Thought I'd start the new thread (do not even want to think about all that was lost) with something fun.

Wonderful is a VEN-bred 3yo daughter of Smarty out of an Indygo Shiner mare. She broke her maiden by ~10 lengths on debut at La Rinconada in Venezuela back on Sept. 1 in her debut. Our good friend Adieu found the video. And as Adieu pointed out this video has gotten a lot of views, considering. So there must be a bit of buzz about her down there.

Ugh. Res Judicata gets another shot at a GS race -- the Gallant Bob at Parx -- and draws the inside post in a field of 14.

Concealed Identity is entered in the Laurel Turf Cup Stakes on Saturday. 1 1/2 miles on turf.

Indian Jones is the first AE for that race -- and given his performance in the Greenwood -- 2nd by a nose -- he could be a threat if he gets in.

I just watched the replay. That was a gutsy performance by Crackerjack Jones. I also thought the jockey did a nice job on him.

Francois just won "smartly" at Arlington. 6 or 7 lengths, I'd say.
