Curlin has ‘Stellar' weekend


Two-time Horse of the Year Curlin enjoyed another stellar weekend as he puts together a career year as a stallion, with three graded stakes winners in less than 24 hours.

Stellar Wind, last year’s Eclipse Award champion 3-year-old filly, highlighted the weekend by prevailing in a battle of champions, outgaming Beholder to win the Grade 1 Clement L. Hirsch Stakes at Del Mar by half a length.

The following afternoon, Exaggerator moved to the head of the 3-year-old male class with a win in the Grade 1 Haskell Invitational in the mud at Monmouth Park. Earlier that day, Curalina had romped in the Grade 3 Shuvee at Saratoga.

Curlin, who stands at Hill ‘n’ Dale Farm, leads North America with four Grade 1 winners in 2016 and sits fifth on the general sires list.
