Gotcha Shaken was next. He was in a tough Open Allowance race against stakes proven company. Shakey burst out of the gate grabbing the lead. He held it to the top of the stretch.

10/05/06 ..... Social Account never grabbed the "off track". He broke poorly and ran a very uncharacteristic 8th.
Sensational Diva got shut off coming out of the gate. We wanted her on the lead. Instead she was dead last. Diva gained ground, picking off horse by horse. She ran 4th. A claim of foul was disallowed.
10/01/06 ..... Over There had to be put down after damaging his right front ankle during the race today. As usual, OT was in stalking position, trying like mad. He was making his move when the injury occurred. I can honestly say that I loved this horse. He had tremendous heart. He was a pleasure to be with around the barn. All he lived for was to race. He gave it his all.
He will be missed.
09/28/06 ..... September Stats:

09/09/06 ..... We had a great chance, with Double Luck, to win on Owners Day at Delaware Park. A nice crowd of partners were on hand as leading rider Ramon Dominguez got a leg up. Lucky sat off the pace. As they approached the final turn Dominguez had him in gear. He was picking off horses one by one. Lucky collared the leader running second by a shrinking head! He was claimed away.
09/07/06 ..... Over There was clearly second best, beaten by a better horse tonight. OT has been with us since August 5th of 2005.
09/05/06 ..... Sam's Sixteenth looked like a different horse tonight. Unsihuay let her break as she wanted, settling her down behind the leaders. She dropped back to fifth on the outside. As they approached the turn, Unsihuay shook the reins and she went by them drawing away by 5 plus.
09/04/06 ..... Gotcha Shaken made his racing debut in
a MSW event. He exploded to the lead, crossed over and settled in for
the run. Shakey was overtaken by one rival but was clearly second best.

08/16/06 ..... Two in tonight. Social Account settled in behind the leaders, ran hard to get third. Social Account has hit the board 5 of 6 starts for Renpher Stable.
Paradiso was next up. Diso broke poorly, settling in behind the leaders. When he started to gain his footing, there was no room. He was hut off down the lane finishing 5th.
08/15/06 ..... Sensational Diva ran second tonight in a gutsy performance.
Perez broke her sharp, from the 11 hole. She had enough early speed to
duck in one off the rail. Diva battled the inside speed. Heading for home,
she blew the turn. Diva came back and went by the inside horse. She probably
thinks she won. However, on the outside the winner came from off the pace
finishing strong to get the win. Diva was clearly second best.
08/12/06 ..... Sir Socrates set the pace, faded, then came on again to gain third.
08/10/06 ..... Salsa Music never threatened a tough Allowance field at Charles Town. It was for non winners of 2 other then, or 4 lifetime. She had settled into a nice spot but never fired.

06/18/06 ..... Family Appeal made a bid then ran evenly down the lan. He finished 5th and was claimed.
06/16/06 ..... Salsa Music ran a game second behind a
nice filly, nothing to be ashamed of. She broke alertly. Whitacre had
her rolling early. He was trying to get her on or near the lead. She wasn't
fast enough to cross over form the 8 hole. Going into the first turn she
was three wide. It's tough to overcome a wide trip at Charles Town. The
turns are so sharp, the rail horse has a huge advantage. Salsa lost two
lengths by being three wide. Down the backside she made a move. She was
coming at the eventual winner. As they headed for home Salsa had dead
aim on the only horse in front of her. She ducked inside the leader and
just couldn't cath her. She ran a game second against a tough field. She
now has finished in the money 6 of her 7 lifetime starts.
06/15/06 ..... A head. Social Account ran his eye balls out, losing by a head. Belmonte broke him alertly. He was sitting outside the lone speed in a great position. Luis asked him to go, and off he went. Down the lane FA was on the lead digging in. He eyeballed the eventual winner as he caught SA. He held on gamely fighting all the way losing by a short head.
06/07/06 ..... Sensational Diva made her Renpher debut by smashing a maiden field by 7 1/2!
06/06/06 ..... Family Appeal turned in a dull effort finishing 6th. Sitting dead last with slow fractions up front were too much to overcome.

05/31/06 ..... Salsa Music came late with little room down the stretch. She closed weel to gain 3rd a nose off second, in an Allowance race at Charles Town.

Marty will be responsible for the Delaware operations reporting back to Les Stickler Jr. "Bringing Marty back onto the team is long overdue. He's a Stickler clone. Hands on and hard working. With Les and Marty on board we have great things to look forward to. Being stabled in these two locations offers our partnerships another form of flexibility. We can move horses according to their ability." Bob O, Renpher Stable
04/14/06 ..... Crying Poverty defeated a field of Allowance NY Breds in Finger Lakes Opening Day Feature race. CP flashed his early speed, and drew clear winning by 10! He now has 5 wins in 14 starts with earnings over $82k!!!!!
04/07/06 ..... Over There faced a pretty
tough bunch of Starter $6000's. There were two horses sporting 90 plus
Beyers from recent efforts.
03/30/06 ..... Renpher Stable had two running. Survivor Kippy made a bid then weakened running 4th. His pair of 4's in the month of March were not we what had hoped for, but they paid the bills.
Salsa Music brought her two race winning streak in against older fillies. She got the lead and drew clear winning easily by a widening 8 3/4 lengths! Salsa now has 3 wins and a 3rd in 4 starts! Her combined victories exceed a winning margin of 20 lengths. Stakes bound?????
3/10/06 ..... Survivor Kippy looked like he was having things his own way. 24/1, 48/2, on his way to a mile. He lead all the way but tired down the lane finishing a disappointing 4th.
03/08/06 ..... Too much too soon, left too little too late as Sam's Sixteenth ran a rare bad race.
03/04/06 ..... Saturday night Crying Poverty killed
our streak by becoming the first horse to start this year finishing off
the board. Before the race we had two choices. Let Who's Bluffing go out,
and run for second, or get in front of him, kick up some dirt and hope
for the best. CP broke well and Carlos crossed over pretty effortlessly.
He actually put some daylight between himself and Who's Bluffing. Clifton
moved WB up alongside. I thought he would blow by us. CP dug in! He actually
put Who's Bluffing away! Heading for home CP looked like he might just
pull this one off. Speed duels usually set things up for closers and this
race was no exception. CP ran just shy of 5/8ths then he packed it in
for the night. The fractions were blazing fast. The track is extremely
deep, yet CP went 21/2, 44/3, 57/4! That was that.
03/03/06 ..... Salsa Wins for the second yime in three
lifetime starts! The gate opens and Salsa broke best of all. She burst
into the lead immediately. On the outside Silver Heroine, was rushed up
to challenge. Carlos sat with Salsa stalking, sitting second. Around the
turn Salsa ranged up, caught the leader and went on by her! Heading for
home Salsa was in front. The lead widening to 3 lengths. She held off
the field winning by a length and a half! Salsa now has two wins and a
second in three starts.
02/23/06 ..... Colonel Duncan was claimed away as he turned in another "in the money" race. CD had two seconds and two thirds for Renpher Stable. We caimed him for $6,500 and lost him for $10,000. The difference in claim money plus his check earning ability made him a profitable partnership. We wish him and his new connections the best of luck.
02/18/06 ..... Survivor Kippy made his Renpher Debut running a distant second behind the red hot winner. Two consecutive races behind tough Allowance winners.
02/17/06 ..... Sam's Sixteenth runs second behind runaway winner Browse. Sam was no match for the winner but was clearly second best. Sam turned in two seconds this month earning far more than her keep.
02/15/06 ..... Salsa Music breaks her maiden in her second lifetime start. She won a MSW event at Penn Nat'l by 12 1/2 lengths!!!!!
02/09/06 ..... Crying Poverty ran 4th after setting sizzling fractions of 21/3, 44/3 on his way against a tough field of sprinters going 6 furlongs. CP was chased down late, finishing within 3 lengths of the winner.
02/08/06 ..... Over There tired down the stretch tonight.
We asked Carlos to sit off of Tonto Gusto. If Tonto got loose it was all
over. As it turns out, OT was pressed early and could not overcome the
fast fractions. He ran a game race finishing third. Thus far Renpher Stable
has been "in the money" every start of 2006.
2/4/06 ..... Sam's Sixteenth ran third in Allowance company at Penn Nat'l. Sam was rolling into gear when she was cut off by the leader who was drifting out. Otero had to check, then alter course. Sam lost her momentum but finished strong enough to get third. A claim of foul was disallowed.
01/27/06 ..... Colonel Duncan ran second in a $10k claimer going 1 mile and 70yds. CD could not catch the leader, but was clearly second best.
01/25/06 ..... Survivor Kippy was claimed tonight out of a $12,500 race at Penn Nat'l joining the Renpher Stable family. When you claim a horse, the best scenario is for the horse to run a close second. If the horse wins, you lose the condition. By running a close second you get that warm fuzzy feeling of success while retaining the valuable condition. Tonight Kippy ran second by a head!
01/13/06 ..... Crying Poverty wins a N2X Allowance at
01/05/06 ..... Sam's Sixteenth starts off the new year with a fast closing second in Allowance company. Sam broke well, settling into 6th towards the outside. She kept picking off horses on the outside. Heading for home she gained second taking dead aim at the leader. She ran hard late but ran out of ground, second best.
2005 Comes To An End
This year we had 64 starts. We won at a 23% clip gaining 15 Winners Circle photos. Add to that 15 seconds and 9 thirds. Our "in the money" percentage was incredible at 60%. We were pretty close to a 50% first or second finish with 46% of our starters finishing first or second!!!!!
We expanded to 7 horses, had a couple of solid winning
streaks and turned in a terrific year. Before the year started I had hoped
we would top our high of 8 wins in a year. I had a goal of 10 wins in
mind, with an optimistic goal of 12, one per month. Needless to say the
15 wins far exceeded my hopes.
Have a Happy New Year, and Happy Birthday to all of the
12/30/05 ..... At long last our 2yo In Training purchase from June made it to her debut at the races. This afternoon Salsa Music gave grounds for expectation and hope.
The instructions to Flores were simple. Send her right
from the gate. Unfortunately she broke lousy. Soon enough she was sitting
third along the dreaded rail. A horse outside of her crossed over in front
causing Emilio to slightly check. I didn't realize this until I got home
and watched the replay. Next thing you know Salsa is fifth and not liking
dirt in her face for the first time of her life. Flores committed his
ride to the rail. As they headed for home he cut the corner taking aim
at the only path available along the rail. A horse came in on Salsa narrowing
the hole. Flores hit her right handed and she did not respond. I think
she didn't like the rail inside of her and getting hit right handed just
wasn't going to help matters. Emilio switched hands just in time for the
horse along side Salsa to drift off of her. Just when it looked like there
was no hope the hole widened. Salsa saw daylight and ran like hell! She
closed fastest of all displaying a quick turn of foot. She closed the
gap to gain third, losing the race by less than a length while getting
beat for second by a neck.
12/29/05 ..... Colonel Duncan could not overcome a strong track bias favoring the front runners. Since racing returned at Penn Nat'l after a series of cancellations, the track has been playing fast. CD likes to break at his own pace running his best late. He ran a respectable 3rd picking off the horses he could catch before running out of ground.
12/28/05 ..... This is unbelievable but true. I'm watching
the race thinking Belmonte has him in a great spot. He starts making a
move sitting third. As they enter the stretch Prince looks to be in trouble
as he changes leads late. Next thing you know he is off the screen. On
the screen I can't see anything. As the riders come back they are all
turning their heads towards the finish line. That's never good. Now I'm
starting to worry. The photo for show comes up and Prince isn't in it.
The replay runs and again I lose him off the screen. The order of finish
is posted. Prince DNF! Then my cell rings, it's Stickler.
12/23/05 ..... The most tragic event in racing occurred
to Watrals Rodeo Bob. Bob sustained a serious injury a quarter of a mile
into his last effort. He shattered his sesamoid in the right front foot.
Bob may have been 9 years old but he was perfectly sound. He was a happy
horse who tried hard. In the 5 starts he made for us he won once, ran
third twice, a fourth and then tonight.
12/20/05 ..... Sam's Sixteenth was out matched in an A1X at Phila Park. She went wide against a tough field finishing 9th. Her race marked the first time in the last 16 starts Renpher Stable was off the board.
12/10/05 ..... Watrals Rodeo Bob broke at his own pace settling mid pack early on. When he started to roll Rodriguez took him off the rail looking for room that wasn't there. Stuck behind a wall of horses Bob was pointed to a hole that closed as fast as it appeared. He ran hard late gaining third.
12/01/05 ..... Three in a row! Three wins in our last
3 starts. Over There just beat a tough Starter Allowance field at Penn
Nat'l. His win will likely vault him to the top of the leader board for
wins by a horse at Penn Nat'l with 6. He passed Canal Town in the standings,
who he beat tonight.
11/30/05 ..... Two entries in two different tracks andl
we won 'em both!!!!! Now that's the way to spend an evening.
11/27/05 ..... We opted for a $7,500 claimer knowing it would draw a tough field, and it did. Watrals Rodeo Bob was in against better than he had faced in a long time. We were also asking him to go farther than he has ever gone in his 9 years. Not only was it a mile, but it brings with it two turns. Bob broke leisurely and was not pressed by Rodriguez. He sat patiently in the back, all the way in the back! Heading into the second turn I was carefully watching Bob as he went into his first effort requiring two turns. He handled it without a problem, changed leads on the money and started running down horses one at a time! Bob ran out of ground unable to catch the top three. His effort was a credit to his heart. Stickler had him ready to roll. It's a shame we didn't have a softer spot for him.
