Sail Ahoy (Bernardini - Matlacha Pass by Seeking the Gold) was scratched out of an AOC $80k at a Mile on the Turf today (MTO?) and entered in an Allowance (Race 4) at 7f on the Turf at Belmont on Saturday. This would be his first start since his 4th in the Remsen last November.

Seems like a pretty slow few weeks for the Phipps horses. I thought Revved Up ran sneaky good in his stakes debut and should be better going longer. I see Hereditary is entered to make his turf debut on Friday.

Is there a Phipps racing website which lists their horse roster for active runners and comments and such.

If not something official, is there a site from their trainer or even a fan site?

Might not fit the purpose of this thread, but I found this fun article about 7 year old Grand Manan (Giant's Causeway - Manoa by Seeking the Gold) who is finding his best stride in jumps racing.

International Gold Cup: Grand in the Gold Cup
... Bred by Stuart Janney III and Phipps Stable, Grand Manan earned his fifth win over timber. A flop on the flat (he was beaten in a $8,000 maiden claimer in his final start for Tim Salzman in 2012) and a flop in the hunt field (Meister was the last-chance saloon), the bay gelding didn’t make a sanctioned start from Dec. 5, 2012 at Laurel Park until winning the Miles Valentine novice timber at Fair Hill in May 2015.

And now I think the first 2 year old winner for the Phipps Stable in 2016. Good looking second time starter.

Phipps Stable Marches On
Over the decades, the Phipps Stable has campaigned a legion of homebred turf luminaries, but the historic name appeared in an unusual place two months ago as the buyer of a pair of yearlings at the Keeneland September sale. The stable returns to a somewhat more regular role when it offers 11 mares, including GI Breeders’ Cup Distaff winner Pleasant Home (Seeking the Gold), through the Claiborne Farm consignment at the upcoming Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale.

Hi Cladan, Would you be able to share who will be joining the broodmare band in 2017?
