News From Willey Farm & Racing Stable

Spring 2015

K D Amazin Spirit has been recovering from an operation to pin a broken sesmoid.  He came up lame after his last win.  He is now at Cal Expo training down and looking good.     K D Nicol finally got his first 2015 win, setting a new life mark of 1:58.2 while doing so.  Here he is crossing finish line a length ahead. 

  Win March 21st 2015

 K D MySweetLady has been in qualifiers at 2:08.2, but came up with a knee problem and is turned out on the farm while waiting to determine what needs to be done.

And finally, we are working our two year old, a colt named K D doitwihgusto at Cal Expo.  He is out of Cherry Tree Salome, by Claudius Augustis. We expect that Gus will be quite a challenge.
