  • ILuvTurfRacing · Been awhile between drinks for Wigmore Hall, but it's good to see him back in the winners circle again. It's kind ironic that races at 10 to 10-1/2f have always been believed to be Wigmore Hall's best trip. Yet the both of the G1 wins he has now on his resume' have come at 12f. That must be the High Chaparral coming out in him, LOL. · 579 days ago ·

  • Rossington · There's really no getting around this point in 2011. The middle distance turf horses that have been shipping over to North America from Europe are just superior to the middle distance turf horses from North America themselves. That's not a knock, just a fact. Cape Blanco, Treasure Beach, Stacelita, and now Wigmore Hall have all shipped to North America and won at least one major G1 turf stakes. In the case of Cape Blanco, he's shipping back from Ireland for a crack at his third G1 turf stakes in North America. For as good as Acclamation has been carrying the middle distance turf banner for America this season. It's difficult to see past one of the European contenders winning this year's BC Turf. · 942 days ago ·
