I would imagine with Mike Repole as his owner he will make an appearance in the Belmont Stakes.

It was announced earlier this week by Coolmore's UK representative, Kevin Buckley, that The Gurkha, who was an impressive 8 length winner of the French 2000 Guineas at Deauville will not go to Epsom to run in the Derby but will instead be sent to Royal-Ascot to run in the St James's Palace Stakes. A decision that I feel certain was made in large part due to Air Force Blue's back to back clunkers in the English & Irish 2000 Guineas. Buckley went on to say that Coolmore's 4 probable starters for the Derby at Epsom will likely be US Army Ranger, Port Douglas, Idaho, & Deauville. There's no way of knowing how well The Gurkha would or wouldn't handle the step up in trip to 2400m for the Derby, but he's certainly proven he's lethal at a mile and I think will be the horse to beat in the St James's Palace Stakes. His performance at Deauville translated over to Newmarket or the Curragh would've put multiple lengths on Galileo Gold in the English Guineas or on Awtaad in the Irish Guineas either one, IMO.
What about Whitmore, Mor Spirit, hell Danzig Candy could try get loose on the lead if he could rate. We are gonna end up with an 8 horse field I am afraid.
Man that was a terribly disappointing Derby for Creator. Can anyone find a reason for his poor performance that make someone believe he will be a bounce back in the Belmont??
If Mohaymen was here, he'd win. But I like DESTIN for 1st then Creator, Exaggerator , and Stradivari .
Hope they can ban this lunatic. She is a disgrace.
Just for kicks, I'll bet an all gray superfecta: Lani, Creator, Destin, Cherry Wine.
Looks like she worked 5/8 In 1.00 and 4/5
What an incredible comeback we new he was special... Been waiting over 6 months to see him do that...
Tapit's had been running well in the Belmont Stakes over the past 2 years.
Current best odds in the UK for the Belmont: Exaggerator 11/8, Suddenbreakingnews 6/1, Cherry Wine 8/1, Stradivari 8/1, Destin 10/1, Lani 14/1, Mo Tom 14/1, Brody's Cause 16/1, Creator 20/1, Mor Spirit 25/1
Wow! Things aren't always what they seem on the surface: http://tinyurl.com/gtyryur
DAMN!! Gift Box just looked amazing today!! Here is a horse to keep an eye on this year. Dwyer maybe next.
On his 2016 seasonal debut, and back up in trip to 10f where I think he's even more effective than he is racing at a mile, Time Test gets the better of Western Hymn to win the G3 Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown Park. At present, Time Test is cross entered in both the G1 Prince of Wales's Stakes at 10f and G1 Queen Anne Stakes at a mile during next month's royal meeting at Ascot, but my personal hope is that trainer Roger Charlton goes for the Prince of Wales's Stakes over 10f. Time Test bolted up to easily win the G3 Tercentenary Stakes at last year's royal meeting over that same 10f trip.
As the first post dedicated to you, on this website, I want to congratulate you on an outstanding job of nurturing and blossoming Runhappy to the point where he now stands atop the racing world in the sprint division, winning the Breeders Cup Sprint. He won five straight races under your tutelage. Your pictures showed an incredible bond that shows that an animal can respond, and love a human. Though there are factors that will interrupt this relationship, I hope that there will be a reunion that will be in the not-so-distant future. In the meantime, I will be cheering for you to not only succeed, but also be able to provide many more stories that are similar to your first great story. Thank you for sharing your story. Looking forward to hearing good news for you, and about you.

She is such a beautiful person. She will be picked up in the future to be a trainer for good horses in the future.
  • Blueyedhusky via Disqus · I thought so at first, but then I started finding some nasty stories about her on the Web. See for yourself: http://tinyurl.com/gtn8kpa · 8 hours ago
Worked 4 furlong in 48.22 2/3 on 5/20 on the Belmont dirt training track. He certainly has the pedigree to get 12 furlongs. I was against him because of his bizarre campaign skipping a final prep. I was never against him because of distance limitations. He seems to be training up well to the race, and he looks like he could be strong. I do wonder whether he can carry that speed 12 furlongs. I would rank him behind Exaggerator, Brody's Cause and Suddenbreakingnews, but ahead of Cherry Wine.
Wow. Its a shame that he would be pointed to the Bing Crosby instead of the Alfred G. Vanderbilt and the Forego Handicap. But it will be good to see him on the track in any race. Makes sense with the BC in the west.
Late movers usually need a "set up" pace structure to overcome late. WIth no definitive pace setters, pressers take over, usually SLOW DOWN the front, making late moves even harder to create.
