WOLFSON SENDING PAIR FOR TAYLOR MADE MATCHMAKER
Florida-based trainer Marty Wolfson, whose horses always bear watching at Monmouth, is sending two fillies up from his Calder base for the $150,000 Taylor Made Matchmaker Stakes (G3), which highlights the Haskell Day undercard.
Wolfson will be represented by Edmund A. Gann’s Eclisse and Howard Roberts Farm’s Dancing Band in the mile and an eighth turf race for fillies and mares.
Eclisse, a 4-year-old French-bred by Ski Chief, won a Calder turf stakes in May, and last out was second to Lady Digby in the All Along at Colonial Downs.
Wolfson’s most recent successful raid came in 2006, when he shipped in Miesque’s Approval to win the Grade 3 Red Bank Stakes. Miesque’s Approval went on to win the Breeders’ Cup Mile and was named champion turf horse of 2006.
The Taylor Made Matchmaker, which will have its 42nd running this year, is a unique event that offers stallion seasons to the first three finishers in addition to prize money. This year, the three Taylor Made Farm stallions are Wildcat Heir, Northern Afleet and Southern Image.
