Sunday, Dec. 3:
REDDAM RACING LLC’s talented gelding TODAY’S FLAVOR (’18 Laoban / Evangelical) took down the 2023 running of the New York Stallion Series Stakes in splashy fashion Sunday at Aqueduct.
Breaking sharply from the eight-hole in a field of eight, TODAY’S FLAVOR wasted no time clearing the field and crossing over to the rail to set the early fractions. However, when challenged to a speed duel by another foe, jockey JAVIER CASTELLANO opted to relinquish the lead and sit patiently in second until turning into the stretch. He then tipped TODAY’S FLAVOR to the outside of the leader and drew off to a 3½ length score.
Handled masterfully by trainer GEORGE WEAVER, the five-year-old has won eight out of thirteen starts since joining the conditioner’s barn in the fall of 2022. Ten of those starts were made this year resulting in 6 trips to the winner’s circle. His lifetime record now stands at 188.8.131.52 with earnings of $545,080.
We wish this classy horse and all his connections the very best of luck in 2024!
