Hoppertunity's half-brother by War Front, Leader of Men, is entered in the Super Derby Prelude Stakes.

Also in the race is Rotation, a full-brother to Tapiture, and Fredonian, whose second dam is Oh What A Windfall.

Wooderson (Awesome Again x Lotta Kim), 1/2 to Rachel Alexandra, ran a good second to Tom's d'Etat today in the Alydar Stakes. A good second in that he was 6+ lengths in front of the show horse, T d'E was much better than the one length victory might imply. Regardless, pleased to see Wooderson get a good placing in a stakes race - at the Spa!

The much talked about half-brother to Restless Rider, Wayne O, was an uninspiring 8th as the favorite today in his debut at Saratoga.

And speaking of Azeri, I wonder whom she will visit next year now that Deep Impact is gone.

Azeri visited Heart's Cry for the first time in 2017 to produce a filly in 2018.
She was not covered in 2018 and her status for this year is unknown.
If she is not retired from breeding, I suspect that she will visit either Heart's Cry again or Lord Kanaloa or Duramente.
Azeri has been producing winners since arriving in Japan but no stakes winner yet.
Let's hope she will finally find her best progeny soon!

Thanks, Tachyon. Personally I would love for her to visit Lord Kanaloa.

Cape of Good Hope (A O'B) was 3rd today in the inaugural Saratoga Derby. He is a full brother to Highland Reel and Idaho. Hveger is quite a mare.

Kingly (Tapit x Justwhistledixie) won the La Jolla at Del Mar. He's a full to Mohaymen and half to New Year's Day.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

During the 6 o'clock hour Mike Smith was aboard the 2-year-old filly America's Surprise, a daughter of Triple Crown winner American Pharoah and half-sister to champion Songbird for Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer.

The work basics: America's Surprise went five furlongs in 1:00.20 from the gate with the interim half-mile in :47.40.

America's Surprise is being aimed for a race here next Sunday. Hollendorfer assistant Dan Ward noted of the work: “From what I've seen she's got a really smooth action – like him (American Pharoah).”

The mare has been a nice producer for sure. Was it Kingly's first start on turf?

Yes, although he'd won a minor stakes on synthetic. He's no worldbeater so far, but definitely upped his stud possibilities.
Can't wait to see the AP v. Songbird.

Judging by PQ it looks like Justwhistledixie has only produced boys so far. Did she have a filly and it passed away? She has no foals registered on there for 2014 or 15.
