Paulick has an article on Fly So High:

Kudos to Jose Ortiz for knowing something was 'off' with his filly. His quick pull-up may have prevented worse injury.

Breaking the Rules made a pleasing debut, particularly given that the colt had little running room. Originally due to debut at Saratoga as a 2yo before a setback, the colt is the 2nd foal and 2nd winner for Protesting. Breaking the Rules is the first of 2 really nice 3yo's from War Front.

He looked like a real professional out there, really took off when he got through on the rail. Hard to believe he was making his first start. Shug had him well prepared!

I absolutely love Sabbatical's War Front colt, Tour Of Duty. Every now and then I check the video, he seems like he has a lot of personality. But I thought it was strange that one of the last photos they included on Foal Patrol clearly isn't them.

So that's where all the boys went. :lol:
(When looking at the listings of new foals, it seemed like there were a lot more fillies than colts this year. ;) )

They're all fine. Always good to dream of what they can be in a few years...

9 of the 13 yearlings are fillies and are a particularly nice group. They have yet to be named officially. Particular favorites are the Abaco, Matlacha Pass and the Salute fillies. Time will tell.

Fire Away just won the off-the-turf G3 Dixie at Pimlico. Only four horses ran, but Fire Away did well to come up the rail and pass the leaders in the stretch.

Some interesting Phipps horses in the upcoming Fasig Tipton HORA sale. Fire Away, Revved Up and Snap Decision among them. Seems like there would be a win or 2 at Saratoga between those 3.

3 yearlings are due to be sold at the September sales. A named colt out of Daydreaming and a couple of fillies from Trophy Wife and Streaker. The remaining yearlings are a nice group, particularly the fillies. We shall see if a couple of fillies are bought at the sales next month and added to the group.

Browse ran very well today and can hopefully add more blacktype as the season progresses. Barrier Island is getting close for her reappearance and Dancing All Night is doing well since her close seasonal debut at the Spa.

Also looking forward to Cover Model making her debut.
