VICTOR ESPINOZA (The Usual Q.T.) -- "He's learned to relax; it's made all the difference for him. I was just sitting back there behind those front two (Acclamation and Enriched) and they were going in and out. I thought for a second (on the turn) I was going to go down inside, but then I decided I d...Read More
I think possibly 12 furlongs may be a better distance for him. But it would be hard to count out Loup Breton in the Eddie Read Handicap. This colt has raced well in France, Ireland, the UK, and America. He ran 2nd in the 2008 Prix Du Jockey Club (French Derby) to Vision D' Etat. Who's one of the best international turf horses in the world. Having also won the Prix Ganay, Prince of Wales Stakes, and the Hong Kong Cup.

  • medlocke · As the likes of Tuscan Evening and Caribbean Sunset before him. It will not at all surprise me to see Crowded House come to America and flourish. When this colt won the Racing Post Trophy as a 2yr.old at Doncaster over very fast turf. He let loose with an incredible turn of foot to blow by Jukebox Jury for the win. Crowded House also showed excellent synthetic track form over the Tapeta on Meydan during the Dubai Carnival. Finishing a half-length behind Allybar in the Al-Maktoum Challenge Rd. 2. And of course, Allybar ended up in that 3 horse photo between himself, Lizard's Desire, and Gloria De Campeao to decide the Dubai World Cup. Allybar also beat Presvis during the carnival, too. · 1363 days ago ·
