Who is Cedar Meadow?
Wisdom's Toll
7/30/08
Penn National Win

Wisdom's Toll scored her second career win in a big way when her connections changed strategy.  Coming from off the pace under Manny Chaves, Wisdom's Toll roared to the lead leaving the far turn and opened up a quick 6 length lead before coasting home a 6 1/4 length winner. The win was a new career best, so don't ask for whom the bell tolls.
Chute the Breeze

Penn National Win

After being sidelined since September of 2006, Chute the Breeze made his debut as an eight year old on Thursday May 15th at Penn National and what a performance. When the dust settled Chute the Breeze had come from off the pace, and ran and hid, beating a field of 8 by 5 plus ever widening lengths.

Going off at even money, Wisdom's Toll made every post a winner with a very decisive score in tonight's ninth at Penn National. Manny Chaves got her away from the gate in good order and then took hold and was dragged to the lead.

Mike Sedlacek, if he could have gotten to his email before I did, would have warned you all, "careful, Paul is just going to be plain insufferable tonight."

Mike did a great job. He got Breeze On to run 11 or better. Thanks Mike.





Chute the Breeze
3/29/06
Penn National Win
Chute the Breeze scored his 9th career victory with a determined stretch run in the 7th race at Penn National on March 29th. Katie Lee piloted Chute the Breeze in the 1 1/8 mile starter allowance test. The John Wames, Michael Sedlacek team had Chute the Breeze primed for a return to a new career top which he ran by laying 4th behind the three dueling speed horses. In the backstretch he began his characteristic long striding move and had all but favorite Parthenon collared by the top of the stretch. Chute the Breeze used up the entire stretch before collaring his opponent by a neck in the final strides rewarding his backers with a $20 plus pari-mutuel. Katie Lee's reaction were: "he settled by himself;" "he knew when to make his run without really being asked;" and overall simply "awesome."

Penn National Win
Chute the Breeze won his 6th race of 2005 tonight with a front running score at 1 mile and 3/4s.  Tom Clifton put him on the lead and slowed the race down... great job Tommy.
A pat on the back to John Wames who with 10 days got this colt ready for 1 3/4 miles.  I think we also need to remember Mike Sedlacek who obviously had this horse with a full tank when he left NY. Mike and John did a great job on the hand off here.  Remember conditioning for 1 3/4's ain't done over night.

Finger Lakes Win
Chute the Breeze scored a huge upset with his 4 1/2 length victory over a field of 7 at Finger Lakes on Monday September 12th in a $20,900 allowance affair. Chute the Breeze under John Davila bested Yankee Magic who was coming in off of a three race win streak at Saratoga and Belmont. Chute the Breeze had to overcome the outside post position and getting carried 6 wide in the first turn, but prevailed easily after forging to the lead at the top of the stretch covering the 1 1/16th in 1:45:54. This was Chute the Breeze's 7th career victory, his third with John Davila, and it increases his career earnings to over $137,079

Finger Lakes Win
Chute the Breeze won the feature race at Finger Lakes on Sunday July 24th by 2 1/4 ever widening lengths to increase his career earnings to $123,369, a record for a Cedar Meadow home bred. Chute the Breeze's sixth career win and fourth win of the year came in an allowance race for horses which had not won two State bred races. Trainer Chris Englehart had Chute the Breeze ready and John Davila did the rest with a very good ride. John took CTB to the outside down the back stretch which is where CTB likes to run. He started his rally going into the turn in the four path and then as he approached the leader, Sinbad, he gradually tightened up to the two path. Just a Whim who was rallying with Chute the Breeze on the inside got caught and checked, with his rider Clive Beech claiming foul on Davila and CTB. The objection was "quickly dismissed" as any traffic problems were of Mr. Beech's doings.
Chute the Breeze surpassed the career earnings record of his half sister Secret Breeze, now retired as a Cedar Meadow broodmare, and he is the third foal of Breezethruthetrees to earn over $100,000. Breeze On, CTB's three year old half brother is also closing in on the $100,000 mark and is enroute to Saratoga with Artesian Breeze, the first foal out of Secret Breeze.

Finger Lakes Win

Chute the Breeze got the job done with a hard fought stretch drive under John Davila taking the 1 mile and 70 yard event at Finger Lakes, the 6th race, in 1:44, with the official margin of victory being 1/2 length. Davila chose the 3 path all the way around until he needed the four path to keep Chute the Breeze's head clear. John gets an A for following instructions. Chris Englehart gets A+ for turning Chute the Breeze around, because as you will remember, the day we claimed him he was beaten a scazillion lengths. Today for $1500 more than that claiming price, he prevailed.

Belmont Win

Congratulations to Michael Sedlacek who pulled off his own little exacta by saddling two winners at Belmont today. Breeze On was reserved off the pace by Jean-Luc Samyn and then came out for the drive and won a hard fought stretch battle. Then Docstar took the third by a bit more, but not much, returning $29.20 under Rudy Rodriquez for our good friends at TriRichards and for Mike's mom Sue.
Marco Groom
5/6/05
Belmont Win

Jean-Luc Samyn pushed Marco Groom through a hole near the rail between horses at the top of the stretch and Marco did the rest as she dug in and put away Our Miss Jones in the stretch.  Jean-Luc's move to the rail when the field fanned out at the top of the stretch saved us quite a few lengths and probably was the margin of victory.  Mike Sedlacek had this filly razor sharp and if you were in the paddock before the race you knew Marco Groom was running a big number today.

Aqueduct Win
Marco Groom looped the field at the top of the stretch and ran down the lane every increasing her margin of victory to graduate from the maiden ranks. She scored by 5 lengths and was much the best. Jean-Luc Samyn gave her a confident ride. This win was especially pleasing as Mike Sedlacek, and his crew worked extra hard in getting Marco Groom ready after her subpar performance in her last outing. Our heroine returned $19.60 for the win and topped off a $181 exacta, a $4,501 trifecta and a $25,507 superfecta as well as finishing off a $291.50 double, a $1,070 Pick Three, a $2,080 Pick Four, and a $25,039 Pick Six. A heck of a graduation present no doubt.

Congratulations to Icicle Charlie syndicate members, Mike Sedlacek and Victor Fernandez on Icicle Charlie's very impressive victory this evening at better than 40-1. Under a skillful ride saving ground throughout, Charlie looked like a winner at every stage of the race and pulled away from the field through the stretch with a final time of 1:25 and change.
