Satono Damsel (Deep Impact x Dalicia) made it 2 for 2 today with a win over 1800 meters on Niigata's turf in Japan.

She's a half to Animal Kingdom.

A Racing Beauty, a full sister to G1 winner A Raving Beauty, won her debut race at Baden-Baden. I can't really tell from this video but it looks like she's gray too.

Makes me happy to still see Easy Goer appearing in pedigrees. He only sired about 133 foals before his death , but there was clearly promise there .

I'd like to think this horse is too high profile to land in a bad place - the word "Ohio" reflexively conjures Sugar Creek for me.

I don't think you need worry about that. I feel like I have seen pictures of other horses they have retired to good homes. At the very least they should go ahead and geld him. He obviously has no overwhelming desire to run races, even if he may be fast enough to win at the lower levels.

He's definitely high enough profile that any disappearance would be noticed. Many Chromies keep tabs on him and more than a few have the funds and facilities such that if there ever was a hint that "Chrome's baby brother" was looking for a new home or running for a tag, they'd jump at the chance to save him.

Heck, he'd make a great OTTB ambassador. Maybe like Zenyatta's oldest, Cozmic One, we'll be seeing videos of him being ridden bareback, with a halter, or trotting around a ring with relaxed body language and giving every indication he's enjoying life sans track and testicles.

In the Flame of Tara (won by Cayenne Pepper (IRE), a daughter of Australia), So Wonderful was 2nd, A New Dawn 3rd and Azila 5th.

Lope Y Fernandez (IRE) (1/2 to G2W Dark Vision) won the Round Tower. Fort Myers wound up 3rd and Arranmore was 11th/12.

Mogul (IRE) (Galileo/Shastye), a full brother to Japan, etc., broke his maiden in the first race on the card at the Curragh today.

Cayenne Pepper looks like a super promising filly, she almost got a second burst of speed when So Wonderful came up on her flank and won going away cosily after leading for a long time!

This was her 3rd win in 3 starts for trainer Jessica Harrington who has another promising 2yo filly in Alpine Star

Power Player (Distorted Humor x Cambiocorsa) is about to run in the G3 Saranac at Saratoga.
ETA: Unfortunatelly, Power Player finish 5th and last in the 1 1/16-mile Saranac. Maybe he would prefer the 6 1/2-furlong down-the-hill turf course at Santa Anita...if they ever run on it again. :(
The race was won by Global Access, a 3yo son of Giant's Causeway who is now a G3 winner on both turf and synthetic. Nice to see GC get some really good runners like GA and Bricks and Mortar from his last crops.
