Castle Village Farm’s three-year-old NY-bred colt Proletariat (ReadtheFootnotes-Royal Valentine by Langfuhr) made his racing debut Sunday, in the 6th race at Belmont, a NY-bred maiden special weight.
Starting from the far outside in a 12-horse field, Proletariat raced three and four wide all the way, covering two lengths more than the eventual winner, 3-5 favorite Whale Rock. Proletariat moved up well on the backstretch, swept wide around the turn, and briefly poked his head into second in the stretch, but then tired in the final sixteenth to finish 5th. All ion all, a very promising debut for our horse.
Now that Proletariat has raced, our 2014 partnership is closed. But we are still offering our 2015 partnership, which will focus on claiming horses.
