BaroqueAgain1 wrote:Minor Injury Forces Sharp Azteca To Skip Dubai Trip
Owner Ivan Rodriguez said Monday Cigar Mile winner Sharp Azteca will stay in the U.S. instead of shipping overseas to run in the Goldolphin Mile March 31st. Rodriguez told Daily Racing Form the 5-year-old son of Freud suffered a minor injury following a workout.
Sharp Azteca was last seen finishing eighth in the Pegasus World Cup in late January. He was extremely sharp in 2017, winning four graded stakes, including the Grade 1 Cigar Mile, and he finished second in the Breeders' Cup Mile.
“He came down with a little inflammation in his foot after his last work,” said Rodriguez. “The area scanned clear, but we didn't want to take a chance of sending him all the way over to Dubai then having to scratch him if it flared up again. We want to have a fresh horse for the rest of the year, so we've sent him to the farm for a little rest and will point for the Met Mile later this spring.”

Bummer but I'm glad they're being cautious, and if he can get some down time on the farm, it's a win for the horse too in my book.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Thanks for posting the entries, Stark. It's a very exciting card and I'm sorry I don't have TVG anymore to watch them.

Rayya is by Tiz Wonderful, out of (if I heard correctly) a Coronado's Quest mare. All US dirt breeding, so I wonder if we'll see her here in the Ky. Oaks?
Of course, Tiz Wonderful was shipped off to South Korea in 2014, another good stallion by Tiznow that IMHO was sold too soon. :roll:
Rare Rhythm beat Vazirabad in the Gold Cup.
