Anything Goes / Re: Preakness Stakes 2018 (May 19)
« on: May 20, 2018, 12:55:04 pm »
We haven’t had an English TC winner in RL since 1970, when Nijinsky won. Sea The Stars won the first two legs but didn’t contest the St Leger. Camelot came closest in 2012 wining the first two legs and finishing 2nd in the St Leger behind Encke. There’s already talk that this year’s 2000 Guineas winner, Saxon Warrior, could be a TC horse. It would be amazing if we finally have another TC winner here.

Glad he managed to do it, he looked very sore after the Derby. Let’s hope he can do the TC.

General/Questions / Re: Irish, English, American TC/TT races
« on: May 09, 2018, 02:29:32 pm »
I'm asking what it is in FF, since the Irish 2000 was today but the English 2000 is this Saturday (vs RL English 2000 being last week and Irish 2000 in ~2 weeks). Since I saw the Irish Derby is 7 days after the Irish 2000 Guineas in FF, but the Oaks is over a month after the Irish 1000 Guineas, I wasn't sure what the official series are in FF -- giving the boys 7 days vs. the girls 5ish weeks seems more than a little off, lol.

Ah l, I see. Well, it’d be the same races as in real life just at funny times! We only have a few FF races in Ireland but the FF English season is too short to realistically match the RL version so I guess they have to be squeezed in where possible.

English and Irish TC consist of 2000 Guineas (mile) Derby (mile and a half) and St Leger (mile and three quarters).

The English TC is only open to 3yos, the Irish St Leger is also open to older horses. English 2000 was last weekend, Irish 2000 is usually two weeks later. English Derby is 2nd June, the Irish equivalent is the 30th (I think, that weekend at least). English St Leger usually early September, Irish equivalent mid-Spetember. Fillies are broadly similar the 1000 Guineas races run on the same weekend as the colts’ race. English Oaks is the day before the Derby but the Irish Oaks 2-3 weeks after the colts race. There’s no “filly only” version on the St Ledger - the Fillies’ TC includes the St Ledger as it does for colts.
