Just a Way, Harp Star and Gold Ship, the Japanese contenders for next month's Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe who had to make their way to France by road from Amsterdam after the flight taking them from Tokyo to Paris was cancelled, arrived at their base in Chantilly on Sunday morning after a near 35 hour journey.
any recent works? Is she pointed anywhere?
  • Goblin · I don't believe she's worked since 8/16, just prior to the Ballerina Stakes on 8/23, where she finished second. Should be working again soon. · 24 minutes ago
Saw someone commented that his career was over? Did they retire him?
  • Goblin · He's begun training again after taking time off in Florida for several months. (See ktw321's post) Paulick compiled updates on various 3 y/o's last week. http://www.paulickreport.com/news/ray-s-paddock/where-are-they-now-catching-up-with-this-years-three-year-olds/ · 35 minutes ago

  • ruffianlover · I really hope he stays healthy and can give us something exciting to look forward to for the older male division next year · 46 minutes ago
Where is she??
Any word on ROC? I saw he is back in the barn- that's good news!
Anyone have any word on him? He was one of my guys I had my eye on this spring. Would love to see him return successfully and race next year.
Wow missed the retirement of this guy too. :( So many too soon
Smashes them in the CT Oaks!
Social Inclusion diagnoed w/tendon issue says Chad Brown but "horse has chance to make full recovery from it. Will take time & patience"
Untapable earned a 94 Beyer speed figure for her win in the Cotillion.
  • ruffianlover · Anyone else think that this should have been higher with her overcoming a strong speed bias track? She never looked comfortable, and still won. · 1 hour ago
Artemis Agrotera earned a 94 beyer speed figure for her win in the Gallant Bloom Hcp.
Bayern earned a career top 111 beyer speed figure for his win in the Penn. Derby yesterday
Way to go Untapable!
I had Untapable, Sweet Reason and Little Alexis as my trifecta. Would I have won any money on a $2 wager?
Got to love tapiture great run in pa derby/bc classic or bc dirt mile/I think he has a better chance in the classic/itsmyluckyday -bayern -tapiture bc dirt mile /hats off to bob Buffett/no sooner does game on dude retire and here comes bayern 1:46:9/he must feed um different hay!
ZATT's Star of the Week, is ... Bayern!
The great Discovery carried 130 or more 19 races out of 33 in a two yr period. The highest amount he carried was 143. The highest weight he won under was 139.
  • airedale2008 · Buckpasser, the weights assigned today seem rather minuscule compared to what horses ran with years ago. Are racing secretaries afraid of breakdowns, as more trainers administer drugs to mask the aches and pains? Curious what the highest weight assigned is this year. · 6 hours ago
Dumbass stables got greedy and did not prep Chrome + Jock kept him in a box until the top of the lane = no Horse of the Year. But how can you keep saying he has done more than Shared Belief ? SB already has BEAT older horses in a Grade 1 race. Bayern will not go 1 1/4 against top older horses. We will see next week.

  • Mary Z. · Hey gloom and doom, clecair, Had not whoever's whatshisname, the no chancer not scraped The Derby-Preakness winner at the start of the Belmont, there could be a different story. Either we see a Triple Crown winner or not as much time off for Chrome after the Belmont. I don't recall the name, but class is not just about the horse race gradings. Why is it always the worst horses that ruin it for the best? See also 2011 Belmont and No He Isn't, that race's ruiner. There are long shots that have some kind of a chance and then there are ones who do not belong. It is not a blessing for the top two year old that is having a fantastic comeback as a three year old to have missed the Triple Crown races. It is just what happened. Do you think they wouldn't have loved to have won the Derby? As for Bayern, someone asked months ago which one 3 year old the readers thought capable of winning the Triple Crown. With Shared Belief already out, I know I said Bayern. He's had his ups and downs, but when he gets that word go in his head, he's beautiful. I think you are right about Shared Belief, but not for the reason you stated. · 10 hours ago
  • cleclair1994 · Im not trying to be gloom and doom Im just going off of recent trends in the last few years. 2011 was different but look at the other recent years. Orb and Oxbow ran a combine total of 3 times after the triple crown...bodemeister, I'll Have another, Creative Cause, Union Rags never ran again. Even this year. Danza, Medal Count, Intense Holiday. These are all talented horses that ended their career because of the triple crown. The horses that become the really good ones down the lines are the ones that usually did not go through this rigorous schedule. Im not saying it is always the case, of course there are exceptions, but there are enough examples in the past few years that it can be concluded that the Triple Crown may not be the best thing for the race horse itself. · 10 hours ago
Have never seen her in person but she looks like a BEAST in her photos and on TV, very physically impressive. She has backed it up on the track in her last three races, nice win today.
