Cheyenne Stables sent out five horses in a six-day span from coast to coast, and won every single race.
First to strike was Perfectly, a 3-year-old colt by Majesticperfection, who won a $64,000 maiden special weight over a mile at Oaklawn Park on March 18th. Trained by Donnie Von Hemel, the homebred has a win, two seconds and two thirds in eight starts for Cheyenne Stables and McNeill Stables.
On March 19th, Special Ops decimated a $60,000 maiden special field at Aqueduct, taking an 8 1/2-furlong event on the inner dirt by 5 3/4 lengths. The homebred son of Big Brown has a win and a second in his last two starts under trainer Christophe Clement, and was ridden to victory by Irad Ortiz.
Two days later across the country, Courageous Call broke first and never looked back in a $62,980 allowance at Santa Anita. The fleet daughter of Tale of a Cat sped her six furlongs in 1:09.98 under Tyler Baze, and boasts two wins and a second in three starts this season. Trained by Ron Ellis, she has compiled a record of 9-3-2-1 and $138,520.
On March 22nd at Aqueduct, multiple stakes filly Sustainable sped to victory in a $67,000 allowance over six furlongs. The $200,000 Fasig Tipton July yearling was second twice in $100,000 stakes races in New York last year, and has amassed a record of 10-2-4-2 and $167,500 under trainer Kiaran McLaughlin.
The fifth winner in the streak came March 23rd, when Slew Divine broke his maiden by nine lengths at Will Rogers Downs in his 2015 debut. This 3-year-old is a homebred for McNeill Stables and Cheyenne Stables.
The five-race victory streak comes right on the heels of Madeforlucky's runner-up effort in the $750,000 Rebel S. (G3) on March 14th. Cheyenne's Triple Crown nominee next faces the starter in the $1,000,000 Arkansas Derby (G1) on April 11th.
