Mott has a Juddmonte British ex-pat making her US debut in the Hillsborough, Swiss Range (GB). She has some class, I'm excited to see how she does.

I thought the ride Ortiz gave Terra Promessa yesterday in the Azeri was horrid. I absolutely do not normally take this stance, but it was almost like he was instructed to lose prior to the race. If there was no fix then at minimum he gave her a terrible ride. I didn't bet the race, had no $ to lose (or win), but that was just repulsive. Only my opinion...

Thought the same thing peep. They tried to rate her and she hated all of it behind horses. If I had money on that I'd be livid.

Mike Watchmaker's summary:

When his career is over many years from now, Irad Ortiz Jr. will have a highlight reel 50 miles long. But his ride on Terra Promessa in Oaklawn’s Azeri will not be on it.

ARCADIA, Calif. – Champagne Room, the champion 2-year-old filly of 2016, will resume training this summer after a 90-day break to recover from recent surgery to remove a bone chip from an ankle.

Trainer Peter Eurton said on Wednesday that Champagne Room’s owners have opted to leave the filly in training after considering retiring and breeding her.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

September Stars (Sea the Stars) just won the 7th at Santa Anita, a 1 1/8-mile AOC on the turf, in very impressive fashion. She made a terrific charge up the fence to overtake the leaders under a fine ride by the Bionic Jockey, Gary Stevens.
One to watch, IMHO. :D

Dam is also a half-sister to multiple grade I winner Angara.

If I heard correctly, the TVG crew said this was her first race in six months, last raced in Britain? With that nice pedigree and obvious talent, I wonder how she ended up here in the States? Maybe she bled a bit and was sent to the Land of Lasix? :P

She won once or twice maybe in Britain on all weather but wasn't anything spectacular, I followed her mildly for a bit because, of her sire.

Valadorna (2nd in BC Juvy Fillies) is out of consideration for the Kentucky Oaks with an injury
