Almost missed this entry... 2018 Sunland Derby winner Runaway Ghost makes his return to racing Saturday in the Ft. Bliss Stakes at Sunland Park. He hasn't raced since the Sunland Derby & missed out on the Kentucky Derby when he fractured a cannon bone during a workout.

Trainer Todd Fincher on 2018 Sunland Derby winner Runaway Ghost's return victory in the Ft. Bliss Stakes at Sunland Park:
“The relief factor was unbelievable. I was happy to see his return be great. It wasn’t just OK. It was great."

I'm pleased to continue to see Battle of Midway run well since his return.

I hope when he does retire again --hopefully no time soon-- they give him another chance at stud. Starspangledbanner's fertility improved some after he went back to stud.

So, we're going to get to see at least ONE son of Scat Daddy race on as a four-year-old. ;)

Catholic Boy.

He’s wintering well @bridlewoodocala

Looking forward to him getting back on the road. He has all the qualities we’ve come to expect from More Than Ready. He was quick at two, versatile & sound at three. Maturing into an eye catching 4 year old.

I missed that; thanks for posting about him. I'm sure there is a graded race somewhere with his name on it.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I hope the folks in #NOLA don’t over react next Tuesday to the long awaited, frequently rumored return of Preakness-placed, Jim Dandy winner #TENFOLD. 🎉 Laissez les bons temps rouler.

I hope he stays healthy. I've kill to see him in the Met Mile. It doesn't look like he'd have a problem getting that although you never know.
