Catalina Cruiser returned to form in the G2 True North. He drifted out down the home stretch but got up in time. Stakes record.

Fast And Accurate won the Robellino Stakes at Penn National impressively. I'm not even sure he was put to the whip much, if at all.

Have just been informed by owner Ralph Evans that multiple Grade 1 winner Diversify has been retired after coming out of his work yesterday at Belmont Park with a suspensory injury.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I thought Gift Box ran well in the Stephen Foster on the quick turnaround.

Catholic Boy cruising a bullet on 6/23/19 at Belmont with the Suburban in his crosshairs. Do we know who else is running? (And then there is the subplot of J. Thomas taking over Diversify, last year's winner, after Rick Violette's death and the horse's recent retirement.)

Great news. Hope Soi Phet runs well Saturday, and that he enjoys a long and happy retirement at Old Friends. And two thumbs up to Mr. Powell. Good job.

Thomas said Catholic Boy is likely to stay on dirt for his next outing, eyeing a cut back to nine furlongs in the Aug. 31 Woodward Stakes Presented by NYRA Bets (G1) at Saratoga—which is shaping up as a potential rematch with Preservationist, who also came out of the Suburban in good order.

Gunnevera out of Whitney with a foot bruise.

This horse has the worst luck.

Hofberg's return to the races - well placed. . .

It's race 9 on July 18 if the wrong race comes up.

A little over 15 hands, but he didn't let that keep him from scorching a 114 BSF yesterday.
