Wednesday in a MSW at Belmont. PP 5 in a field of five, all of whom have starts behind them.

As I'm sure you are aware, Pendant is My Flag 's last foal.

Parade is also due to run on the same card and should be difficult to beat. Fingers crossed.

Pendant scratched out of the 1st, but Parade won very nicely in the 5th, a 1 1/16-mile Alw. on the dirt. She stayed along the rail, found just enough space and went through to win by open lengths.

The filly has been improving all summer and won nicely today. Dylan rides her well and she looks to have a future.

Fly So High is due to debut soon and has been working nicely.

If not something official, is there a site from their trainer or even a fan site?


No official site.

Not too sure how many people read this thread anymore but a couple of points to make:

Carrumba and Blenheim Palace returned to Claiborne some time ago. Parade, Vagabond and Browse remain in training and each have a couple of wins so far. Hopefully, the fillies can add some blacktype as all 3 are due to be added to the broodmare band, all being well.

Fly So High just ran an encouraging 3rd on her debut and makes up a pretty good group of 2yo fillies. Barrier Island was an unlucky 2nd on her debut a while back, running green down the lane and was just caught near the wire. Closing Statement also ran 2nd on her turf debut earlier this pm. Add Tactical Affair and the exciting Cover Model to the list, hopefully there is plenty to look forward too.

I watched Fly So High's race today and she really did look good coming down the stretch. Hopefully, good things ahead for her and the other young fillies.

Thanks for the update, Cladan. I think TBC in general has lost a lot of posters, but I make an effort to keep up with this thread. I love that you share news about the stable, especially about the mares. I'm looking forward to hearing about the stable's breeding plans.

I thought Fly So High ran pretty well but the gallop out was impressive.

So sorry to hear this. My condolences to everyone at the farm and all who loved her. She was so special! Paulick re-published my favorite photo of her (below).

Browse (Medaglia d'Oro - Daydreaming by A.P. Indy) looked good winning an Allowance by 1 1/2 at Keeneland today. After having trouble in her previous race, she got a good ride by Jose Ortiz.

Hi Cladan:

Do you know if ASTICOU TRAIL(3yo filly Hard Spun x Carriage Trail) is retired?

She stopped racing in June of 2017 and no published works since then.
