Congratulations Joe (Littlefield) for the win with Ch. Moscow Mule! Looks like you're Final Furlong's Bob Baffert (this year at least).

Anything Goes / Travers Stakes 2018 (Aug. 25)

There is still a number of millionaire races this year! Next is Travers Stakes. It is nicknamed the "Mid-Summer Derby" and is the third-ranked race for American three-year-olds according to international classifications, behind only the Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes. First held in 1864, it was named for William R. Travers, the president of the old Saratoga Racing Association. His horse, Kentucky, won the first running of the Travers.

Past Final Furlong winners:

  • 2019 - Ch. Don't Trip, Track: Fast    Time: 1:49.080    SF: 274. He is now inactive under Final Furlong ownership, but we have his half sister, out of amazing racehorse and broodmare, NCh. Trippi Flowers. Our filly, Fool For Flowers is now switched to steeplechase and doing well.
  • 2020 - Ch. Strike It Lucky, Track: Good    Time: 2:03.075    SF: 219. This year he won Dubai World Cup and Metropolitan Stakes.
  • 2021 - Ch. Ultimate Craving, Track: Fast    Time: 1:53.790    SF: 242. We currently own his dam, Ch. Opulent, which makes him a half brother to some of our foals! Opulent is a twin sister of NCh. Irish Gold.


Any plans? I may enter Ch. Crème Brûlée, although he's not really "stakes level" this year (mostly). But he likes the distance, and dirt. And his sire won the 2008 Travers Stakes...

Thanks! Really many fillies this year. Also my racing fillies are better than colts. Maybe I'm becoming a filly & mare specialist ;)
And I found some nice German words! No time for actually studying the language though...

The Secretariat Stakes is a Grade 1 flat horse race in the United States for three-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run over a distance of 1 1⁄4 miles (2,000 meters). Held annually in mid August, it is raced on the same day and on the same turf course at Arlington Park, Arlington Heights, Illinois.
This year it will run only a few days earlier than in Final Furlong.

Congrats! I'm still waiting on one.

Decided to enter Gifted Detail. Hoping it's a good move since he'll only have less than a 2 week break after winning the Del Mar Futurity last week.

Congratulations for the win! That was almost a full field - 13 horses, including some stakes winners.
