The first stride to the finish line begins in South Carolina
​Three graduates of South Carolina training centers and one horse who calls Camden home, won Stakes
between April 22 and May 11.

On April 22, Far Mo Power was 11th and last trailing the leader by 13 lengths after the opening quarter-mile in the Page McKenney Handicap at PARX. This 6-year-old gelding then began to launch his bid advancing on the inside in the turn, then swung to the outside, flew by the field in the stretch and won by 1 ¼ lengths. In 17 career starts, Far Mo Power has 8 wins, 3 seconds and 4 thirds raking up $450,000 in earnings. He learned his early lessons from Randy and Kala Rentz.

Five days later, on April 27, Uncorked (AUS) proved best in the Royal Herione Stakes-G3 at Santa Anita.  Uncorked sat back and saved ground during the run down the backside and around the turn for home. At the top of the stretch, she made her move taking the lead inside the eighth pole and drew clear to win by 3 lengths. This mare spent time with Donna Freyer at her Custom Care Equine operation in Camden.

Sea Streak was much the best in the Long Branch Stakes at Monmouth Park on May 11. Developed for his racing career at the Travis Durr Training Center, Sea Streak stalked the leader during the opening half-mile. He took command in the final turn and ran away from the field in the stretch, crossing the finish line 7 ¼ lengths in front. In only 7 career starts, Sea Streak has 2 wins, 3 seconds and a third earning just shy of $200,000.  

Also on May 11, the 7-year old gelding, Abaan, recorded his fourth straight win in a race over hurdles, including 3 Stakes wins. At the Iroquois Steeplechase meet near Nashville, Abaan faced only two others in the Green Pastures Stakes. Abaan calls Camden home. He is trained by Kate Dalton and has been ridden in all of his starts for her by her husband, Bernie. In the Green Pastures, Dalton had Abaan relaxed for the opening 1 ½ miles of this 2 ¼ miles race. He then asked Abaan the question and the horse immediately responded. When clearing the final fence in front, Abaan was a convincing winner by 2 ¾ lengths. In a career over the flat and now jumps, Abaan has 8 wins including 5 Stakes and has earned $621,290.
