The 3yo crop in Europe has been terrible this year, but still a bit surprised that Coolmore didn't send something for each race. Stone Age and Concert Hall were apparently too busy being pacesetters...

Horse probably would have been a multiple graded stakes winner long ago. Fell apart trying to make the BC Juvenile despite having no better chance than being an also-ran. Then he was ridiculously...

Really we are talking about only a 20-year stretch that it was even possible for a horse to win 3 Grade 1s at Saratoga (there aren't that many Grade 1s w/in any single division in a relatively short...

Gotta love Santa Anita's stakes schedule.

They are so backwards there that they run the prep races (i.e. Santa Maria) after the marquee event (i.e., Santa Margarita).

Of course, they are all really...

Wasn't the Jaipur or the Poker 7 furlongs at one point?

I think Elusive Quality might have set a course record in one of those.

Pretty sure those races used to be a "pair" instead of one meant for...

Arinthod ran 12 furlongs in France before being purchased by Jenny Craig for the Belmont Stakes in 1993.

However, technically he only ran in part of the Belmont Stakes as he was a DNF.

He did...

I'm not arguing that. I'm commenting on the lack of a suitable race for a simple maiden winner at his home base.

He had to show up for this race whether his connections wanted to or not. And since...

He worked a slow 5 furlongs last weekend, which is probably a smart move (going slow rather than bullet working) as he can have no further slip ups to make the race.

I presume he will work again...

Was really hoping for a match up with Pappacap after that one wins the Pat Day Mile.
