I believe American Pharoah will have his first starter in Dundalk on Friday evening. A colt out of the MGSW 'UP (IRE)', named HORUS BIRD, owned by Peter Brant and trained by Aidan O'Brien.

Congrats to American Pharoah and his human team on his first (of many) runner/winners! I'm sure his entire camp is breathing a sigh of relief right now.

Is there a replay link?

1st-AQU, $100K, Msw, 2yo, f, 4 1/2f, 1:30 p.m. EST

It’s been 37 years since foals from an American Triple Crown winner raced on U.S. soil, going back to when Seattle Slew’s initial crop of 2-year-olds hit the track in 1982. The wait is over, as American Pharoah’s first two Stateside runners are entered in the Wednesday opener at Aqueduct for trainer Wesley Ward. Only one is expected to run, however, and the filly will try to follow in the auspicious footsteps of Monarch of Egypt, who kicked things off for ‘Pharoah’ progeny Saturday at Naas in Ireland and was promptly named a ‘TDN Rising Star’ with a 2 3/4-length debut score (video).

With morning-line favorite and GISW Hootenanny (Quality Road) half-sister Lady Delaware expected to scratch, that leaves Ice Wine Stable’s TESORINA to carry the flag. The chestnut, bred by Ward, is out of GISW Nonsuch Bay (Mr. Greeley) and shares a second dam with MGSW/GISP Samraat (Noble Causeway). She’s trained steadily, and got a feel for the local track with a half-mile breeze in :50 flat (2/14) Apr. 14.
More, plus other freshmen sires first starters: http://www.thoroughbreddailynews.com/ap ... -at-big-a/

Looks like Maven is going on April 19.

Tesorina, American Pharoah's first U.S. starter (and o/o G1W Nonsuch Bay), finishes third on debut at #Aqueduct. Mo Mystery (Uncle Mo) won the MSW, with stablemate Micromillion (by freshman sire Micromanage) finishing second.

American Pharoah’s Maven Graduates at Big A
Maven (c, 2, American Pharoah–Richies Party Girl, by Any Given Saturday) became the first winner for the 2015 Triple Crown winner in the U.S. and second overall in the Friday opener at Aqueduct.

The 2-5 favorite broke sharply and was gunned to the front by Dylan Davis. Challenged by 21-1 longshot Lebda (Raison d’Etat), a $1,000 EASOCT graduate, at the top of the stretch, Maven kept finding down the lane to graduate by 3/4 of a length.

Maven became his site's first stakes winner! He took a G3 in France.

Also today, Monarch of Egypt became his site's first stakes horse when he finished second in the G2 Railway.

Two of American Pharoah's colts with A P O'Brien are running in tomorrow's 6f Kilminfoyle House Stud Irish EBF for 2 year old maidens: Hong Kong (colt out of Mekko Hokte) and South Saqqara (colt out of Global Finance)

Amusingly enough, this will be the second start for both colts, and both placed 7th in their debuts.

Holy Roman Empress is seeking her first win this Sunday 21 July in the The Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden at 6 furlongs
She placed 12th in her debut last month.

http://www.goracing.ie/race-meetings/ra ... &race=1400

EDITED TO ADD

Seagal (filly out of Sunset Glow) will debut in an MSW at Indiana Grand Race Course this July 19th.

http://www.equibase.com/static/entry/IN ... html#RACE4

Seagal was a $160,000 purchase at OBS April 2019 2YO-in-training sale. She's the first foal out of the Exchange Rate mare Sunset Glow, who won the Grade 1 Del Mar Debutante and Grade 2 Sorrento Stakes as a 2-year-old, then never won again. She was 2nd in the 2014 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf to close out her juvenile year and placed in multiple graded stakes as a 3-yr-old. Sunseet Glow was sold at the end of her 3YO season for $1,375,000 and retired.

Trivia note: The owner of Sunset Glow during her racing years is also now the owner of Seagal.

Forgot to post this yesterday:

Updates to previous posts -

Seagal came in second in her debut.

Holy Roman Empress seems to have been dropped from the 21-July Stallion stakes and entered in the 25-July Jockey Club of Turkey Silver Flash Stakes (G3).
https://www.racingtv.com/racecards/leop ... es-group-3 EDIT - She was scratched from this one, too
I think this would be the third(?) Graded Stakes runner for AP. He currently has a G3 Winner (Maven) and a G2 Place (Monarch of Egypt).

Two more debuts and let's-try-him-on-turf-this-time 2nd race:

Skygaze (filly o/o Skyscrape) makes her debut 7/20 (Saturday) in an MSW on the turf at Woodbine 4:15pm local time EDIT - She came in 4th

American Butterfly (colt o/o Graceie's Butterfly) is making his debut in an MSW in Saratoga on 21-July (Sunday) EDIT - He came in 7th

Another Miracle (colt o/o Retraceable) is running in an MSW at Saratoga on 24-July. He's being switched from dirt to turf after having come in 2nd on his debut July 4th. One wonders if the switch to turf was inspired by Sweet Melania getting her first win after having lost her first two races on the dirt.EDIT - He WON!

Maven (colt from Richies Party Girl) is going for his second graded stakes win, with Frankie Dettori in the irons. Maven was AP's first American winner when he nailed his debut, and then became the first Graded Stakes Winner picking up a G3 in Chantilly in June after being scratched from Royal Ascot due to turf conditions. He's now 2-for-2.

Weds 31 July 2019 - Markel Insurance Molecomb Stakes (Group 3) for 2yo, 5 furlongs
https://www.racingpost.com/racecards/21 ... -31/734765

EDIT: Maven was 10th. His first loss.

Clepat (filly out of Intelyhente) - became American Pharoah's first starter in Japan when she came in 7th in her debut July 27th.

In addition to Maven's race, there are two debuts later this week, both on turf:

Thursday 01 August 2019 - King of Egypt (colt out of Prof. McGonagall) - debuts at Laurel Park race 5, a 5-1/2 furlong MSW on the turf.

Friday 02 August 2019 - Formal Attire (gelding out of Opulence) - debuts 2-Aug at Belterra Park race 6, a 5-furlong MSW on the turf.
Opulence is an unraced daughter of Rags to Riches. She's been bred to American Pharoah 3 times, producing Formal Attire in 2017, no foal for 2018, and a 2019 colt. She also has two other colts.
Her 2016 foal by Verrazano was sold at auction and exported to Japan; he's 4-1-0-0 now but I don't see any results for him in 2019.
Her 2015 foal "The Bobby" by Shanghai Bobby was gelded, so maybe it's a temperament thing from the dam's side? "The Bobby" ran in 4 maiden claimers in 2018, dropping to $7,500 in his final race before disappearing off Equibase.
Rags to Riches was reportedly bred to American Pharoah for a 2020 foal. This is after two of her daughters - Opulence and Rather Special - produced American Pharoah colts. Coolmore owns all three mares.


Hong Kong (colt out of Mekko Hokte), who placed 7th in his debut June 27th, is double-entered for this coming Saturday, 03 August 2019:
3:05 (Six day) at Galway Shearwater Hotel & Spa Irish EBF Maiden (Plus 10 Race) (1m½f)
4:15 (Four day) at Goodwood Qatar EBF Stallions Maiden Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (Colts & Geldings) (7f)
