Cupid set for Ashford after Breeders' Cup
Cupid, a Grade 1 winner at Santa Anita this year, will retire to Ashford Stud after the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile at Del Mar next week.

Purchased by MV Magnier for $900,000 as a yearling at the Keeneland September Sale, the son of Tapit won four times as a three-year-old for Bob Baffert – notably in the Rebel Stakes, Indiana Derby and West Virginia Derby.

Resuming this year at four, he registered a first top-level success in the Gold Cup at Santa Anita and was last seen finishing fourth in the Awesome Again Stakes.

BREAKING NEWS: Keen Ice has minor injury, to miss BC Classic, retired (FREE) http://bit.ly/2gMdxxG

Jay Privman‏ @DRFPrivman
RLT, Keen Ice wrenched an ankle, Classic was scheduled to be final start, so he's off to stud. Will stand at Calumet.

Jay Privman‏ @DRFPrivman
Keen Ice was originally owned by @DonegalRacing. Calumet bought in earlier this year. so Donegal and Calumet were his owners in 2017

Jay Privman‏ @DRFPrivman
Said @DonegalRacing president Jerry Crawford: "It is time for Ice to go make babies. And Donegal Racing will be first in line to buy them!"

Makes sense. He might not be able to beat Baffert's A-Team, but he can sure score some graded stakes wins elsewhere. :D


CommaToTheTop !!
Clark Handicap !!!!
Pegasus????????????????

You spending Pegram's money? That would take a lot of Big Macs.


“On thing about Hopper, he’s a good horse,” Baffert told Golden. “He’s got a lot of class behind him and he’s doing really well. He’s a barn favorite. He’s been around forever. Old Hopper, it seems like he’s been here for 10 years, but he’s come back really well. I’m thinking maybe the Clark at Churchill Downs (Nov. 24) and then maybe another run at Dubai.”
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Was pretty pleased to see Destin take the Marathon. And as a bonus, he'll return next year as a five-year-old.
