Dual G3-winner Goken has been retired and will stand at Haras de la Huderie alongside Sandwaki for 2017. His fee is set at €5,000.
The Last Lion has been retired and will stand at Kildangan Stud. I guess he'll be standing there for 2017? No fee has been announced.
The dual G1-winning Speedy Boarding is planned to visit Dubawi for 2017.
If not for his bad showing at the Dewhurst, Rivet would be the favorite instead of Yucatan. I was pretty glad that happened, actually, because I was convinced Rivet at his best could take this, especially when paired with Atzeni.
Won the G1 Racing Post Trophy, giving Andrea Atzeni his 4th win in this race!
Her year end goal was the Arc, but the main reason she missed it was because of medication. Rouget said her medication would still be in her system by the time the Arc rolled around, so they could not run her (due to drugs rules - if they ran her and the pre-race tests came back positive, she'd be disqualified for having a banned substance). Since that was the big race they were trying to aim her at, they decided to rest her and then bring her back next year.
Yes, she is done for the year.
In a fairly strong-looking renewal of the Prix Isonomy Al Wukair wins by 1¾ lengths to the half-sister of the great Goldikova, Gold Luck, with the Sea The Stars half-sister to graded stakes-placed Listed winner Lake Palace, Hebah, a further ¾ length back in 3rd!
Last year's winner of the Prix Isonomy was the undefeated La Cressonnière, and it's beginning to look like it's becoming a quality race for late developing 2yos.
In his preparations for going to Japan to run in the G1 Tenno Sho (Autumn), Tryster has unfortunately suffered a leg injury that is serious enough that it will require surgery. His trainer, Charlie Appleby, says it'll depend on how he recovers as to whether we'll see him come back to racing.
Hopefully he can recover well and nothing else happens. Get well soon, Tryster!
Has been retired and will stand at Bridge House Stud. His fee has yet to be announced.
