It appears that it's gonna be a very quick turnaround for Olympic Glory. Al Shaqab racing manager Harry Herbert announced today to the European racing media that just 8 days after winning the G1 Lockinge Stakes at Newbury, Olympic Glory will travel to Longchamp for a head to head face off with Cirrus Des Aigles on Sunday in the G1 Prix d'Ispahan over the extended 9f.
Olympic Glory wins the G1 Lockinge Stakes at Newbury. Tullius was 2nd and a very promising beginning for Verrazano on turf finishing 3rd!!!

  • jonquil · Oh no I'm not saying that this run by Tonto was a disappointment. I feel the ride was a bad strategy for him. His best races are always when he comes from mid-field to the front and I think he would've done far better if he'd been ridden that way today. It is the jockey I am disappointed in, not Tonto. Never Tonto. Also, I did not expect Tonto to do well today as this ground isn't his ideal. It is okay for him and he does fine with it, but the softer the ground, the better his chances and this was some fast ground. I was pleased with the horse himself - he looks fine. :) · 56 days ago
  • Euro trash · That is good to hear, jonquil. As I said I am not watching today, so all the information I am getting is from you, ILTR and paul · 56 days ago
Won the Lockinge Stakes (are you really surprised?)!

Due to the Olympics, I'll be posting less comments. Have to support Team USA!
This news is via RacingPost.com: Olympic Glory has been chosen to represent trainer Richard Hannon in the G1 Breeders Cup Mile , but his G1 winning stablemate, Toronado, will remain at home after his season was declared finished today. The news comes just 24 hours after Toronado participated in a racecourse workout at Lingfield on Tuesday, the first time the G1 Sussex Stakes winner had been back to a racecourse since undergoing a procedure to aid his breathing after trailing home last in the G1 Juddmonte International Stakes at York back in August. So it looks like we'll be seeing Olympic Glory at Santa Anita but sadly no Toronado.

  • jonquil · I heard they looked subdued with Toronado's workout at Lingfield. I guess subdued in this case means not satisfied that he's up to scratch. :/ I'd kind of hoped that it wasn't that and that they were just keeping things under wraps, but yeah. Not happening. But! At least they had said there would be a good chance he'd be over next year. Hopefully that'll be something to look forward too - and if he's not doing that great post-op, then it's likely he wouldn't run a great race if he really did come over so it's probably for the best. · 262 days ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · @travel_vic, I'm not as much worried about Olympic Glory's "late of foot" as you put as I am him likely not getting the kind of ground he's best over, which is obiously softer ground with some cut in it. I think adding the blinkers improved his tending to be lazy at times in his races last time out in the QE II. But I can't help but think Toronado would be much more effective over the kind of ground they're likely to have at Santa Anita. All that being said, it's hard bash Olympic Glory too much with a career record of 10-6-3-0. His only out of money finish to date being the G1 French 2000 Guineas. But TJMO. · 262 days ago
Might be going to the BC after this - decision will be announced later in the week: http://www.richardhannonracing.co.uk/news.htm

  • paul.nathan.946 · The owner seems to have wanted to keep them apart, Toro was defiantly bc bound too imo BUT they never confirmed it they only ever said it was a possibility and now they are considering taking OG there is now a possibility they could put away toro for next year. I don't think it will happen but its now more likely. · 265 days ago
  • paul.nathan.946 · also what interests me is the bookies odds OG is second favorite at 3/1 over toro at 5/1 is this because they think OG is the better horse or is there now doubt's that toro will turn up? · 265 days ago
Olympic Glory takes advantage of his love for soft ground to storm clear and win the G1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes by about 4 lengths. Top Notch Tonto ran a blinder to finish 2nd with Kingbarns a 1/2 length further back in 3rd and Dawn Approach 4th.

  • ILuvTurfRacing · Toronado seems to be the one who gets the most attention, but Olympic Glory has really ammassed quite an impressive record himself. His win today runs his career record to date to 10-6-3-0. · 266 days ago
  • jonquil · Kingsbarns did great for such a long time off on ground he was bound to not enjoy, so hopefully he'll be well next year and able to race. I really fancied Olympic Glory's chances more than Maxios and Dawn Approach (by a lot, this just wasn't DA ground). I do agree that Toronado does get more attention, but he's been in more of those big races that people tend to go crazy for than Olympic Glory. I don't actually think there's that much between them, but they seem to have different preferences as to ground. · 266 days ago
choisir is an australian sire ran in england, very very good sprinter and miler, the progeny of him currently runing in India , very fast ,take lead and able to hold it up to 1700 meters ,then collapse.
OG, middle initial M for OMG ! Watch out in the Kentucky Derby if connections ship this way
When talking about the best juveniles in Europe right now this colt definitely has to be in the mix of that conversation now. Olympic Glory ran his career record to 5-4-1-0 with an impressive win in the G1 Prix Jean-Luc Legardere at Longchamp earlier today. He broke his maiden first time out at Goodwood before being beaten 3/4 of a length by Dawn Approach in the G2 Coventry Stakes at Ascot. Since that 2nd place effort in the Coventry Stakes at Ascot in June, Olympic Glory has rolled up wins in the G2 Superlative Stakes on Newmarket's July Course, and the G2 Vintage Stakes at Goodwood prior to his G1 score at Longchamp today. Richard Hannon's cup really runneth over with talented juveniles in his yard this season, and Olympic Glory is certainly right at the top of the list among them.
