Cash is King LLC and LC Racing’s Project Whiskey fended off late challenger Fly On Angel to win the $75,000 Parx Juvenile Fillies Stakes at Parx Racing on Monday, Nov. 4.


Making her stakes debut, Project Whiskey settled into third, stalking early pacesetter Capital Q through an opening quarter in :22.69. It was a three-filly battle as Project Whiskey joined Lula’s Roadrunner and Capital Q through a half mile in :45.30, and on the far turn charged for the lead. She put away the early leaders, then repulsed Fly On Angel down the stretch to prevail by three-quarters of a length. She stopped the clock for seven furlongs in 1:25.16.

The Robert E. Reid Jr. trainee improved her record to 2-0-2 from four starts to boost her earnings to $106,800. Making her career debut at Saratoga in July, Project Whiskey had back-to-back maiden special weight third-place finishes in upstate New York. She broke through with a win at her home base at Parx in September, romping home by an impressive five and a half lengths going seven furlongs.

A daughter of Tapizar, Project Whiskey was bred by David and JoAnn Hayden’s Dark Hollow Farm, who also bred her dam Over the Moon, a winning daughter of Malibu Moon out of Clever Phase. Project Whiskey is Over the Moon’s second named foal, and first winner. The mare hasn’t had a foal the past two years and was bred to Irish War Cry for 2020.

Regular participants in Maryland Horse Breeders Association Yearling Shows, the Haydens took home a first-place ribbon with Project Whiskey in 2018, in Class IV for Maryland-bred fillies by out-of-state sires. Among those in the class was Sharing, winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf-G1 three days before Project Whiskey’s stakes score.

Project Whiskey was consigned by Dark Hollow to the 2018 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Eastern Fall Yearling sale, where she was purchased by Cash is King LLC’s Charles J. Zacney for $35,000.
