Battle of Midway, Tatters to Riches Stick Out in Comma to the Top

https://www.horseracingnation.com/news/ ... to_the_Top

1. Tatters to Riches
2. Curlin Road
3. Roman Rosso
4. St. Joe Bay
5. All Out Blitz
6. Very Very Stella
7. Battle of Midway

~ Lovely little field assembled.
Battle of Midway won nicely. Stalked the whole way, then took the lead around the turn and never looked back. Won by 5 lengths I think.

Longshot All Out Blitz was second and veteran St. Joe Bay was third.

Cloud Computing returns in an allowance race this Thursday at Aqueduct, Race 6. He faces familiar names Hammerin Amber and Weather Wiz. Also in the race is Phipps’s Snap Decision, a son of Salute.

His first race back this year wasn’t that bad. Just a stepping stone. Not sure how much faith I have in him, but you know what? At least they’re trying.
...he was eased.

Good news!

In a post-race interview (in the "Accelerate Won" article on BH) Thunder Snow's trainer said he was likely to stay in training for 2019 to defend his DWC title.

Dual Grade I Winner Catholic Boy to Run As a 4-Year-Old

http://live.drf.com/nuggets/45998-dual- ... 4-year-old

~ Not an older horse of 2018, but this is about running as an older horse for the next year so it qualifies for the thread.

I know what you mean to say.
But I would look at the bright side. ;)
He may win more G1s next year to increase his value before he retires to stud. :D

The Queen of England may be 92, but she's showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Earlier this week, the British monarch was photographed horseback riding in Windsor.

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

I'm absolutely tickled that Elizabeth is still riding at 92. That's impressive. What an inspiration for those of us who are no longer youngsters. :D
Looking at their mounts, I'm curious about the breed (which is not mentioned in the article). With the small size, sturdy build and feathered legs, I'd guess some type of Cob, maybe Welsh Cob or a matched set of black Gypsy Cobs?

She doesn't appear to be wearing a helmet. :shock: I expect the horse is as close to bombproof as possible, though.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

From the linked article:
"For the occasion, Her Majesty wore a navy blue coat and a printed, cream-colored scarf in lieu of a helmet. In the past, the Telegraph has reported that she always declines to wear a "hard hat" so as to not mess up her hair. "

And who is going to tell The Queen that she must wear a helmet. :P :lol:

That looks like her black Fell Pony. I saw an article a year or so ago that identified the breed, one I hadn't heard of before.

So, maybe we're not all that particular about where we post articles when there's not the perfect thread for them. Maybe the Fell Pony is an older horse, dunno. :roll:

Other possible contenders for the Clark Handicap include Bravazo, Hawaakom and Leofric.
