by Bob Marks, for Deo Volente Farms
Four members of the inaugural crop of Hambletonian champion Trixton will make their freshman debuts in Meadowlands 2-year-old races on Saturday (June 2) it was announced by Deo Volente principal Sue Agopian.
“As Trixton is the first world class stallion to stand at our Flemington facility, it is especially gratifying and perhaps a little nerve wracking to see his babies finally make the races,” Agopian said, “but from what we’ve heard so far, the Trixton colts and fillies have been impressive.”
The four Trixton freshmen include Given, a homebred from Donatella Hanover trained by Jimmy Takter; Starita, a $50,000 yearling purchase from Morningstar trained by Joe Holloway; Battenberg, a $210,000 yearling from Coffeecake Hanover trained by Joe Holloway; and Gerri’s Trix, a homebred from Gerri’s Joy trained by Jimmy Takter.
The entire staff of Deo Volente Farms will be rooting for “our Trixton babies.”
