Two-year-olds at Sunshine Meadows are ready for their next step in their advancing careers. This time of year we focus on those that caught our attention throughout spring training and will seek to pick a top 10 (for evaluation in December) after another review trip. Here we go for recap #1:

#24 A Schocker (2ct Andover Hall-Stretch The Limit-Tom Ridge) - Charles Sylvester. Second foal of dam and first by Andover Hall.

#127 Morcredit Blue Chip (2ct Credit Winner-Queen Of The Moor-Malabar Man) - Charles Sylvester. Full brother to Maud Blue Chip (2, 1:58s, $222,203 in 2013), a returning three year-old performer for 2014 stakes that qualified last weekend.

#77 Feel Lucky (2ct Lucky Chucky-Classic N Lindy-Dream Vacation) - Charles Sylvester. Fourth foal of the dam, she a daughter of Classic Casette by Florida Pro. Dam is 100% producer from the first three foals (all geldings) including Super Classic 3,2:00.1h ($91,303), Lindy's Best Yet 4,1:56.1f ($85,904) and Lindor 4,1:56.3f ($21,882) He looks like a prospect!

#145 Talbot Hercules (2ct Muscles Yankee-Northern Flare-Andover Hall) - Charles Sylvester. First foal of the mare she with record 4,1:58.1f ($69,161) and daughter of Flame Tamer by Super Pleasure.

#3 Madrid (2ct Credit Winner-Starcelona-Muscles Yankee) -Paul Kelley. First foal of Starcelona (2, 1:55.1, $44,750). Solid trainee from Paul Kelley's well-bred trotting collection.

#23 Aldebaran Eagle (2ct Muscle Hill-Letsjusttalkaboutme) - Jonas Czernyson. Third foal of dam with 4, 1:56.1s mark and $56,338 earned. Her 2011 foal, Walk The Walk, by Muscle Hill just earned a qualifying record of 3, q1:57.2.

#33 Keystone Bodacious (2ct Muscle Massive-Balanced Action-Balanced Image) - Jonas Czernyson. Half-brother to three $100,000 plus winners including Logan's Hero (6,1:54.2s, $379,425), Manningly (4,1:52.3f, $344,631) and Keystone Bernard (3,1:55.3f, $213,441). Grand looking individual.

#48 Total Darkness (2ct Muscles Yankee-Leila-Andover Hall) - Jonas Czernyson. Third foal of unraced daughter of CR Royal Jeannie.

#45 Stirling Diva (2ft Muscle Massive-Shan Riches) - Jonas Czernyson. Half-sister to Ellen's Isle (4, 1:53,2f, $264,080) and Loch Katrine (5, 1:56.1f, $214,953).

Itsabouttimebaby (2ct Muscle Hill-KD Girl-Self Possessed) - Ron Gurfein Stable. First foal of stakes winning dam with record 4,q1:55.3f ($297,989), she from True Love by Pine Chip. This one has trained well all spring - impressive.

Very Much So (2ft Donato Hanover-Bedswerver-SJ's Photo) - Fred Grant. Half-sister to Marat (3, 1:56.2f, $59,621)

#5 Iron (2ct Cantab Hall-Ivory Lindy-Buvetier d'Aunou) - Lindy Farms. Full-brother to Lindy's Jersey Boy (4, 1:52.4f, $268,247) from a franco-american dam.

Interested owners and visitors have been attentive to the action, and their investments, throughout spring. The Sunshine Meadows three year-olds and up continue to progress as well, including Sylvester's Spider Blue Chip and Toss Cartwright. Many of the two year-olds are now at 2:20 or below - we expect the favorites might change again as they move north to approach qualifying tests. Dreams sometimes come true.
