Filly Got Stormy Draws Post Five, Favoritism In Woodbine Mile

‘Very Consistent’ British-Bred Filly Awesometank Takes On Males In Woodbine Mile
https://www.paulickreport.com/news/bree ... bine-mile/
Got Stormy finished second to her “uncle” El Tormenta. Really wanted her to win, but it’s always nice to see Sam-Son get a G1, especially with a member of the No Class family.
She was second? Ugh, I was cheering hard for her. It would be awesome to see her beat the boys back-to-back.

Got Stormy still ran a really great race and I think she's good enough for the Mile.

The 3yo Galileo filly, Search For a Song, won the Irish St. Leger against a formidable field, which included last year's Melbourne Cup winner Cross Counter.
Search For A Song serves up Irish St Leger upset under superb Chris Hayes ride
Chris Hayes received all the plaudits from Dermot Weld after partnering 10-1 shot Search For A Song to a two-and-a-quarter length win in the Comer Group International Irish St Leger.
An eighth winner of the Classic for Weld, the Moyglare Stud-owned filly was the first of her sex to win the race since Hayes won on the Weld-trained Voleuse De Coeurs in 2013.
The only three-year-old in the line-up, she became the first filly of her age to win the event for 30 years.

Anybody out there on the Left Coast have any info on what happened to Marley's Freedom from the Baffert barn? Hasn't worked since end of July yet still suggested she's pointing to the BC F&M Sprint.

Asking for a friend.

Thanks.

Paulick has an article saying she's been turned out for the rest of the year, so no BC.

Game Winner is also done for the year, although Baffert hopes he will return for a 4yo campaign. Up to the owner.

Won by 8 lengths, set a new stakes record, and just missed the track record.

And I love that Minit to Stardom (Star Guitar) is taking her Louisiana show on the road against open company. Star Guitar was such a cool horse.

Ultra-consistent Fifty Five won her 7th stakes today in the John Hettinger S., a race she also won last year.
She is also by Get Stormy.

The really terrific part of the story is that True Self used to be a hurdler in England. Now she's a group I winner on the flat in Australia.

curious question;

generally i hear ppl say things like "colts are faster on average because testosterone and guy stuff and fillies/mares can't compete unless they're EXTRA good" but with the girls winning/running well this BC, and doing so regularly over seas, how true even is that idea? i mean fair enough that sounds pretty agreeable, but i've seen enough fillies/mares win over colts/geldings/stallions that i want to learn more abt that supposed fact.

ty in advance for any info/stats/whatever :)

I never hesitate to bet a mare against colts running short or very long—11f and longer—on any surface and at any distance on turf. It’s the 8-10f dirt races that are really tough. If you want to see it tried, I would say the fall and winter make the most sense. Still, while you might be able to get away with it once or twice, you’re in danger of frying and souring a mare and it’s Hell when the latter occurs. Those 8-10f dirt races are as much about brute strength as anything and the pace is hotter in the open races. I think Charlie Whittingham was the greatest trainer I ever saw. In 1974 he had a golden opportunity to win the Santa Anita Derby with Miss Musket—on paper. She was far and away the most impressive looking 3yo that winter, in CA, even more so than the discrepancy seemingly shown between Songbird and her male contemporaries in the winter of 2016. Instead he ran for the most he could against the least he could and shipped her Oaklawn to run in the Fantasy where her biggest competition was to be Out to Lunch who Miss Musket had handled easily and repeatedly at Santa Anita. The purses for those two races were close enough and Miss Musket galloped.
