Capri wins the St. Leger (G1) in a close finish over Crystal Ocean and Stradivarius. First St. Leger win for Ryan Moore. Capri is the first Irish Derby winner to win the St. Leger since Nijinsky in 1970.

Gutted for the two Sea The Stars colts but it was a great race!

The race before the St. Leger was the Champagne, a G2 for 2yos. The $3 million Scat Daddy yearling, Mendelssohn (half to Beholder, etc.), finished 7th and last, unfortunately :(
The race was won by the other O'Brien-trained Scat Daddy colt, Seahenge, out of Fools In Love by Not For Love. That's all USA breeding. ;)

I know Ryan Moore is technically the Ballydoyle Stable Jockey, but in the last few weeks, when it comes to Moore vs. Donnacha O'Brien, O'Brien Jr. seems to comes out on top!

Aidan O'Brien could have four horses running in the Arc - Capri, Highland Reel (2nd last year), Order of St George (3rd), and the filly Winter. IMHO (and Paddy Power & Betfair's opinions :P ) all of them have a chance.

The big question for O'Brien's yard could be; who will Ryan ride? :P :lol:

I would think that it's a toss up between Capri and Winter.
And I hope that Ryan will pick up Winter who I think has the best shot.

"...I hope that Ryan will pick up Winter who I think has the best shot."

It's hard to ignore how well three-year-old fillies (weight break!) have done over the last decade in the Arc, so I agree with you. Still have to favor Enable over Winter when it comes to the fillies, but I wouldn't be surprised if those two are in front at the finish.

Zayat paid 1.6M euros for a Frankel colt at Goffs today. Aidan O'Brien will train at Ballydoyle.

O'Brien may have SEVEN horses in the Arc. In addition to the four mentioned above, add Cliffs of Moher, Idaho and Seventh Heaven.
