Diamondsandpearls just won the 2nd at Santa Anita, a five-furlong MSW on the dirt. Won easy, by open lengths, with her ears pricked. Looks like she may be worth her hefty $1,700,000 auction price.
Oh, and she's trained by Baffert and was ridden by Mike Smith. :P :lol:
You don't usually think of Congrats when auction prices go past a million, but IIRC, he has had a bunch of nice fillies.

They need to dump Mike. Everyone knows he's crap with fillies.

:lol:
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Pavel is a half-brother to the very talented Caracortado.

BSF is a 97.
Isn't Pavel a 3yo?

Zilfikhar just won a MSW at Los Al with ease, indicating the handsome son of Bodemeister may be worth his $750,000 price tag. He's owned by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, who also has Vale Dori and recent addition, Mubtaahij, in Baffert's barn.

Nero, the PotN son mentioned is out of... you guessed it, a Storm Cat granddaughter.

I was a little surprised they didn't mention Jafar, SPD's usual workout partner. The Medaglia d'Oro colt has looked pretty good too.
