A true route race- you don't see too many of those anymore- unless it's jumps.

Good luck to Gold Shield

Stronach's own royally-bred Singing Bullet (Hard Spun x Life At Ten) runs in an optional claimer at Gulfstream tomorrow. He may run in the Pegasus if he turns in a good effort per trainer Dale Romans:
Singing Bullet enters his 3-year-old finale off a 3 1/4-length optional-claiming victory over Conquest Windycity going a mile last month at Churchill Downs, for which he earned a career-best 95 Beyer Speed Figure.

As for the Pegasus World Cup, Romans said a good performance here Friday could earn Singing Bullet a slot in the event on Jan. 27.

“I know he doesn’t have the credentials of a lot of those horses who’ll be in the race, but we’re a horse going up and maybe we can catch some of the others going down,” Romans said. “Strange things can happen in a race like that, as we know.”

Bernadiva (Bernadini x Evening Jewel) finished 5th today in the Tropical Park Oaks. Even though she's raced at Gulfstream before I never noticed a daughter of Evening Jewel in any races - really liked her mom).

Earned another check. Finished third as the 5/2 favorite.

There has never been a greater argument in favor of exchange wagering than Ziconic.

Ax Man was really impressive. IMO, he looks very little like Misremembered (which is fine with me :P ) and more like his female side of the family.

I think that was the first of the restricted MSW's at Santa Anita, designed to give small barns a chance to run without facing monsters from the big barns. So who wins it? Baffert. (The restrictions are sale price $100,000 or less, or homebred.) Can't win for losing.

I always liked Misremembered and although he hasn't been much of a sire (possibly because he had a funkyish way of going IIRC) he had quite a bit of talent and has the right to sire a good one.

That really is funny, Ritvo created the anti-BB rule specifically so that homebreds and less expensive maidens wouldn't have to run against the multi-million dollar auction winners. Guessing a guy like Zito would love to see a similar condition on the east coast, probably call it the anti-TP rule ;)

Ohbytheway, AX MAN got a 96 BSF for his initial outing.

Admittedly Ax Man met the spirit as well as the letter of the restriction--from a small breeder by an inexpensive stallion. At least BB didn't dip in with a Juddmontr homebred! :lol:

Gentildonna's full 3yo sister has passed her gate test and is progressing with training. One to look forward to in 2018

I think she looks like a feminine version of her sire, definitely. Wish she had a name though! :mrgreen:
