I just loved this horse, she was a money maker and one of my favorites.
Australia romps home to win the G1 Juddmonte International Stakes, in the end, pretty easily. If that's an Australia that wasn't race fit for this race, I can't wait to see what he's capable of once Aidan O'Brien pronounces him 100% fit!!

Always on the innovative edge in the racing community, Woodbine has now adopted the more logical European way of evaluating the firmness/softness ratio of their turf course with a variant on the penethrometer called the GOING STICK. Now the going is reported as a number: the amount of penetration a device goes into the course at various points around the course. I knew about their reporting it on the website but was unable to locate it until a remarkable research assistant reported its IP address yesterday. http://www.woodbineentertainment.com/Woodbine/RaceTrackNewsPage.aspx?NewsId=f7d4865a-43d3-47d1-98f7-aa4a8a8fe812
  • travel_vic · At Woodbine, the turf will be assessed every sixteenth of a mile via the GoingStick mid-morning each racing day. An average of the readings will be taken and a rating on a 15-point scale (15 for very firm, 0 for very soft) is created. This number is then applied against a traditional soft-to-firm turf scale suitable for public consumption. “Racing fans and horsepeople have long sought to quantify our turf conditions,” said Steve Koch, WEG’s Vice-President of Thoroughbred Racing. “The GoingStick has been adopted at all courses in Great Britain and some tracks in the United States. We’ve been testing the technology for several months and we believe in it.” · 1 hour ago
have certified letter from judge re: 2,000 dollars i never received...also did you inform the buyers of the house about all that junk metal machinery in the ground next to the house? a reply would be nice
i will never stop loving him... his strive for winning inspires me! i wont to have a horse to! =) sometimes i just need to forget what others think! (i am not judging any one here that's righting comments! i mean people that don't like/don't care about this amazing horse) because to me Secretariat is a winning horse hero of mine. i love horses so much. and Secretariat... i mean, WOW! god bless all horses! god have peace and rest on Big Red!
The progressive Postoned holds off Snow Sky by just over a length to win the G2 Great Voltigeur Stakes at York. Postponed had won the listed Glasgow Stakes at Hamilton in his start prior to this and was 3rd behind Cannock Chase in the G3 Tercentenary Stakes at Ascot 2 starts back.
Great decision to skip the Travers for the King's Bishop......Best in the field......Hope the odds don't go to low......
Just announced, odds on favorite Kingston Hill is a late scratch out of the G2 Great Voltigeur Stakes today at York. Very disappointing.
Dutch Connection narrowly gets up to win the G3 Acomb Stakes for William Buick and trainer Charlie Hills.

Woodbine has announced plans to refurbish the Polytrack next month. Long-term alternatives are dirt or another synthetic surface. per DRF
  • travel_vic · There have been problems in the past, but addition of the binder, called Jelly Cord stopped that initial "kick back." http://www.horse-canada.com/horse-news/troubles-with-polytrack-at-woodbine/ · 18 hours ago
Hate that he missed so much of the year. And watch them only race him next year then retire him. I just hope he returns and is just as good if not better than he was as a two year old since most of the three year olds this year will probably not race after this year or next
  • shores · I hope he becomes the next Flat Out. Missing so much of his young career and making it up as an older horse. · 22 hours ago
  • honor code via Disqus · Me too! This is my favorite horse and I was so sad when he tore his suspensary. Come back & win some big ones Honor Code!!! · 19 hours ago
Polytrack came to Toronto (oddly enough) because one of the prominant OWNERS of the company sat on the board of Woodbine Entertainment! That person is no longer here, the horsemen NEVER loved the surface, it is VERY expensive to maintain and re-replenish (generally two huge loads of the stuff come each season and often dramatically alters the running styles for weeks thereafter), it stinks, it retains heat unbelievably in the summer, you cannot hear the horses running on it, it is gooey and once ON you, it is very hard to get out of your clothes, it often creates "false" champions only capable of winning on that one surface, many outriders wear masks as they have seen how often their mounts need to be scoped for debris down their pharynx, AND, since the organization lost the support of the Slots and Racetrack contract, FUNDS are at an all time low to fold back into the non-profit Woodbine Entertainment Company.......and the popularity nationwide is at an all time low......what would be your guess as to the future of this surface???
Gooooooooo Debbie ! ! !
it's official, Wise Dan will will run in the Grade 2, $250,000 Bernard Baruch Handicap at Saratoga on Aug. 30, trainer Charlie LoPresti said to DRF. Go Wise Dan!!!!!
