Authentic (Into Mischief/Flawless) won the G3 Sham Stakes for the Great White One.

Azul Coast (Super Saver) and Zimba Warrior (Khozan) were behind.

90 BSF
despite the trouble in the stretch, lugged in, spooked from crowd, almost hit the rail all while well in front.
A little bit unusual, BB has been working this guy on his own rather than the popular team drills the barn does.
Pretty strong candidate for blinkers being added next time?

Don’t think he’ll be a Derby horse, but maybe a good sprinter. Merchants of Cool broke his maiden very impressively at Turfway, winning by a little over 10 lengths going 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:16.05 for trainer Wesley Ward

The Uncle Mo colt who won the 6th at Gulfstream today looks like the first maiden breaker to enter the market with the 'most likely to be bought by West Point' sign on him. Caracaro is his name. Looks to me like he's pretty talented despite being under a drive thru the stretch, but suspect these connections are likely to take the money if it's attractive enough. Let's see what the figure comes back, though.

No Parole, who won his debut at the FG last month by 14 1/4 lengths, won there again today by 13 1/4 lengths "eased up late" over a muddy track. Wonder if they'll run him against non-LA-breds next?

War Stopper, who broke his maiden for Rudy in the 3rd at Aqueduct today, ran a fast race. Even the runner up, a firster named Continuation, ran fast today.

I agree about the Gulfstream horse, though. Over a second faster than some OK horses in the other division. 1.76, or over ten lengths, to be exact.

I don't know what Joel Rosario was doing in Dubai, but he may be sorry he didn't get back in time to ride Nadal at SA. (Blame x a Pulpit mare)
Not surprisingly, pedigreequery lists about 15 "Nadals" including one from Serbia! :lol:

He wasn't doing anything in Dubai. He was in Saudi Arabia. Regardless, something tells me Bob won't have a problem giving him the mount back on Nadal over the bug rider who rode him today. Call me crazy.

I admit, the horse may be all that and then some. However, when owners take a colt by Blame out of Ascending Angel and name him....Nadal, I just can't root for that kind of laziness. Be better, owners, be better. :geek:

Nadal very impressive in every way - not only in the race today but also his physical appearance, and he definitely has the pedigree to stretch out in distance. Going off at 6/5 he was no surprise... anyone know if future plans/Derby trail have been mentioned?

I wouldn't expect him to be conservatively managed. :-)
He looked enormous compared to the other runners down the stretch.

He's from an old Widener family that traces back to Patelin, who is also the ancestor of Leslie's Lady, I'll Have Another, etc.

His 2nd dam is a full sister to the ill-fated Champion Pleasant Stage, G2 Colonial Play, the dam of Marsh Side, plus winner Meteor Colony, the dam of G1 Changeintheweather. There's A LOT of stakes winners from that family.
This is like 5 years old but the cross of Pleasant Colony/Meteor Stage produced a bunch of nice horses. http://apps.keeneland.com/sales/Nov15/pdfs/3129.pdf

I commented earlier that Nadal looked enormous. Apparently his listed weight was 1,323 lbs! :o
