A colt with a future and had been working nicely coming into the race. It was sad to lose Lady Liberty earlier in the year.

Snap Decision was 2nd in the 7th at Belmont, but I think he may have been best. He got badly blocked through much of the stretch, but came running when he finally got room.

Wondering if ASTICOU TRAIL is ok. 3yo filly

She usually does pretty well and was one of the favorites in this race, yet finished last.

Chart said the she " set the pace for three quarters then stopped."

on Sunday morning, Carrumba put in her best piece of work this year in preparation for the Fleur de Lis handicap at Churchill Downs. Fingers crossed that she will continue to improve off her distant 2nd in a Gr.3 at Pimlico.

Good win for Bombs Away earlier today, on his turf debut.

As always, looking forward to Saratoga. A couple of nice 2yo fillies to look out for; Closing Statement and Barrier Island. Personal Time has also been working quite well.

Also excited to see how Browse fares given the lack of running room on her turf debut and whether Parade can follow up after her encouraging run on the dirt.

Looking forward to the 2 year olds. Personal Time a full to Orb and Emancipation, who looks like a runner, can't wait.

I would love to see one of those War Front 5 year olds win a stake race..

Recollection was retired earlier in the year and was covered by Medaglia d' Oro.

Carrumba is due to retire at the end of this year. Browse will also be retained at the end of her career, although when that is will largely depend on how she fares on the turf.

Nothing has been decided on the remaining four year olds; Dancing All Night (runs on monday), Vagabond and Blenheim Palace who may prove difficult to spot for a second win.

Of the remaining 3 year olds; Conspiring (runs on monday) reverts to the dirt and it will be fun to see what Parade can do when she runs again over the summer.

Emancipation is nominated to the Curlin stakes, although Shug has options to keep the colt to an allowance.c

The current foal crop is a really nice group, so hopefully plenty to look forward too in the coming years.

Seems to be a little seconditis in the Shug barn. Hopefully that leads to wins in the second half of the Saratoga meet and good fall. Revved Up looked great and Browse ran her eyeballs out second time on the turf.

Nice win for Parade Yesterday. She got a good set up and won like a horse with a future. Hopefully that is a sign that the barn is going to turn some of those seconds and thirds earlier in the meet into wins.

Looks like Pendant My Flag's 2014 colt by Bernardini is ready to make his first start
Wednesday in a MSW at Belmont. PP 5 in a field of five, all of whom have starts behind them.

As I'm sure you are aware, Pendant is My Flag 's last foal.

Parade is also due to run on the same card and should be difficult to beat. Fingers crossed.

Pendant scratched out of the 1st, but Parade won very nicely in the 5th, a 1 1/16-mile Alw. on the dirt. She stayed along the rail, found just enough space and went through to win by open lengths.

The filly has been improving all summer and won nicely today. Dylan rides her well and she looks to have a future.

Fly So High is due to debut soon and has been working nicely.

If not something official, is there a site from their trainer or even a fan site?
No official site.

Not too sure how many people read this thread anymore but a couple of points to make:

Carrumba and Blenheim Palace returned to Claiborne some time ago. Parade, Vagabond and Browse remain in training and each have a couple of wins so far. Hopefully, the fillies can add some blacktype as all 3 are due to be added to the broodmare band, all being well.

Fly So High just ran an encouraging 3rd on her debut and makes up a pretty good group of 2yo fillies. Barrier Island was an unlucky 2nd on her debut a while back, running green down the lane and was just caught near the wire. Closing Statement also ran 2nd on her turf debut earlier this pm. Add Tactical Affair and the exciting Cover Model to the list, hopefully there is plenty to look forward too.

I watched Fly So High's race today and she really did look good coming down the stretch. Hopefully, good things ahead for her and the other young fillies.

Thanks for the update, Cladan. I think TBC in general has lost a lot of posters, but I make an effort to keep up with this thread. I love that you share news about the stable, especially about the mares. I'm looking forward to hearing about the stable's breeding plans.

I thought Fly So High ran pretty well but the gallop out was impressive.

So sorry to hear this. My condolences to everyone at the farm and all who loved her. She was so special! Paulick re-published my favorite photo of her (below).

Browse (Medaglia d'Oro - Daydreaming by A.P. Indy) looked good winning an Allowance by 1 1/2 at Keeneland today. After having trouble in her previous race, she got a good ride by Jose Ortiz.

Hi Cladan:

Do you know if ASTICOU TRAIL(3yo filly Hard Spun x Carriage Trail) is retired?

She stopped racing in June of 2017 and no published works since then.
