Champion Caledonia Road done for the year; to be offered at auction
Caledonia Road, the champion 2-year-old filly of 2017, will not race again this year and will be offered at public auction later in 2018, her connections announced Monday night.

According to a press release issued by Nick Sallusto of Sallusto and Albina Bloodstock, who manages Caledonia Road for part-owners Newtownanner Stud, Caledonia Road will be turned out after developing bone bruising. Caledonia Road finished fifth of six in the Grade 1 Acorn at Belmont Park on June 9.

Intrigued by the six furlong drill. Still wondering where she's being pointed to next.

Rayya is running this Thursday at Prairie Meadows in the Iowa Oaks. I hope the trip to a relatively small track will help her get some confidence back after her next-to-last finish in the Kentucky Oaks.

Caledonia Road will be sidelined for the rest of the year and sold at one of the November sales after developing bone bruising.

Rich on TVG was talking about Wonder Gadot this morning; she is NOT targeting the Canadian Triple Crown. Casse plans to run her in the 2nd leg, the Prince of Wales, at Fort Erie on the dirt as a prep for the G1 Alabama at Saratoga.
It's official:

They had said as much on the Queen's Plate broadcast they were currently considering/targeting the PoW and the Alabama. But it's not cast in stone yet since Flameaway is also pointing at the PoW, however if their end target is really the Alabama, then he mentioned the Prince of Wales could be a good prep.

In other news, Monomoy Girl will be skipping the Alabama because they don't think she can get the distance.

While I'm rooting for a Wonder Gadot win in the Prince of Wales, I wouldn't mind seeing Flameaway do well. The Scat Daddy colt had a pretty tough Derby trail and then ran 13th in that swampy Derby. His return to racing in the June 23 Ohio Derby wasn't great, as he faded after dueling for the lead.
He's a good, tough racehorse and I love my Scat Daddies; I just hope the Derby Trail grind and mudwrestling Derby hasn't ruined the colt.

Personally I'd give the colt a freshening up and put him in some softer spots to get him to regain his confidence and I'm not sure that facing Wonder Gadot in a 9.5F test is going to do that.

Rayya was scratched from the Iowa Oaks... does anyone know why?

What are the temps/heat index there? She's a rather slight filly, so maybe she would be vulnerable to heat stress?

But she's been racing in Dubai and training in California ;)
I saw comments on Bloodhorse the other day saying she was out already a few days ago...
Just dug a little, it seems both of Baffert's horses meant to run at Prairie Meadows were scratched before shipping out.
Cue the conspiracy theorists

If Baffert still wants to run Dr. Dorr in the Suburban, maybe it was a shipping issue? Since Bob already had Hoppertunity shipping to Belmont, Dr. Dorr could travel along with him.
Perhaps difficulties trying to arrange multiple flights left Rayya without a ride?

I read that Baffert was having second thoughts about 1) the heat in the Midwest and 2) night racing.

She is a gorgeous big filly. I hope she stays in form and makes the Distaff this fall.

"And all the horses broke well". . . Huh? Nikki almost went down and came up running rank to the clubhouse turn. And you know he saw it, you could "hear" the pause before he spoke. :roll:

Nice return for Elate, she sizzled that 4th quarter.

I’m a huge fan of Elate.
It’s always nice to see Claiborne get a good one.

Gamble's Ghost Victorious in Woodbine's Matron Stakes

The 5-year-old mare rallied from second to last to win in the final yards.

Unsurprisingly, Lady Aurelia has been retired.

After her lackluster performance at Royal Ascot, a track she has done so well at in the past, I thought she might have decided that racing was no longer what she wanted to do.
