  • Tyra's Victorious in the Lismore Elimination at Yonkers

    May 26, 2014

    McARDLE'S offspring continue to impress on the big stage. Saturday evening at Yonkers, TYRA (McArdle-Pernilla-Abercrombie) picked up where she left off as a two year old winning an elimination of the $164,744.00 Lismore Stakes for three year old pacing fillies in 1:54.4h, setting herself up as one of the favorites in next weekend's final. After a two hole trip, TYRA flushed out at the top of the stretch and paced home in 27.4 to take the victory by a length and a half for owner Cc Racing LLC, Illinois, trainer, Joanne Looney-King and driver, Jim Morrill. 

    McARDLE has had another successful year breeding in Ohio with a 2014 book totalling to date, 98. His book will more than likely  exceed 100 by the conclusion of the breeding season for the second year in a row. This is quite an accomplishment given the enormous increase in stallion competition that has come into Ohio this breeding season. It is a testament to McArdle's reputation, that breeder's know, that he is an extemely fertile stallion that consistently produces good looking foals that consistently compete not only at the sires stakes level but also at the very top levels of the sport. We look forward to his first Ohio crop selling at the yearling sales in the Fall, 2015.
