Same video with English-language narration. It is quite good.

I have watched this teaser 7 times and each time it sends chills down my spine. Have to get there next year.

Thought that was Alt-J doing the music.

Fitzpleasure is really good off that album.

That was sweet to see the interview with Treve's "Lad" (groom) and how emotional she was after the race. I love how the grooms get a trophy along with owner/trainer/jockey in the post race presentation...... and she even got a kiss from Frankie.

Intello(GER) cruises to win in the G3 Prix du Prince d'Orange 2000m at Longchamp today.

Will he be pointed to the Arc after all?

A wild one at Cologne! The top 2 finishers in the Gr 1 Preis von Europa -- Meandre and Empoli -- were both DQ'd and placed 3rd and 4th, respectively. On to the Arc anyway, of course, for Meandre, but I'm wondering if this has ever happened before in a G1 anywhere?

10 times I've watched it - still chills.

This has to be the best racing promo ever.

....For a country that produces on average only 860 foals per year to have come up with those two horses is a major feat.
