Did anyone else catch that ultra impressive Smarty Jones winner Pavel is a half-brother to the venerable Caracortado?

I hope Madam Milan becomes something special. La Ville Rouge is pensioned now but, after giving us a bunch of boys who had to live in the shadow of their late brother, she blessed her owners with three Bernardini daughters. :D

Only two? She had 3yo Moe'ne Davis (sorry if I mangled the spelling), 2yo Madam Milan, and the filly she had just before she was pensioned, who would be a yearling now. Did something happen to the yearling? :(

Madame Milan was a yearling when she was pensioned. She did not have a foal last year. Mo'ne is 4 and she had no foal on 2014.

That is so cool...to see our Kitten's Joy having success in Japan. :D He's a gorgeous colt.
So proud of KJ...even if all those "Kitten" names do drive some people a little crazy. :P :lol:

Agreed. I'm always curious to see how Kitten's Joy is received in countries where turf racing is predominant.

Orfevre's little sister Dernier Or (JPN) - which if my French is correct means along the lines of "Last Gold" since she was Oriental Art's final foal :cry: and is sort of doubly poignant given the loss of Stay Gold that same year - debuts Sunday (which is tonight US)

Last Gold is a very cute name. Hope she is as golden for them on the track as she is in her coat.

She & Orfevre certainly take after their dam with their gorgeous chestnut & flaxen coats; Dream Journey is bay like his sire. 8-)

Richmond Street (Street Cry x Where's Bailey) just won a stretch-long duel to take the 3rd at Kentucky Downs, a 1 5/16 allowance...with a $140,000 purse. The four-year-old colt looked good, and I hope he can find a nice, long turf stakes next.
Not sure how to describe his relationship with Zenyatta - both by Street Cry, while he's out of a half sister to Zen. :?

Oscar Nominated (Kitten's Joy x Devine Actress/Theatrical), the 4yo full brother to Oscar Performance, just won the G3, 1 1/2-mile, $600,000 Kentucky Turf Cup at Kentucky Downs. Really dug in, dug down deep and held on to win by a head over Postulation and Muqtaser.
Devine Actress is a pretty darn good broodmare. 8-)

Quite remarkable. She has a few sisters who were quite accomplished on the racecourse but they've been disappointments as producers.
