Glad to see Well Armed's Dubai World Cup as one of your favorites, Fred. He had come back from a pelvic/hip fracture to win that race after a lot of personal care from Bill Casner. Unless something has changed, he now resides at Casner's farm just north of the D/FW Metroplex.
Thanks, cocoa, I missed him earlier. Now seeing Ron the Greek is listed as well. ( Mary, Are you out there?)
I saw that as well. I'm wondering if his wife will continue the breeding and/or racing operation in his absence.
Interesting to see that Metaboss is nominated to the UAE Derby; Big Cazanova, Constitution, Lea, Liam's Map, Golden Ticket, and Hopportunity are all nominated to the Godolphin Mile.
Mary, I tried some of those things earlier, and finally gave up because of the multiple hits with the words "crop report" as well. One other possibility could be that he is still at Fair Hill with Motion, since he has quietly maintained injured horses there (WtDW), but nothing obvious....Fun to search, but irritating when results are so elusive.
Updated nominations for the Dubai Racing Carnival, including the Dubai World Cup itself, are listed in this link. The top 7 finishers in the Breeders' Cup Classic are all shown for the DWC, and Main Sequence is shown for the Dubai Sheema Classic. http://www.dubairacingclub.com/sites/default/files/2015_dwc_noms.pdf
Yes, Afleet Alex began his 3 y/o campaign with a win in a 6f. race at Oaklawn after finishing 2nd in the 8.5f. BCJ at Lone Star Park.
This actual criminal felony charge (along with a conviction, of course) may be what is needed to facilitate this person's removal permanently. As far as I can tell, he has only been dealt with by stewards/racing officials in his past infractions in New Mexico and Texas. The Harris County D.A. is a different entity.
Curlin certainly did run well; the inside gate position would have been problematic in a race as "crowded" as the Derby, even had he been more experienced. That he and Albarado managed to navigate the traffic and still be in the money was accomplishment enough.
Best wishes to Katie in her quest to become a jockey! Being employed by Tom Amoss as an exercise rider is certainly a good start!
