This is the the best horse . He will be horse of the year again. If for some reason he doesn't get back to form I like palice malice next .
slade power what a lovely horse,i would love to own this horse what a lovely true racing horse he is,i am so glad for his trainer,owner,stable staff boy oh boy did he win well sweating did not affect his winning
Be on the LOOK OUT for this one. Maybe twice a year does one see a two year old run like this one did Saturday in the 6th at Woodbine. Setting a solid pace, this one was headed by TWO others outside of it down the lane and rallied to easily run away from them a second time. When this one knows how to run he has some real potential ahead of him. Wow
From Gulfstream: "Atreides, a 3-year-old son of Medaglia d'Oro and half-brother to Dreaming of Julia, who won the 2013 Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2) by 21 3/4 lengths, left quite an impression Saturday when breaking his maiden at first asking. 'To be honest, that's one of the best horses I've ever ridden," said jockey Edgard Zayas, who was carried to a 5 1/4 length victory by Atreides in 1:08.69. "That's a really classy horse.' Owned by Stonestreet Stable and trained by Marty Wolfson, Atreides, won for fun after going by the pacesetter and runner-up Back to Seattle entering the stretch. Atreides is out of Dream Rush, who won the Prioress (G1), Test (G1), and was second in the Acorn (G1)."

  • Dressage3295 · I've been waiting for this one to make his debut! It was quite the impressive win. Wonder where they'll be pointing him next. Maybe an allowance race and then a stakes race? · 7 hours ago
Why has she not worked since the Debutante?? Is she getting a break or is there a physical issue?
  • Goblin · Don't know, but she was pointing to the Schuylerville on 7/18 per Calhoun interview with BH right after the Debutante, so something must have changed. · 8 hours ago

She may be good, but she is not the best.
what could have been another unfortunate horse being sidelined unable to see his true potential.
He is targeting, as his final start, the $1M Sprint Classic at Flemington in AUS on Nov. 8th. There, he'll face my best mate Lankan Rupee. What a meet up!
Wins the Parx Dash Handicap yet again!
