Older Comments about the 2011 Nassau Stakes (G1)...

Another classy win by Midday, who has now completed a hat trick in the Nassau. She will probably be pointed toward the Yorkshire Oaks in mid-August, but may not be coming over for the Breeders' Cup. Sir Henry Cecil mentioned as much after the Nassau, since he's not particularly fond of Churchill Downs (or running under the lights).
It looks about 95% certain that Midday, Snow Fairy, Crystal Capella, Misty For Me, Sajjhaa, and Theysken's Theory are all going to line up against each other on Saturday at Goodwood in the G1 Nassau Stakes. If all of these fillies and mares listed make it to the same starting gate? I think it will rival last year's G1 Yorkshire Oaks field as one of the strongest G1's for fillies and mares that I've seen a very long time. The Nassau looks like it's certainly going to be a very competitive renewal this year.

  • medlocke · @footlick, You may be right about Misty For Me? Although, she has also won in G1 company at Longchamp in France. But I think you'd still have to say that the Curragh in Ireland seems to be her favorite surface. Midday's won the past 2 running's of the Nassau Stakes, and loves the surface at Goodwood. But I think any of the 4, Misty For Me, Midday, Snow Fairy, or Crystal Capella, at their best, are all capable of winning this race, IMO. · 1399 days ago
