  • ILuvTurfRacing · If John Gosden so chooses to bring them both to America for the BC F&M Turf? He's got Izzi Top with a "win and your in" for winning the G1 Pretty Polly Stakes in Ireland. She just finished 2nd in the G1 Prix De l'Opera at Longchamp on Arc day, Sunday. He also has star 3YO filly, The Fugue, with a "win and your in" slot for her win in the G1 Nassau Stakes at Goodwood earlier in the season, too. Both of those fillies could be huge players in the F&M Turf if Gosden brings them? It sound like The Fugue is pretty certain to be sent but I haven't heard yet one way or another if Izzi Top is going to be sent to Santa Anita or not? · 557 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · I can't think of any right off the top of my head. Groupie Doll has had a stellar year, even finishing on the board against males and at distances that were not her best. · 558 days ago ·

  • BrianZipse · I liked it just fine, she took over the race when she needed to, and Nicole H and Derwin's Star are not grade 3 mares in my mind. Turbulent Descent is right at the top of my BC F&M Sprint list as of today. · 603 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · You know me, Brian. I liked her a lot last year, and I still like her. With that being said, I STILL haven't watched the replay. · 603 days ago ·
