Re: Hard Spun Foals

NECKER ISLAND nominated to G3 Swale at Gulfstream on Feb 1. Necker Island beat Silver State by a nose in an allowance. Silver State(by Hard Spun) ran a good 2nd this past weekend in the G3 LeComte. GREEN LIGHT GO nominate to both G3 Swale and Holly Bull at Gulfstream on Feb 1. More likely for Swale...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

SPUN TO RUN was supposed to workout today for the Pagasus. Wonder if this was delayed due to the jockey switch.

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

He won the Lecomte (G3). I think that’s 3 SWs today for Tapit (and he’s the broodmare sire of Silverbulletday winner Finite). That makes what, 4 graded stakes winners and 5 winners from 5 foals to race for Justwhistledixie? I swear she shits solid gold. What a shame that New Year's Day was exported...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Silver State finished second in the Lecomte. He really got boxed in during the stretch run and had to wait for running room, which gave the winner a jump on him. A better trip and he might have won. He also stumbled at the start and didn't get off well, so he was farther back than I expected him to...

HIDDEN SCROLL late scratch. Fractiois in gate. Reared up and threw jockey. Hope both are okay.

thanks for info. Just turned in to watch the race and see there is a delay and he's scratched. I guess they delayed the race after he reared.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

GREEN LIGHT GO has been working regularly at Gulfstream Feb 1 is G3 Swale Stakes at 7 furlongs at Gulfstream and also 1 1/16 mi G3 Holy Bull. Maybe GREEN LIGHT GO will be nominated. My bet is the 7 furlong Swale since he's coming off a layoff and longest race is 1 mile so far. Nominations aren't lis...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

LUCULLAN no longer pointing toward the Pegasus Turf. Makes sense since he was so low on the alternate list. Wonder where he's headed next. Ditto for A Thread Of Blue, who didn't run so well off the pace in the last race. Was it the extended time off, or does he need the lead? His speed figures were ...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

We have some good ones to look forward to seeing run this year. Very exciting. I am wondering what is going on with Spinoff . SPINOFF dropped off the radar Sept 2019. I keep checking for workouts or news stories and cannot find anything. Not sure whether he's taking a layoff, was injured or retired...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Wonder what's next for A Thread of Blue now that he missed a race. Wonder if they'll still point to the Pegasus Turf in 4 weeks. That's a long layoff for such a big race. His last race was 10/5. Looking at his PP, he ran very well ~60 days between races.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Appears A Thread Of Blue has been scratched from the Tropical Park Derby today. He had drawn the 14 post position, and wide posts have a low win percentage at Gulfstream. That may have factored. Also the Pegasus Turf is only 4 weeks away and if they are serious about that race, that would be a quic...
