Well, over at the entry for Shaman Ghost, it appears he is now out of the Woodward due to throat surgery. GR's job just got a little easier. And in the case of the JCGC, maybe Keen Ice's as well.
Entered on Sunday Race 9 Del Mar for Baffert and Magnier
Coolmore made a video of American Pharoah, Air Force Blue and Vancover Shuttling to Australia. Shows AP at Ashford, the airport and loose in his paddock in Australia. https://www.facebook.com/CoolmoreStud/
Wow small field but this race is loaded!
BH is reporting that Shaman Ghost is out of the Woodward because of necessary surgery for a throat problem. The description given sounds like an intermittent dorsal displacement or entrapment of the epiglottis. https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/223158/throat-surgery-forces-shaman-ghost-to-skip-woodward#disqus_thread I'll try to find the exact specific dx. from additional write-ups.
Was bred to Deep Impact.
Was sold last fall. Anybody know who she was bred to?
Nominations close at midnight. Look for a post on some nominees either tomorrow or Saturday.
I'm going with Ten City for this race.
I understand this horse hasn't won a two turn race yet...I do. Part of it to me though is Rosario can't seem to give him a good trip over and over again(except at Churchill). Even in the Dwyer he gave him a bad trip and PJ still won. This horse should be running in the Travers. I still think this horse is in the top 5 at worst for 3 year olds.
lets hope it was that moment an animal just dosnt turn up and things are back to normal come race day ,

Dream It Is, the impressive Schuylerville winner, sidelined by a wrenched ankle. Could return to races late fall, per trainer Minshall.

Effinex is 4 for 20 lifetime.."1" grade 1 victory..ran out of money 8 times..Easy Goer is 14 for 20 lifetime.."9" grade 1 victories NEVER ran out of the money..Track records..Beyer speed figure records etc..Horse racing Nation has Effinex ranked FAR ahead of Easy Goer in "Top horses of all time"..The list is ridiculous as a whole..but when i seen this particular ranking i was baffled
