No Nay Never nomore‏

No Nay Never 615 X 400

 

No Nay Never returned to Europe to continue where he left off as he dominated the Group 1 Prix Morny to provide Wesley Ward with his first Group 1 winner.

An undefeated two year old who was exiting a scintillating victory at Royal Ascot, No Nay Never returned to Europe with dead aim on Group 1 glory at Deauville this Sunday. With Joel Rosario replaced by the recogniseable face of David Flores, the two year old had also drawn the attention and investment of Coolmore since his Royal Ascot triumph.

With rain showers an ever present factor at Deauville on Saturday night, the conditions had prompted Ward to make considerations on withdrawing his star two year old son of Scat Daddy, but the decision was made to continue with Plan A and run with the ultimate Group 1 prize on the line.

Bursting out of the stalls No Nay Never was keen to lead over his rivals with Jallota the only horse seemingly able to go with the fast pace set by the American raider. An imposing two year old whom is considerably larger than his rivals, No Nay Never never looked like stopping, tanking along with a real zest for sprint racing as he comfortably ran out a one length victor and provide trainer Wesley Ward with his first Group 1 winner. 

"Royal Ascot was very special, I've had some success over there but everybody has been so kind coming over here" said Ward, "Everybody is afraid to come over here because it's a long way to go home when you get beat."

"Now that I've done this in a couple of different countries I'm hoping that a couple of my buddies will come over and enjoy racing in Europe."

Ward confirmed that No Nay Never will now return to America with an end of season campaign considered once the team have returned home.

Undefeated prior to this race, Vorda finished a comfortably beaten second with Rizeena ensuring a filly 2-3 by running on strongly at the finish for third.

Just what the game needs MORE fantasy.

To have the experience of owning, breeding, racing a lovable horse like this one, try playing Horse Racing Fantasy at www.horseracegame.com developed by Horse Racing Simulation LLC. A game second to none that can be beaten only by real horse racing.
I think you're right Northport. I see the G1 Middle Park Stakes at 6f being a more likely target for No Nay Never than the Dewhurst Stakes at 7f. Also, not trying to burst your bubble or anything EP Taylor, but after this horse finishes his 2yo season I'd say it's more likely than not you'll see Aidan O'Brien training him for his 3yo season now that he's owned exclusively by Coolmore. Assuming the English Guineas next May is even a target for him it's likely that Aidan O'Brien would be at Newmarket with him instead of Wesley Ward, IMO.

Kentucky > Dirt, that is.
Sounds good, let us know who the Derby colt(s) might be when you hear. They should really give it a go 1 year.
I would guess that the Middle Park is next, I can't see them going to 7 furlongs just yet.
This horse should be in the Turf Sprint. I don't think there will be a Breeders cup for No Nay Never. They will probably run in one of the big 2 year old races at Newmarket. Probably the Dewhurst stakes. I read it is 7f which should be right up his alley. I just HOPE Mr. ward gets to train this colt up to the 2000 Guineas. This is great news for American racing. American bred horse, trained by an American in England, and it's possibly a Guineas horse.
Which Breeders' Cup race is now the question? to be continued...
