Whereshetoldmetogo runs streak to three in the Star de Naskra - Maryland Horse Breeders Association
logo1

Black Cloud Stable’s Whereshetoldmetogo swept past Nico Bree N Teej and pacesetter Onemoregreattime in mid-stretch and sprinted to a two-length triumph the $75,000 Star de Naskra Stakes for 3-year-olds, the final of four stakes for Maryland-bred/sired horses on the 12-race Maryland Pride Day program at Laurel on Aug. 18.


 

It was the third straight win and second consecutive stakes for the 3-5 favorite, following a rail-skimming victory in the seven-furlong Concern Stakes on July 7 at Laurel. The winning time for the six furlongs was 1:09.11.
 
“I think shortening him up [has helped], because I was trying to stretch him out,” said winning trainer Anthony Pecoraro. “He’s been training very well. He had a little issue at Charles Town with one of his feet, but everything’s OK now.”
 
A chestnut son of El Padrino, Whereshetoldmetogo began his win streak with a 10 1/2-length romp over older horses in a six-furlong allowance June 9 at Delaware Park. Saturday was the first time he had made back-to-back starts over the same track since the winter, when he was fourth in the Mucho Macho Man Stakes and won the restricted American Fabius at Gulfstream Park. At 2, he won his debut at Delaware Park, and captured the First State Dash Stakes at the same track. With a record of 14-6-2-0, he has earnings of $263,570.
 
Bred by Northview Stallion Station general manager David Wade, Whereshetoldmetogo is out of the winning Domestic Dispute mare Undisputed Legend, a half-sister to 2005 Maryland-bred champion 2-year-old filly Celestial Legend and stakes winner Amie’s Legend.

The first four foals out of Undisputed Legend are winners, and her current 2-year-old – a Maryland-bred full-brother to Whereshetoldmetogo named Castlewood Terrace – broke his maiden at Arlington Park in mid-July and came back in his third start to finish third in the Prairie Meadows Juvenile Stakes on Aug. 10.

Undisputed Legend has a Golden Lad yearling colt and produced a filly by Uncle Lino this past April.
