Exciting news! Fox Hill Farm and Siena Farm have purchased Brazilian TC winner, Bal a Bali! He will try dirt! Already eligible for the BC Turf.
By about 5 lengths, but pulling away with each stride, in hand. She looped the field 4-wide after spotting the field 3 lengths from the gate.
Yes, named after the famous impressionist, Mary Cassatt from Philadelphia.
Cassatt is back and with a vengeance! She destroys the field in the 6th race at Delaware today, waltzing home finishing the 5f test in 57 and change. Had plenty left galloping out as though her best is yet to come when she tackles the two-turn races! This is one special racehorse!
Cassatt's back in training and firing bullets! Bred to go long, hopes are high if she stays sound.
Yes, tm, I agree with you, totally! I think we are basically same the same thing, you just put it better than I did! :) My point was, you'd expect him to tire late after tugging and going those fast fractions early. But, his daddy had the light bub go on after his sprint and he (Old Fashioned) learned to relax early in his races. I'm not yet ready to give up on this guy, and if he does learn to relax, then he just may have more to offer in the 2-turn stretch run.
This full sister to Cross Traffic is back working at Palm Meadows for Chad Brown (Fox Hill Farm). Worked 4 furlongs in 50 flat today. Chad said it was just what they wanted. She's supposedly full of talent, but been off for many months, so will attempt to bring her back slowly.
Nice race by the winner, but have to agree, Thirteen Arrows shined in this one! Very talented filly, who according to Porter, they believe her best distance is 7 furlongs to possibly a one-turn mile. She should be in the winner's circle very soon, hopefully at a different track that isn't so speed-favoring!
I know you are probably right, judging by his first two races, which is all we have to go by. Part of me, though, thinks he needed this longer race to work some of that freshness out of him. Which I believe it did, as Rosie let him go at a pace he was sure to tire down the lane from. Before I totally make up my mind about what his short-range plans should be, I'd like to hear how he's training for Larry Jones, is he relaxing better, etc. I certainly wouldn't want to change this talented colts approach, but I'm not sure you'd have to in order to get him to relax better early -- he could still move at a nice speed, but do it more easily, and I'm not sure yet that after having a 2-turn race under his belt he will not have grown enough to train more effectively, making his next effort an easier trip.
Don't see any numbers on The Trunk Monkey's performance yesterday -- no preliminary beyer??? Anyone that has it or can get it, I'd be most appreciative. :) Thought, all in all, he did pretty well, especially given that fast first half, and it being his first time going 2-turns.
