John Gosden reported today that Cracksman hit his head hard on the stalls right before the gates opened and that's why he slightly missed the break.

I would love to see Caspian Prince win the Dash for a fourth time.

Not a great trip for Saxon Warrior, but I don’t think he would have caught Masar even with a perfect trip.

Yeah, Saxon Warrior was boxed in for quite a while and, when Ryan tried to get him out, he was blocked and had to check a little. Maybe he wouldn't have caught Masar but, if he had been able to make a continuous run with no obstacles, he would have been much closer, IMHO.
Nice pedigree on Masar...by the 2008 Derby winner New Approach (Galileo) out of Khawlah (Cape Cross), who took the UAE Oaks and the UAE Derby at Meydan in 2011.

Study of Man gives Deep Impact a European Derby win after all as he wins the Prix Du Jockey Club (G1) at Chantilly

His Grand-Dam is also the mighty Miesque

Ride of the season from Elaura Cieslik today in France? Saddle slips in straight, but rides on bareback to win by 3/4 length. Calm and courage to rival any big-name jock.


Look for the white shadow roll near the rail - #2 in blue/white silks. Saddle was completely upside down and back to the stifle! :shock:
