Re: Across the pond

Frankie Dettori very emotional after the race, expressed how special Enable is to him. I really want her to get that 3rd Arc but she has already stamped herself as an all time great and I’m looking forward to seeing how she does as a broodmare. I suspect she’ll be seeing Dubawi at stud as her first ...

Re: Imperative

Just to be clear, @ShamIAmNot is a satire account so that tweet was meant as a joke.

But maybe you all already knew that and I just misinterpreted it ;)

Bodemeister in the 2012 Kentucky Derby. It was a freaky performance and a tough loss for him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tn9hye7U6g Crystal Ocean in the King George giving it all he has but being turned away by the super gutsy Enable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EnyHrfNQA American Pharoa...

Re: The Saudi cup

The well known jockeys publicly stating that the track and footing is perfect in every way made me lol. Because if anyone will tolerate a dissenting opinion, it's the royal family of Saudi Arabia. Baffert said its to deep a track for a horse to run in the Saudi Cup and then make it to the Dubai WC ...

Re: The Million Dollar G1 Whitney Stakes

I thought that looked a very comfortable win for McKinzie, no doubt he’s a very talented horse!

Also in the Test (GI) before, what a battle between Covfefe and Serengeti Empress!! Bellafina in 3rd, looks like they caught up to her.

Re: Across the pond

Also just want to say, John Gosden is such a classy trainer! Always praising his staff and just now after TDH's win he was being interviewed by ITV and he asked them to interview one of his staff Maisie instead, she rides TDH at home so John said she deserved all the credit.

Yea I agree, Defoe has clearly found his stride this season and he had some good horses behind him, Nagano Gold may also be a lot better than everyone expects. I hope more and more trainers and owners from the so called 'Division 2' racing countries bring over their horses for a crack at some of the...
