Richard Mandella said this morning that Setsuko is back at the track galloping, had been recovering from a suspensory injury. When asked what his plans were for him, he said that they were doing the Seabiscuit thing and want to eventually win the Big Cap with him :)

From Brisnet

Bluestone Thoroughbreds' Black Diamond Cat (Wildcat Heir) captured his third stakes on the season with an authoritative 5 3/4-length decision in Saturday's $100,000 Montbrook, a one-mile test for Florida-breds at Gulfstream Park. Guided by Jilver Chamafi, the six-year-old gelding completed the trip over a fast track in 1:37 1/5. Trained by Larry Bates, Black Diamond Cat had previously taken June 8 Ponche H. at Calder and the August 3 Housebuster S. at Gulfstream at odds of 13-1 and 19-1, respectively. Only 5-2 to take the Montbrook, the bay elevated his career record to 49-9-11-5, $462,454.

Congrats to the 8 year old Immortal Eyes, one of my very favorite geldings, on his win in the Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash today. He won in a hand ride by almost 7 lengths.

This was his 17th win in 47 starts, and the winner's share of the $350k purse bumped him up over the $1 million mark :D

I still can't believe he was 9-1. He's better than he's ever been.

* Looking at that photo of Homeboy Kris, it appears that he has an X nose band criss-crossing over his nose, which pretty much keeps a horse's mouth shut. All he could really do was bare his teeth at Froggy (who, I notice, wears the same sort of nose band). Which he certainly did...with bad intent.
* Still, Froggy could not have known that he was safe, and felt like he was about to get bitten. :o

Successful Dan likely done for year. No BC, nor, it seems, Fayette. LoPresti said today he's tired, may get rest of year off. #breederscup

The odds-on favorite in the race, Eastwood, was a Pletcher 3yo with two lifetime starts. I hope he was taking notes.
