Cambodia

After spending much of her spring and summer shipping to regional races from the pastoral Fair Hill training center in Maryland, Cambodia capitalized on her first trip to the West Coast by capturing the Yellow Ribbon Handicap at Del Mar Aug.5.

The triumph was a milestone for owner Don Robinson, a lifelong horseman specializing in raising and selling Thoroughbreds at his Winter Quarter Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. His star graduate is Hall of Famer Zenyatta, winner of the 2009 Breeders’ Cup Classic against males.

Robinson has campaigned some of his own horses but none as accomplished as Cambodia. His homebred winners include her dam Sassifaction and his connection to the family extends to Cambodia’s grandmother Lonely Fact, who Robinson raised and consigned to Keeneland’s September yearling sale in 1996.

Robinson worked in Charlie Whittingham’s Del Mar stable in 1966 and returned to see Zenyatta win one of three renewals of the Clement L. Hirsch Stakes.

“I’ve had this filly’s entire family, it’s the ultimate breeder’s reward,” he said after the Yellow Ribbon. “This is the biggest thrill of my life. This is only my third visit and it’s an amazing thrill to come here and win this race.”

Cambodia, who repeated her Yellow Ribbon victory one race later in the John C. Mabee Stakes Sept. 2, was co-bred by Robinson and Eric Kronfeld’s Maverick Productions, which also bred Zenyatta. Kronfeld died in 2013 at age 71.

A victory by Cambodia, who has been based in California since July, would give Tom Proctor his second win from 11 starts at the World Championships. While it has been since 1994 — One Dreamer in the Distaff — Proctor’s horses have held their own, with two other top-three finishes, including Marketing Mix, second in the 2012 Filly & Mare Turf, and Keertana, third in the same event in 2010.
