Forever Unbridled is so talented, happy for her.


Stellar Wind had her ears pinned down the back side when she should have been relaxing. She got Sadlered.

If Abel Tasman had broken a bit sharper, I wonder if she might have nailed FU on the wire. She sure was running in the stretch.

Do you think she was over-trained?
That occurred to me, as well.

Very happy for Forever Unbridled. And what a win for Unbridled's Song, gone too soon.
Did not expect Stellar Wind to misfire so badly even though I had a feeling she wouldn't win.
Nice late run by Abel Tasman, genius early move by Velazquez, leaving the 3yo with too much to do to catch him and FU.

She outran my expectations, but not sure she was ever going to get by the winner. 3yo filly eclipse is a nice runner up prize, and we're not disappointed having two mares selling i/f to Quality Road.

Forever Unbridled has got to be one of those under-rated horses that shows up every time. Nice mare. Too bad about Stellar Wind, she's better than that.

Always glad to learn something from these events, I'll definitely keep it in mind going forward. Such a shame to watch her go out like that after a very nice career.

I think Forever Unbridled was very much the best, but Abel Tasman is going to be very good next year.

...and as I'm typing this, oh man I forgot about the Pegasus thing. It'll be great to see her in that race!

I'm not sure he was being serious but seeing Fipke so happy and enthused about her made me a little emotional! Also as a fellow canuck his accent spoke to me :lol:

I hope he was serious and we get to see her again next year. He had mentioned this years Pegasus before but she had a bone chip. Hell if he sends her to the Pegasus and Dubai World Cup and she doesn't want to race anymore, he could still have her bred next year.

Abel Tasman was very good this year. No one wanted to see it, though.
