Donate Life, 2 yo filly, promotes organ transplant program awareness! #donatelifeKY

Brad Holsclaw, a longtime friend, born and KY raised, and I (Hank Nothhaft) had been looking for an opportunity to partner on a race horse in order to enjoy the camaraderie and excitement of thoroughbred horse racing. Late last fall, Phil Schoenthal, a successful trainer, based at Fair Hill Training Center approached us with the opportunity to partner with him in a Keeneland September Sale purchase.

Donate Life Pony Training Fair Hill Training Center

We all agreed on a “deal” and the partnership was born. Our filly is by leading sire Munnings out of War Front mare named Quargent. Another plus was her VA breeding, as we participate in the VA Certification program and race at Colonial Downs. We believe Donate Life was purchased at a bargain price during one of those holes in the market that occurs during all major auctions that span a number of days.

Donate Life. APR 2023 Fair Hill
Donate Life 2yo Munnings filly Fair Hill

Phil was designated to name our new filly. The name Donate Life was born. Per Phil, “Having a child who received a life saving heart transplant, we always strive to raise awareness of the importance of organ donation programs.” This name made us even more anxious for “Donate” to be successful to support our higher mission to generate some positive awareness for these worthwhile programs.

Donate Life has trained forwardly since shipping into Fair Hill Training Center. Donate Life has not missed a day since arriving and earned her gate qualification without difficulty. As the first two year old races became available, it was clear Donate Life was fit and ready to go. Of the several options available, Keeneland was chosen as the most attractive locale to debut. Keeneland’s Spring Meet provides a global stage for the horse racing industry.

Donate Life is entered to run at Keeneland May 28th is Race 2, a 4.5 furlong dirt sprint with 12 entries and an $80,000. Based on her encouraging work tab at Fair Hill, Donate Life was assigned 6:1 Morning Line Odds. In advance of the race, we have been in touch with #donatelifeKY, brainstorming to see how Donate Life can generate awareness before and after the race. Stay tuned.

Living Magic’s PARX debut 1st Justify North American 2 yo starter 2023

Living Magic (KY) chilling @FairHillTrainingCenter

Living Magic, a 2 yo filly by Triple Crown Winning Sire #Justify o/o Multiple Graded Stakes Winning Mare Living the Life, makes her career debut @PARX on Monday, May 1st, in a 4.5 furlong dirt sprint against 7 other first time starters. Just to spice things up, Living Magic (KY) is Justify’s first 2yo starter in North America from his second crop born in 2021.

Living Magic (KY) 16’1″ filly by Justify heading for track for #PhilSchoenthal

#LivingMagic, born on January 22nd, 2021, is a homebred for Hank Nothhaft’s HnR Nothhaft Horse Racing LLC. Living Magic (KY) was foaled and raised @Coolmore America in Versailles, KY, under the watchful eye of Brian Tormey and his staff. Her name derives from her mare (Living the Life (IRE), and the first dam of Justify, Stage Magic. Living the Life was campaigned by Hank Nothhaft, a native of PA, and raced in PA three times @PresqueIsleDowns in Erie, PA, winning the Grade 2 Master’s Stakes twice with one 2nd place finish. Since Living the Life was so effective on the A/W surfaces, it is often overlooked that LTL is Graded Stakes placed on the dirt, as well as a winner on the turf. LTL started 4 times as a 2 yo in the UK, winning one, 2nd once, all on the turf. It seems fitting that Living Magic (KY) would race first time out in the Keystone State.

Justify and Hank Discussing future plans

In late summer 2022, Living Magic (KY) shipped to VA for initial training and VA certification at Karen Godsey’s @EaglePointFarm. Once initial training and VA certification was complete, Living Magic (KY) shipped to Phil Schoenthal’s barn @FairHillTrainingCenter in Elkton, MD.

Given her size, 16’1″ hands, training proceeded with caution and the thought that large horses generally take more time to “come around” and are often subject to minor setbacks that delays their first start. Living Magic (KY) proceeded to train forwardly .According to trainer Phil Schoenthal “Living Magic (KY) has never had a bad day since she has been here.” As her training has proceeded uninterrupted, Jockey Victor Carrasco has been on board for Living Magic (KY) timed works at FAI.

Once Living Magic (KY) was gate certified and fit for a 4/5-5 fl 2yo MSW, options were weighed for her first start. Various tracks were evaluated for her first start. Hank, in particular wanted to avoid a long ship before her first start. Laurel Park was designated the primary target. Once the track issues at Laurel scrambled the racing schedule there, PARX became the most attractive destination. No one knows what career awaits Living Magic (KY), but she has shown a lot of talent and competitive fire in works so far. If Living Magic (KY) can avoid the injury bug, a successful career likely awaits her. Monday will be a first step.

OZONE PARK, N.Y.— The old saying, which has proved to be true for us, is you never know where the horses will take you. After 526 starts in the US, Prodigy Doll will take us to Aqueduct Park in Ozone New York Saturday for the Correction Stakes for trainer Phil Schoenthal. Trevor McCarthy has the ride on Prodigy Doll who, last time out, could not overcome a rail post position which led to a troubled trip in the Grade 3 Barbara Fritchie Stakes 3 weeks agol

Prodigy Doll Impressive Allowance Win
Prodigy Doll surges to an allowance optional claiming victory Jan. 7 (Jim McCue)

Excerpt from Keith McCalmont NYRA Article

“HnR Nothhaft Horse Racing’s stakes-winner Prodigy Doll [post 3, Trevor McCarthy] makes her first start in New York for trainer Phil Schoenthal.

The 5-year-old Shanghai Bobby mare, who sports a ledger of 19-4-4-1 for purse earnings of $248,820, has competed mainly on the Maryland circuit over the past year. She captured a six-furlong optional-claimer two starts back on January 7 at Laurel Park, scoring by two-lengths over Response Time, who has since posted back-to-back wins.

Prodigy Doll, who won the 2021 Cheryl S. White Memorial at Mahoning Valley Race Course, enters from a troubled fifth in the seven-furlong Grade 3 Barbara Fritchie on February 18 at Laurel where she was steadied leaving the five-eighths and failed to fire when roused for a wide run.

Bred in Kentucky by Tolo Thoroughbreds and Michael A. Spirito, Prodigy Doll is out of the Silver Deputy mare Hi Lili, who is a half-sister to graded-stakes winner Blind Date and multiple stakes-winner Sales Tax.”
