Well I guess we know why Baffert decided not to ship Cupid east for the Woodward. He said the horse was sick; hopefully the horse really doesn't mind the track and just needed the race.

Oh what a shame. He had been doing so well. Sure glad it's not life threatening though. Happy Retirement, Danzing Candy!

Canadian International On The Table For Idaho After Sword Dancer Disappointment
The Coolmore partners' 4-year-old Idaho, winner of the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes and recent third in the Group 1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth, journeyed to the United States last weekend to contest the Grade 1 Sword Dancer at Saratoga. The Galileo colt left the starting gates as the favorite for the 1 1/2-mile contest, but weakened late to finish sixth under Ryan Moore.

Despite the disappointment, trainer Aidan O'Brien is considering sending Idaho to Woodbine's G1 Pattison Canadian International on Oct. 15, reports theirishfield.ie. Idaho competed in the race last season, finishing fifth and beaten just 2 1/2 lengths overall.

“He's probably going to be best in a good race with plenty of pace on and a good galloping track,” O'Brien said. “It's possible he could go back to Woodbine, but not definite as he went to Woodbine last year and they didn't go much of a pace in front of him. It was a very steady pace.”

He may be the son of a teaser, but just look at him go
Rarely is a race run at Deauville on the last weekend in August ever expected to have a bearing on the Melbourne Cup, but we may have witnessed an exception on Sunday. And, if Tiberian, the winner of the G2 Grand Prix de Deauville, does happen to pick up the Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday in November, scarcely a more romantic tale of the Turf will have been written.

Tiberian, you see, is the son of little-known Tiberius Caesar, whose principal occupation had long been as a teaser for his more popular stablemates on the stallion roster at French establishment Haras Du Logis, home to many Darley sires over the years.

In an attempt to maintain his libido, Tiberius Caesar, once a purchase from an £8,000 claimer, was permitted to serve the Marju mare Tomasina. The result was Tiberian, who has now won six of his 17 starts and is set to go into quarantine at Newmarket next month, prior to a trip to Melbourne.

For part-owner Julian Ince, manager of Haras Du Logis, it has been almost like a dream. “He is running well, and we feel he will like the conditions in Melbourne later in the year,” Ince said.

Welcome updates on Shaman Ghost:
We've had a couple inquiries about Shaman Ghost since his surgery. He is doing great in fact he is already back in his stall at Belmont.
Shaman will return to training as soon as appropriate.
