Guilder

Our 3yo filly by Goldencents (out of Miss Montreal) is named Guilder. 

DID YOU KNOW - Miss Montreal (the human) is a Dutch pop singer, and Guilder, of course, was the Dutch gold coin used pre-Euro :-)

 

Guilder made her race track debut on Weds 7/29 at Colonial Downs in New Kent, VA.  She was very game in her debut, finishing a close-up 4th, beaten just one length after going one mile on the turf.  Jockey Trevor McCarthy gave her a beautiful ride, swinging her out for a clear run to threaten the leaders until tiring late.  Just a whisker kept her from hitting the board.  We hope she got a lot out of it and look forward to her next try!

 

She trains at the Fair Hill Training Center under trainer Graham Motion and his team at Herringswell Stables.  She has grown and matured -  shown at left as a 2yo while in Middleburg, VA and at right in Fair Hill (July 2020)

Guilder became VA-certified after spending time at Legacy Farm in Bluemont, VA.  She then completed some additional training at the Middleburg Training Center with Kieran Norris & Madison Meyers.
