Lucky 7th for Sheppell thoroughbreds at TDN Monday!
Posted in Right Sidebar (Articles & Events)
Monday was an exciting day for Sheppell Thoroughbreds at Thistledown. Race 7 at Thistledown had a 9 horse field, with the top 4 finishers being raised by Sheppell Thoroughbreds!! The top 3 fillies were bred and raised by Peter Sheppell, and Twerk, the winning filly is owned by Peter as well! Twerk is trained by Jeff Radosevich and was ridden to victory by Jose Bracho. Gertie Cat, the 4th place filly was raised by Sheppell Thoroughbreds for the late Dr. Daniel Kessler.
Additionally, two other colts bred and raised by Sheppell Thoroughbreds found their way into Monday’s winner’s circle. Kole Man Can won his claiming race and Wicked Warrior won an allowance optional claiming race and ran what appears to be his fastest E Figure, a 106.
