He's got a knee chip. Done for the year.

Very impressive win by the MdO colt, Montauk, in the 6th at Belmont, a 7-furlong MSW on the dirt. As Larry said, won "from here to the end of Long Island." :D

That looked bad, from the brief camera angle like his left front.

Sorry to share Ten City won't survive this. I'm sick for the horse, my clients and staff.

Such a shame. Watched that and was just praying for the jock to get him pulled up. Seemed to take forever.

I know there's no scientific correlation.....but noted he's by a sire with 3 starts who was injured and retired on October of his 2 year old year.

It's possible that we'll see two MdO colts (Bolt d'Oro & Montauk) battling it out in the BC Juvenile. 8-)

Good to see how well MDO is doing at stud. Love that boy.

Looks like here will be a nice assemblage of talented 2 year olds - Free Drop Billy sired by hunk horse Union Rags and , Firenze Fire definitely on the improve.

Beautiful Shot Closes Late to Take Speakeasy Stakes

Only two races into his career, Calumet Farm's Beautiful Shot is making a habit of taking down highly regarded and expensive Bob Baffert- trained favorites.
In his first start Aug. 27 at Del Mar, the Trappe Shot colt trained by Keith Desormeaux rallied on the rail to nose out 1-2 favorite Nero, a $950,000 yearling purchase.

On Oct. 15 in the $70,000 Speakeasy Stakes at Santa Anita Park,  it was 1-5 Mourinho, a $625,000 2-year-old purchase, who had the lead late with Beautiful Shot looming.

Interesting that Mike Smith was listed to ride Mourinho but Martin Garcia ended up with the mount. He was also on Nero mentioned above.

Don't read too much into it, Mike missed his flight out of Kentucky and was off all mounts for the day.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Looks like Michael Iavarone, formerly IEAH, is back in business, and could have a good one here.

Animal Kingdom Filly Streaks to Rising Stardom at Woodbine
GRACE AND DIGNITY (f, 2, Animal Kingdom–Precision Farming, by Smart Strike), an overwhelming 2-5 favorite to go two-for-two to kick off her career, made those short odds look like a bargain as she streaked home a dominant and promising winner worthy of the ‘TDN Rising Star’ distinction. Airing by 5 1/2 lengths and earning a solid 82 Beyer Speed Figure when unveiled on GI Ricoh Woodbine Mile Day Sept. 16, the chestnut was further flattered when the third finisher from that event came back to win last Friday. With Michael and Jules Iavarone and Bob Sauter having bought in since the debut, she broke a half-step slowly on Wednesday evening but quickly rushed through rivals to seize command. Opening up to lead by a length through an opening quarter in :22.42, she started to build on that advantage into the bend and got the half in :44.56. Nobody was catching her in the stretch, and she kicked home under wraps to air by six lengths or so in a snappy 1:08.77. Delamar (Into Mischief) was second. The winner’s dam, who had posted wins in turf sprints and on synthetic during a seven-victory career, was purchased by Anderson Farms for $52,000 at the 2014 Keeneland January Sale. Out of SW Health Farm (Pleasant Colony), Precision Farming hails from the family of local graded stakes winners Dream About, Lockout and Legarto. Grace and Dignity was her first foal, and she returned to Animal Kingdom the following year but was barren. She produced a colt by the Darley resident this term before being bred back to Hard Spun.
