Cordmaker won the $100,000, 1 1/8 mile Richard W. Small Stakes at Laurel on Nov. 27.

Cordmaker, a 6-year-old gelding, settled near the pace, swung four wide entering the stretch, took control in mid stretch and was geared down to win by 1 3/4 lengths.

Cordmaker now has 11 wins, four seconds and seven thirds from 33 starts and $734,640 in earnings.

"He's a nice horse," said Jenkins. "He's easy to get along with and easy to train. I think there's another MATCH race coming up, so we may run him back in the MATCH series."

"Winter's coming, so we're gearing down," said Jenkins. "We have 17 in the barn now."


SY DOG, trained by Motion, won the $100,000, 1 1/16 miles Central Park Stakes on the turf for 2 year olds at Aqueduct on Nov. 27.

Sy Dog is now two for two, having won his first race, a maiden special weight, on Oct. 24.

He settled three wide near the back of the field, angled six wide into the stretch and just got up to win by a nose.

Bernie Houghton had two winners  at Penn National.

His own homebred On Island Times, owned by his WMT Stable, won a $27,100, 6 furlong Maiden Special Weight for fillies and Mares 3 and up by 2 1/4 lengths on Nov. 23.

Lee Glassberg's Cypt won an $18,800, 1 mile and 70 yards Claiming race after American Forces was disqualified, and then Crypt was claimed by Joseph Besecker to be trained by Brandon Kulp.

Jack Fisher saddled Bruton Street-US' Mystical Man to win a $63,440, 1 mile Allowance race on the turf  by 3/4 length at Laurel on Nov. 21.

This was Mystical Man's second Allowance win at Laurel after finishing second, also in an allowance race, after Fisher bought him for Bruton Street.

Michael Dickinson saddled Augustin Stable''s Royne, who is a homebred by George Strawbridge, to win an $80,000, 1 mile Maiden Special Weight on the turf for 3 year olds and up at Aqueduct on Nov. 20.

Royne won by a nose in his fifth start and now has a win and two seconds and earnings of $68,207.
