I thought it was pretty good. He broke well, ran with the pace setters, put those away and then held off Instilled Regard, a $1,050,000 Arch colt. That one is trained by Hollendorfer, ridden by Mike Smith and I think he was wearing Fox Hill Farm silks. Maybe IR will be a future star for Mr. Porter.

A surprisingly regal pedigree showed up at Suffolk today... Ventura Highway (Street Cry x Music Note) didn't turn any heads in the paddock, but he ran a pretty good third in a starter optional claiming.

I'm looking forward to seeing how St. Patrick's Day runs when he doesn't have the inside draw. He was used a lot early and was then pressed from outside. Not the best trip for a youngster.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Checking in 11th in that race was Taniko (1/2 to Tepin, et. al.).

IMHO, Victor's ride on Coz didn't do the horse any favors. Coz wanted to run (always good to see), but he was blocked behind horses for much of the stretch. I think that big boy needs to stay in the clear so he can sustain his run.

The field was pretty bunched so I'll give Victor a pass. He'd have had to put him 8-wide to keep him clear. It's too bad that Del Mar doesn't card 11f MSW races or Santa Anita doesn't card a like race at 10f. He seems like a galloper that might do some good at those distances.

Never going to happen, but it would be interesting to see how any of Zenyatta's progeny would do in England or Ireland, where longer distance maiden races aren't so difficult to come by. Imagine one of her foals going to Mark Johnston - we'd be seeing them race 2-3 times a month!

That's exactly how I saw it...then Espinoza tried to skate the rail, and that didn't work.

Same here.

Azeri has yet to produce any stakes winner in Japan.
Hopefully Shirvanshah will be the one, while his full brother 4yo Leukerbad will try again in a G3 at Niigata next week.
Deep Impact must be a very consistent sire and his offspring sell extremely well at the sale.
But, needless to say, he is not always the best match for the US import mares.
I personally hope that Katsumi Yoshida (Northern Farm) will send Azeri & some other top mares to such younger stallions as Orfevre, Maurice and Duramente, even if these three Shadai-based stallions are not yet proven. (I especially look forward to Duramente (by King Kamehameha))
Azeri is already 19 years old.
Leukerbad was 8th of a field of 17 in the G3 Niigata Kinen 2000m turf on Sep 3rd 2017.
(only 0.2 seocnd to the winner, though)

That's a lot of money for an Arch colt. I certainly would love to see him go on to bigger things, because I just love the Kris S line.

Edited to add: I also just noticed his second dam is Heavenly Prize. What a nicely bred colt.

So Moonshine Memories won the Del Mar Debutante (gr. I) yesterday. She's by Malibu Moon out of Unenchanted Evening, a half-sister to Horse of the Year Favorite Trick.

It's not Fox Hill Farm silks but same colors and similar sleeves. Instilled Regard is owned by OXO Equine LLC.
Their silks: Red, "OXO" in white circle emblem, red bars on white sleeves, red cap

Thanks for the correction. Right now any red and white silks are reminding me of Songbird, I guess. ;)

I liked it too all things considering. I was pleased with the effort even if I was not blown away I liked what I saw.
Also Littleprincessemma is a good broodie... all of her offspring of racing age are winners.
A filly named Ruffian...

Here's a pedigree to die for: Royal Line, by Dubawi out of Melikkah, a half-sister to Galileo and Sea the Stars, won his debut easily at Windsor today. He races in the Darley colors in the name of Sheikh Mohammed and Princess Haya's nine-year=old daughter.
