Thanks. She's such a star, so I hope she recovers completely.

Harry Angel Excels in Duke of York Season Debut
Godolphin's champion sprinter will target the June 23 Diamond Jubilee Stakes (G1).
Godolphin's champion sprinter Harry Angel made a perfect start to his 4-year-old campaign with a decisive victory in the May 16 Duke of York Clipper Logistics Stakes (G2) going six furlongs at York. The Clive Cox-trained Dark Angel colt will go next to the June 23 Diamond Jubilee Stakes (G1) at Royal Ascot.
"We know he is good, and we just have to get him there in one piece," Cox said.

The Dark Angel colt is really good, and I'm kind of glad that Lady Aurelia is planning to run in the King's Stand again, and is not headed for the Diamond Jubilee.

Kitten's Joy continues to make his mark with overseas runners as Roaring Lion wins the G2 Dante Stakes at York. And he's a grandson of Cambiocorsa, according to a comment after the article. :D

With that kind of pedigree you really have to root for him. :)

Another nice Scat Daddy colt, Sioux Nation, came back last weekend to win the G3 Goffs Lacken Stakes. He won the Norfolk and Phoenix stakes last year and is again being aimed for Royal Ascot.

For the fans of the Frankel colt Without Parole, TVG is going to treat us to a showing of the Heron Stakes from Sandown in a few minutes. :D

Without Parole won. Even though the victory was described as 'workman-like' by the track announcer, this race should set him up well for an Ascot run.

Hats off to his owner/breeder, John Gunther, whose farm is also responsible for breeding Justify. The Gunthers are really doing something right. :D

Favorite Saxon Warrior drew stall 1 for the Epsom Derby on Saturday. He is one of five entries for AOB and four for Coolmore.

Hawkbill and Idaho take on heavy favorite Cracksman in the Coronation Cup (G1) tomorrow, which is run two races before the Epsom Oaks.

I think Cracksman is the best horse in the race, but I think under the right circumstances he is beatable. I think Hawkbill will like the ground conditions and I think the pace scenario favors him.

IIRC, Idaho won a stayer's stakes recently. Highland Reel's little brother has proven stamina and may be coming into this race on the improve.

Cosmic Law (by No Nay Never (grand sire Scat Daddy)) won the Woodcote Stakes at Epsom on Oaks day very impressively!

No Nay Never is off to a good start, isn’t he? Then again, he has the Coolmore colossus behind him...

Cracksman wins the Grade 1 Coronation Cup but had to really work for it. Brilliant ride on 2nd place Salouen who almost stole the race and a good run from German raider Winstoss in 3rd.

Idaho and Hawkbill trailed off

Forever Together (IRE): Galileo x Green Room (making this filly a half to Lord Shanakill)... not the well known US-based Champion Turf Mare Forever Together

I think I was even more impressed by Cracksman today, since he didn't have it easy and had to really work to get his head in front. A very good, brave horse. IMO, both Idaho and Hawkbill couldn't handle the soft ground and just got really tired.
I was surprised Coolmore named their nice filly Forever Together. I know that there are different registries involved, but surely they are aware of our champion Forever Together, who just retired eight years ago. :?
