Castle Village Farm’s New York-bred two-year-old filly Underthemoonlight (Golden Missile-Yon Van Dance by Yonaguska), fresh off a maiden special weight win on November 29th at Aqueduct, has been nominated to the East View Stakes, the final NY-bred two-year-old filly stakes of the year. The $100,000 East View will be run at a distance of a mile and 70 yards at Aqueduct on Sunday, December 15th. The race drew a compact list of 11 nominations.

While the 15-day turnaround time from Underthemoonlight’s win to the East View may be too short, and the distance may be too long, still, it’s great to have a filly that shows enough talent to justify making the nomination. We’re looking forward to good things with Underthemoonlight, whether she ends up running in the East View or not.

Castle Village Farm’s East of Danzig won the 10th race at Belmont on Sunday, October 13th. Under a well-timed ride by Manuel Franco, East of Danzig saved ground down the backstretch, then angled to the outside coming into the stretch and ran down the front-runners in convincing fashion, winning by three-quarters of a length.

East of Danzig was claimed out of the race, so our CVF 2012 claiming partnership is once again looking for a new horse.

The Castle Village Farm 2012 Claiming Partnership, which lost Afternoon Treat to a claim back in June at Belmont, filled that stall in Bruce Brown’s barn on August 3rd by claiming East of Danzig out of the 4th race at Saratoga for $20,000.

East of Danzig, a son of Langfuhr and grandson of Danzig, is a five-year-old NY-bred gelding, out of the German-based family of Raffinierte, the dam of the good New York-bred race horse and sire Raffie’s Majesty.

East of Danzig, sent off at 9-1, finished a fast-closing 3rd in the August 3 race. He’ll be pointed to another turf start at Saratoga before the end of this year’s meet.
