By Kathy Hanrahan

Raleigh, N.C. — The WRAL Freedom Balloon Fest is May 22-25, 2015, in Zebulon and Raleigh. There are so many things happening that we decided to give you the best bets for each day.

Note: Everything that involves balloons is wind and weather permitting.

Friday, May 22

Where should you go? Head to Bennett Bunn Plantation, 1915 Old Bunn Road in Zebulon

Where should you park? Starting at 2 p.m., you can park at the home of the Mudcats – Five County Stadium, 1501 NC-39. Parking is $10 and proceeds go to The Raleigh Jaycees. There will be a shuttle running to the Bennett Bunn Plantation, which is about two miles away. There is limited on-site Premium Parking for $30/car (cash only) with a portion of proceeds going to The Raleigh Jaycees.

When? Gates open at Bennett Bunn Plantation at 3 p.m.

What's going on? Hang in the vendor village to get some shopping done. There will be food and a beer garden there. The opening ceremonies will be around 5 p.m. followed by a mass ascension of more than 40 balloons around 6:30 p.m. That's when all of the balloons fly at the same time. (Bring a camera!) Around 8 p.m., the balloons will stick around for a Balloon Glow, which is when they light the balloons. Things will wrap up around 9:30 p.m. Bring a camera, bring a small, folding chair or blanket, but please no coolers or pets.

Dayatthespa Earns Female Turf Eclipse

Yet to start in the first seven months of the 2014 season, New York-bred mare Dayatthespa was not on any short lists for an Eclipse Award. By the time she crossed the finish line in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf (gr. IT) at Santa Anita Park following an authoritative front-running triumph, however, it was apparent she had distanced herself from the others.

The division was so open that four others, including defending female turf Eclipse champion Dank, would have had a legitimate claim to the crown with victory in the Filly & Mare Turf. But none could catch the Chad Brown-trained Dayatthespa, who dictated the pace for jockey Javier Castellano to open a two-length advantage midstretch in her first try at the 1 1/4-mile distance. The 5-year-old daughter of City Zip   strode home gamely under urging at 11-2 odds to score by 1 1/4 lengths over her late-running stablemate, Stephanie's Kitten, in a time of 2:00.12 over a course rated good.

Dayatthespa won the final three of a four-race campaign in 2014, which began with a runner-up finish in the restricted Fasig-Tipton De La Rose Stakes Aug. 2 at Saratoga Race Course, the race venue for which she was named. The powerful chestnut with a long white blaze then dominated Saratoga's Yaddo Stakes for state-breds before setting the table for her Breeders' Cup effort with a 1 1/4-length tally in the one-mile First Lady Stakes (gr. IT) at Keeneland.

She earned $1.45 million during the season for owners Jerry Frankel, Ronald Frankel, Steve Laymon, and Bradley Thoroughbreds. Dayatthespa defeated finalists Crown Queen and Stephanie's Kitten in the Eclipse voting.

Bred by Castellare DiCracchiolo Stable, Cracchiolo, and Goldsher out of the Doc's Leader mare M'Lady Doc, Dayatthespa also had a grade I victory at Keeneland in the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup in 2012.

Her career line after four years of racing stands at 11 wins and four seconds in 18 starts with earnings of $2,288,892. Two days after her Breeders' Cup win, Dayatthespa sold for $2.1 million to Barbara Banke during the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky fall mixed sale and will be bred to Curlin   this season.

Voting (Only first-place votes from members of the consolidated voting entities: National Thoroughbred Racing Association, Daily Racing Form, and National Turf Writers and Broadcasters):

Dayatthespa, 260; Crown Queen, 2; Coffee Clique, 1; Room Service, 1. Voter Abstentions, 1.

Kentucky Derby Horse has Connections to NCTA Member 
We Miss Artie ... will race in the Derby this year and Hubert Vester, of Nashville plans to travel to watch the race. . The horse is the colt of a horse owned by Vester. . Vester said he purchased a broodmare, Russian Bride, in 2001 and bred her her in 2004, to the 2000 Derby winner, Fusaichi Pegasus. . Athena's Gift was born in 2005, sold as a yearling at the 2006 Keeneland September Yearling Sale in Lexington, Kentucky. She was bought by Canadian, Richard Lister. . Vester said that Athena's Gift had a career ending injury, was retired and became a broodmare. When Lister retired in 2013, he sold off his band of brood mares at the Keenland November Breeding Stock Sale. That is when Hubert Vester bought back the mare, Athena's Gift. . We Miss Artie is her colt, sired by *Artie Schiller. Vester said. We Miss Artie is now owned by Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey and trained by Todd Pletcher, that colt is running this Saturday, the first Saturday in May. . When We Miss Artie was born, there were around 37,000 Thoroughbreds born the same year. Only three-year- olds can compete in the Derby, so a horse gets one chance only. We Miss Artie won the Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park in March, which qualifies him for the 2014 Derby. . "A horse only gets one shot to win a Derby" Vester said. "The next year, he's too old." . Vester considers himself a small Thoroughbred owner and breeder, but he's well known in the industry. In 2011 he was named the North Carolina Thoroughbred Association's owner and breeder of the year. . We Miss You Artie was bred for the turf, so Vester said the dirt track might prove to be a slight handicap. But he is proud that the horse has qualified to run this year in the Derby, having won the Spiral Stakes. . "If he ends up dead last, you still got a special horse," he said. "Anything can happen." . Hubert Vester plans to attend the May 3rd Derby and is excited about being there. . "I always said I wouldn't go unless I had one in it and I guess this is as close as I'll get," Vester said. . E. S. Williams *The sire Artie Schiller has North Carolina roots. He was bred by and owned by the late Tom Walsh. His wife Denise of Southern Pines, NC, still own shares in the stallion.
