2018 Maryland Thoroughbred Hall of Fame inductees selected

The Maryland Thoroughbred Hall of Fame’s newest inductees include European champion El Gran Senor and renowned filly Caesar’s Wish. The selections of these Maryland-breds were made by a committee of Maryland racing industry members, coordinated by the Maryland Horse Breeders Association and the Maryland Racing Media Association. El Gran Senor, a son of Northern Dancer, was foaled at his breeder E.P. Taylor’s Windfields Farm in Chesapeake City in April of 1981. One of the select few Northern Dancer sons to be kept by his breeder, El Gran Senor was named for his sire’s Hall of Fame trainer Horatio Luro. The colt was campaigned for Windfields Farm in partnership with Robert Sangster and was trained by Vincent O’Brien in Ireland. A champion at ages two and three in England and Ireland, El Gran Senor won seven of eight races in his career, earning $520,969. His victories included classic wins in the Irish Sweeps Derby G-1 and the English Two Thousand Guineas-G1. In 1984, he was selected as Maryland-bred Horse of the Year, champion 3-year-old and champion grass horse. Retired from racing during the fall of his 3-year-old season, El Gran Senor came back to Maryland to stand his first season at stud alongside Northern Dancer at Winfields Farm in 1985. The colt was moved to Ashford Stud in Kentucky the following year, where he...

2018 MHC Legislative Wrap-Up

(First appeared in the June 2018 issue of The Equiery) What do you get when you take 90 days + 47 Senators + 141 Delegates + 3,101 Bills?  You get the 2018 Maryland legislative session! The Maryland General Assembly convened on Wed. Jan. 10 and adjourned on Monday, April 9 – three months of nail biting high drama! It is not easy to pass legislation, and barely 28% of this year’s bills made it through the process; the system is intentionally deliberative – and that is a good thing, as it helps to avert capriciously enacted laws. To read more about the outcome of the session, click...

Potomac Horse Fever Detected in Maryland

From the Maryland Department of Agriculture – The Maryland Department of Agriculture received confirmation of a case of Potomac Horse Fever in a pony stabled in Frederick County from the University of Kentucky’s Equine Diagnostic Laboratory on August 2. The pony fell ill on July 26 and did not respond to treatment. The gelding died on July 30. A necropsy of the pony was performed at the Frederick Animal Health Laboratory on July 31. The Maryland Department of Agriculture is urging horse owners — especially those with horses that graze near rivers, streams and creeks — to watch their horses closely for signs of this disease. Clinical signs include mild to severe fever, diarrhea, dehydration, loss of appetite, laminitis and mild colic. Potomac Horse Fever is most commonly contracted by horses that ingest infected aquatic insects such as caddisflies, mayflies and dragonflies. “Potomac Horse Fever surfaces in Maryland every few years,” said Maryland Department of Agriculture’s State Veterinarian Dr. Michael Radebaugh. “With this summer’s heavy rains, pastures and meadows where equines graze are more likely to flood, increasing the chances that a horse could ingest these infected aquatic insects.” Equine owners are encouraged to keep horses off of flooded pastures, and to turn stable and barn lights off at night since the aquatic insects that carry this disease are attracted to bright light....
