Castle Village Farm claimed four-year-old Token Sacrifice, by Gold Token, out of the 7th race at Aqueduct on December 14th. Token Sacrifice finished a close second in that one, missing by a neck after a very wide trip.

Token Sacrifice is the first foal out of NY-bred stakes winner Mother’s Sacrifice. So far in 2011, he’s had eight in-the-money finishes from 10 starts.

CVF trainer Bruce Brown will likely point Token Sacrifice to NY-bred allowances on the Aqueduct inner track after the first of the year.

Castle Village Farm’s new claim, Fiscal Stimulus, ran into a buzzsaw when facing Grade 1 winner Boys at Toscanova in an Aqueduct allowance on November 11th.  Fiscal Stimulus had a good rail trip, but wasn’t able to get to the lead after being off a step slow. After running 3rd into deep stretch, he was just passed by two closers as the horses approached the wire. Boys at Toscanova, last year’s Hopeful (G1) winner as a two-year-old, was the easy victor.

Castle Village Farm’s five-year-old Rigby won a thriller in Belmont’s 8th race on October 13th, moving to the outside with less than 100 yards left and sweeping by the leaders to win by a widening length. Super ride by Javier Castellano, and great work by trainer Bruce Brown getting Rigby ready off a six-month layoff.

Rigby was claimed out of the race by trainer Jeff Odintz for the same price, $25,000, that we had paid for him last winter. In three starts for Castle Village farm, he had two wins and a third.
