Watch the race over.....Champions Dream was hit hard at break by Blazing, and the same horse moved out on him in the stretch, completely taking away his momentum. Franco did a great job of slowing him down at that point, finishing without pushing him. The liner notes may not display the trouble, but I would look for him to come back at a price in a month or so.
A MTR won a race at Longchamp today, I'll look for it tomorrow,
darn. Did Rutherford get in ?
that track was crazy, I think it helped the 4 on the list to learn something new, Oct 1
I like all 4 and 7 is on the highest rung today. he looked good.
Rutherford didn't run poorly. He ran 4th. I would like to know the name of the one at Longchamp. Is he/she a juvenile? Shug won the Miss Grillo with an MTR filly, Pleasant Passage, out of a War Front mare.
I also wonder what happened to Morethanreadyeddie. He won his debut for Pletcher, and hasn't worked in forever!
It wasn't Longchamp, I just looked. Must of been Pleasant Passage.

MTR has several two year olds entered this weekend in races that could earn them a BC start. I hope a couple at least, get a chance to extend their sire’s lead in BC wins! Impetuous Molly, Redifined, and Our Dream Rye’d, will try to join Miss Grillo winner, Pleasant Passage! Come on guys!
