Monarch of Egypt was sixth (I think) in the Dewhurst. A drop in class seems to be in order.
He was fifth, beaten 9.5 lengths. At least he didn’t finish last this time.
MoE generally makes a good run of it, even if he does fade, which is probably why he'd like a few listed races and G3s to pick up some confidence and hopefully a win.

Hong Kong actually ran and finished a non-threatening second.

12 October (Saturday) - Hong Kong managed to draw into the Limerick race despite being 13th on the alternate list - perhaps the projected Heavy going scared off everyone else? Anyhow, he's now Declared for The Follow Limerick Racecourse On Twitter Maiden - 7 furlongs, race 2 at 2:35pm local time. Breaking from post 9 of 13, trained by Aiden O'Brien and ridden by Donnacha O'Brien.
Hong Kong finished second. He followed the leaders in 3rd, along the outside, with 4th/5th just immediately to his inside, started getting urged around the far turn, and while he did pick up the pace as the pack started its final charge, he was working hard down the stretch head to head and managed to get second by a nose over the third place on his inside.

The 'Follow Limerick Racing on Twitter' Maiden.

OK I think I'll stop complaining about Yum! Brands being mentioned every time the Derby is now.
*snicker* yeah. The blahblahblah-presented-by-censored thing came to mind for me, too.

At least these guys aren't tacking it onto a big institution that gets repeated all over the place.

Yay Hong Kong! I hope everything works out with him. I like grays and he has a strong name.

I wonder how he would react to dirt...he's kinda bred for it.

  • 13 October (Sunday) - Prince of Pharoahs - Belmont Park MSW for 2yo, one mile on dirt, additional restricton of foaled in New York. He's starting from gate 4 in race 4, post time 2:57pm. Trained by Linda Rice and ridden by Jose Lezcano. He's owned by his breeder and not put up for auction.
Prince of Pharoahs won! This was his second outing, and he sure seemed to have learned a lot from his first trip, when he ended up 8th of 11. Today he broke well, took the lead briefly, almost immediately had it challenged & briefly taken by a couple of others, and when the dust settled by the quarter pole he was steady with Jack of Clubs as his running mate for the next couple of furlongs, the two of them running almost head to head with Prince of Pharoahs leading. Coming around the far turn, he was urged to give more, and he did, pulling away from the field to finish a good five lengths ahead of the rest.

Nicest thing was this looked like a true hand ride, and a mild one at that.

I think this makes him American Pharoah's 15th or 16th winner. Will have to look that up when I'm back at the "real" computer.

Maybellene was owned by Natalie Baffert and trained by Bob, who placed her in the November 2016 breeding stock sale in foal to American Pharoan where she was purchased by Clarkland Farm for $550,000. Clarkland put the yearling filly she produced in 2018 Keeneland Yearling Sale where she was picked up by West Point for $375,000.

Ocean Atlantique was a very easy winner at Saint Cloud. He is inbred 4x3 to Storm Cat. Dissemble, his second dam, is the dam of Leroidesanimaux and is a half-sister to blue hen Hasili.
