According to Coolmore's Facebook fan page, Daddy Long Legs has been retired. I would have loved to see them try him over shorter distances, unless of course he was injured - either way it's unfortunate he never got back to the Winner's Circle
According to MDK this race was the last roll of the dice now hes been scratched don't know why i assume he may be retired?
  • buzzcat859 · boooo they muxy have read my post last night lol that sux i was going to bet on him since trainer had been holding him LOL · 249 days ago
what are these bigshot owners doing/// are they mad at him??/ hes been running up the track and they keep running him like hes a cheap trotter lol
Today's run in the Dubal Potlines Trophy marks the 1st time in 6 career attempts to date at 2000 meters or 10f that Daddy Long Legs didn't finish dead last. But as these things go, finishing 12th of 14 isn't really a whole lot brigther, IMO. Time to wake up and smell the coffee. Daddy Long Legs just isn't a horse that's ever gonna see out the 10f/2000 meter trip well enough to ever be any kind of effective danger in a race of that distance. Time to start playing a bit more to his strengths and start thinking about dropping him back down in trip to 1600 to 1800/ 1850 meters again. JMO.
  • travel_vic · Old Adage proven true again: no foot, not horse. I spent a few mornings with farriers and the lady who subs as the director of the tower cams is a farrier as well. To here them tell it: if there is the slightest foot troulbe. LET NATURE HEAL IT. Running a horse with even a minor problem (remember Unbrideled Song) will run a sub-par race · 262 days ago
Mike De Kock is waisting his time running this horse in 10f or 2000 meter races. Simply put, Daddy Long Legs just absolutely cannot stay that trip. Today made the 5th career start at 10f or 2000 meters of Daddy Long Legs career and for the 5th time he finished stone motherless last. Other 10f races where Daddy Long Legs has finished last are the Kentucky Derby, Secretariat Stakes, Irish Champion Stakes, & Al Maktoum Challenge Rd. 3. He reminds me a lot of Godolphin's Mendip who was much the same way. From a mile to 9-1/2f he was tough to beat but could never see out that extra 1/2 furlong.

  • Northport · He is entered again on Thursday in the 6th at Meydan over 2000m. Maybe they just really want him to be their World Cup horse? · 265 days ago
  • ollagua · Daddy Long Legs it's going to race unshod. Dubai Racing Club ‏@DRC_Meydan ERA stewards have given Daddy Long Legs (Mike de Kock-Pat Cosgrave) permission to race unshod in the 2000m DUBAL Potlines Trophy on Thursday · 264 days ago
I think that he should be put back two 6 or 7 furlongs. Ten is just too much. He's got the speed though!
I love this horse, but Daddy Long Legs just absolutely is not a 10f horse. He doesn't stay that trip effectively enough to be a threat to win at group/graded stakes level. Today made the 5th career start at 10f for Daddy Long Legs. He's now finished stone motherless last in 4 of those 5 starts at 10f. Personally, I thought Mike De Kock should've dropped him back in trip to a mile and sent him to the Burj Nahaar with an eye toward the Godolphin Mile on world cup night.
  • likin sparks · I agree, you think they would have learned that by now. · 590 days ago
  • yukichan · Agreed, I think he could be devasting at a mile. I hope he came out of the race OK, he was sure a tired puppy... · 590 days ago
Any other 138th Derby or 139th Preakness horses other than Daddy Long Legs and Dullhan Racing this week? I know from the Belmont Atigun is going agian.
Firstly, I'm a big fan of Daddy Long Legs and very much want to see him do well in Dubai. That being said, his 4th in the Gloria De Campeao Handicap is the first time in 4 attempts he hasn't finished last when racing at 10f. He was last in the Ky. Derby, Secretariat Stakes, & Irish Champion Stakes in his other 3 attempts at 10f. But even in this race he looked tapped for speed on the business end of the race in the final 1 to 1-1/2 furlongs, which leads me to believe that 10f may be a shade beyond his optimum. If Coolmore are hoping for a big payday out of Daddy Long Legs on world cup night then the G2 Godolphin Mile is really the only race that realistically affords him that chance, IMO. I just think he'd be outclassed taking on the kinds of horses that will be in the Dubai World Cup or Dubai Duty Free fields, and if they ask him to go longer than 10f than I honestly don't believe he'd even get the trip. They should drop him back in trip to a mile and run him next in the G3 Burj Nahaar followed by the G2 Godolphin Mile, IMO.
entered in the Gloria De Campeao Stakes for a purse of $150,000 at Meydan on March 2. his odds right now are 4/1 & he drew the position number 1.

  • northport · Looks like he took 4th, still an improvement from his recent efforts. I agree Cocoa, while I don't mind synthetics, Tapeta is definitely my least favourite, it is very slow · 597 days ago
  • yukichan · Nice win by last year's winner Plantagenet, who really flew that last furlong. Jockey so happy, he kissed horse's cheek and rump... · 597 days ago
Since he ran so well on tapeta in winning the UAE Derby last year, I was really hoping the Firebreak Stakes might afford Daddy Long Legs a chance to turn what's been awful form lines for sometime now around and start going in a more positive direction. I was hoping he'd run big and maybe make the frame or even something like a 4th or 5th place finish back on this surface. Sure didn't work out that way though, as he ended up finishing 13th of 14. I really like this horse, but Daddy Long Legs is very clearly a horse who's lost his way.

  • ILuvTurfRacing · I know DLL hasn't raced since finishing well back in the G1 Irish Champion Stakes back in September, so It's not like I was expecting him to win or even make the frame for that matter, though I was hoping he might hit the board. I suspected he might need this first run, but there's a huge difference between needing the run and finishing 13th of 14 on the same track he galloped the UAE Derby field off their feet over just a year ago. No one can logically question that DLL has been handled by two world class trainers in Aidan O'Brien and Mike De Kock. But something has caused what looked a very promising horse a year ago to go completely sideways and off the track?? Sure hope Mike De Kock figures it out soon!! · 612 days ago
  • illhaveanothertriplecrown · I was really hoping he'd do well. I want him to be successful but it just seems like he can't do it. · 612 days ago
entered in the Firebreak Stakes (G3) at Meydan for tomorrow.
Although still owned by Coolmore, both Daddy Long Legs and Treasure Beach are currently in training in Dubai with Mike De Kock. Neither had performed great in 2012, so perhaps a change of scenery is best, and Daddy Long Legs clearly loves the Tapeta.
Added to my 100 to follow. [1,3/1]G 1a ( )
Unimpressive unfortunately.

  • railbird33 · Foolhardy to ship from Dubai just five weeks after his mile run in the desert and think he can be competitive at a mile & quarter. Richard Mandella once said, the ship to Dubai plus climate change- it takes his horse six months to recover. · 859 days ago
  • cocoa2 · Distance is no issue for this horse... · 859 days ago
Irish 2000 Guineas on Saturday!
Anybody happen to know what's up with him? Hope he's not injured!
Hardly any mention....Has DLL arrived at CD yet?
  • b1ueeyes03 · I think he did arrive and that he's in the quarantine barn.. · 900 days ago
  • Slam · Bummer that he drew the rail but I still think he has got a shot. Such a nice looking horse. · 900 days ago
daddy long legs this horse was bred to win this race and to pull out of the 2000 g at n'market on the same day .got to say somthing worth $50/50 e/w the horses it beat in dubai wern't nags and the win at newmarket uphill was almost a give away about this future star .
When will he ship for KY?? & when will he work?
