Re: Bookings for well-known mares 2013

* I was thinking the same thing as Bare It All...even if Frankel has been getting 95% of his mares in foal, Vodka is a big miss. I wonder if she has been left in England for another try next year, or if she has been brought back to Japan by now. She has been in Europe since 2010, I can't see them b...

With all the hubbub about how fertile Frankel was, I hope this is just an unlucky year for Vodka and she didn't have an underlying issue.
No, Vodka didn't have any underlying issue.

Volare is a biiiiiiiig boy! He now weighs 593 kilogram. So he may need more works before his debut.

Re: Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (G1)

Today Orfevre ran much better than I had expected. That was his second start of the year off a 165 days layoff including the setback caused by his bleeding. Glad that he still looks like being in his fine form at his age and after the rough year. Yeah, I agree, it's hard to evaluate his performance ...

Re: Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (G1)

That was an intersting stretch battle between the Japanese Derby winner and the Epsom Derby winner.

I believe that both horses had ideal preps.

Re: Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (G1)

Kizuna(JPN) takes the Niel, beating Ruler of the World(IRE), Ocovango(GB) and Flintshire(GB).

His jockey Yutaka Take has just commented that his horse was about 85% today.
