I actually don't know about Graphic! I will try to find out.

Really sad to hear about Giant Turtle.

Today is the last G1 of the season.

But it's a beautiful day at Ellerslie today and the track looks perfect.

The Championship Stakes was absolutely terrifying. I don't recommend watching the replay.

Thank you for the warning... just went to the informant to read about it.... scary. I will pass.

You are kidding about the final G1, right?

Authentic Paddy!!!

I thought this was sweet and yeah maybe it should go under HK but whatever.

Pleasantly surprised seeing Gustavo had won the ANZAC Mile (wow that was a nice field, too! Very nice win for him!) but reading your piece on the Informant... very happy to see him getting attention. Awesome, ed!

I did not watch it and thanks for the heads up but very nice to hear Danielle Johnson was so extremely lucky (although it sounds incredibly painful). Whew!

Looking forward to seeing the final fields for both the Breeders and Travis Stakes!

Amazing fields all day. Can't believe the Breeders' Stakes is only a G3 - that's a G1 field!

Wow just looked and totally agree on all these points. ALL really great fields!

(I think I'm finally caught up haha... just read you piece on Kei Chiong form a couple of weeks ago and finally watched McQueen win. That was awesome!).

It's great to see Kei doing so well there!

The first three races at Te Rapa have been excellent. Hopefully it's going to get better and better from here.

Oh, Xtravagant! How great was that? Nice finish from Windbourne. (Liked your piece and the one about Ichiban as well).

Why haven't I heard of Barcelo? (Now a fan).

Out of the 7 (no really, seven ) that I absolutely loved in the Travis, Rasa Lila was not one of them but oh... that was very nice and props to Abidewithme, Gesemi and to The Auld Floozie cause wow that was some finish!

ALL great races but yeah... I did love seeing Fascination Street coming out from so wide to win that first one (that was a seriously nice field) (Too!).

I see Amun Ra is entered at Riverton on Wednesday. It would be lovely to see him (finally) get that 2nd win. Wow that was almost two years ago when he looked so good? Fingers crossed.

Again!

Yay that is awesome!!!!!

Going back through the Informant archives to see what I have missed and man, I just get such a kick outta seeing the "dual G1 winner" headline and then seeing the name Julinsky Prince! Some days I frigging hate the sport with the breakdowns and everything but this? This is the kind of thing that just makes my heart melt.

Happy birthday, ed.

Maybe they're not G1's on Saturday at Ellerslie but a lot of nice horses running!

Thank you! I'm actually on vacation in Australia, so I'll miss the races this weekend. But I'll be getting back into it on Tuesday.

Hope you're having a fantastic time!

I shall have to blow a kiss to Spoke to Carlo through the screen.

Nice fields at Trentham tonight (as well as Ellerslie. Duh - hadn't looked)! Not playing, just being a fan.

John Gray! What a game old man!

Props to Leith... Spoke to Carlo just was not there. Very glad the jockey didn't push him and hope he's alright.

That was a really nice break, but I'm back now and happy to be getting back into it. It's so good to see that they've put in a soft outside rail at Ellerslie. That's so much safer.

Glad to hear it!

I'll be gone next week (Hawaii... trip 1 of 3... yay haha! England later this summer and Croatia in the Fall - cannot wait)) but in the meantime LOVE some of the fields for the weekend, especially the Storming the Tower / Celebrity Miss / Pump Up the Volume and the one with John Gray, Illumaniti and Fascination Street.

Oh and wow... that race at Wanganui (Ag Challenge Stakes) looks awesome!

I know you must be swamped but Graphic... please remember if you ever hear anything... (?). Thanks! (Also on my favorite girl Pinzaara... would love to hear. Archie as well and the new kid!).
