More black type for Nikkis Smartypants as she finishes 3rd (lost a photo for 2nd) in the $100K Apelia Stakes at Woodbine.

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).

From Kevin on the Smarty Jones FB page:

SMARTY MOONHAK returns to the races going in an allowance race (Race 13, 1200m) at Seoul Race Park (Korea) on Sunday! He's drawn post #13 in a 14-horse field.

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. :)
