I guess the Euros forgot their passports, Strong Suit tried to tell me this at the gate...
Strong Suit, pointing to the Arcadia Stakes on Feb. 2, worked five furlongs in 59.80 for Simon Callaghan, who has Jamie Spencer coming in from Europe for the ride. “He’s the owner’s retained rider,” Callaghan explained. “The horse worked very well. I couldn’t be happier.”
I'm sure going into the 2011 season, Strong Suit was not likely the card that was on trainer Richard Hannon's mind that he would have to play in this year's Breeders Cup Mile. But I'm also quite certain that Hannon didn't foresee the early retirement of Canford Cliffs either. But thing's having turned out like they have, Hannon announced to England's Racing Post today that the 3yr.old son of Rahy will indeed make his next start in the G1 Prix De l' Foret in France, and then come to Churchill Downs for the Breeders Cup Mile. Strong Suit is certainly not a Canford Cliffs. But he is a talented 3yr.old. He won the G2 Coventry Stakes for Hannon as a 2yr.old in 2010. So far in 2011, Strong Suit has defeated Codemaster in the G3 Jersey Stakes at Ascot, and he also defeated Red Jazz in the G2 Lennox Stakes at Goodwood. In Strong Suit's only G1 start this season, he was officially announced as having finished 3rd in the G1 Prix Jean-Prat at Longchamp. A race that saw Mutual Trust, Zoffany, and Strong Suit all 3 hit the wire together in a blanket finish. A finish that had to be sorted out by a photo. Strong Suit's only out of money finish in 2011 was in his seasonal debut in the G3 Greenham Stakes at Newbury. He finished 6th in a race totally dominated by Frankel.
