What’s new at the Harness Racing Museum?


Hall of Fame broodmare Stienam's Place died Saturday night at Kentuckiana Farms in Lexington due to complications from colic. She was 25.
A daughter of Artsplace, Stienam's Place hailed from a successful filly family and continued the line by producing the winners of $4.6 million. But first, she was top stakes winner on the track. As a 3 year old she won the Breeders Crown, Jugette and Garnsey Memorial while racing for owners Barry Guariglia, Peter Goulazian and James Greenwald and trainer Bruce Riegle. Jack Moiseyev drove the Filly to her greatest victories.
After taking a mark of 1:50.4 in 1997 and banking $1,402,301 in purse winnings, Stienam's Place was retired to life as a broodmare at Kentuckiana Farms, which became partners in the mare with Guariglia's Green Mountain Farm.
Stienam's Place immediately began continuing the success of her maternal line, which began with $1.3 million winner Stienam and continued with her Nihilator-sired daughter Stienam's Girl, the dam of Stienam's Place. Stienam's Place first foal was the filly Donkeys Can Talk, and later daughters were Showherthemoney p, 1:49 ($871,161) and Put On A Show p, 1:47.3 ($2,406,628).
She has produced 13 foals, with 10 starters earning $4,675,536 thus far. Her 2018 yearling, a colt by Somebeachsomewhere, was purchased as a yearling for $100,000 by Winchester Baye Acres.
Stienam's Place was buried next to Kentuckiana's pacing stallion Jate Lobell.
