NCh. Al Mundhir x GCh. Private Party - NCh. Sneak Peek (S)
10.0h strawberry roan colt

1/2 brother to Don Galante. Private Party was one of my first stakes level racehorses; then I sold her as a broodmare, and then I bought her back. Her foals don't seem to share her enthusiasm for racing, but they may be late bloomers. "Übermorgen" means "the day after tomorrow", so something like Spanish "mañana"... Private Party missed her booking to Space Chips and she will wait till next year with breeding.

Maybe there won't be American Triple Crown winner in Final Furlong this year (there's still a chance to win the English, or the Canadian), but it's still one of the richest races in the game. Meanwhile, in real life, Justify will try to win the third leg. Do you think he can?

"The 2018 Belmont Stakes will be the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes and the 107th time the event will take place at Belmont Park. The 1 1⁄2-mile (2,400 m) race, known as the "test of the champion", is the final leg in Thoroughbred horse racing's American Triple Crown series."

There is a very impressive photo by Barbara Livingston of Justify jumping a puddle during the race:

also his body looks "twisted", front legs to his right and hind legs to his left - good that he didn't lose his balance!
Another great photo is by Alex Evers, Justify looking so clean at the finish (the sky blue shadow roll!) in front of horses covered with mud:

That was a picturesque day if one had enough equipment and skills...

Beautiful black filly arrived today.

TSCHüSS
NCh. Space Chips x GCh. Yeman - A.P. Indy (S)
9.1h black filly

Name means (informal) bye, cheers, ciao; and I think it's one of the very pretty German words. This filly will probably become a dirt sprinter, and both her parents were 2yo champions. GCh. Yeman will be bred to Curlin.

No American Triple Crown in Final Furlong this year, but there is a chance for it in real life! Justify won the Preakness Stakes on extremely foggy and rainy day:

"The conditions for the race were so poor that the Washington Post jokingly said the track "should have been downgraded from "sloppy" to "biblical"". After heavy downpours over several days, the rain finally stopped shortly before the race but then a heavy fog descended, limiting visibility to about a sixteenth of a mile." - 2018 Preakness Stakes on Wikipedia

Race Replay on Youtube

We were much luckier in Final Furlong; the track was "good" here. However, the Derby winner Ch. Local Haunt finished 7th/10. Congratulations Lewis for winning the Preakness with Ch. Victor's Podium!

I bred one mare to Silver Wizard, for a 3x3 inbreeding to Highland Sorceress. Vainilla seemed to have her best year as a 3yo. Highland Sorceress was unraced, but she was a Platinum ranked broodmare.

Anything Goes / The Epsom Derby 2018 (June 2nd)
« on: May 14, 2018, 07:58:32 pm »
"It is Britain's richest horse race, and the most prestigious of the five Classics. It is sometimes referred to as the "Blue Riband" of the turf. The race serves as the middle leg of the Triple Crown, preceded by the 2000 Guineas and followed by the St Leger, although the feat of winning all three is now rarely attempted. The name "Derby" has become synonymous with great races all over the world, and as such has been borrowed many times. The Derby run at Epsom is the original and in Great Britain is invariably referred to as "The Derby"."

Saxon Warrior is trained by Aidan O'Brien, who also trained the past year's winner named Churchill. Saxon Warrior was ridden by Donnacha O'Brien, the trainer's son. Aged 19, Donnacha was born the month after his father won this race for the first time, with King Of Kings in 1998.
