That was so exciting. They're already calling her next year's Guineas winner, so I hope that's not a jinx. She is small but mighty!

-- from Bloodhorse Daily (July 1st)

''HIGH HOPES FOR YOSHIDA''
http://cdn.bloodhorse.com/daily-app/pdf ... 170701.pdf
Several wow-worthy moments on Preakness Stakes Day 2017 at Pimlico Race Course made the afternoon
one to remember, but the most impressive rendition of the day from the 2014 crop arguably occurred approximately
four hours before the country's best dirt 3-yearolds contested the middle jewel of the Triple Crown.
Showing every sign of possible stardom in the $100,000 James W. Murphy Stakes over the Pimlico
lawn, Yoshida closed from 23 lengths back in last to and canny Joel Rosario.......
"I thought she was a perfect balance for Heart's Cry and the Sunday Silence line," Walden said. "We're
excited about Yoshida and we'll see what transpires next week. It's going to be an acid test. If he wins a
grade 1 for us and is capable of that kind of effort, I think people will be attracted to that different kind of
bloodline and obviously any horse we acquire like this, we are hoping can land in the stallion barn."

I'm pulling for Yoshida to develop even more into a really top-level horse. Bringing Sunday Silence's line back to the U.S. is a wonderful goal and I'm grateful to his connections for making the effort.

Agreed. He's a very exciting prospect for both the racetrack and the breeding shed.

Tachyon, I don't know how to thank you enough for keeping us informed of Sunday Silence's descendants. He is among my all-time favorites. I saw him run numerous times when I lived in Southern California, and love him dearly to this day. I'm so very glad that the Japanese saw the value in him when American breeders did not.

I'm not a wealthy person, but if I was, I would buy as many good Sunday Silence descendants as I could and bring them back to the U.S. Ah, dreams...

Red Falx(JPN), 2011H. Swept Overboard(USA) x Vermouth(JPN) by Sunday Silence(USA), demonstrated an extraordinary closing kick and successfully defended his G1 Sprinters Stakes title, becoming the third horse in history since Sakura Bakushin O(JPN) (1992-93) and Lord Kanaloa(JPN) (2012-13) to do so.

And I believe that Swept Overboard(USA) has now found a very credible successor at stud in Japan!! :D 8-) :D

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: Holy cow, talk about a flying finish... that last furlong was insane!!! Super impressive win for Red Falx & no shame at all in that second for Lets Go Donki.

tachyon, did Nanako Fujita have a mount in this race? I thought I read something earlier in the week about it...

I like those End Sweep x Sunday Silence cross!!! :D

Yes, 2015 Okasho winner Let's Go Donki ran a super race for the second place.
No, Nanako Fujita was not in that race. She has never been given a chance to ride at the highest level yet.

And here are some recent picks of Swept Overboard(USA). ;)

Thank you for the pictures of Swept Overboard. He was a neat little horse -- his biggest win was in the Met Mile, but I remember him mostly from his nail-bitingly close come-from-behind wins in sprints on both surfaces in SoCal.

I'm glad he finally got a good son.

Real Steel (JPN) held off Satono Aladdin to take the G2 Mainichi Okan at Tokyo Racecourse. Lots of big names in the field which also included Soul Stirring (who led most of the way) and Makahiki, who were both coming back after layoffs.

I read on RacingPost that Real Steel may come over for the Breeders' Cup (the Turf, I presume). It would be cool to have Japan represented at Del Mar.
