The American Pharoah yearling colt, a half to Caravaggio, just sold at the Keeneland sale for $1,000,000. He was handsome, but also very fuzzy. :lol:

is entered in the G2 Al Maktoum Challenge R1 at Meydan, 1/11/2018.

Thunder Snow and Cosmo Charlie are entered as well.

He won a G1 at Meydan in 2017. He'll be one of AP Indy's last sons headed to stud duty when he finally goes to stud.


Bloodhorse has an article about this upcoming G2 race at Meydan

I'm surprised/impressed that he's still running. He'd be worth a mint as a stallion. Unless there are fertility issues we don't know about...

* Unfortunately, Long River's fourth wasn't that impressive. The first three were strung out with multiple lengths between them, and LR was lengths behind them. The only thing I liked about his race was that he was the only of the top group who changed leads in the stretch. I'd love to see him get a group/graded stakes win this year, so this mature son of Indy could find a nice, comfy breeding farm.
* When Thunder Snow won the UAE Derby last year, I remember thinking, 'that boy really needs to learn to switch to his right lead for the Derby.' From what I saw this morning, he still hasn't learned how. :? :P

Long River is a G1SW in the UAE. He hasn't raced in the US since 2014. He has just raced at Meydan during January - March since 2015 and then doesn't resurface until the next year. I would imagine if/when he does go to stud it will be in Saudi Arabia, they have bought alot of A.P. Indy sons.

The 6:40 at Wolverhampton tomorrow, a 2m 1/2f Conditions Stakes on All Weather, has two relations to superstars in it. Firstly, Godolphin's Frontiersman, a Listed Stakes winner and G1 and G2 runner up in 2017. He is out of Ouija Board and half to Australia. If he wins, he could be targeted at the All Weather Championship Marathon at Lingfield on Good Friday, or at the Dubai Gold Cup on World Cup Day.

Also in the race is De Coronado, full to Zenyatta, making his first start for new connections. His only two wins have come over the All Weather at Dundalk, and the family has plenty of stamina. Could be a pretty good race for a Monday... on the AW... in January... in England! :lol:

6:40 in England...would that be 9:40 AM or 10:40 AM Pacific? I hope TVG shows the race.
