What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Universal...

Universal fractured a pastern on the gallops and is now at Newmarket Equine Hospital. http://www.racingpost.com/news/live.sd?event_id=1096538&category=0
Boy, how much has this horse improved since Mark Johnston stepped him up in class from handicaps into patent stakes company!! A couple of weeks ago, Noble Mission came at Universal hard in the G3 John Porter Stakes and Universal held him off by a head. Today, Dandino came at him hard in the G2 Jockey Club Stakes and Universal held him off by about a head. Great ride by Joe Fanning. Well done to trainer Mark Johnston and connections.
  • jonquil · I believe I heard an interview somewhere where Mark Johnston or someone working with him said that they thought Universal would be their chance to do well at Meydan, but the horse ran poorly out there so they brought him back. When he got back his rider asked what they'd done with the horse back in Meydan because apparently he'd bulked up a good bit. So I guess the reason for Universal's improvement is running in Meydan? The step up in class certainly didn't hurt, either! :) · 270 days ago ·
