Also take a listen to ATR Hour 3 from Friday 6/15 with Nick Luck. Have a good pen and paper as he and Steve go through a bunch of the weeks races quickly.

Royal Ascot is cool. Ordinary good graded stakes horses from the states shipping to run there is absurd. I get shipping to Dubai, the purses are enormous but to ship across an ocean to be swallowed by it for less money than available in States is just obnoxious IMO

It's not about the money; it's about the challenge and possible prestige, and with the recent US success it's brightened the dream even more.

Besides Wesley Ward, who has displayed a true genius over there, the failures have FAR outweighed the successes.

Tepin was unique, I get it. The Ward babies are forward, and to his credit, he identified an opportunity and succeeded. Dreams are great, we all hope, then reality sets in, or at least it is supposed to
