  • rafirox · Turfy, when he trained in Florida/New York as a baby, my friend was raving about him. He's always had talent, but I think he responded well to the lawn (Europe) rather than the dirt. His last out wasn't all that impressive, but he looked good in the Minstrel Stakes. I think this is a good distance for him, too. · 193 days ago ·

Darwin only 3rd today in the G3 Solonway Stakes in Ireland behind Brendan Brackan & Ansgar.
The son of Big Brown looks to make it a perfect 3 for 3 in Ireland in the G3 Solonoway Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday, supplemented into the race for $6,000 euros by trainer Aidan O'Brien.
was scratched today due to not the right ground
Darwin defeats Gordon Lord Byron and Leitir Mor to win the G3 Minstrel Stakes at the Curragh in Ireland. He's 2 for 2 now on turf in Ireland for trainer Aidan O'Brien.
Backed into 4/6 fav and takes the g3 Minstrel stakes by around 2 lengths from Gordon lord byron.
run tomorrow in the g3 minstrel stakes, should be a good race with gordon lord byron last seen running 4th in the diamond jubilee
wins on hes first start for obrien
Darwin is in fact in the barn of trainer Aidan O'Brien in Ireland now and is one several Coolmore horses pre-entered into the G2 Dante Stakes over 10-1/2f at York on May 16th. Hard to say whether he'll actually run in the Dante Stakes though since Coolmore has a half-dozen or more of their more promising 3yo pre-entered for the race at York. Darwin will also now race in the purple & white silks of owner Derrick Smith instead of the all dark blue silks of John & Susan Magnier, as Smith is now listed as Darwin's first or primary owner ahead of Susan Magnier & Michael Tabor since he was transferred to Aidan O'Brien at Ballydoyle recently.
According to Coolmore's Facebook page, Darwin has been transferred to Aiden O'Brien

  • thatbigbay · He's an undeniably talented colt, and I anticipate his spring season. That said, his sire is sprinter Into Mischief, and his grandsire if Harlan’s Holiday, who finished second in multiple 10 furlong stakes, but seemed to run his best at 9 furlongs. Goldencents’ dam is Golden Works, who found her success sprinting in the claiming ranks. His broodmare sire is Banker’s Gold, who won on occasion 9 furlongs, but did his best running at shorter distances. I really like him at his current distance, but I'll keep my money to myself when things get long. Of course, you've always got a Smarty Jones or War Emblem who screws things up for us pedigree geeks! · 463 days ago ·

  • AndyScoggin · Gary, According to Rodriguez Vyjack was, and still is to some extent, a real handful to train and thus the gelding. I think that is the main reason he won his MSW at 17-1. · 471 days ago ·

‏@DerbyContenders: Nashua S. 4th-place finisher Darwin is sidelined & will target a BEL or SAR return.
Status update on Darwin? No works since the Nashua S. He looked like a monster compared to the other colts. Cue TV's 'roid comment below.
Shanghai Bobby wrapped up the two-year-old championship with a determined victory in the BC Juvenile but his Kentucky Derby 2013 contender stock plummeted, along with the rest of the Juvenile field.Read More
Not sure if this one would've won today, but after having to take up that sharply on the rail, he really had no chance. He's a lot better than the 4th suggests
