Question. What year did Hard Spun ship to Japan for the northern hemisphere breeding season? I am trying to figure out when we will see a gap in American runners for him. I am thinking it was 2014, but am not sure. If that is correct, we won't see any 2yo runners for him this year.

ROCKETRY is entered in race #8, an allowance, at Saratoga this Friday. 1-3/8 miles on the turf. Same distance that he won that maiden race so smartly. Last race he got into some trouble in the stretch. Hoping for trouble free run this time. He has some talent I think. What is with Hard Spun getting so many long winded runners when some said he couldn't get 1 1/4 miles. I never agreed with that assessment. He finished 2nd in the KD and BCC in front of a lot of horses who did win at that distance. I think he would have, too, if he had not retired when he did. I am looking forward to this race as much as seeing TIMELINE in the Haskell.

I remember what TVG's Rich Perloff said years ago when Hard Spun first retired to stud. He was excited about the colt's future at stud and, as a son of Danzig, thought he would likely get runners on dirt and grass. He was prophetic, IMHO, as we have seen Hard Spun have success at stud all over the world.

Rocketry had an awesome win in race #8 at Saratoga this afternoon. 1 3/8 miles on the turf. His record is now 6-2-2-1. Another long-winded son for Hard Spun. And no DQ this time! Should also mention that he was running against older horses.
