Well, his next race is likely going to be at least 3 months and a dozen works from now so any momentum he gets from this will disappear.
After 2 years and to have his head in it this time I'm hoping we see him again at Del Mar. Has anyone ever said why he had 2 years off?
Because Shirreffs.

It wasn't easy but she broke her maiden in her third try.

Kitten Smitten finished 1st by a nose, on July 24, 2017, at PRESQUE ISLE DOWNS in Race 2.

It was technically her 4th start. The first time she ran, there was a major incident and the race was declared no contest. I hope she stays sound and didn't inherit her mother's feet, unlike Divining Rod (who I wish would try turf).

Oh yeah, I forgot about that race at Monmouth.

It would be nice to see Divining Rod try turf this year. The boy has talent, just has to stay healthy enough to get that Grade 1 win. Guess we'll know soon.

Orb's full brother, Emancipation, was 4th in that race.

Yet another Malibu Moon, Singing Bullet (o/o Life at Ten), is in the G2 Amsterdam at Saratoga on Saturday,

Mr. Hot Stuff who at this point is probably a bit too well-known in his own right to be in the siblings and offspring thread, is running in the G1 AP Smithwick Steeplechase Handicap tomorrow. He's the 156lb highweight and morning-line favorite. Still gorgeous as ever.

Gorgeous as ever is right. Sometimes I'm still sad that they gelded him.

With his more accomplished brother, Colonel John, available, I could see why he didn't get to stay intact. And even with those accomplishments (and some pretty nice offspring), CJ still got sold overseas. To Turkey, IIRC. :(

CJ, Tiz Wonderful, and Tizway are all in Korea now. I'm hopeful that the sire line will thrive there and be preserved for at least a few more generations.

Why does Korea prize Tiznow's line and we don't? :(
Do we still have any of his better sons standing here, besides Gemologist?

Mr. Hot Stuff was scratched. Maybe the softer ground (it was raining) wasn't best for him?

Irap is building a decent racing resume. Being a half to Speightstown doesn't hurt. It will be interesting to see if he stays in the U.S. when he does go to stud.

Her 2YO 1/2 sister, Jehozacat (by Tapit, so full to Divining Rod), is entered for Sunday at Laurel. My reaction to that name hasn't stopped being :roll: :P

Thanks. This one wasn't in my VS.
