From AtTheRaces.com: Wesley's Ward's talented 2YO filly with a blistering turn of foot that won the G2 Queen Mary Stakes last month at Royal-Ascot appears likely to return to the UK to take on older's for the first time in the G1 Nunthorpe Stakes at York on August 21st. A 5f sprint open to 2+YO that if I'm not mistaken is part of the British Champion Series in the sprint division.
This an excerpt from the book that Peter Moody wrote about Black Caviar: "I've been around horses all of my life and I've never known one better than Black Caviar. I find judging her place in racing history hard because I'm so close to her, that's why I've always deferred to other people's opinions. What I do know is this, Black Caviar is the finest horse I've ever seen or worked with.......until I saw Frankel race on that Tuesday at Royal-Ascot(Queen Anne Stakes)" End Quote. I'd say that comment speaks volumes about Frankel's ability coming from a man who was writing this book about an unbeaten race-mare who was at the time the best sprinter in racing and may arguably be recognized by many as the greatest sprinter ever.
The most impressive thing about American Pharoah, at least to me, is how completely effortless his cruising speed is. A lot of horses have to be ask for run just to keep up with how fast he goes on cruise control. Really impressive!
I've corrected my post. It should've said still owned by Lloyd Williams not Robert Hickmont. Hickmont was Sea Moon's trainer in Australia.
Is still owned by Robert Hickmont, but is back in Europe in the yard of trainer John Oxx in Ireland. At present he holds an entry and could potentially race in the G3 Ballyroan Stakes over 12f at Leopardstown this coming Thursday.
The great run of races this season continues for Amazing Maria as she beats heavy favorite Ervedya, most recently seen winning the G1 Coronation Stakes, to win the G1 Prix Rothschild at Deauville. Amazing Maria has now won the G2 Duke of Cambridge Stakes, G1 Falmouth Stakes, & G1 Prix Rothschild in succession.
Big day for Coolmore co-owner Michael Tabor today as the David Wachman trained Legatissimo finishes 1st and the Aidan O'Brien trained Wedding Vow runs 2nd in the G1 Nassau Stakes at Goodwood, both bearing the Tabor blue & orange silks.
Al Shaqab Racing owned fillies fill the first 2 slots in the G3 Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood, as Amy Eria, shipped over from France for trainer Francois Rohaut gets the win with the Richard Hannon Jr. trained Osaila finishing 2nd.
Conceding weight all around, Muthmir holds off the fast charging Take Cover by a head to win the G2 King George Stakes at Goodwood. The win was Muthmir's second G2 win this season(G2 Prix du Gros-Chene) to go along with his 3rd place finish in the G1 King's Stand Stakes at Royal-Ascot. He's having a very decent season this year in the sprint division.
After running some very creditable races at the end of last season and early this season(3 straight 4th place finishes in the G1 Moyglare Stud Stakes, G1 Prix Marcel Boussac, & G1 English 1000 Guineas), Malabar finally gets a much deserved win over the boys at Goodwood, pulling comfortably away from Kool Kompany inside the final furlong to win the G3 Thoroughbred Stakes.
