I am also going with a mare, but with the Uruguayan Generosidade. 8-)

Shirreffs is conservative with campaigns as the norm, but is running Blingo back on a week's rest after a 3rd in the Tokyo City last Sunday. That's interesting in itself.

I did notice that. It's especially noteworthy because Blingo is a seven-year-old with what, 17 starts?

What? Not a word about this race? Did everyone take a bath and have their high school reunion held in their bathroom at exactly the same time?

I caught the race, but I've been Real World busy since the card ended. Sorry. :P
Quick Casablanca may have been the most impressive winner on the card, when you consider what he did after running over a mile-and-a-half. When Tyler Baze gave him his head going into the last turn, he passed the field in one big swoop. Powered away like, as they say, 'he just jumped in at the quarter pole.' :lol:
Congrats to Tyler and Ron McAnally, who clearly has not forgotten how to train a turf stayer. :D

Oh, I'm not yelling. I just thought it funny that everyone was planning on unloading their wallets on the mare that was 2nd, Generosidade (Uru), and no one said a thing about the race. I caught a replay and the winner impressed me, too.

At 15 furlongs? That is a record that is likely to stand for a long, long time. :lol:

McAnally is one of the great trainers for distance. He also gets a lot of stock from South America.....Barry Irwin likes these too.

Every year I wish that he would enter a horse in the derby but I know his thing is turf.

He grew up in an orphanage. He has given many horses a chance that everyone else thought was a hopeless case. Reminds me of Seabiscuit's trainer.

I missed the darn race! Not at all surprised though, I would have just bet whatever horse had his name on it.

I was really happy for him. He looked tickled to be in the winner's circle. Good on him! John is smiling somewhere. Or sneering down!
