Ulysses Prevails In Thrilling Juddmonte International; Colt Earns Berth In BC Turf

Ulysses showed he is getting better with age as he put his younger rivals in the shade to give Sir Michael Stoute a record-breaking sixth success in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York.

Having finished second in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes last time out, the four-year-old claimed a second Group One of the season when making a successful switch back to a mile and a quarter to add to his victory in last month's Coral-Eclipse.

Good on Marsha and too bad for Lady Aurelia.. the winner had some clout though. Wonder if the track condition was not entirely to LA"s liking?

Just FYI......there will be no walk-up general admission either day, you will have to have a ticket pre-purchased to get on the property.

Management wants to limit/control the crowd at 37,500 each day!
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

So that they can more easily ignore people who complain when they give it back to Santa Anita for 2019-2021?
