Earned another check. Finished third as the 5/2 favorite.

There has never been a greater argument in favor of exchange wagering than Ziconic.

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

Ax Man (Misremembered - Shameful, by Flying Chevron) won his debut (MSW at Santa Anita) by 9 1/2 lengths.

Ax Man was really impressive. IMO, he looks very little like Misremembered (which is fine with me :P ) and more like his female side of the family.

I think that was the first of the restricted MSW's at Santa Anita, designed to give small barns a chance to run without facing monsters from the big barns. So who wins it? Baffert. (The restrictions are sale price $100,000 or less, or homebred.) Can't win for losing.

I always liked Misremembered and although he hasn't been much of a sire (possibly because he had a funkyish way of going IIRC) he had quite a bit of talent and has the right to sire a good one.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

That really is funny, Ritvo created the anti-BB rule specifically so that homebreds and less expensive maidens wouldn't have to run against the multi-million dollar auction winners. Guessing a guy like Zito would love to see a similar condition on the east coast, probably call it the anti-TP rule ;)

Ohbytheway, AX MAN got a 96 BSF for his initial outing.

Admittedly Ax Man met the spirit as well as the letter of the restriction--from a small breeder by an inexpensive stallion. At least BB didn't dip in with a Juddmontr homebred! :lol:

Gentildonna's full 3yo sister has passed her gate test and is progressing with training. One to look forward to in 2018

I think she looks like a feminine version of her sire, definitely. Wish she had a name though! :mrgreen:

Gentildonna's full sister is very pretty. Very racy looking.
