The easiest ones for me to find, New Zealand born Pharoah foals, there were 3 in 2018:
Colt out of Raskova (USA) (by Henrythenavigator) born 23 Aug 2018 at Valachi Downs 1/2 to Dogtag (War Front)
Colt out of Fleece (GB) (by Daylami) born 02 Oct 2018 at Valachi Downs dam of G2 winner
Colt out of Posavina (NZ) (by Tiger Hill) born 21 Oct 2018 at Pencarrow Stud mare is a G3 winner from K1 family

I expect all 3 to be sold at the 2019 Karaka yearling sales in the last few days of January next year

26 August (Monday) workouts: (last edit was to add American Therorem/Ceballo/Juulstone)
* American Theorem - Del Mar/dirt - for George Papaprodromou. Formerly named Comeback.
* Cebolla - Los Alamitos/dirt
* Juulstone - Saratoga/dirt. He's just switched to Saratoga after being in Fair Hill for weeks.
* Mandatory - Saratoga/dirt for John Kimmel (proof this)
* Menelik - Belmont Park/dirt for Jonathan Thomas
* Prince of Pharoahs - Saratoga/dirt for Linda Rice (proof this)
* Turned Aside - Saratoga/dirt

Upcoming Races:
* 28 August (Wednesday) - Eagerly - Maiden tackling a Grade 3! With Anticipation Stakes G3 - 2 year olds, . One And One Sixteenth Miles. (Turf) - Will he become American Pharoah's first North American Graded Stakes runner, or dare we hope, winner? His only previous run was his third-place debut 27-July also on Saratoga's turf, also 1-1/16 miles. He is getting 4 pounds on all but 1 other entry due to being a maiden, and is the only maiden in the field. In that debut race he trailed near and in last until making a big move along the back and far turn to overtake all but the first two in a very strong finish. He is trained by Todd Pletcher and will have JR Velazquez aboard
* 29 August (Thursday) - Formal Attire - MSW Belterra Park 2nd race - 13:05 - 6 furlongs on dirt. Trained by Wesley Ward, ridden by Angel Rodriguez. This is just a two-week turnaround as his last race was August 14th at Indiana Grand where he finished last (8th of 8) in 5 furlongs on the turf. He's out of Opulence, daughter of the great Rags to Riches.
* 29 August 2019 (Thursday) - Holy Roman Empress - (Three day) at Tipperary Camas Park Stud Irish EBF Fillies Maiden (7½f) for 2yo. https://www.racingpost.com/racecards/20 ... -29/738520 17:25 . This race hasn't yet done the final cut from 36 entrants.

New upcoming Entries:
* 29 August (Thursday) - Sweet Melania - P.G. Johnson Stakes - Saratoga Race 9 17:18 localtime - 1-1/16 mile turf, for 2YO fillies. Purse $100,000. This will be her first race after graduating from MSW ranks on 14 July, a run which was also on 1-1/16th miles on Saratoga's turf. Her prior two starts (both thirds) were MSWs on dirt. Trained by Todd Pletcher, with Jose Ortiz riding. http://www.equibase.com/static/entry/SA ... html#RACE9
* 31 August (Saturday) - Saqqara King - colt o/o Joyful Victory by Tapit (Five day) at Chelmsford (AW) Betfred Conditions Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (1m) (Plus 10 Race) (Class 2) (2yo) 19:45 - on Polytrack - localtime. He is trained by Charles Appleby and will be ridden by William Buick. https://www.racingpost.com/racecards/10 ... -31/737156 . He took 2nd in a 7 furlong Listed stakes on the turf just two weeks before - 17 August; prior to that he was 1st in a 7f Novice Stakes on 6/22. This will be his first non-turf start, I think.

Three stakes runners in the next few days!

Here's what I had buried in my spreadsheet from a NZ studbook site. The bulk of the others I had gathered are AUS-registered, I think? This is just me doing a quick copy-paste when I see something online to throw it into my spreadsheet. Nothing's been researched and verified against original sources (I need to find those sources first!).

Interesting, most of the mares have been registered in NZ in the past but haven't been in NZ for a couple of years, the original 3 are so far the only 3 born in New Zealand. I didn't have a couple of those mares on my list yet so thank you!

Maidens trying again to graduate
* 29 August (Thursday) - Formal Attire - MSW Belterra Park 2nd race - 13:05 - 6 furlongs on dirt. Trained by Wesley Ward, ridden by Angel Rodriguez.

* 30 August (Friday) - Skygaze (filly o/o Skyscrape, by Marquetry) - in an MSW at Woodbine (race 3, 17:03 local time) 2YO fillies, 7 furlongs on the allweather track.

NOPE - Maiden trying to graduate in a G3
SCRATCHED - * 28 August (Wednesday) - Eagerly - Maiden tackling a Grade 3! With Anticipation Stakes G3 - 2 year olds, . One And One Sixteenth Miles. (Turf) - Will he become American Pharoah's first North American Graded Stakes runner, or dare we hope, winner? His only previous run was his third-place debut 27-July also on Saratoga's turf, also 1-1/16 miles. He is getting 4 pounds on all but 1 other entry due to being a maiden, and is the only maiden in the field.

He is trained by Todd Pletcher and will have JR Velazquez aboard. http://www.equibase.com/static/entry/SA ... html#RACE9

Winners running in Stakes
* 29 August (Thursday) - Sweet Melania - P.G. Johnson Stakes - Saratoga Race 9 17:18 localtime - 1-1/16 mile turf, for 2YO fillies. Purse $100,000. This will be her first race after graduating from MSW ranks on 14 July, a run which was also on 1-1/16th miles on Saratoga's turf. Her prior two starts (both thirds) were MSWs on dirt. Trained by Todd Pletcher, with Jose Ortiz riding. http://www.equibase.com/static/entry/SA ... html#RACE9
* 31 August (Saturday) - Saqqara King - colt o/o Joyful Victory by Tapit (Five day) at Chelmsford (AW) Betfred Conditions Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (1m) (Plus 10 Race) (Class 2) (2yo) 19:45 - on Polytrack - localtime. He is trained by Charles Appleby and will be ridden by William Buick. https://www.racingpost.com/racecards/10 ... -31/737156 . He took 2nd in a 7 furlong Listed stakes on the turf just two weeks before - 17 August; prior to that he was 1st in a 7f Novice Stakes on 6/22. This will be his first non-turf start, I think.
* 31 August (Saturday) - Envied (filly o/o Halljoy (IRE) by Halling) - ELIGIBLE - Exacta Systems Juvenile Fillies Stakes at Kentucky Downs (race 9 4:47pm localtime) - 2YO Fillies, 1 mile on Turf. Envied won her only other race, an MSW at Ellis Park that was also run at a mile on the turf. Purse $500,000. (Includes $200,000 – KTDF - Kentucky TB Devt Fund). Even without the KTDF supplement that purse is bigger than some Graded Stakes. http://www.equibase.com/static/entry/KD ... html#RACE9 . Envied isn't officially in the race, she is second on the also-eligible list. That means two of the current 12 entrants need to scratch in order for her to start.

Over the Pond, they're covering their bases with this girl
* Holy Roman Empress - In case she doesn't make the cut, she's showing up in three events -
29 August (Thursday) - (Three day) at Tipperary Camas Park Stud Irish EBF Fillies Maiden (7½f) for 2yo at 17:25. https://www.racingpost.com/racecards/20 ... -29/738520 17:25 .

I am trying to find a way to easily track nominations to stakes, meanwhile here are some findings -

Saratoga has a pair of G1 stakes for 2YOs coming up this weekend, and some familiar names are nominated. I'll post later when the draws are made.

1 September (Sunday) - Spinaway Stakes GR1 - 2Y fillies - 7f turf - $350,000 - 32 Nominations
* Sweet Melania - she's entered in tomorrow's PG Johnson Stakes as well

2 September (Monday) - Saratoga - Hopeful Stakes G1 - 2 YO - 7f turf - $350,000 - 30 Nominations
* American Butterfly
* Another Miracle

For those not in the US, the first Monday in September is a holiday known as Labor Day.

Orontes is recovering from a suspensory injury at New Vocations, implying he won't make it to the racetrack and he will be abailable for adoption.

First Pharoah to become an OTTB.

Thanks for the update. Sad to see him injured but very relieved he's in good hands who will work for his best next step.

Trivia: Orontes is half to Kakadu, who was the dam of the very first American Pharoah foal to be born (Jan 3, 2017). That foal became First Pharoah, and like Orontes, First Pharoah hasn't logged a workout yet that I could find.

I thought Sweet Melania did a great job but it looks like she was tiring near the end. The 3rd place finisher was closing quickly.

Crystalle, the winner, put in an amazing performance with that last turn of foot. That's pretty much what she did in her last race, too: didn't break well, ran way behind the leaders for most of the race then pulled a Zenyatta in the stretch.

30 August (Friday) workouts
* American Legend (filly o/o Yong Musician) - Churchill Downs/dirt. First logged work since winning her 2nd race, an MSW at Ellis Park on 17-August for Bernie Flint
* Cardiac Kid (colt o/o New Wave) - Saratoga/dirt for Ken McPeek
* King of Egypt (colt o/o Prof. McGonagall) - Fair Hill/dirt. This is his first logged workout since winning his debut August 1st in an MSW at Laurel Park for Graham Motion.
* Pharoah Cat (colt o/o Meerkat Miss) - has moved from Saratoga's dirt to Churchill Downs' dirt
* Toastnjam (filly o/o Toast to Ashley) - Saratoga/dirt. This is just her second logged workout, the previous one was last Friday.

There will likely be more since there are at least seven others not entered to run this weekend who would have more-or-less-weekly workouts on Fridays. Updating may be delayed for the rest of the day as work doesn't pay me to do this :)

Nominated, Waiting for Draw:
* 2 September (Monday) - Both American Butterfly and Another Miracle were both nominated to Saratoga's Grade 1 Hopeful Stakes for 2YO, 7f on turf. Draw is Friday.
American Butterfly drew into the Runhappy Hopeful Stakes GR1. He won last out on 17 August in an MSW at Saratoga goiing 6.5furlongs on dirt.

Another Miracle seems to have either not made the cut or they decided not to go through with it. I suspect the latter since he has a much better record than American Butterfly.

The Hopeful will be run 2 September - Labor Day Monday - at Saratoga as the 10th race post time 17:39. http://www.equibase.com/static/entry/SA ... tml#RACE10


Meanwhile, Holy Roman Empress has finally been Declared for 1 September (Sunday) race at - Cork - 1m Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden (2yo) at 14:20 - https://www.racingpost.com/racecards/59 ... -01/738729

* 30 August - Skygaze (filly o/o Skyscrape, by Marquetry) - MSW at Woodbine (race 3, 17:03 local time) 2YO fillies, 7 furlongs on the allweather track. Skygaze was 4th in her only other race, an MSW at 6 furlongs on Woodbine's turf. She is half to Corrupt, Suntrace, and Free Fighter. http://www.equibase.com/static/entry/WO ... html#RACE3
Skygaze romped to a 7 length victory in her second race, an MSW at Woodbine that was 7 furlongs on the allweather track.

I think that makes her AP's 10th winner, 5th runner to not get that first win until their second start, and first winner on allweather. He has winners now on dirt, turf, and artificial surfaces.
