  • Northport · They often don't. But, he is only 4 and maybe benefitted from the time off · 240 days ago
Three-year old Reckless Abandon, a Group 1 winner in England and France, has been retired and will stand the 2014 breeding season at Darley's Kildangan Stud in Co. Kildare, Ireland. A fee has yet to be announced.
Reckless Abandon is reported to be lame and has been scratched from Saturday's G1 Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock.
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Kingsgate Native a scratch in the Sprint Cup now, also. Kind of surprised at his being scratched given how well he ran at Haydock when he won the G2 Temple Stakes back in May. · 475 days ago
Reckless Abandon suffered his first career loss today at Haydock in the G2 Temple Stakes, finishing 3rd behind Kingsgate Native in 1st and Swiss Spirit in 2nd.
  • yukichan · Good for the old guy, Kingsgate Native. When he's on, he's really on. I thought RA had it, only to be consumed by KN and Swiss Spirit at the end. It's hard to not feel happy for this 8 year old gelding and his connections. · 579 days ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · @yukichan, I agree. I've also been a fan of Kingsgate Native. He's ran well throughout his career at Haydock Park, and after that big effort over Guineas weekend in the G3 Palace House Stakes where he finished 2nd, closing hard at Sole Power, I had a hunch he might run a big race in the Temple Stakes. · 579 days ago
Saturday's G2 Temple Stakes at Haydock should tell us alot about how Reckless Abandon will fare at Ascot in the G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes and/or the G1 King's Stand Stakes next month during the royal meeting. Reckless Abandon puts his unbeaten record on the line at Haydock against older horses for the first time, some of them proven G1 sprinters like Tangerine Trees, Sole Power, & Maarek.

  • travel_vic · don't know how many 3 y/o sprinters I can name who handed older their collective heads...Very Subtle over Groovy, ring a bell? · 579 days ago
Speaking to the Racing Post web-site about 12 hours ago, trainer Clive Cox announced a very ambitious beginning to the unbeaten Reckless Abandon's 3yo season. Cox told the Racing Post the G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Ascot during the royal meeting in June is an obvious place to start, and he'll likely run in the G1 King's Stand Stakes also. Cox said a prep race in the G2 Temple Stakes at Haydock is likely the way he'll go before taking Reckless Abandon to Ascot. Speaking only for myself, I'm happy to hear that Clive Cox is eyeing the 5 & 6f sprint races with Reckless Abandon. There's no question this horse has an electric turn of foot, but I've never gotten the feeling that a tough 8f over the rolly mile at Newmarket in the G1 English 2000 Guineas would've suited him. Hats off to Cox for taking this colt in the direction he needs to go!!
Awesome horse.
  • UnionRagsRules · pretty awesome should I say · 775 days ago
  • northport · I'm excited to see if he and dawn approach ever meet up during their careers. Godolphin/Darley has a nice looking chance at the classics next year · 775 days ago
Keeps his unbeaten record in tact by winning the G1 Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket.
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Reckless Abandon had to work really hard to get this win. His Middle Park Stakes victory didn't come nearly as easy as Dawn Approach's Dewhurst Stakes victory came for him. He was sternly challenged by both Moohaajim and Gale Force Ten who hit the wire right with Reckless Abandon. The official winning margin a neck between Reckless Abandon and Moohaajim, and a neck between Moohaajim and Gale Force Ten. · 803 days ago
  • CreativeCause · wow it looked like he wasn't going to make it · 802 days ago
Middle Park Stakes next up for this star. This will be the 'acid test'
The unbeaten winner of the G2 Norfolk Stakes, G2 Prix Robert Papin, and G1 Prix Morny has been sold to Darley, but will remain with trainer Clive Cox until the end of the 2013 season according a story on the Racing Post web-site. Since Sheikh Mohammed is the primary owner of both Darley and Godolphin, my hunch is that he'll eventually end up with Dawn Approach in Godolphin blue.

  • ILuvTurfRacing · @northport, the story on Racing Post says he's supposed to stay with current trainer, Clive Cox, until the end of the 2013 season. My hunch is that he may be retired anyway at the end of his 3yr.old season? · 842 days ago
  • northport · Yeah, I read that too and assumed as much. I just don't want him to go the either of the main godolphin trainers · 841 days ago
4 for 4 this horse can run! Too bad he's in Great Britin, it would be nice to have him here.
Lay great hopes on him
Now a G1 winner! Prix Morny taken down in style today
Can we add him to the undefeated watch?
Brilliant name!
