It was great to see Abaco win some more blacktype but it was a tough loss. She was much the best but that's racing. Good that the mare is back to form and if she comes out of the race well we may see her run next in the Athenia or wait for another minor stakes.

Orb, Imagining and Hymn Book are all due to run in Graded Stakes on Saturday. Boisterous could also run. Reload is being trained for Keeneland.

Glad to see the thread has been resurrected and pleased that it's in the horse racing section, where it belongs. I hope everyone is well.

Welcome Back Cladan! Great to see you here again.

So glad you're back Cladan - I was really wondering what the thoughts were on Sea Island's race. Glad to see so many will be running on Saturday...

Puzzling had been working very well on the all weather at Fair Hill throughout the summer. Her subsequent disappointment at Saratoga has seen her revert back to the dirt in her works. The mare is due to run in a minor stakes at Presque Isle Downs on Thursday and will make her race debut on the artificial main track. Puzzling got her blacktype on and off track, so fingers crossed that she runs well.

Admiral Perry gets another chance in a stakes and will ship to Delaware on the same day. Hopefully the horse will hit the board for the Janney colors.

Caxambas Pass will cut back in distance coming off her maiden win. Hopefully the filly will settle better than in previous races and is due to run on wedesday.

Glad that you are back Cladan. As usual, Thanks for your insights. looking forward to this weekend. I saw that Point of Entry had his second work since his injury. Does he have a realistic chance of making to a big race this year?

Well, wonder who decided to move the thread here???

Darn about Caxambas Pass - sounds like she got hung out wide the entire triip and just tired...

Disappointing effort by Puzzling but a game effort by Air Support. If you saw the races on tv - did anyone notice that they mixed up the Janney and Phipps silks that they sent to Delaware Park and Presque Isle Downs? Rosie N. wore the Phipps colors with the Janney white cap on Puzzling while Air Support's jockey wore the Janney colors with the Phipps cherry cap

Hopefully some better results tomorrow.

Hymn Book was a fast-closing third in the Kelso.

Hymn Book looked good. Hoping Orb is ok - looked like he bobbled when checked at the top of the stretch. The Triple Crown just takes so much out of the 3yr. olds...

Data Link has been retired and I will miss rooting for him. But, since he has been, I'm very excited about the news that he'll stand at Claiborne. Always happy to see more Alydar bloodlines and now they have 4 - Arch, Blame, Data Link and Parading...

Is anyone else surprised to see Boisterous in the Keeneland sale?
