  • railbird33 · That was an amazing stretch run after Buick's "Borel-like" trip. Another Irish shipper to put in the mix for the BC Turf race in Nov. · 1334 days ago ·
  • mshutty · Interesting quotes from the race--William Buick (Debussy)-- "We were very tight for room. I thought 'Oh no, I'm not going to have room' but we finally got clear and he was able to run his race" Buick is Norwegian born and rides first call for John Gosden He also won the Dubai Sheema Classic aboard Dar Re Me. John Gosden--"I've been trying to win this race for 28 years" Ramon Dominguez (Gio Ponti)--"I thought I had enough to hang on. Once I got clear, the horse was idling a bit-maybe looking at the stands or something. The trip was great. I had a lot of horse turning for home." · 1334 days ago ·
Castleton Lyons’ Gio Ponti, who captured last summer’s Grade I Arlington Million as the fans’ favorite, looms as an even stronger 7-5 choice in the morning line as he faces nine rivals in Saturday’s 28th running of the centerpiece race of the Chicago Thoroughbred racing season – run at a mile and a ...Read More
  • medlocke · The three European turf horses that will run against Gio Ponti in the Arlington Million, I have seen all three of them in their races in 2010. Debussy, if Gio Ponti is not on his "A" game, could be a real threat. He's really a bit better horse than even his numbers suggest. Debussy won the G3 Huxley Stakes at Chester back in May. Beating a very good field of rivals, and looking pretty impressive in the race. He most recently just finished 4th in the Sky Bet York Stakes won by Summit Surge. Who is also in today's field. Tazeez is also another Euro horse that could be dangerous to Gio Ponti. He seems to be improving every race. Finishing 3rd behind Byword and Twice Over in the Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal-Ascot back in June. And most recently having again finished 3rd at Newmarket in the Princess of Wales Stakes. Beaten by Sans Frontiers and Redwood. But Tazeez has every chance to win the Princess of Wales, and also finished ahead of Spanish Moon, who was a heavy favorite to win the race. But if Gio Ponti runs to the form he capable of running? He should become a back to back winner of the Arlington Million, IMO. · 1336 days ago ·

  • humphrey · That turf course is different than most as they leave the grass quite a bit longer than the manicured surfaces on the West coast. · 1343 days ago ·
