  • yukichan · Three yr olds have been pretty stellar at the Arc. Still, as big of a fan as I am of Camelot, I think Orfevre will be toughg to beat. I agree with ILTR in that his St. leger's effort might have taken something out of Camelot. It is really not the ideal prep for the Arc.... · 561 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · I watched it again along with his other races that I could get. He doesn't have a quick turn of foot and needs all of 1/4 mile to run an opponent down which he didn't get in the St. Leger. At the 1/4 pole he actually had to be settled and didn't start his run until 3/16 which by that time Encke got first run on him. The jockey rode with a bit to much confidence as though he we driving a car not riding a horse.I did 1mile 6 fur, that has to take a lot. I checked the times of the other St. Leger's run and it was right in the ball park as the others so aside from what I believe to be jockey error he was the best horse. I certainly wouldn't use that as a prep race for anything.Glad I caught your comments as I was thinking of wagering on him, but not now. · 561 days ago ·

  • MarcelloMarocco · Sorry not sure what happened there, but anyways it was Joseph and his cocky ride that lost the horse the race. Plus Barzalona schooling Joseph again...first in the Dubai World Cup then now in the St.Leger. If you are gonna give Barzalona a head start with a good horse he will beat Joseph every time. Simply out ridden. Now take down Camelot and put the ONLY triple Crown winner in his spot which is ORFEVRE! · 577 days ago ·

  • stevestylesclark · What other year would winning such a tough stretch of races like the English triple crown seem like a 1A to all racing fans because of a horse like Frankel. If Camelot pulls off the win, I will be extremely excited and impressed with such a feat. · 582 days ago ·

What is Camelot? Webster defines it as a time, place, or atmosphere of idyllic happiness. Nice. The horse isn’t bad either… When Camelot exploded home from his competition in the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy last fall at Doncaster, the highly touted juvenile colt was immediately made a strong winter b...Read More

  • AnnaK · Can you imagine that? Triple Crown winners on either side both in purple in white. If that were a movie we'd think it was so hokey. Camelot ran a great race. · 683 days ago ·

  • Mike in SB · The Triple Crown is not a big deal in England, I doubt that Camelot even runs in the St. Leger. This is the problem with having the English Triple Crown races spaced so far apart, by the time the St Legar comes around the 3 year olds are racing against older horses in the big European races. · 682 days ago ·

MASKED MARVEL showed he possesses stamina in abundance, while not lacking a turn of foot, as he gave trainer John Gosden and jockey William Buick back-to-back St Leger victories.It was a fourth win in the race for Gosden after Shantou (1996), Lucarno (2007) and Arctic Cosmos last year.Gosden said: "...Read More
  • rossington · Great race, and another very well ridden St. Leger by young William Buick!! When you see the replay of the race, you'll see that Masked Marvel was clearly much the best horse in the race today!! Even at the end of 1-3/4, it took Buick forever to pull Masked Marvel up!! · 951 days ago ·
