Haynesfield once again NY Horse of the Year
Tuesday, April 12, 2011
For the second consecutive year, Speightstown’s Grade I millionaire Haynesfield has been voted New York-bred Horse of the Year.

This is just the third time in history a horse has won the top honor in back-to-back years, following WinStar-bred Eclipse Champion Funny Cide in 2003/2004, and Say Florida Sandy in 2000/2001.

A 4-year-old from the first crop of his Eclipse Award-winning sire, Haynesfield won three of his six starts in 2010, including a resounding 4-length victory over Eclipse Champion Blame in the $750,000 Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1) at Belmont. He also won the $300,000 Suburban H. (G2), ran second by a head in the $250,000 Cigar Mile (G1), and posted year-end earnings of $749,300.

Haynesfield has won seven New York stakes and earned $1,166,980 in three seasons for owner Turtle Bird Stable. Bred by Barry Weisbord and Margaret Santulli, he won the Damon Runyon S. at Aqueduct at two, then won four stakes in New York at three, to earn Champion 3-year-old and Horse of the Year honors.

Speightstown has now sired 19 stakes winners and earners of some $16,000,000 from his first three crops to race. He stands at WinStar as a Taylor Made/WinStar Venture for $50,000, payable when foal stands and nurses.
