The White Christmas Stakes for gray and white horses was run at Kawasaki last night.

Won by USA bred ALPHABET (The Factor)

There used to be Gray Ghost Handicaps at several tracks in the US during the winter. Anyone here still card them?

Isn't there also a big one in the UK at Ascot?
Must be quite a sight to see a field of greys and whites charging down the stretch.

Well this is a bummer... but then again, good that they figured it out before she could injure it further. Hopefully she makes it back to racing.

Will Isla Bonita be standing at Shadai as well? He's really a stunner to look at, he's a classic winner, and with his durability throughout 5 seasons of racing, winning graded stakes from 7f to 11f... he could be a really good value.
