Uh. According to EQB, 2yo Smarty's Echo worked 4F in :45.80 this morning at ARL. Not at all sure that's a good thing.

Ran 4th, but GHF seems satisfied. Craig Bernick tweeted that they will look for longer races, and try to avoid Indy Point, who, I think, set a stakes record. ;-)

Update on some of Smarty's daughters -- i.e., the Smarty as Broodmare Sire subthread! Some of this info is from the ever-amazing Heather!

Cash Finance -- full sis to Keefer, Centralinteligence et al, and winner in Italy -- apparently has returned to the US, since she's hip #310 in the KEENov Breeding Stock sale. I am relieved, since racing in Italy is in free fall.

Smarty Kota, in foal to First Defence, is also in the KEENov sale. She had a filly by First Samurai in 2012, who sold for $25K at KEESept, and a filly by Midshipman in 2013.

Flash Mash appears to have been retired from racing, since she's now at a farm -- Hara du Mont-dit-Mont -- in France.

And Antigone Jones -- "Tiggy" to those of us who loved her ;-) -- has surfaced in Australia. She had a foal by Flying Spur (Danehill) in 2012. Don't know yet who she was bred to this year, but it should be popping soon. She also had a Mineshaft colt in 2011, before being exported. His name is Smart Miner, and he started working at Remington in September

Thanks for that link, Flanders. Why would someone put a saddle on a pregnant broodmare for a photo?

I don't know. I found it disturbing. That is why I posted the link, I wanted to see what others thought. I thought maybe they used an old photo of her with a saddle on but she looks pregnant.

He also has 4 daughters in the Saratoga Fasig Tipton sale next Monday. Fundsalo Jones (i/f to Noonmark, Hemissesu (i/f to Bluegrass Cat), Holy Joanne (i/f to Desert Party) and Clever Spirit (Racing/Broodmare Prospect).

Sad news to report. The gorgeous Pax (2006; o/o Radiant Glow by War Chant) died on April 13 as a result of a training incident (presumably breakdown) at Finger Lakes. Pax made 25 starts, with a record of 2-3-6, >$80K in earnings.

R.I.P., good boy.

2yo Smarty's Echo ran a good second in the Dixiana Breeders' Futurity at KEE and is now G1-placed. He grabbed the lead coming off the turn, but just couldn't hold it. Got leg-weary, I think, and was running on heart and guts at the end.

Wow, the Syrian Electronic Army message that took over the site was a little scary.

Maybe we need to talk about Arabian horses -- they run all the time at DelPark.

Run Smart One entered 10/11 in an $8,000 claimer at Calder -- a mile and 70 yards.

He actually won at $5,000 and placed third recently at $6,250

Now he has been put in again over his head. I don't get it.

Well, he worked a bullet on 10/5. More seriously, because he won fairly recently he may not fit the conditions of, or get a weight break for, some of the bottom-level races. That's a guess. I haven't looked at the conditions book. Could also be his trainer thought this particular race wouldn't be stacked with better talent.

I do not see Run Smart One being in the money at $8,000 level and one mile and 70 yards.

He has an outside post and anything over a mile is too much for him.

I think the smart thing about Run Smart One is that he seems to know his limits and doesn't knock himself out when he is beaten.

He might be smarter than his connections. :)
