Shamrock Highlands Preferred Trainers Off to Hot Starts in April

Our preferred trainers in the Kentucky, California and Northeast regions are off to a fantastic start in the 2021 racing season.

Ben Colebrook has won 4 of 9 starts in the last week, including two wins at Keeneland by jockey Luis Saez, taking Cancellara and Predetermined to Claiming wins on 4/7 and 4/9, respectively. At Mahoning Valley on 4/10, his Prodigy Doll took the win in the Cheryl S. White Memorial Stakes race. He rounded out the week last Sunday with an AoC race at Keeneland with Corey Lanerie riding Club Car for Ben's fourth win in as many days.

At Santa Anita, Ryan Hanson had a pair of wins with Simmer Down and Respectfully on the same card on 4/4.

Also with four wins over four days is Kate Demasi, whose Kind Humor grabbed a win in a Maiden Special Weight at Parx on 4/6. In the very next race, Twirling Liz went on to win a $25k Claiming. Penn National is no stranger to Demasi's continued successes, where two of hers took battle for the lead in another Maiden Special Weight on 4/7, with Catching the Wind taking 1st place over Onthisharvestmoon. Demasi took another win at Penn two days later in a $31k Allowance with Lady Munnings.

Congratulations to all in their great showings in our first half of April!
