Older Comments about Kingman...

After seeing the results of the Queen Anne Stakes & St James's Palace Stakes, a Kingman vs. Toronado head to head meeting in the G1 Sussex Stakes is not only a must see race, but a must happen race, IMO. I'll be hugely disappointed if Richard Hannon, Jr. or John Gosden either one sidestep the Sussex Stakes if both of their horses are fit and ready to run come late July. Kingman is clearly the best 3yo turf miler in Europe and though I suppose at present you could also make a case for Olympic Glory being the best older turf miler, I'd still be willing to bet Hannon, Jr. & Richard Hughes would say Toronado is the better horse of the two at a mile. This could be the most anticipated meeting at a mile on turf we've seen in a long time.

  • EP Taylor · I would still like to see the English Guineas winner run again, and come from off the pace(like in the guineas) then doing all the running up front himself. I think if they switch back to their Guineas tactics they could possibly turn the tables on Kingman......maybe. Through him into the mix for the Sussex. · 43 days ago

Kingman makes it look too easy in the St James's Palace Stakes and gets his revenge on Night of Thunder for the English Guineas loss. A Kingman vs. Toronado in the G1 Sussex Stakes at Goodwood in late July is a must see!!

  • EP Taylor · Ok good to hear. What was your impression of Night of Thunder's run?. It will be several hourse before I can watch all the Day 1 replays, aside from the Queen Anne. · 44 days ago
  • Sullivan · He ran quite well a mounted a challenge on the front end but no one was a match for Kingman who was much the best. That Outstrip (who tracked Night of Thunder and then mounted a small challenge) and War Command (who circled the field and passed horses late) ran so well makes me wonder about the quality of the field of this St. James's Palace. · 44 days ago
I just read on the Racing Post web-site that this year's royal meeting at Ascot is expected to start out with the current ground of good/good to firm in places. Since the G1 St James's Palace Stakes is 1 of 3 marquee G1 races on day 1 along with the Queen Anne & King's Stand Stakes, you have to wonder if Kingman might not again be vulnerable to English 2000 Guineas winner Night of Thunder on that type of ground? Or even a horse like Toormore or War Command who will both surely improve on their respective English Guineas efforts.
  • ILuvTurfRacing · On ground rated soft/good to soft, Kingman is beast and I'm not sure even older turf milers would be able to beat him on that type of ground. But on ground he has to bounce over the top of versus being able to dig his toe in, his turn of foot isn't quite as dynamic. Just sayin... · 49 days ago
Even top older turf milers like Olympic Glory, Toronado, Sky Lantern, etc...will find beating this beast difficult if they run into Kingman in a race where he's got the kind of ground he thrives over, IMO.
  • ILuvTurfRacing · I had initially thought a Kingman vs. Toronado head to head match-up looked very appealing, but that would be a match-up of 2 horses where one thrives on fast ground(Toronado) and the other on soft ground(Kingman). I'm thinking now that a meeting between Kingman & Olympic Glory might be very interesting given how good Olympic Glory has been throughout his career on soft ground. · 68 days ago
Kingman bolts up and runs away from Shifting Power & Mustajeeb to win the G1 Irish 2000 Guineas in a romp!!
  • ILuvTurfRacing · This horse is clearly at his best on soft ground, or ground with a lot of ease in it at a minimum. Were I John Gosden and Teddy Grimthorpe, I think I would seriously consider some one mile G1 targets in France where 3yo are eligible to run for Kingman, I.E., Prix Jacque La Marois, Prix Du Moulin de Longchamp, where he'd be very likely to get if not soft ground but ground with a lot of ease, IMO. · 68 days ago
After going up and down the 2000 Guineas entries. There is no horse that can run with Kingman. The way he quickens with ease is almost Frankelish. His win in the Greenham and his gallop out after the wire shows this horse can stay and I hope he gets to prove it. Just an absolute pity it is not Sir Henry parading this talent tihis year, but best of luck to the horse and John Gosden.
Well after that can't have anyone else in the guineas this horse looks a potential star. exciting times can't wait for the guineas

  • ILuvTurfRacing · @EP Taylor, I'm not in any way suggesting your wrong. Just saying I hadn't heard that War Command will be going to the French 2000 Guineas instead of the English 2000 Guineas, and I read most of the European racing web-sites regularly. Seems kind of difficult to believe given the emphasis that Coolmore put on winning the English 2000 Guineas & Epsom Derby every year. Especially since War Command looks like Coolmore's best chance of winning at Newmarket, IMO. I have recently read that even though he still has the English Guineas entry that Australia is "unlikely" to go to Newmarket. The article I read said the Epsom Derby is his primary target and his connections are pondering taking him to York for the G2 Dante Stakes at 10-1/2f to prep for Epsom. As for calling Australia "all hype" paul.nathan.946, I think you've got him confused with the Dermot Weld trained colt he blasted at Leopardstown in the BC Juvenile Turf Trial, Free Eagle. Prior to that race, the racing media in Great Britain & Ireland were labeling Free Eagle nearly unbeatable and were all but ready to present him with the Epsom Derby trophy. · 110 days ago
To easy for Kingman. The 2000 Guineas is shaping up to be a real running this year
