Olivier Peslier to ride Maureen on Sunday - I love the butterfly pin he always wears on his silks. You can see it in this picture. He is an excellent, sympathetic jockey so she is in good hands:

Speaking at Chantilly on Monday, Peslier said: "She's got a lot of pace and she enjoys her racing. If the favourites aren't quite at their best she's a filly who can cause a surprise. The fifth or sixth favourites in such a race always have a chance of winning."

Well, she came in a creditable 6th in the One Thousand Guineas, won by her stablemate Sky Lantern. If you want to see the race, you should be able to watch the video on the righthand side of this article:

And for the real star of the season, have a look at Dawn Approach's win in the Two Thousand Guineas which is also in that corner. He is really something and you can't miss him with his distinctive blaze and his bright chestnut coat.

Thanks, Liz!

All kinds of problems with my computer tonight - will try to bring this up at work tomorrow.   Thanks so much for keeping me up-to-date on her!

Following her sixth place in the English 1000 Guineas at Newmarket last month, Maureen came 6th in the Irish version at the Curragh today. So she is consistent! I thought she was a bit unlucky as she didn't get a good run and seemed the meat in the sandwich just when she was trying to find a gap to launch her run. She ran on well to be 6th. She may not have won even with a clear path but I'm sure she would have been a lot closer. The winner is a lovely filly who came a close second to Sky Lantern in the Newmarket Classic. There is a replay of the race (at least most of it) in this link. Maureen is a bit difficult to spot as she is deep in the pack but you can see her being steered around some of the others to make her run late on. Her jockey is in green and white (white sleeves):

Thanks for all the info, Liz!   Unfortunately tho, her race must not be up anymore.   The link took me to a bunch of other stuff on Racing Post.    I thank you for the effort, tho!

Frankel's little sis won her first time out, his brother won first time out this year...

Joyeuse, the juvenile half sister to undefeated, multiple European champion Frankel, won her first time out May 28 as the favorite in a six-furlong maiden race at Lingfield Park.

I wonder what is going on, I know that Prince Abdullah is not young and maybe he just sees this as the right time to sell off some stock. I will be interested to see if Frankel gets included in the sale. I truly hope not!!

Juddmonte Announces Select Stock Dispersal

Khalid Abdullah plans to disperse part of his global Juddmonte equine operation, the organization's chief executive confirmed to The Blood-Horse.

Between farms at Henley and Tetbury in Great Britain, as well as operations in Ireland and Kentucky, the Saudi prince owns more than 900 horses including undefeated Frankel, who is now in his first season standing at Banstead Manor Stud near Newmarket and has been valued at pound;100 million.

This is a downsizing and not a pull out.  I think Frankel stays right where he is.
