MISTY IN MALIBU wires field at Pimlico
Loving the feel of the firm Pimlico turf beneath her feet, Dark Hollow Farm and Hillwood Stable LLC’s MISTY IN MALIBU set every fraction en route to a two-length allowance score on Saturday, April 27.
The win was as impressive as her first one, which came in her career debut at Laurel Park in September 2012. This time out, with Xavier Perez getting the call for the first time, the flashy dark bay daughter of Malibu Moon went quickly to the front and was never seriously threatened, striding beautifully to the wire.
Trained by Rodney Jenkins, 4-year-old MISTY IN MALIBU was purchased privately by David and JoAnn Hayden and Ellen Charles. The Virginia-bred, a full sister to stakes winner Lunar Mist, is out of the winning Rubiano mare Misty Rain and descends in direct female line from three-time Canadian champion Eternal Search.

EIGHTTOFASTTOCATCH skates to Pimlico stakes victory!
For the seventh time in his career, Sylvia E. Heft's EIGHTTOFASTTOCATCH got the big score, and this time took the show on the road by winning Pimlico’s $100,000 Henry S. Clark Stakes on Saturday, April 20 by five lengths. It was his first stakes win away from his Laurel Park homebase.
Trained by Timothy L. Keefe, the 7-year-old chestnut gelding shook off the winter rust and proved back to old form, shooting to the front from the start under Forest Boyce and never backing down. He extended his lead through the stretch and came home in 1:43.91 for the mile and a sixteenth in the off-the-turf Clark.
Bred by Dark Hollow Farm and Herringswell Stable, EIGHTTOFASTTOCATCH got his 12th career win from 41 starts, has 11 stakes wins or placings and earnings of $645,430.

Dark Hollow Farm and Hillwood Stable’s first-time starter DRESS UP looked divine in the winner’s circle after winning a maiden special weight at Laurel Park on March 21. Needing every yard of the five and a half-furlong test, she rallied from a half-dozen lengths back, swung wide on the turn and ran greenly down the stretch to catch the leader in a thriller at the wire, winning by the bob of her nose.
The 3-year-old daughter of Not For Love was training smartly for her debut with Rodney Jenkins, and went off as the 2-1 favorite in the field of eight. DRESS UP is the third winner from as many foals for stakes winner Dress Grey, a daughter of Lion Hearted who won the Smart Halo S. at Laurel.
Dress Grey’s dam, the Secret Hello mare Chemise, produced five foals by Not For Love, all winners, including stakes winner Coquettish and three-time stakes-placed Hello Lover, who had the second most wins in the nation in 2012 (with nine) and has earned $399,055. Chemise – whose nine starters all won – is also the dam of Maryland Million Ladies S. winner Miss Lombardi.

MYSTIC LOVE Kissed the Boys Goodbye in Gulfstream’s Dania Beach Stakes!
Turf loving 2-year-old filly MYSTIC LOVE tackled nine colts and geldings in Gulfstream Park’s $100,000 Dania Beach S. at Gulfstream Park on Saturday, Dec. 15 and mesmerized them with her kick for home, driving clear in midstretch and holding off the late rally of odds-on choice Charming Kitten to win by a half length. Overlooked at 16-1, the dark bay Maryland-bred daughter of Not For Love ridden by Elvis Trujillo paid $34 to win.
From a female line that traces directly back to Christiana Stables’ famed producer Obeah, MYSTIC LOVE was bred by Dark Hollow Farm out of the young winning Dixie Union mare Memories of Mystic who was also bred Dark Hollow. MYSTIC LOVE’s second dam, Mystic Dance, a stakes winner of $102,908, produced stakes winners Dance Fee ($336,100, Justakiss S, etc.) and Chancellor M. H.
It was the second stakes win for MYSTIC LOVE following her success in the five and a half-furlong $150,000 Selima S. at Laurel Park in October. The Frannie Campitelli-trained filly races for John Davison, who purchased her for $21,000 from the Dark Hollow Farm consignment at the 2011 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Eastern Fall Yearling sale. She has now earned $174,760 in four starts and is a leading contender for 2012 Maryland-bred championship honors.
Noted Frannie Campitelli, whose wife Jessica sent out the Florida-based filly: “She’s always trained like the longer the better, really. Her getting the distance wasn’t a great surprise. I was more surprised she was able to win at five and a half.” MYSTIC LOVE’s next likely start is the $100,000 Sweetest Chant, a mile turf stakes for fillies, on Jan. 27.
