While just over 3 months away the Breeders Cup Distaff brings up this question. If Abel Tasman keeps winning, Unique Bella is back and ready to run, and Songbird is in top form, who does Mike Smith choose to ride. In my opinion last week was an indication that he will stay with Songbird. He could have ridden West Coast for Baffert in the Los Alamitos Derby but went to Delaware Park instead. As Hollendorfer trains both Songbird and Unique Bella I would think Smith would have his choice between them. One thing is certain. Whatever his decision, many jockey agents will be scrambling for the high class leftovers.
Entered Sunday at Del Mar. Makes his turf debut vs. Sonneteer.
Look at Euro weights and especially steeplechase and hurdle races: MOST tote near 155 160 ROUTINELY
has someone any info? Is she in training?
1st- Stainless 2nd- Snowfire 3rd- Dream It Is 4th- Pacific Gale
Does anybody think Arrogate's weight will affect the way he runs his race? The 126 is making me a little nervous.
Welp, worked a slow 4f in 1:04 on the grass today. Just wasting time!
7f work today in 1:23 4/5, that's a serious move. Wonder if that will have Bob rethinking his plans to skip the longer preps next weekend.
I think Arrogate could win this race by 20 lengths, despite his weight of 126.
I hope his weight doesn't affect the way he runs his race.

Will be aimed at making her next start in the Prix Morny where she'll likely go up against another undefeated G3-winning filly in Zonza amongst others!
Right now Brametot's course for the rest of the year is as follows - August 15th is his planned return in the Prix Guillaume d'Ornano - Haras du Logis Saint-Germain in Deauville, then the plan is to take him on his first trip out of France to contest the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown before being aimed at his year end goal of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. They're being as ambitious with him as they probably should have been with Almanzor last year. It's a pretty big ask for a colt whose running style is consistently going from last to first!
Baffert said this morning that he is not sending Mor Spirit , Cupid or Arrogate to Saratoga for the Whitney...Looks like Gun Runner is going to take home another G1.
NOT owned by the Zayats. Owned by Coolmore America. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e626c0c307a367f4715027f890a31fed43e2295573973144c3b85e6442b73108.png
Very positive reviews of Del Mar dirt surface, particularly new banking, from riders. Kickback said to be "10 times better."
What ever happened to Big Trouble...
Even clever people can be ignorant to the obvious, maybe it's the counsel that surrounds them? Trainer is not in Question..Just the possibility of change. Wisdom of a matter usually reveals through time..Classic Empire is of main concern. ..You out there Clever One?

From this morning's Racing Post web-site: Trainer Saeed Bin Suroor has revealed that Thunder Snow's autumn campaign will be geared around getting him to Ascot for the G1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on British Champions Day in October. Suroor said Thunder Snow will likely swerve running in the upcoming G1 Sussex Stakes at Goodwood in favor of a return trip to France for the G1 Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville at a mile. Suroor said the G1 Juddmonte International Stakes over 10-1/2f at York is also under consideration for Thunder Snow as well. According to the article, he will also return to Dubai for the 2018 Dubai Carnival where he will aimed at the G1 Dubai World Cup itself.
