FINALLY! They put her back on the all weather at Keeneland. She ran so well here in the Ashland Stakes.


Robby is back on her too. The field doesn't look to be that tough, this years Ashland winner is in the race, but... I don't think she is as talented as her her stablemate Close Hatches, Princess and Beholder.


I think she likes the track. She had a bullet work there back in the spring 4 furlongs in 46 and change; fastest of 62. And she scored her highest speed figure ever there when she ran in the Ashland stakes. There is an article about the race on Bloodhorse.com and I think it mentioned every horse in the race except her. It's like she's invisible. I would love to see her break through and win a G1

Seems like he's figuring this business out. He's got 3 wins and 2 seconds in his last five races. I wonder why they want to give up and sell him after only 8 races.

Because the owner is a stronach investment fund that had a business plan outlined in a prospectus that stated the plan was to purchase yearlings, race them through their 3 year season then look to sell them.

Ah, okay, thanks. Seemed odd to me to put a horse up for sale just when he starts to win, but I understand the "plan" now.

Not sure where she finished but I think Lila was mid pack in the Spinster.
