Question. What year did Hard Spun ship to Japan for the northern hemisphere breeding season? I am trying to figure out when we will see a gap in American runners for him. I am thinking it was 2014, but am not sure. If that is correct, we won't see any 2yo runners for him this year.

ROCKETRY is entered in race #8, an allowance, at Saratoga this Friday. 1-3/8 miles on the turf. Same distance that he won that maiden race so smartly. Last race he got into some trouble in the stretch. Hoping for trouble free run this time. He has some talent I think. What is with Hard Spun getting so many long winded runners when some said he couldn't get 1 1/4 miles. I never agreed with that assessment. He finished 2nd in the KD and BCC in front of a lot of horses who did win at that distance. I think he would have, too, if he had not retired when he did. I am looking forward to this race as much as seeing TIMELINE in the Haskell.

I remember what TVG's Rich Perloff said years ago when Hard Spun first retired to stud. He was excited about the colt's future at stud and, as a son of Danzig, thought he would likely get runners on dirt and grass. He was prophetic, IMHO, as we have seen Hard Spun have success at stud all over the world.

Rocketry had an awesome win in race #8 at Saratoga this afternoon. 1 3/8 miles on the turf. His record is now 6-2-2-1. Another long-winded son for Hard Spun. And no DQ this time! Should also mention that he was running against older horses.

Preview of the Haskell
"If anyone puts on a show, it will be Timeline."
http://video.drf.com/detail/videos/drf- ... Start=true

Unfortunately he got off slowly then rushed up to catch the leaders then faded late. Finished 5th I think. :-(

The winning BSF for the race was 95. Not a particularly stellar performance for anyone in the race. Timeline has run faster than that before.

Singing Bullet finished 3rd in the G2 Amsterdam Stakes today at Saratoga. So he is now G2 placed. Another black type performer for Hard Spun. Hopefully Singing Bullet has a stakes win in his future.

Hardened had a nice maiden win in race #3 at Saratoga today. His record is now 2-1-0-0. He had the highest odds in the race at 10-1. Led the whole way and hung on by a nose.

Yikes, another longwinded baby. GRATEFUL won race #3 at Saratoga today. 1-1/2 miles on the inner turf. 2:27 and change. She was up against older and the only 3yo in the field of 5. Nice win! Her record is now 7-3-3-1. She has never raced on the dirt. I wonder why. Broodmare sire is Unbridled's Song.

She totally missed the break. Hopped way up in the air. When they show the head on replay of the break you can see how high she hopped. Must have thought she could fly! Lol! She ended up trailing the field by a good bit at first. Kind of impressive that she still won after playing catch up like that.

Race video will be here by tomorrow: http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/ ... -on-8-7-17

A comment at horseracingnation.com said that TIMELINE is pointed to the G1 PA Derby on Sept 23 instead of Travers.
The comment said that Chad Brown said this a couple days ago, though I haven't seen any official quotes from Chad.

SNAP DECISION is nominated to the Aug 26th G1 7 furlong H Allen Jerkins Memorial Stakes at Saratoga (formerly Kings Bishop Stakes).

Maryland Pride won a maiden race #1 at Laurel Park today. His record is now 4-1-1-0. Kind of cool, since it was Maryland Pride Day at Laurel.
