Majority interest in 2-time G3 winner Axelrod, the Pa. Derby runner-up, purchased by Phoenix Thoroughbreds
A majority interest in the 3-year-old colt Axelrod, a two-time Grade 3 winner who most recently was second in the Grade 1 Pennsylvania Derby, has been sold to Phoenix Thoroughbreds by original owner Slam Dunk Racing, which will retain a minority interest in the colt, according to Nick Cosato, who heads the Slam Dunk partnership.

Axelrod won the Indiana Derby and Smarty Jones, both Grade 3 races, prior to the Pennsylvania Derby. He also was second in the Grade 3 Affirmed Stakes in June. He is based at Santa Anita with trainer Michael McCarthy.

According to Cosato, "Michael gets to keep the horse."

And didn't Lady's Secret just straight up 'Nope' in her last start? Stopped out of the gate?

Audible is working better than he was in the spring, the vacation must have done him good.

‘Mild’ Fever Forces Catholic Boy To Skip Planned Workout
....According to drf.com, ....the son of More Than Ready missed a planned workout this past weekend at Belmont Park due to a fever.
“It's very minor in the grand scheme of things,” said trainer Jonathan Thomas. “He had a mild temperature, which has since rectified. We just didn't want to take any chances.

He's such an interesting horse, with top form on both dirt and turf, so I hope this doesn't compromise his prep for the Classic. But with only four weeks to go, any disturbance of a horse's training schedule isn't a good thing. :?

I think he's got more than enough time, but then again I don't train racehorses.

Go Catholic Boy!

Nero makes a successful return to the races at Del Mar. Behaved perfectly for a change!
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

That was a pretty bad second by Audible, although he was bizarrely wide and the track is a mess. Still should have finished well-clear of those horses.

Yeah. It sounds like the Pegasus may even be off the table.
