Long on Value is Value Plus' most accomplished runner to date. MGSW and multiple G1 placed, this horse exhibits many of the same tenacious qualities of his sire. He is being prepared for a 2018 campaign by Brad Cox.
30 starts - 7 wins - 5 seconds - 5 thirds Earnings: $981,693
Career Highlights: MGSW, multiple G1 placed
Value Plus sired his first millionaire, as the MGSW Long On Value, won the Mighty Beau Overnight Stakes at Churchill Downs, June 2.
June 30 brings even more excitement as Long On Value is slated to start in the G1 Highlander Stakes at Woodbine. If he should take this race, it will be his first Grade 1 win! The Highlander has additional significance, as it is a Breeders’ Cup ‘Win and You’re In’ race!

Extreme Caution, 6 yo. mare by Value Plus, notched her 8th win overall, and first this year, in the 6th race at Prairie Meadows on April 27, 2018. She broke second in this 6 furlong starter alllowance race on the dirt, and then made the lead, never to relinquish it; finishing 1 1/4 lengths ahead of Archie's Girl.
Her victory added $11,700 to Extreme Caution's bankroll for 2018, which now stands at $15,100. Her win puts her overall record at 33-8-6-1, with total earnings of $76,504.
The hard-trying mare is having a solid 2018 campaign so far, and is well on her way to becoming yet another $100,000 earner for her sire.
A fun double for Stride Away Thoroughbreds at Fonner Park, in Race 8, on March 24. We used to own Gottcha Gold, and retained an interest in him, as we believe in him as a stallion. He sired the winner in this hotly contested race!
In Race 8, Hows My Gold (by Gottcha Gold), and Extreme Caution (by Value Plus) had a tough battle in the stretch! Hows My Gold got up right at the end, giving Stride Away a fun, unique 'double'!
We're proud of both stallions' progeny that raced bravely that day!
