Thunder Snow return to action likely next month
Saeed bin Suroor revealed that Thunder Snow, the impressive winner of the G1 Dubai World Cup Sponsored by Emirates Airline at Meydan, UAE, at the end of March, could make his European return in the Prix Jacques le Marois (G1, 1m, turf, 12 August) at Deauville.

The trainer said: “We are planning to take Thunder Snow to the G1 Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1, 10f, dirt, 29 September) at Belmont Park, New York, at the end of September, but want to give him a race in Europe first. That could be the Prix Jacques le Marois.

“Thunder Snow is fine – he just needed a break. The ultimate target this year is the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1, 10f, dirt, November 3, Churchill Downs).”

Easy win (4 1/2 lengths) for Alpha Centauri today in the Falmouth S (G1). Third G1 win in a row.

I can't wait to see her in the BC Mile. IMO, she's so good that she could go on a Goldikova-style win streak in The Mile, if she were to stay in training that long.

Alpha Centauri is a very nice filly. Interesting to read that the trainer was so nervous in the days leading up to the race.

U.S. Navy Flag takes the July Cup (G1). Looks like the cut back in distance was just what he needed. 1 - 3 finish for AOB and War Front.

Masar has been taking out of training for the year but they hope to run him as a 4yo.

He is going to get a break and his connections are eyeing the Everest in Australia in October.
