One thing, among many, that I learned from my visit to Coolmore was that they grow all their own alfalfa and grains for their operation and Ballydoyle's.
She was the sale topper last night at the Del Mar Paddock Sales. Bought for $750K by "an undisclosed Japanese buyer" for her broodmare prospect. She might continue racing through this year and then head overseas. Sushi Empire was sold for $275K and will probably continue to race through this year before heading to Kentucky as a broodmare.
Odd start--my choice Tapestry got a bit worked up with long, long delay. Smashing Oaks for Team AOB with 1-2 and young Ana O'Brien bringing in Beyond Brilliance for 4th.
I did not realize Ana will be first female jockey to ride in the Oaks, and that all the O'Brien kids (4) are, or will soon be, jockeys. Her interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klokN-AiHAY
*sent out in Saturday's Irish Oaks that is.
Most interesting note about Beyond Brillance, 1 of 5 sent out by AOB, is that she will be ridden by Ana O'Brien, daughter of Aiden, sister of Joseph.
Extremely frustrating!!! Why do some of my posts appear in the comment blog and some do not? I posted a cool picture of Sunday Silence shrine that I wanted to share with all. Please go to his page to see it ; )
I don't get it. My comment appears here. But my comment posted on Sunday Silence does not appear? Along with a photo of his stall "shrine" at Nothern Farm? Plz go check out the photo I posted on SS page...
Maybe named after on of my favorite artists?!
Alls well with Nelly! Planning her next mating: http://wwww.justhorseracing.com.au/news/australian-racing/perfect-pregnancy-for-black-caviar/258325
