French 1,000 Guineas winner (and British 1,000 Guineas second) Laurens just won the Prix de Diane.

She's certainly a very talented filly!

It was an O'Brien 1-2-3 in the Irish Derby at the Curragh...except the winner wasn't trained by Aiden. :D
Latrobe shocks Saxon Warrior to land first Classic for Joseph O'Brien
Like father like sons. Joseph O'Brien notched his first Classic success as Latrobe, who won a lowly maiden at the course last time out, held off Rostropovich and Saxon Warrior in an enthralling finish to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby under Donnacha O'Brien.

There are some classic pedigrees here; Latrobe is by Camelot, and Joseph and Donnacha are by Aiden. 8-)
Aiden O'Brien has clearly done a great job teaching Joe how to train (maybe too well? :lol:). This is the second world-class race where Joe's charge has defeated his father's horses. Last year, Joseph's Rekindling edged out Aiden's Johannes Vermeer to win the Melbourne Cup.

Happy to see Camelot get a classic winner in his first crop. He was such a talented racehorse and it’s nice to see a son of Montjeu do well after poor St. Nicholas Abbey never had a chance.

Aww...St. Nick. :(
I suspect that the Coolmore lads still haven't gotten over his loss. They tried so hard and so long to overcome his injury and the ensuing cascade of complications.
Speaking of pedigrees; Coolmore's Van Beethoven won the G2 Railway Stakes for two-year-olds in the race before the Derby. The handsome son of Scat Daddy is from his last crop, so I hope he goes on to great success next year. It would be cool if SD's last offspring also take down some of the European classics, like Justify did in the US Triple Crown.

This Saturday’s Coral-Eclipse (G1) field is shaping up nicely. AOB is wheeling back Saxon Warrior from his third in the Irish Derby last weekend to face Epsom Derby winner Masar. Derby third Roaring Lion is also entered, along with Hawkbill, Happily, and Cliffs of Moher.

Interesting that Ryan Moore is going to be riding at Belmont this weekend, instead of in Britain. So, Donnacha O'Brien gets the call on Saxon Warrior.
