The stakes winning broodmare, Doin' The Town, 2, 1:57.3; 3, 1:54.2 ($475,274), passed from foaling complications on April 5th, 2016.

Doin' The Town was a stakes-winning daughter of Donerail and 12 time Winner. She was a half-sister to Baltic Brat, 3, 1:57.3; 1:55.4s ($232,160), dam of Winbak Brat, 2, 1:57.3; 3, T1:54.3 ($242,851).

Doin' The Town was owned through her racing and partly through her breeding career by the partnership of Barbara Baum and Joe Thomson (of Winbak Farm). When Barbara Baum passed away, Winbak Farm bought out the partnership.

During her racing career, she was trained by Wayne Nickells and later by Paula and William Wellwood.

At 2, she won the Bluegrass Stake, Kentucky Standardbred Sale Stake, Merrie Annabelle Stake elimination, and New Jersey Sire Stakes leg and Final. She was second in the International Stallion Stake.

At 3, Doin' The Town was a Winner of Kentucky Futurity elimination and race-off. She also won the Simcoe Stake. She was second in the Historic - Coaching Club Oaks Stakes leg, Matron Stakes elimination, 3 New Jersey Sire Stakes legs and a heat of the World Trotting Derby. As an aged racehorse, she was a multiple Preferred winner.

The dam of 9 foals, highlighted by Dancing In Thehall, 2, 1:55 -'15 ($75,958), who won the International Stallion Stake at The Red Mile in 2015.

Her latest foal, a Lucky Chucky filly, will have high expectations for the New York Sire Stakes.

Her daughters, Dancing Slippers, Day At The Spa and Doin The City, will continue her legacy as Winbak Farm broodmares.

Doin' The Town will be missed but always remembered for the great memories she gave her partnership while racing.
