Dual G1 winner Covert Love has been sold to Northern Farm in Japan. It has been suggested that there's a good possibility of her first cover being Deep Impact.
Yeah, was gonna say he looks a prime candidate for turf. His dam ran against some seriously tough competition in her day and seemed to prefer soft ground. It'd be neat to see how he does on dirt, too.
The Galileo half-sister to Giant's Causeway has finally broken her maiden on her 3rd try!
Is he going to be a dirt runner or turf runner?
I did not see it, but it wouldn't have surprised me. Frankly, I'm surprised he didn't try this earlier. It's probably for the best for them. Neither of them are my type of horses, so I'm certainly not as keen on the idea, heh.
I thought it was a good gamble on Sir Stoute's part running Dartmouth in this. He finished in the money when I expected him to potentially do much worse. I've mentioned it before, but with his form being as unpredictable as it was on Ascot even though firm pretty much has been said to be his best ground there's just not enough consistency there. As much as I like him, I wasn't very confident in him.
I feel that way, too, but you just never know.
Wings Of Desire didn't have his ground in the Derby and this *was* his ground by all accounts. He was an easy bet and I was sure he'd at least place. Give him another year and if he keeps this up he'll be much more dangerous, I think. As long as he doesn't do an Eagle Top/The Lark... *sigh*
Wings Of Desire looking like he could potentially grow into something great if he doesn't suffer the same dip in form as some others *cough*. He was actually my bet to win or place, but sadly he could just get a length.
Dartmouth... was an either going to win or wasn't going to even place and it looks like he's gone with the latter. He has this inconsistency on Ascot that ppl seem to ignore - he's done great on both firm and soft, but he's also done really poorly on both and only last year. Yeah, he's grown, but it looks like he's not there yet.
I believe that could be the fastest winning time for the G3 Princess Margaret Juddmonte Stakes at Ascot, and it's just barely outside of the course & distance juvenile record of 1:12.46 set by Henrythenavigator. Fair Eva is now unbeaten in 2 starts and looks as strong as ever.
After the race Roger Charlton said he'd have to talk to her owners as to where to send her next, but he mentioned the G1 Moyglare Stud Stakes as a possibility. He's certain she'll get 7f and believes she could also get a mile. And he's not alone as she's currently favorite for next year's 1,000 Guineas!
Wins the G3 Juddmonte Stakes by ~4 lengths!
