current crop

Challenge currently has ten syndicates; eight of the syndicates have fillies & mares of racing age.  The current racing-age crop consists of 4 two-year-olds, a trio of three-year-olds and a four-year-old.  All-but-two of this bunch are UNRACED (those that have raced are noted below). 

As the unraced horses commence their respective careers, lookout for updates here.
