Saturday, May 13, 2023: CRIMSON ADVOCATE (’21 f. Nyquist / Citizen Advocate) picked up not only her first black-type win but also a $25,000 stipend to travel to and compete at this summer’s Royal Ascot meet when she won Gulfstream Park’s Royal Palm Juvenile Fillies Stakes Saturday. Making her second career start after a promising third place finish first time out at Keeneland, the chestnut filly broke on top and never looked back as she wired a field of 10 other two-year-old fillies going five furlongs over a firm turf course. She was piloted by jockey EDWIN GONZALEZ for trainer GEORGE WEAVER and the ownership group of R.A. HILL STABLES, SWINBANK STABLES, BLACKTYPE THOROUGHBREDS, RAP RACING, CHRIS MARA, BLACKRIDGE STABLES & AMY E. DUNNE.
We’d like to wish this talented filly and her connections all the best and safe travels to the Royal Ascot! We’d also like to say a special “congratulations” to our long-time client WHITEHALL LANE FARM as they are the breeders of CRIMSON ADVOCATE. The filly’s dam Citizen Advocate has a 2023 colt at her side by Wavertree grad LEINSTER and is going to fellow grad COLONEL LIAM this spring.
