I believe American Pharoah will have his first starter in Dundalk on Friday evening. A colt out of the MGSW 'UP (IRE)', named HORUS BIRD, owned by Peter Brant and trained by Aidan O'Brien.

Congrats to American Pharoah and his human team on his first (of many) runner/winners! I'm sure his entire camp is breathing a sigh of relief right now.

Is there a replay link?

1st-AQU, $100K, Msw, 2yo, f, 4 1/2f, 1:30 p.m. EST

It’s been 37 years since foals from an American Triple Crown winner raced on U.S. soil, going back to when Seattle Slew’s initial crop of 2-year-olds hit the track in 1982. The wait is over, as American Pharoah’s first two Stateside runners are entered in the Wednesday opener at Aqueduct for trainer Wesley Ward. Only one is expected to run, however, and the filly will try to follow in the auspicious footsteps of Monarch of Egypt, who kicked things off for ‘Pharoah’ progeny Saturday at Naas in Ireland and was promptly named a ‘TDN Rising Star’ with a 2 3/4-length debut score (video).

With morning-line favorite and GISW Hootenanny (Quality Road) half-sister Lady Delaware expected to scratch, that leaves Ice Wine Stable’s TESORINA to carry the flag. The chestnut, bred by Ward, is out of GISW Nonsuch Bay (Mr. Greeley) and shares a second dam with MGSW/GISP Samraat (Noble Causeway). She’s trained steadily, and got a feel for the local track with a half-mile breeze in :50 flat (2/14) Apr. 14.

Looks like Maven is going on April 19.

Tesorina, American Pharoah's first U.S. starter (and o/o G1W Nonsuch Bay), finishes third on debut at #Aqueduct. Mo Mystery (Uncle Mo) won the MSW, with stablemate Micromillion (by freshman sire Micromanage) finishing second.

American Pharoah’s Maven Graduates at Big A
Maven (c, 2, American Pharoah–Richies Party Girl, by Any Given Saturday) became the first winner for the 2015 Triple Crown winner in the U.S. and second overall in the Friday opener at Aqueduct.

The 2-5 favorite broke sharply and was gunned to the front by Dylan Davis. Challenged by 21-1 longshot Lebda (Raison d’Etat), a $1,000 EASOCT graduate, at the top of the stretch, Maven kept finding down the lane to graduate by 3/4 of a length.

Maven became his site's first stakes winner! He took a G3 in France.

Also today, Monarch of Egypt became his site's first stakes horse when he finished second in the G2 Railway.

Two of American Pharoah's colts with A P O'Brien are running in tomorrow's 6f Kilminfoyle House Stud Irish EBF for 2 year old maidens: Hong Kong (colt out of Mekko Hokte) and South Saqqara (colt out of Global Finance)

Amusingly enough, this will be the second start for both colts, and both placed 7th in their debuts.

Holy Roman Empress is seeking her first win this Sunday 21 July in the The Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden at 6 furlongs
She placed 12th in her debut last month.

EDITED TO ADD

Seagal (filly out of Sunset Glow) will debut in an MSW at Indiana Grand Race Course this July 19th.

http://www.equibase.com/static/entry/IN ... html#RACE4

Seagal was a $160,000 purchase at OBS April 2019 2YO-in-training sale. She's the first foal out of the Exchange Rate mare Sunset Glow, who won the Grade 1 Del Mar Debutante and Grade 2 Sorrento Stakes as a 2-year-old, then never won again. She was 2nd in the 2014 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf to close out her juvenile year and placed in multiple graded stakes as a 3-yr-old. Sunseet Glow was sold at the end of her 3YO season for $1,375,000 and retired.

Trivia note: The owner of Sunset Glow during her racing years is also now the owner of Seagal.

Forgot to post this yesterday:

Updates to previous posts -

Seagal came in second in her debut.

Holy Roman Empress seems to have been dropped from the 21-July Stallion stakes and entered in the 25-July Jockey Club of Turkey Silver Flash Stakes (G3).
https://www.racingtv.com/racecards/leop ... es-group-3
I think this would be the third(?) Graded Stakes runner for AP. He currently has a G3 Winner (Maven) and a G2 Place (Monarch of Egypt).

Two more debuts and let's-try-him-on-turf-this-time 2nd race:

Skygaze (filly o/o Skyscrape) makes her debut 7/20 (Saturday) in an MSW on the turf at Woodbine 4:15pm local time EDIT - She came in 4th

American Butterfly (colt o/o Graceie's Butterfly) is making his debut in an MSW in Saratoga on 21-July (Sunday)

Another Miracle (colt o/o Retraceable) is running in an MSW at Saratoga on 24-July. He's being switched from dirt to turf after having come in 2nd on his debut July 4th. One wonders if the switch to turf was inspired by Sweet Melania getting her first win after having lost her first two races on the dirt.
