An old but interesting story on Darley's Sharmadal - sire of Pinatubo.  Sharmadal is also the sire of Blue Point who retires this year to stand alongside his sire.

After a shaky start, Shamardal looks for a rosy future


 

It is an inspiring story, told so often that by now it frays at the edges. As an excitable 2-year-old, Smarty Jones bashes his head into a metal starting gate so severely he fractures his skull and is nearly killed, yet he recovers to become a racing superstar.

A year later, along comes another 3-year-old sensation with a remarkable story, one that also could have ended tragically.

I am so happy!! I know if she tells them I am done when they start up again next year they will listen to her. But I would love to see her get her 3rd Arc!

What a throw down between Stradivarius and Kew Gardens at Ascot just now.  Kew Gardens wins it.

Just watched the race now, what a finish! But do you think Frankie waited too long, pace too slow, or winner just faster? It seemed he had to really ride the last half of race?
