Brittany-Breds Dominate NJSS Trots

May 20, 2024

Three-year-old trotters bred by Brittany Farms dominated the stakes-laden card at the Meadowlands last Saturday night, winning three divisions of the highly competitive New Jersey Sire Stakes.
Brittany-breds Bright Star and Waterfall won two of the three splits of the $90,000 (div.) 3-Year-Old Colt Trot.
Bright Star 3,1:52.1, by Muscle Hill-Morningstar, won the first division in a career best 1:52.1, handily defeating heavily favored Mars Hill. The talented colt, a $150,000 Lexington Selected yearling grad, is owned by Pryde Stables, Caviart Farms, Daniel Plouffe, Riverview Breeding and Brittany Farms. A stakes winner last year at 2, he is in the care of the trainer-driver duo of Tony Alagna and Scott Zeron.
Waterfall 3,1:52 evidently prefers close finishes… he finished second by a nose in last week’s NJSS and won the final sophomore colt division Saturday in a dead-heat in a lifetime best 1:52 flat. The Walner-Torrent colt is campaigned by Brittany and co-breeder Al Libfeld and is trained by Tony Alagna.
On the distaff side, Brittany bred and owned Local Honey 3,1:53 won her first start of the season in the $90,000 (div.) NJSS 3YO Filly Trot for trainer Tony Alagna and driver Todd McCarthy. It was a career mark for the Walner-Honey Honey filly, who closed out her freshman campaign winning the fall Kentucky Sire Stakes Final at Cumberland Run.
Although Brittany’s Lexington Selected yearling roster is not yet finalized, you can view the complete listing of yearlings here. It includes the Chapter Seven three-quarter brother to Local Honey, Mr Honeycando.
