She ran a great race. I am a big fan of Oisin Murphy, but he held her up for an awfully long time behind a wall of horses, by the time he pulled her out and got rolling, it was too late . Not sure she could have beat Magical in a fight, but she could have been 2nd. Hopefully Champion Stakes is next...

Hey tachyon, do you know if Arrow Stud has a website?
They don't have their own website.
But you may find their stallion roaster in the link below.

Agreed! and I hope Shadai will read this, too. The 17-year-old son of Pulpit has been standing for $300,000 s...

G1 winners

She Will Reign(AUS) --> Heart's Cry(JPN) (in foal)
Single Gaze(AUS) --> Lord Kanaloa(JPN) (in foal)
From memory they were both sold to Japan so I assume these are NH time foals?
Yes. Both are NH time foals.
