80 Year Anniversary of a Triple Crown champion. As we hope for American Pharoah to win the Triple Crown, this horse from yesteryear will mark the 80th year since he became the 3rd Triple Crown winner, following his father, Gallant Fox in 1930, who was the second TC victor. In memory of this possibly forgotten champ, Sullivan marked the remembrance of this "legend" two years ago, with this statement: Omaha is certainly a coveted horse. We regard him as a legend, a triple crown winner on par with the greats of the 1930s. Would it surprise you to learn that on July 10, 1935 DRF published an article titled "Omaha Best Of Bad Lot"? Maybe things haven't changed so much after all.
Lubash, Kharafa, and King Kreesa have a nice little rivalry going over the last few years. They will do battle again today in the Kingston Stakes. The last several years have produced some hardy and talented NY breds which make these NY bred racing showcase days very enjoyable.
Iron Fist, breaks his maiden today at Santa Anita with Mike Smith in the irons.
I may have been as impressed with Mustajeeb's seasonal debut in the G2 Greenlands Stakes as any horse I saw race at the Curragh over the weekend. When you factor in the number of G1 winning sprinters he had in the rear view, I.E., Maarek, Sole Power, Gordon Lord Byron, & Astaire, coupled with his already having a course win at Ascot over 7f at last year's Royal Meeting in the G3 Jersey Stakes, I'd say that makes Mustajeeb very live in this year's G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes. Though in fairness to Gordon Lord Byron, I did read he had a dirty scope post-Greenlands Stakes. Dropping this colt back in trip from a mile to sprinting distances may turn out to be a stroke of genius by trainer Dermot Weld before all is said and done, IMO.

Any information on where Crown Queen might resurface? Have been curious about her status for a while now.

Mylute, fifth in the 2013 Kentucky Derby and third in the Preakness when trained by Tom Amoss, will make his first start for Todd Pletcher on Friday in a $85,000 third-level allowance race going a one-turn mile at Belmont Park. It will be Mylute's first start since he ran in the Governor's Cup last August 2. According to DRF

BREAKING NEWS: Bob Baffert tells DRF's Marty McGee that he is now considering the G1 Stephen Foster Handicap for the next start for Bayern, Baffert says that the Met Mile is still a possible, so now it's 50/50 as which of these two races will be his next start. According to DRF
  • Easy Goer via Disqus · I know the met mile is coming up tough but I don't think he should go to churchill and at the shorter distance can help his chances. I assume the concern is private zone but Bayern is much better i think · 3 hours ago
Southern Honey just looks too tough for the repeat.
