The racing season is fast approaching and stables based at Sunshine Meadows have and are readying excellent older (three year-olds and up) players for stakes and northern track overnights. Several that have caught our attention are profiled below.

Spider Blue Chip (4gt, Andover Hall-Southwind Catlin-Muscles Yankee) - Charles Sylvester

3, 1:51.3, $1,178,099, 12 time winner in 28 starts. Owned by David Mc Duffee and Melvin Hartmanand bred by McLain L. Ward, Brewster, NY. Hambletonian elimination winner in 2013 along with Breeders Crown and world record win in the Colonial.

Acapulco Hall (3ft Deweycheatmnhowe-Ali's Cat-Meadow Road) - Fred Grant

Unraced in 2013. Classy filly owned and by Walnut Hall Limited, Lexington, KY. Dam has produced Amigo Hall (3, 1:54, $928,183), Ally Hall (2, 1:57.1s, $384,595) and Great Challenger (3,q1:55.3, $182,471) and four other sub-2:00 record performers.

Sorrento Hall (3gt, Groton Hall-SB's Fuscia Image-Balanced Image) - Fred Grant

2, 1:58, $134,090. Bred and owned by Walnut Hall Limited, Lexington, KY. Kentucky Sires Stakes Final winner in 2013.

Starfall Winner (3ft Credit Winner-Myth-Lindy Lane) - Robert Bencal Stable. Sixth foal of Myth, dam of Mythical Lindy

Sunshine Meadows trainees are rapidly gearing up for the 2013 racing campaign. On Saturday, Jonas Czernyson's band of female trotters qualified at the new Meadowlands in fine fashion- Maven, 1.56.1; D'orsay, 1:56.3; Ma Chere Hall, 1:56.4; Coffeecake Hanover, 1:57.3 and Mistery Woman, 1:57.4. At Pompano Park, Bob Bencal's Sina (4mt Cantab Hall-Third Reef-Conway Hall) was a qualifying winner in 1:57.3f for reinsman Michael Marx, Jr. Fred Grant piloted his trainee Somenicebeach (3mp Somebeachsomewhere-Up Front Gal-Dragon Again) to a 1:56.1f win and followed that with a 1:56.2f victory behind Shamballa (4hp Somebachsomewhere-Bolero Takara-Life Sign).

Two other Sunshine trainees won "for money" events at Pompano. Dewayne Minor scored with Mitey Savage in 2:00.2f and Francisco de Cid reined Broadway's Fortune to a 1:58.1f victory. Others yet to start for money, but worth watching, include Master of Law and Lindy's Tru Grit from the Lindy Farms barn trained by Domenico Cecere, Ken Oscarsson's Scacco Matto (a Kentucky eligible three year-old colt), and Jarold Hawks' Jack Litten (a Muscle Mass colt that qualified at Pompano).
