Wee Highland LassWee Highland Lass
Five Year Old Chestnut Filly

Wee Highland Lass was purchased by Highland Yard at the 2010 Keeneland September Yearling Sale. Sire Include earned $1.7mm as a runner including winning the Grade 1 Pimlico Special. Dam City Fair won $300,000 as a runner. More notably City Fair is already dam to Graded Stakes winner Win Willy who has won in excess of $800,000. We are excited with the quality of breeding on both sides for “Lass” and pleased to finally have a filly in the stable.

Lass has been very professional in early training and leads the way for stable mate Yard Bully. If all goes well, Lass should be breezing in April and be ready for the track by late spring or early summer.

Wee Highland Lass' 3 year old colt Tattered provided Highland Yard a breeding success winning a maiden race at Delaware for Trainer Alan

Gold and owners Colts Neck Stable. Breeders awards will be paid to Highland Yard by the Kentucky Breeders Incentive Program. Hopefully more success to come from the young breeding program incuding Tattered's sistrer Zahra in training in California.

April 3/18

A stable favorite out-west this pretty chestnut mare has already produced a $225,000 Fasig Select Sale two-year-old and has a lovely Daaher two-year-old in training with OJ Jauregui in Northern California. She is doing all the right things and we are eagerly awaiting "Zahra's" racing career. Wee Highland Lass has a Northern Indy Yearling and is being bred to Shaman Ghost in California.

April 29/17
Highland Lass foaled a big correct 122 pound colt last night at Woodbridge Farm in California. This son of Northern Indy is as homebred as they come with Highland Yard runners on the top and bottom of his pedigree. Look forward to watching him grow and race in California.

July  14/16
Homebred Highland Lad worked a very easy 5 furlongs last week and will get a good lick this week in advance of a debut later this month. He is a big colt and we expect him to take a few races to figure things out. He should develop into a nice two-turn colt later in the year. His yearling brother by Union Rags sells in Kentucky next week.

April  3/16

Well we haven't provided an update on Wee Highland Lass in a while!

We did not sell the Successful Appeal Colt born in 2014 as she was plced to far back in the sales book and would not have brought us as much as we thought she could earn as a race horse. He has been named "Highland Lad" and will go to OJ's barn this month for a hopeful early summer start.

Wee Highland Lass had a nice Union Rags colt in 2015 which is being prepped for the yearling sales this year. Union Rags is a more commercial sire than Successful Appeal and should bring a reasonable price.

On March 31st, Wee Highland Lass foaled a strapping 140 lb Daaher filly a photo of whom is below. She looks awesome and we look forward to running her as a Calbred as she was dropped in California.

 

August 19/14

Wee Highland Lass' Colt by Successful Appeal colt will sell at the October Fasig Tipton Sale.
A picture of the clot can be found here.

July 22
The Successful Appeal yearling colt out of Wee Highland Lass will sell in Keenland September or Fasig Tipton October. He looks like a very fast colt and we will not be too upset if he doens't make his reserve price! A video of the colt can be found here.

Feb 20
A couple of weeks late but Wee Highland Lass delivered a 125 pound Union Rags colt in Kentucky early yesterday morning. All are doing well in the very cold Kentucky weather. A picture of the colt nursing can be found here. We have decided to change plans a bit and will breed Wee Highland Lass back to Daaher.

Jan 16, 2015
Wee Highland Lass is expecting a Union Rags foal in early 2015 and will be bred back to top sire Candy Ride. We are likley to race her yearling colt by Successful Appeal next year.

Feb 12
Wee Highland Lass birthed a large healthy Successful Appeal Colt last Saturday at McCauley Farm in Kentucky. For a videoof the colt at 18 hours of age click here. We are thrilled to have three healthy foals from three maiden mares in our first year of breeding. Thank you to the team at McCauley Farm.

Jan 6
Wee Highland Lass is closing in onher due date in late January. We are excited for this Highland Yard runne to have her foal to Successful Appeal. For a photo of Wee Highland Lass please click here. We have selected Wee Highland Lass' next sure and that will be Belmont Winner Union Rags. This is another freshmen sire that is stunning to look at and out by one of our favotite sires, the deceased Dixie Union. Pictures of the foal will be coming!

Mar 14
Wee Highland Lass has been confirmed in foal to Successful Appeal by the veterinarian. If all goes well Highland Yards' first foal should be on the ground in early February of next year. Good luck to the mom to be.

Feb 27

Wee Highland Lass was bred to stallion Successful Appeal at Walmac Farm in Kentucky on February 21st. A vet apointment in a couple of weeks will verify that she is in foal. For a link to Succesful Appeal's stallion page click here.

Jul 2

Wee Highland Lass' racing career has come to an end. She suffered a transverse fracture of her 3rd carpal bone in her right fore leg. A sad turn of events for her as she had been performing well in recent months and was installed at a 6-1 morning line for the $75,000 Northbound Oaks Stakes. Fortunately Lass is able to bear weight on the leg and thus the fracture does not appear to be life threatening. She is in decent mental standing and is taking some Bute for the next two weeks. She will stay under the watch of Miguel Silva on stall rest for a couple of months at which point the bone hopefully will have knitted enough to allow her to ship back to Califormia or potentially Kentucky. There will be some arthritis we will monitor in six months time. If all were to go exceptionally well, she would be covered by a stallion in the spring of next year. For now it is about getting her healthy and happy to begin her new career.

Her race career combined with a good pedigree as a daughter of Include and out of a Carson City mare should enable her a decent shot as a brood-mare. She retires having won four races on dirt, turf and synthetic with total earnings of $40,351.

She was our first filly, and gave us plenty of thrills including breaking her maiden at Pleasanton at 15-1 and winning two Allowance races at Turf Paradise one with my Dad in attendance. She was always a favorite around the barn with a sweet temperament and her light Chestnut coat. She will make a great mare.

Jul 1

Tough, tough news for our up and coming filly. Wee Highland Lass was very sore this morning when Miguel checked in on her at the barn at Canterbury Park. Her right foreleg seems to be the issue and she will definetly be scratched from the July 4 Northbound Stakes. This sport can be tough and no more so than this morning after a discussion with Miguel. Her legs are plastered and the Vet will take some Xrays tomorrow morning. Of little consolation is the fact she had a beautiful breeze yesterday and Miguel thought she would beat all comers this week. We are not of high hopes and will await the inevitable call from the Doc. We hope that a promising career as a broodmare is not put in jeopardy.

Jun 1

We are not sure we would have won but we would have been a lot closer if regular jockey Geovanni Franco was able to ride Lass today. Geo is recovering from a spill last Friday and was unable to take any mounts today. The good news is Geo is improving and will be back in the saddle in a few days time. As it was, Lass broke well and for reasons not clear to us was hussled up 4 wide for the first two furlongs despite her running style of coming from off the pace. Although she competed well for the first 3/4's there was nothing left for the stretch after the long hussling trip she had.

It was a tough task today against older horses as Lass was, for the second race in a row the only three year old in the field. She will be back in training next week pointing to the three yer old fillies stakes race next month with Geovanni back on top. Nothing positive from this outing and we hope for better next time out. A Chart of the race can be found above.

Jun 1

Wee Highland Lass drew post position 8 of 8 for Saturdays 7 1/2 furlong allowance race on the turf at Canterbury Park in Minnesota. This race is for three year olds and up and will be a good prep for the upcoming 3 year old stakes race. Lass won against older horses last time out and should be competitive here. She has been assigned morning line odds of 6-1 making her the 5th favorite. Jockey Franco who has ridden Lass to two straight wins at Turf Paradise is not available to ride on Saturday and the reigns will be handed over to veteran jockey Scott Stevens. Past performances for the race can be found here. Live video of the race can be found at http://www.canterburypark.com/LiveRacing/RaceReplays/tabid/107/Default.aspx

May 05

Wee Highland Lass moved up in class and won at the wire. Our filly, the only 3 year old in the field, waited patiently under the expert ride of Geovanni Franco and was placed 5th of 6 at the half mile mark. Lass weaved through a bit of traffic in the stretch and held on to score by a mere nose in a blanket photo finish with two other horses. It was great to catch a little racing luck at the wire. The bottom line is a nice check and further opportunity looming. We have decided to send her with Trainer Silva to Canterbury Downs in Minnesota as Turf Paradise closes tomorrow. Silva takes most of his string there and is very pleased to take Lass with him. In particular we are pointing her to the $50,000 Northbound Pride Oaks for three year old fillies to be run July 4th at one mile on the turf. Those fillies better be ready for Highland Lass because she will be coming at them from off the pace. A chart of the race can be found above.

May 02

Wee Highland Lass has drawn post position 2 of 6 for Saturday's 7 1/2 Furlong Allowance on the turf for 3 year old and up fillies and mares. This move up in class should provide a stiff challenge for her as she runs against winners for the second time. Wee Highland Lass is the only 3 year old in the field but does take a 5 pound weight allowance as a result. She should like the additional distance as she has closed so well in both starts at Turf Paradise. What remains to be seen is wether she will like running on the grass. Her one previous start on Turf was a dissapointing 5th at Golden Gate Fields last fall. Lots of interesting things to look for here and we would not be suprised to see our filly fun them down at the wire. Past performances for the race can be found here.

Apr 17
Our courageous filly split horses at the 1/4 mile pole drove to overtake the leader in deep stretch and held off a late challenge from the favorite to score an Allowance win at Turf Paradise today. 'Lass has taken to the dirt track at Turf Paradise and hopefully can squeeze in one more start before it closes for the season May 6th. Wee Highland Lass, the fourth choice in the parimutuals made her second straight off the pace run and showed considerable guts. The best part was seeing a Highland Yarder who winters in Mesa in the Winners Circle giving the thumbs up sign with Trainer Silva. He said he worked harder than 'Lass down the stretch cheering her in. A great day for the Blue Gryphon. A chart of the race can be found above.

Apr 14
Wee Highland Lass steps up in class to face Allowance horses next Tuesday at Turf Paradise. Lass drew post position 2 of 6 for the 6 furlong sprint for Fillies and Mares 3 years old and upward. Lass looks to fit in this group well and should be very competitive if she can mimic her last performance when she stormed down the stretch to catch all but one runner on this same track. Jockey Franco will have to get her going a bit earlier this time out as the distance is shortened to 6 furlongs from 6 1/2 furlongs. Past performances for the race can be found  here.

Apr 4
Wee Highland Lass's race did not go. We will have to wait and see if the racing secretary brings it back or wether we will have to find another spot for her. Although this spot looked perfect, it would have meant a quick turnaround for her and she will likely benefit from an extra few days between races.

Mar 27
Wee Highland Lass charged from well off the pace to grab the second prize paycheque against older horses in her desert debut yesterday at Turf Paradise. Dead last at the half-mile pole jockey Franco gathered 'Lass up for a 5-wide run around the turn and she nailed all but one at the wire for her first in the money performance of 2012. She showed some meddle and should beneift from stretching out to a mile or 7 furlongs. Trainer Silva is excited for a race coming up against 3 year olds fillies only where he thinks 'Lass will be most formidable. We will wait to see the race come up in the condition book likely in 3 or 4 weeks time. It would be ideal to have her win as a three year old and to not lose her to a claim as she sets up for a breeding career next winter. A chart of the race can be found above.

Mar 23
Wee Highland Lass drew post position 2 of 8 for Monday's 6 1/2 Furlong $16,000 claiming race at Turf Paradise. This is significantly higher claiming level that will make it less likely for her to be claimed. Of course it also makes it a more competitive field and 'Lass will have her hands full. She has been training well and should benefit from leading Turf Paradise Jockey Geovanni Franco. The third race on the card with a Phoenix post time of 1:59 PM. Past Performances for the race can be found here.

Mar 17
We decided to scratch Wee Highland Lass from Sunday's claiming race at Turf Paradise. It was apparent that she was going to be claimed and we decided we don't want to lose her.  We have also had a private bid for her. Given her sibling Win Willy is a multiple graded stakes winner with over $800,000 in earnings and her brother just sold for $200,000 at the OBS two-year old sale we believe she is worth more as a brood-mare than as a race horse. The decision will now be where to breed her and wether we will let her run at allowance level another time prior to sendin her to the breeeding shed. This will mark a new and exciting path for Highland Yard. Stay posted.

Mar 13
Wee Highland Lass drew post position one of six for Sunday's 7 Furlong turf test at Turf Paradise. She is dropping down in class and should be tough assuming she takes to the turf course. Her one previous turf start at Golden Gate was mediocre. Young Jockey Juan Arosemena gets the mount for leading Turf Pardise Trainer Miguel Silva. Past Performances for the race can be found here.

Mar 01
Wee Highland Lass has settled in nicely for leading trainer Miguel Silva at Turf Paradise. The 3 Year Old Fillies race did not fill for this weekend so we will look for a race over the next couple of weeks for her.

Feb 10
Wee Highland Lass faded to a dissapointing 6th in her sprint outing yesterday at GGF. She has not shown much heart or determinationsince her win in December and may not be the type of race horse we envisioned. We have decided to send her to the leading trainer at Turf Paradise, Miguel Silva, to see if we can turn her around against softer competition. Lass will likely be in a van by early next week to her new home in the desert. A chart of the race can be found above.

Feb 7
Wee Highland Lass drew post position 3 of 6 for Thursday's 5 1/2 Furlong Claimer at GGF. She will need a large improvement over her last race to be competitive here although she is dropping down in class. Catalino Martinez, who won with 'Lass two times out, gets the mount. Past Performances for the race can be found here.

Jan 14
Wee Highland Lass was outclassed today and finished last in the 6 horse Allowance race at GGF. She was always close and only finished a few lengths back but didn't have enough to compete at this level. We will drop her in class and perhaps stretch her out to a mile and try and get her back to her winning form of last month. A chart of the race can be found above.

Jan 13

Wee Highland Lass drew a salty field of six for Saturday's 6 Furlong Allowance race at GGF. The field includes four horses that won last time out many at much faster fractions than Lass in her last race. Having said that our girl has been ttraining very well and should acquit herself well under Jockey Catalino Martinez who won with her last time out. Hoping for some good racing luck on Saturday. Past performacnes for the race can be found here.

Jan 01

Wee Highland Lass worked a solid 1/2 mile in 49 and 2/5ths over a cuppy GGF main track yesterday, 13th of 32 at that distance. After her win

two weeks a go she will move up to the starter allowance class on January 14th. She is a happy sort and continues to train well.

Dec 18

Wee Highland Lass mowed down five horses in the stretch to win the 5 1/2 furlong claimer at GGF this afternoon. Jockey Catalino Martinez got her to relax for the first half of the race before moving outside and making a furious stretch drive to "catch 'em all" in a fast time of 1:05 and change. She undoubtedly fired a life time best Equibase speed rating which we will know tomorrow. We anticipate racing her back in Starter Allowance company in the new year around this distance or perhaps six furlongs. We have 'Lass to thank for getting us off the schnide and back in the Winners Circle. She pocketed $7,200 for the win. A chart of the race can be found above.

Dec 16

Wee Highland Lass has entered for this Sunday's $12,500 Claimer going 5 1/2 Furlongs at GGF. A filed of 8 has drawn and we should be competitive. "Lass breezed very well last weekend (5th of 78 at 4 Fulrongs) and we are hoping she can finish in the money. Past Performances for the race can be found here.

Nov 27

Wee Highland Lass performed better than expected and better than any time since July while finishing third in the 6 furlong claimer at GGF on Sunday. Despite breaking poorly she got quickly back in contention and was closing on the leaders throughout the back stretch. Going off as the longest shot on the board we were pleased with her gutty performance. No speed records were set but she did bank $1,440 for her efforts. A chart of the race can be found above. We will try her back in 3 or 4 weeks time.

Nov 25

Wee Highland Lass is entered for the 4th race at GGF this Sunday November 27th. After a series of dissapointing races she is getting one more chance at this level. She did have a great work last weekend and hopefully can return to her maiden winning form. She will be one of the longer shots in the seven horse field. Past Performances for the race can be found here.

Nov 16

Wee Highland Lass worked 4 furlongs in 49 seconds flat on Saturday which was 29th of 99 at that distance. We are going to give this two-year old filly one more race to see if she shows improvement. We are contemplating a mile on the turf for her against Starter Allowance company on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24. If she performs poorly as she has the last number of races we will send her to the farm for a few months to see if she matures. She is extremely sound and has been working well but shown nothing at the races since her Maiden win.

Nov 1

Wee Highland Lass finished 8th of 10 in Friday's Claimer at GGF. She showed no speed and little rally to never really be in contention. Back to the drawing board for this beautiful filly. It could be we don't have a race horse here although she did show a decent performance back in the summer breaking her maiden at Pleasanton. Likely try to find her yet an easier spot and see if we can turn her around. A chart of the race can be found above.

Nov 1

Wee Highland Lass drew post position 5 of 10 for Friday's 6 furlong claiming race for 2 year old fillies at GGF. This is a steep drop in class and should enable a more competitive showing for this Include Filly. We love her around the barn but need her to step it up on the track. The race actually drew tough with a few horses that have beaten WHL before. We'll hope for the best and hope to get a good ride from Bill Antongeorgi. Past Performances for the race can be found here.

Oct 23

Wee Highland Lass worked a strong 4 furlongs in 49 2/5ths seconds which was 28th of 94 at that distance Saturday. She will have a maintenance breeze next weekend and ahould be ready to go in the 6 furlong claimer Friday November 4th. She is a sweetheart in the barn and the first horse we go see when there. She is going to make a most beautiful riding horse after her career at the track is over. We hope she doesn't get claimed next a week Friday but have to put her in a spot where she should be very competitive.

Oct 18

Wee Highland Lass had a mediocre work last Saturday going 5 furlongs in 1.03 3/5ths seconds which was 59th of 91 at that distance.

After a nice Maiden Claiming win in July she has shown little, thus the decision to drop her down to the claiming ranks. We anticipate she will be much more competitive at this level and will likely be one of the top few favorites. Given her poor performance as of late she is an unlikely claim target. The race is listed in the condition book as an "extra" so it is by no means certain this race will go. She is a favorite of ours in the barn and may make my sister-in-law a beautiful riding horse if she doesn't get moving!

Sep 30

Wee Highland Lass finished 5th of 6th in the One Mile Allowance for 2 year Old Fillies and did not show much game down the stretch. She tracked the pace well for the first half mile two wide but didn't have anything left late. She came out of the race fine and will train towards a start at a

lower level of competition in late October. A chart of the race can be found above.

Sep 20

Wee Highland Lass is entered for the Saturday's 2 year old fily allowance at GGF. She drew post position 3 of 6. Francisco Duran gets the mount.

This will be WHL's first time around two turns and on the turf which we anticipate will suit her well. PP's for the race can be found here.

Sep 3

Wee Highland Las(t) finished a dissapointing 6th and last in yesterdays starter allowance at GGF. She raced 3 and 4 wide throughout and

was empty in the stretch. No excuses for this one as she should have been salty in that group of fillies. Back to the drawing board to get her to revert to the form she showed in winning impressively in July. A chart of the race can be found above.

Sep 2

Wee Highland Lass drew post position 4 of 6 for today's 6 furlong Allowance race at GGF. Bill Antongeorgi gets the mount.

Our filly was installed at 5-1, 3rd favorite of the 6 runners. The favorite has only run once but won convincingly by 5 lengths and

is training very well. We think our filly will have lots of speed to run at and if all goes well will be closing fast as they head to the wire.

The race goes off at 1:44 pm pst and can be seen on calracing.com. For past performances of the race click here.

Aug 5

Wee Highland Lass was a little inexperienced and perhaps a little outclassed in the $150,000 Grade 3 Sorrento Stakes at Del Mar.

She chased willingly until the final turn when she was steadied between horses and never got back in stride. No shame against this field and she should be very competiive in her next spot likely back at Golden Gate Fields.

Jul 22

The starter allowance for two-year old fillies didn't go at Santa Rosa and has been held as an extra for future days. The race may go for next weekend and if not we may enter in the Stakes at Santa Rosa later in the meet.

Jul 10

Wee Highland Lass won willingly yesterday. Jockey Antongeorgi hussled her well out of the gate which was a nice suprise after the dissapointing start in her debut. Moving smoothly through the first 3 furlongs she was 3rd on the rail with the two front-runners a full six lengths ahead. As they entered the run for home Wee Highland Lass started to reign them in with long fluid strides whilst the two on the front end were tiring. After a scintillating stretch duel with leader "Bold Remark" our filly mowed her down at the wire to win pulling away by 3/4's of a length.

We are thrilled with the win and even more excited that the Filly is bred and looks like a natural two turn horse that should get better with distance. After galluping out a half mile she shook her head once, turned and calmy sauntered back to the winners circle. She was barely tired back at the barn. This one oozes class and we hope to have a nice two-turn filly on our hands. The chart for the race can be found above.

Jul 06

Wee Highland Lass has been entered to run in Saturday's 6th race at Pleasanton. A $40,000 claiming race came up for two year old fillies going

5 1/2 furlongs. We want to get the sour taste of her debut out of her system and wheel her right back at this lower level. We haven't seen much from her yet but hope she has a positive experience on Saturday. Another Include Filly named "Her Smile" just won the Grade 1 "Prioress Stakes" for owner and restauranteur Bobby Flay. We want some of that cooking .... Past performance for the race can be found here.

Jun 25

We knew Wee Highland Lass was destined to be a two-turn route horse but nonetheless were disappointed with the total lack of speed she showed while placing 8th in her debut. She broke poorly and took a long time to get in to stride. She also took back when dirt was kicked in her face early. The only good news of the race was that she made up ground and finished relatively well. It was the top two year old filles in the race and she came back sound. Back to the drawing board with this filly and hope for a better outcome next time out. A chart of the race can be found above.

Jun 24

Wee Highland Lass drew post position 2 of 9 for Saturday's debut at Pleasanton. She has been installed at 10-1 with kockey Bill Antongeorgi aboard. Six of the nine are first time starters. We think 'Lass will eventually be a two turn horse who will like to go further but antiicpate she will acquit herself well on Satruday. There appears to be a ton of speed in this race so hopefully you will see 'Lass making a late charge down the lane.

Past performances can be found here.

Jun 19
Wee Highland Lass breezed 5 furlongs from the gate in 1:03 3/5ths seonds which was 30 of 39 at that distance. O.J. caught her in under one minute so somebody was way off. She breezed great and finished up stong easily passing the horse that broke with her. We are very excited for her debut with Bill Antongeorgi aboard next Saturday June 25th at Pleasanton. Given the reported time of her work she will be at long odds but we look forward to a strong performance. She is destined to go longer but should be coming hard as the head down the lane. Entries are Tuesday and past performances should be posted late Thursday.

Jun 11

Wee Highland Lass breezed a very strong 5 Furlongs in 1:01 flat which was 6th of 53 at that distance and fastest of all two year olds (filly or colt). Jockey Antongeorgi was on our filly for the breeze and will be the likely rider for her debut. O.J. has pronounced her ready for the races and we are excited about her debut coming up in two weeks time.

Jun 2

Wee Highland Lass continues to train very professionally. "Include" fillies have been racing very well including St. John's River who finished 2nd in the Kentucky Oaks. Our filly has been all class and we have faith she will be come an excellent two-turn horse. With that in mind we have decided not to run her in the 4.5 furlong sprint at GGF and instead will point her to debut in a few weeks time at a longer distance at the Pleasanton meet. She is extremely sound and continues to do everything asked of her.

May 31

Wee Highland Lass breezed 5 furlongs in 1:02 3/5ths seconds on Saturday from the gate. The work was 18th of 28 at that distance.

We are debating running her in the Maiden Special Weight for Fillies going 4.5 Furlongs on June 9th or waiting for the Summer Fairs and perhaps a bit longer distance. She has been training well and very professional but is likley to be a "two-turn" horse who will do better at longer distances of a mile or more.

May 22
Wee Highland Lass breezed her first 4 furlongs in 49 1/5ths seconds which was 26th of 89 at that distance. She continues to train well in advance of her likely first start in a $28,000 Maiden Special Weight for fillies on June 9th.

May 16

WHL breezed 3 furlongs from the gate in a brisk 37 2/5ths seconds yesterday morning marking her first work breaking from the gate. The work was 10th fastest of 31 at this distance and another solid work for our lone filly. She is progressing and still pointed to a mid to late June debut.

May 09

WHL breezed 3 furlongs in a very brisk 36 seconds flat Sunday morning at GGF. As usual she worked aside stablemate Yard Bully.

The beautiful chestnut filly had a great audience as 8 relatives and friends in town for the Brain Tumor Walk enjoyed a fun morning at the backstretch. Our filly is only 4 or 5 weeks away from her debut and the excitment is building. Thanks for all the support of our guests and O.J.
