lane late, turning on the afterburners and recording his second win in a row.
Repeatedly blocked as he headed into Laurel’s far turn, Toy was making a winning move in the stretch when shut off in tight quarters near the three-sixteenths pole, found room when shifted to the outside of the leaders and lengthened his stride to sweep by for a length and a quarter win. The field of 11 included three stakes performers, and his time of 1:36.14 was the fastest by more than a second of the four races contested at the distance on the card.
