Gold Ship wins the G1 Tenno Sho (Spring) over 2 miles at Kyoto. There isn't much that can stop this horse from winning when he decides that he wants to win - unfortunately that only happens about half the time.
What a star! Beat a nice field too
Still not sure if I want to swap Frosted and Firing Line in these top 4, but I know Mubtaahij is my pick to win
Miracles of Life lands the win in a thrilling finish in today's William Hill Classic at Morphettville. This was her first G1 win in over two years and the first for Stonestreet in Australia
A shame this one hasn't lived up to the promise he displayed in last year's Preakness. I was expecting him to be a real force in the older horse division this year.
Mubtaahij / Firing Line / Frosted / American Pharoah
Both African Story and Prince Bishop have been retired. Being geldings, each of the World Cup winners will remain in light training in Newmarket for the time being.
This facility is owned by Dr. Mark Dedomenico, who owns Blind Luck, Sam's Sister, etc. It looks outstanding!
Duramente shows an impressive turn of foot to win the Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2,000 Guineas) today at Nakayama. Duramente is possibly the epitome of blue blooded, with his dam (Admire Groove - Champion Older Mare), 2nd dam (Air Groove - Horse of the Year, Champion Older Mare), and 3rd dam (Dyna Carle - Champion 2 year old filly, Champion 3 year old filly) all being JRA Champions. It is the first time in Japan that there has been a G1 winner in 4 consecutive generations!
It looks like she either passed several days ago, or had been away from the farm (possibly being treated) based on this photo
