Perhaps there was no stallion over Preakness weekend that made more noise across the country than Forestry, whose progeny racked up seven wins as well as a stakes placing on the Preakness undercard at Pimlico.

Streetscape, a 4-year-old filly, finished a solid runner-up for her second consecutive stakes start in the Skipat S. on that all-important Preakness card in Baltimore, moving her earnings to $118,960. Further south, Southern Style strolled to an impressive 6 ½-length victory in an allowance race at Louisiana Downs. The 5-year-old is s stakes winner that possesses career earnings of $167,220.

On Friday, Forestry Type continued his emergence as a future stakes performer, as the 3-year-old colt impressively captured his third win from five starts, winning a $30,500 allowance race by 2 ¾ lengths at Arlington Park. He now owns back-to-back allowance scores by 6 ¼ lengths.

Sunday was Forestry’s biggest day with three flashy winners from California to New York. Graysonia, a 3-year-old, broke through in a $50,000 maiden special weight, zipping six furlongs in 1:09.83 and earning an 85 Beyer Speed Figure. The talented bay has bankrolled $43,005.

At Churchill Downs, West Express streaked to a 6 ¼-length victory and moved his earnings to $134,103, while at Golden Gates in California Meili, a 4-year-old filly, was never challenged in her 2 ¼-length front-running score in a maiden special weight race.
