Our Current Offering
It’s a pleasure to announce the formation of Ridgewood Racing VII and VIII. The new partnerships involve 2 well bred thoroughbred athletes and world class trainer, Wayne Catalano! Both of these fillies were born and raised here at Ridgewood Stables and are currently in training. We expect them to be “race ready” by mid summer.
Ridgewood Racing VII will consist of a 2-year-old filly out of stakes placed broodmare and winner of $171,000, Polish The Cup. Ridgewood Racing VIII will consist of a 2-year-old filly out of stakes winning broodmare and winner of $86,000, Flick. Both of these fillies come from a long line of proven producers, both on the sire and dam side. Both are by sire Garcon Rouge, winner of over $334,000 and 19 races.
Because these are Illinois bred and foaled fillies they will start their racing careers in Illinois, likely at Arlington Park in Chicago. Later we will have the option of racing in New York, Kentucky, and Florida. We will be working with Illinois’ leading trainer, Wayne Catalano. Wayne has been the leading trainer at Arlington Park, Chicago for 10 out of the last 12 years, along with beating his own record this past summer. Wayne has also trained 3 Breeders Cup World Champions and 2 Eclipse Award Champions. He has racing stables established at all the major tracks in Kentucky, New York, Illinois, and Florida. Wayne has been listed in the top 30 trainers in North America for the past several years. For more information on Wayne, please visit the trainer section of our website.
Below are Equineline pedigree reports for both fillies.
