Instilled Regard moved to Brown's barn at Belmont
Instilled Regard, unraced since a fourth-place finish in the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on May 5, has been transferred from trainer Jerry Hollendorfer to Chad Brown in New York for a late-summer campaign, owner Larry Best said on Thursday.

Instilled Regard was based in California with Hollendorfer through the Kentucky Derby before being rested on a Kentucky farm through May and early June.

“I think he added 75 to 80 pounds,” Best said. “I’ve shipped him to Belmont Park.”

Best said the decision to send Instilled Regard to Brown was based on the preponderance of graded stakes on dirt on the East Coast during the summer compared with California, which emphasizes turf stakes for 3-year-olds.

“I thought he could hang out at Belmont and see how long it takes to get him back into condition,” Best said. “I’d like to get him in the races in late July, but it could be August.”

At Saratoga this summer, the Grade 2 Jim Dandy Stakes, a $600,000 race at 1 1/8 miles, will be run July 28 as a prep for the Grade 1 Travers Stakes, a $1.25 million race at 1 1/4 miles on Aug. 25.

Kanthaka possible for Bing Crosby Stakes
Kanthaka, a winner of two stakes for 3-year-old sprinters this year, may have his first start against older horses in the Grade 1 Bing Crosby Stakes at Del Mar on July 28.

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said on Thursday that Kanthaka has returned to his California stable after being withdrawn from the Grade 2 Woody Stephens Stakes at Belmont Park last Saturday because of a foot ailment.

The $300,000 Bing Crosby is run at six furlongs and is part of the Breeders’ Cup Win and You’re In program, offering a fees-paid berth for the winner in the BC Sprint at Churchill Downs on Nov. 3.

Wonder what happened to St Patrick’s Day? He looked ok to me warming up, but obviously the jockey felt something was off. Hope it was not the same tendon problem flaring up again.

I saw on HRN that he reared up and sat down repeatedly in the starting gate( looked like trying to climb out over it in a panic poor guy) so was scratched on advice of vet. I hope he is ok.

Yeah he was rearing then falling back as if sitting then rearing back up again, falling to his butt again. I'm sure he's fine but that was a wise decision from the vet.

Did not realize this gem from Indian Charlie, assuming it's true....

Not one horse suffered an injury in this year's triple crown races, amazing considering the conditions!
Congrats to the three track maintenance crews!

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Arkansas Derby winner Magnum Moon sustained a career-ending injury during a workout today at Belmont Park, according to Jacob West, the bloodstock agent and racing manager for owners Robert and Lawana Low. The colt is currently at Cornell Ruffian Equine Hospital. (more below)


The injury occurred during the gallop out after his breeze today. West said the injury was a "structural injury" in one of Magnum Moon's front limbs. He's unsure of the course of action at this point, but will know more soon.

"We're basically playing the waiting game."

Why on earth aren't they being more upfront about the severity and nature of the injury?

I think you can blame social media for that. I would imagine the owners don't want phone calls or constant posts about how they did the horse wrong.

Audible out of training, aimed at 2019 Pegasus
Florida Derby winner and Kentucky Derby third-place finisher Audible has been taken out of training and won’t race again until the end of this year at the earliest, trainer Todd Pletcher said.

Audible in late May was sent from Todd Pletcher’s base at Belmont Park to the Rood and Riddle Clinic in Kentucky for a full physical exam because Pletcher wasn’t satisfied with the way the horse was training. Veterinarians found no substantive problems with the colt and after spending a short time at WinStar Farm, a part-owner of the colt, Audible returned to New York.

But after watching the horse continue training since his return, Pletcher recommended pulling the plug again, and Audible has been shipped back to WinStar.

“The bottom line is I just really wasn’t satisfied with his training,” Pletcher said Friday morning. “After discussing it with the connections we felt like some additional time would do him well. Look forward to getting him back in the fall, hopefully with a race at Gulfstream before the Pegasus. If we delayed much more, we’d be putting that plan in jeopardy.”

The 2019 Pegasus World cup is scheduled for Jan. 26.

I know that some fans had the opinion that Audible was held out of the Belmont just to give Justify an easier time of it, but the fact that the colt has been sent to the farm for a second, long rest makes me believe that there really is something amiss with him.
It's not like either the trainer or owner(s) would pass up the lucrative summer sophomore stakes with the talented colt if he were completely sound.

I don't know of any assertive statements but the connections of Justify and those of Supreme Aura have mentioned it being under consideration.
