 Rule changes are coming after the death of the wonderful Anthony Van Dyck---- (this one really got to me)

The article states that horses need more time to acclimate to the difference in tracks from Europe to Australia.   There have been too many breakdowns during the Melbourne Cup-----

Yes, so sad.  Loss of another Roberto-line stallion.  Was very upset when he left the states, along with Tizway.  I still remember his Derby with Jon Court and Early Fires.  Was so hoping he would do well, but with that injury I was just grateful he made it to become a sire.  I noticed two Archarcharch runners in races tomorrow.  We just have to hope that some of the Korean offspring can carry on for him.

AAA was the horse that made me first aware of Jinx Fires.  It was fun following this horse on his Derby bid.  I am saddened also at the loss of another horse from the Roberto line.  He was a beauty.
