This guy is a good one!
  • Wajima · Agree. Has done nothing wrong so far. 4 races. 4 tracks. 4 distances. 2 stakes. Very impressive coming off 6 month layoff to go 7 furlongs on a track he hadn't even trained on. Full disclosure, I'm prejudiced as a part owner but I love this horse. · 1 minutes ago

  • buds · Its gonna be tough for me to overlook 5-2 on Shared Belief. I think if it stays there that might be a good bet. Its good to see some new blood out west. I could only wish Chrome was in the line up...68 more days and maybe they will all be on the same track, cant wait. · 1 hour ago

These are Michael Tabor's post-race comments about Australia after today's win in the Juddmonte International. They were quote: "You go for a Derby because there's nothing like a Derby, but the truth of the matter is taking him back to 1-1/4 shows the speed he's got, and Joseph said you take him back to a mile and it would be perfect for him. In a perfect world he'll go to Leopardstown for the G1 Irish Champion Stakes next and then the English Champion Stakes. Maybe one more after that, I don't think so, but we'll have to play it one race at a time." End quote. No mention of the Arc anywhere in Tabor's comments, and should they decide to run Australia one more time after British Champions Day at Royal-Ascot, and since the Champion Stakes runs after the Arc De Triomphe, the only two logical targets would be if they came to the Breeders Cup or went after the $500,000 dollar bonus should they win the Japan Cup. Some writers are suggesting should Coolmore send Australia to Santa Anita in November that it would more likely be for the BC Classic instead of the BC Turf. They call the Classic a "no loose" race for Australia meaning that if even if he were to run sub-par in the Classic on conventional dirt it wouldn't effect his future stud fee in regard to breeding for turf.
Has an entry into Saturday's listed Hopeful Stakes over 6f on Newmarket's July Course, and will now race in Godolphin blue. If Reckless Abandon runs on Saturday it will be his first start since being returned to training after suffering fertility issues at stud.
Rightfully so on Saturday,The Travers along with the supporting stakes races are the focus. Keep an eye on Race 4 though,there are many highly thought of 3yos' that will be running. This will be a key race down the line. The headliner is Waging War. He came into his 1rst race with some serious workouts. Got left a bit at the start ,had to rush up and go 5 wide the entire turn. Tired late in the race. With a better break in this race.He will be a horse of the future. Tony Dutrows horse is not bad either.

  • Mary Z. · The 3, even if she should be favored, will be bet done to nothing due to the family, and particularly big sis, Moulin De Mougin, recently having that nice stakes win. I'll go with the 5 to beat her. 2 and 1 itm, but GL to little sis, of California Flag, too. · 11 hours ago ·

i think they should opt for the Turf Sprint rather than the Filly & Mare Sprint.
i wonder how much longer he will be able to keep riding. i know hes had issues making weight because hes so tall & obviously can't weigh as less as everyone else. spectacular rider. hope he continues.
i hope at some point in his career, he comes to the USA, would love to see him compete in the turf division, might be the next Cape Blanco
  • Northport · I think he may be a bit nicer than Cape Blanco, haha. He seems a bit too valuable for Coolmore to bring over for our turf races, and they haven't mentioned the Breeder's Cup at all either. Maybe if he stays in training at 4 they could bring him over for the BC, but it seems pretty unlikely. · 11 hours ago
  • kaitlinefree1 · hes a super nice colt. i think hes even better than Camelot was. so i doubt they bring him over here..but you never know. · 9 hours ago
