Catch a Glimpse follows Appalachian trail

Email

Like mother, like daughter. Newly crowned Canadian Horse of the Year Catch a Glimpse won the Grade 3 Appalachian Stakes last week at Keeneland – a race her mother, Halo River, established the stakes record for in 1998.

Halo River, by Irish River, won the Gold Digger Stakes at Hawthorne in addition to the Appalachian, where she ran the mile in 1:34.80.

As a broodmare, Halo River has produced eight winners from 12 starters, led by Catch a Glimpse and Grade 3 winner Old Forester, now a leading sire in Canada.
