  • ILuvTurfRacing · If John Gosden so chooses to bring them both to America for the BC F&M Turf? He's got Izzi Top with a "win and your in" for winning the G1 Pretty Polly Stakes in Ireland. She just finished 2nd in the G1 Prix De l'Opera at Longchamp on Arc day, Sunday. He also has star 3YO filly, The Fugue, with a "win and your in" slot for her win in the G1 Nassau Stakes at Goodwood earlier in the season, too. Both of those fillies could be huge players in the F&M Turf if Gosden brings them? It sound like The Fugue is pretty certain to be sent but I haven't heard yet one way or another if Izzi Top is going to be sent to Santa Anita or not? · 558 days ago ·

  • CarolynBarg · Her workouts are just stellar, but when she gets on the track she doesn't seem to have her mojo working right. I think she's ready to me a mom, and she'll be sold at FT in November. She's a lovely horse and deserves retirement. · 539 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · I just can't agree that this year's field is bad, even in comparison with previous years. So far, possible contenders include 4 G1 winners, 4 G2 winners, and a G3 winner. Plus, you have 3 Dirt Mile veterans returning for another shot at the winner's circle. · 575 days ago ·
