Re: Across the pond

This is beyond devastating. I so hoped he was in the clear at this point. My heart goes out to his connections, losing him at just the beginning of what looked such a promising stud career is just simply unfair.

This year has sucked a lot. So many huge losses in racing. Rest in Peace, Champ.

Re: Across the pond

The plan for Stradivarius is the Champion Stayers (GI) in Ocotber at Ascot, then they plan to keep him in training next season and follow the same route as the past 2 years but go for the Arc as opposed to the Londsdale Cup.

Re: Across the pond

Frankie Dettori very emotional after the race, expressed how special Enable is to him. I really want her to get that 3rd Arc but she has already stamped herself as an all time great and I’m looking forward to seeing how she does as a broodmare. I suspect she’ll be seeing Dubawi at stud as her first ...

Just to be clear, @ShamIAmNot is a satire account so that tweet was meant as a joke.

But maybe you all already knew that and I just misinterpreted it ;)

Bodemeister in the 2012 Kentucky Derby.

Re: The Saudi cup

The well known jockeys publicly stating that the track and footing is perfect in every way made me lol. Because if anyone will tolerate a dissenting opinion, it's the royal family of Saudi Arabia. Baffert said its to deep a track for a horse to run in the Saudi Cup and then make it to the Dubai WC ...

Re: The Million Dollar G1 Whitney Stakes

I thought that looked a very comfortable win for McKinzie, no doubt he’s a very talented horse!

Also in the Test (GI) before, what a battle between Covfefe and Serengeti Empress!! Bellafina in 3rd, looks like they caught up to her.

Re: Across the pond

Also just want to say, John Gosden is such a classy trainer! Always praising his staff and just now after TDH's win he was being interviewed by ITV and he asked them to interview one of his staff Maisie instead, she rides TDH at home so John said she deserved all the credit.
