Thanks, yes I saw that and a good mover.

Another one ran at Woodbine on turf that made me eyes bulge.

I forgot her name, I'll have to look it up. Both are on the list.

That didn't take long  Cardio Princess (JPN) check that pedigree

Casse trained, Gary Barber bought out of Japan.

News feed says he won at Saratoga, that's wrong.

On Saturday, one of those MTR fillies I was raving about(Plus Chic), will run in the Arlington-Washington Lassie Stakes. She is moving from the grass to the AW, and stretching out from 5 to 7f. Hopefully she can win this and move on to the BC!

I love to keep up with the fillies. They don't get nearly enough press. Averly Jane has a pretty impressive resume already, and not many people know of her. The Midshipman filly, out of a Richter Scale mare, is bred for speed, and she has certainly showed it so far for Wesley Ward. She is a multiple stakes winner already.

Another who is more obscure as she debuted at Colonial Downs, is Hidden Connection, by Connect, out of an Awesome Again mare. She is also very fast, but is more likely to stretch out successfully, in my opinion. She is trained by Brett Calhoun.

I have both Fillies on the list, Remember Wes Ward doesn't have many 2 yr olds

that will stretch out to be gr 1 types, If he gets one and hypes it don't discount it,

He is a very good Horseman and knows what he has.

LOve and Money racing at SAR today in  riskaverse stakes. 
I think there are 2 MTRs in that race, didn't have time to look at whole field

I think just Love and Money. She is a speedball. If she can learn to ration out her speed a little better, she could be dangerous. She is lightly raced, so there is room for improvement.

RAESFAN said...

While the winner ran a great race, there were quite a few horses in the race that didn't get to do their best running.

Well Astronaut has secured a gate in the BC Turf G1 so I guess I'll be interested to see if anyone else from that race gets in that might do better running than they did in that race.  But as usual, expecting some Euro entries in that one and who knows who will show up.

The race at Saratoga today was won by #8 Keepcalmcarryon the only one entered

we had on our list. 2nd place finisher Commander Compton I added to our

list ,he had a troubled trip including bumping out of the gate, Rattle N Roll and the other

one I mention Dowagiac Chief were taken out when Rattle N Roll bolted and finished last and next to last.

And certainly I meant to take nothing from the winner that ran huge. I was watching specifically for Say the Word, who never got to run, while he appeared to be loaded.
