Metro Meteor went on to win several races as a three year old. He defeated older horses and open-company horses at Belmont and Saratoga. He established himself as one of the top turf sprinters on the East Coast. In December, 2006, Cizi won her debut race in MSW company by 4 ½ lengths at Aqueduct.
With the success of Metro and then Cizi, Rick has continued his efforts to develop Obviously NY. Working with Dave as well as Linda and Gus Schoenborn, Rick has developed Obviously NY into several discreet partnerships.
OBVIOUSLY NY I: consisted of Metro Meteor and Cizi (both retired) and is no longer an active partnership.
OBVIOUSLY NY II: consists of "Canadian Ballet." Former horses, "Bar City" and "City Sneakers" have been given to Clyde Rice.
OBVIOUSLY NY III: consisted of “Crafty NP” (given to Clyde Rice), “Piquante Cat” (claimed), and “Grey Expression” (deceased) and is no longer an active partnership.
OBVIOUSLY NY IV: consists of "Mother Russia" and "Saturdaynitesandy." Former horses, "Zipolina" (privately sold), "Ten Carrot Niki" (given to Clyde Rice), and "New York Thunder" (retired) are no longer in the partnership.
OBVIOUSLY NY V: consists of horses sired by City Zip, Here's Zealous, and Hook and Ladder. This partnership includes: "Hook Me Up," "Quick Money," "City Whisper," and "Kinda Phishy."
OBVIOUSLY NY VI: consists of horses sired by Two Punch and Bwana Charlie.
Each Obviously NY Partnership has several partners. The operation has attracted participants from all over New York State and from several other states.
