Rip has been retired...
Hot off the press. On both RacinPost.com's web-site. And ThoroughbredTimes.com's web-site. There will be no second attempt at a Breeders Cup win for Rip Van Winkle. The 4yr.old son of Galileo was retired today to stand stud next his sire at Coolmoore in Ireland in 2011. Aidan O'Brien told RacingPost.com in England that Rip Van Winkle had suffered a minor set beck, and that to bring him to the Breeders Cup this year would be "forcing it." Therefore, Rip Van Winkle is now retired. So Fame and Glory is now "iffy" at best for the B.C. Turf for Ballydoyle. And Rip Van Winkle is now retired. I'm sure O'Brien is likely to send Joshua Tree to the B.C. Turf now. Off of his Patteson Canadian International win. But beyond that now? Who knows?
May 15th, 2010 is shaping up to be a very interesting race at Newbury in the 2010 Juddmonte Lockinge Stakes. Alexandros, beaten just a whisker by Virtual in the 09' Lockinge, along with Calming Influence, and Sirocco Breeze, all three coming back off of excellent efforts in the 2010 Dubai Racing Carnival, are all three scheduled starters in the race. Along with them are 09' B.C. Classic starter Rip Van Winkle, 09' B.C. Mile starters, Delegator and Zacinto, the very capable stakes horses Border Patrol, Paco Boy and Pipedreamer all slated to start in the race. This will be the first start of the 2010 racing season for Rip Van Winkle, Delegator, Zacinto, Paco Boy, Pipedreamer, and Border Patrol. Alexandros, Calming Influence, and Sirocco Breeze are all coming off of 3 starts each in Dubai.
Having watched the replays of his races with Sea The Stars, and some of his races where he beat the likes of Delegator, Zacinto, and finished ahead of Mastercrafsman, this is a horse to be both feared and respected by all of his American counterparts in the Breeders Cup Classic.
