He is currently 2 for 2.
Now 3 for 3 :D
He won in impressive fashion over Kowboy Karma after having to fight his way through traffic (he tried to re-angle off the rail then was cut off and had to readjust and then tried to aim for daylight, got narrowed back... and then bravely split through horses and fought off the challenge of Kowboy Karma).
I was rooting for Kowboy Karma, but okay with this one taking a big step forward.

Trainer Brad Cox on Exclamation Point now being 3-for-3: "Obviously we'll have to go into a stakes next. We debated with this race or the Northern Spur at Oaklawn but we decided he might need some more experience."

Thanks for that SC. I really love how much they've taken their time with this boy to bring him along, and I loved how categorical the trainer was when questioned about trying to get him on the Derby trail earlier this winter.
Will be exciting to see where they put him in next.
I think Kowboy Karma would've gotten there closer if he hadn't had to go as wide. I'm sure he'll get the win next time. Certainly improved off his last!

Tanino Frankel improved his record to 7-2-1-2 with today's stylish victory. 8-)
He will need another win in the stakes company to earn his spot in the upcoming Japanese Derby.

Tap Gun, an unraced 3-year-old half-sister to 2017 Horse of the Year Gun Runner, was sent through her first local breeze by trainer Tom Amoss, going a half-mile in 49.40 seconds Wednesday at Keeneland. The gray Tapit filly shows seven works at the GoldMark training center in Ocala, Fla., from mid-February through March 31.

Tap Gun was produced by Quiet Giant, also the dam of Gun Runner (by Candy Ride). She was a $1.4 million purchase by Mandy Pope’s Whisper Hill Farm at the 2016 Keeneland September yearling sale.

Masar ran off with the Craven Stakes by nine lengths. He's by New Approach out of UAE Derby and Oaks victress Khawlah. He will run next in the 2,000 Guineas.

Finishing third, a head behind the runner-up, was Roaring Lion -- a grandson of Cambiocorsa by Kitten's Joy. He may also go for the 2,000 Guineas as well as some longer races such as the Prix du Jockey Club according to trainer Gosden.

Masar was insanely impressive, ran off with the race from the front end and he kept pulling away even as he went into the dip!

Wampus (Malibu Moon x Pepper's Pride) just prevailed in a hard-fought stretch drive, winning by a nose in the 3rd at Santa Anita, a $20,000 MCL for F&M, 3yo+up. Wonder if she'll be changing barns?

No claim...I found myself trying to push her up there...showed some grit like mama.

Wampus finished 1st by a nose, on April 20, 2018, at SANTA ANITA PARK in Race 3.
Off odds: 3.60
Your comments for this horse were: 2015 F Malibu Moon - Peppers Pride, by Desert God; Joel Marr for O/B Joe Allen & Michael C. Stinson

There's a link to the race video at the end of the article.

Dubawi’s Daughter Of Dar Re Mi a New Rising Star At Newbury
Lah Ti Dar was always going to attract keen attention as the latest progeny out of the esteemed Dar Re Mi to hit the track and she was duly sent off the 7-2 joint favourite for this race won four times since 2010 by the John Gosden stable. Settled in fourth early by Frankie Dettori, the bay homebred was coaxed into contention in early straight and had the measure of Arcadian Cat (Kitten’s Joy) with two furlongs remaining. Asked to stretch all the way to the line, she built momentum to power away for an ultimately impressive six-length success. Dar Re Mi, who was a TDN Rising Star herself when successful by seven lengths in a Sandown maiden in April 10 years ago, went on to win three times at the top level in the Yorkshire Oaks, Pretty Polly S. and Dubai Sheema Classic. Also controversially disqualified from first place in the G1 Prix Vermeille, she is a daughter of the 1986 Vermeille heroine Darara whose other progeny included the ill-fated G1 Prince of Wales’s S. and G1 Dubai Sheema Classic hero Rewilding (GB) (Tiger Hill {Ire}) and the Hong Kong champion Diaghilev (Ire) (Sadler’s Wells). Dar Re Mi’s daughter So Mi Dar (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) was built in her image, winning the G3 Musidora S. and finishing third in the G1 Prix de l’Opera, GSW-Eng & G1SP-Fr, $242,742, while she also produced the smart De Treville (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), MGSP-Fr, $112,069, her first foal who sold for 850,000gns at Tattersalls five years ago. Her 2016 and 2017 colts are both also by Dubawi. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $7,789.

The upcoming 5th at Keeneland, a 1 1/16-mile MSW on the dirt for 3yo + up, is full of well-bred horses, like;
Vinyl, by Arch x Thissongsforyou/UBS
Air On Fire, by UBS x Unaltered/Pulpit
Pendant, by Bernardini x My Flag/Easy Goer
Strike the Flag, by Smart Strike x Catch the Flag/ A.P. Indy
Hollywood Strike, by Smart Strike x Hollywood Story/Wild Rush
Pretty sure that the connections of these horses thought they would have broken their maidens a while ago. :oops:
Rooting for Pendant, because Personal Ensign. ;)

TVG just announced that both Hollywood Strike and Pendant are first-time geldings. :shock:
Ouch...with those pedigrees, that couldn't have been an easy decision for the owners.
ETA: You couldn't have more different reactions to the geldings: Hollywood Strike went to the lead and held on to win by a couple of lengths.
Pendant was last.

Not sure why they kept persevering with breeding My Flag to Indy and Bernardini. Plodders, all of them....
