Well-bred California stallion Sought After, best known as the sire of grade I winner Masochistic, was euthanized recently at Joe Daehling's Daehling Ranch after developing laminitis in both front feet. He was 15. The son of Seeking the Gold covered about a dozen mares in 2015 at the farm near Elk Grove, Calif., Daehling said. Unraced, Sought After was bred in Kentucky by B. Wayne Hughes. His dam is multiple French group winner Smolensk, a daughter of Danzig who was grade I-placed in England. He was a half brother to grade III winner Can the Man (Into Mischief ) and listed stakes winnerMartha's Moon (Malibu Moon ), and was a grandson of 1982 Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) winner Blush With Pride. This is the family of Broodmare of the Year Better Than Honour, champion and classic winner Rags to Riches, and classic winner Jazil. Article on Bloodhorse
His dam is a full sister to Giant's Causeway, he handled dirt just fine, would be cool to see him run in the Classic.
Add Gleneagles to the mix and it's a hell of a race, I'm looking forward to the Woodward and the JCGC, see who enters and steps up in the division
Trainer Shug McGaughey tells DRF'S David Grening that Honor Code, the Metropolitan Handicap and Whitney Stakes winner, will “most likely” make his next start in the Grade 2, $400,000 Kelso Handicap, a one-mile race at Belmont Park on Oct. 3, trainer Shug McGaughey said Tuesday. McGaughey says that they could go here instead of the Jockey Club Gold Cup because he feels the Kelso would give him a better chance at getting pace and feels the spacing is right for him going a mile than 1 1/4 before the Breeders Cup Classic.

Baffert says that AP came back to California in good shape and says he's gotten better over the past few days.
