  • Northport · I had been hearing since last week that they were leaning towards the shallower competition in the Duty Free. I've always thought that she was more effective over 1m2f and upwards but I guess we will see! · 28 days ago ·
  • kaitlinefree1 · why would they use the Dubai Duty Free, a $5,000,000 race, as a prep? i think they're going for less competition here only · 28 days ago ·
super excited about her heading to the Dubai World Cup!

  • paul.nathan.946 · 0 chance of the fugue running over 1m 1f lol. will be the sheema or world cup most likely world cup weaker field than the sheema · 30 days ago ·
It’s no secret to regular readers of this blog that there are not many horses currently in training which I hold in higher regard than the brilliant English mare, The Fugue. A winner of her debut as a juvenile back in 2011, the now five-year-old John Gosden trained daughter of Dansili has not only b...Read More

Taking nothing away from Dominant who ran a monster race in the Hong Kong Vase, but if The Fugue's ever gotten a worse ride from William Buick than she got in this race I haven't seen. She was positioned perfectly early on, almost in the box seat. But why Buick allowed her to keep getting shuffled further and further back as the race progressed is a mystery to me? She should've never been in the position to have to check off the heals of Feuerblitz if she'd been ridden correctly by Buick throughout. Maybe it's fair to say Buick has ridden The Fugue well in her European races, but he hasn't ridden her well at all in two different Breeders Cup appearances and now the Hong Kong appearance being his worst ride ever on her, IMO.

  • yukichan · Having watched the race now...one would have to agree...was expecting better riding from Buick, at his level and experience. · 131 days ago ·

  • CauseForConcern · Not really stating a conspiracy, but, when you can have all numbers involved, and exclude the first three favorites from the first 3 positions, I would think the payoff would be more generous. I understand the 10 cent bet, for we had a 10 cent bet, that cashed three times. Just looking at it from a greedy standpoint(ha!!). · 161 days ago ·
  • tmallios1 · The favorites where not strong favorites,there was not a 3/5 or prohibitive chalk to finish off the board that would of shaken things up.No the 10 cent bet is good for the small player,it has destroyed the supers for big players.Now to many hit the all button on 3/4 slots.So can no longer get value.Personally, the Dq was absolute destruction. Such is the game we play. · 161 days ago ·
Three-year old Magician showed impressive turn of foot when he zipped down the center of the track to nip The Fugue in the final strides of the Breeders' Cup Turf.Read More

  • kay.robinett · macer, as far as I know, Point of Entry will be running. he is a high quality horse, but people have questions considering that it will be his first start after a long injury layoff. · 173 days ago ·
  • buckpasser · I like POE, but am very unhappy about there not being a race before the BC. I am surprised at how he has been handled by Shug, if he is indeed calling the shots, of which I have some doubts. I believe he would do better with a prep after the injury. · 173 days ago ·
