It has been announced that beloved broodmare Doin The Town, 2, 1:57.3; 3, 1:54.2 ($475,274), passed from foaling complications on April 5.
Doin The Town was a stakes-winning daughter of Donerail and 12 time winner. She was a half-sister to Baltic Brat, 3, 1:57.3; 1:55.4s ($232,160), dam of Winbak Brat, 2, 1:57.3; 3, T1:54.3 ($242,851).
Doin The Town was owned through her racing and partly through her breeding career by the partnership of Barbara Baum and Joe Thomson (of Winbak Farm). When Barbara Baum passed away, Winbak Farm bought out the partnership.
During her racing career, she was trained by Wayne Nickells and later by Paula and William Wellwood.
At two, she won the Bluegrass Stakes, Kentucky Standardbred Sale Stakes, Merrie Annabelle Stakes elimination, and New Jersey Sire Stakes leg and final. She was second in the International Stallion Stakes.
At three, Doin The Town was a winner of Kentucky Futurity elimination and race-off. She also won the Simcoe Stakes. She was second in the Historic - Coaching Club Oaks Stakes leg, Matron Stakes elimination, three New Jersey Sire Stakes legs and a heat of the World Trotting Derby. As an aged racehorse, she was a multiple preferred winner.
The dam of nine foals, highlighted by Dancing In Thehall, 2, 1:55 -'15 ($75,958), who won the International Stallion Stakes at the Red Mile in 2015.
Her latest foal, a Lucky Chucky filly, will have high expectations for the New York Sire Stakes.
Her daughters, Dancing Slippers, Day At The Spa and Doin The City, will continue her legacy as Winbak Farm broodmares.
Doin The Town will be missed, but always remembered for the great memories she gave her partnership while racing.
