A colt with a future and had been working nicely coming into the race. It was sad to lose Lady Liberty earlier in the year.

Snap Decision was 2nd in the 7th at Belmont, but I think he may have been best. He got badly blocked through much of the stretch, but came running when he finally got room.

Wondering if ASTICOU TRAIL is ok. 3yo filly

She usually does pretty well and was one of the favorites in this race, yet finished last.

Chart said the she " set the pace for three quarters then stopped."

on Sunday morning, Carrumba put in her best piece of work this year in preparation for the Fleur de Lis handicap at Churchill Downs. Fingers crossed that she will continue to improve off her distant 2nd in a Gr.3 at Pimlico.

Good win for Bombs Away earlier today, on his turf debut.

As always, looking forward to Saratoga. A couple of nice 2yo fillies to look out for; Closing Statement and Barrier Island. Personal Time has also been working quite well.

Also excited to see how Browse fares given the lack of running room on her turf debut and whether Parade can follow up after her encouraging run on the dirt.

Looking forward to the 2 year olds. Personal Time a full to Orb and Emancipation, who looks like a runner, can't wait.

I would love to see one of those War Front 5 year olds win a stake race..

Recollection was retired earlier in the year and was covered by Medaglia d' Oro.

Carrumba is due to retire at the end of this year. Browse will also be retained at the end of her career, although when that is will largely depend on how she fares on the turf.

Nothing has been decided on the remaining four year olds; Dancing All Night (runs on monday), Vagabond and Blenheim Palace who may prove difficult to spot for a second win.

Of the remaining 3 year olds; Conspiring (runs on monday) reverts to the dirt and it will be fun to see what Parade can do when she runs again over the summer.

Emancipation is nominated to the Curlin stakes, although Shug has options to keep the colt to an allowance.c

The current foal crop is a really nice group, so hopefully plenty to look forward too in the coming years.

Seems to be a little seconditis in the Shug barn. Hopefully that leads to wins in the second half of the Saratoga meet and good fall. Revved Up looked great and Browse ran her eyeballs out second time on the turf.

Nice win for Parade Yesterday. She got a good set up and won like a horse with a future. Hopefully that is a sign that the barn is going to turn some of those seconds and thirds earlier in the meet into wins.

Looks like Pendant My Flag's 2014 colt by Bernardini is ready to make his first start
Wednesday in a MSW at Belmont. PP 5 in a field of five, all of whom have starts behind them.
