This Sunday Del Mar will run the Grade 3 La Jolla Handicap, a race that was won by Tranquility Farm retiree Marvin's Faith in 1994. Bred in Ireland, Marvin raced 29 times in North America with six wins including the Gr.2 Elkhorn Stakes at Keeneland, where he set a new course record for a mile and an eighth on the turf, and the Gr. 3 Bay Meadows Derby.
At age 19 Marvin is still a fit, happy horse, living the good life with his friends in Tranquility Farm's pastures. We call their run-in shed "millionair's row", but like most of our retired stars, Marvin didn't arrive here with a bag of all that money he made racing. For Marvin, and for all his many friends, we ask for your SUPPORT.
