two out, two on the board, so pretty pleased! Starting to get the hang of this. ;)

Wins:
Pandronian (3yo, Spock) in a maiden

Shows:
Colorful Throne (2yo, Worthy Victor) in a NW2 - First time out since I bought her in the 2yo auction, so very nice to see her already starting to earn her keep ;)

No wins today, but we did get a spot on the board in a stakes race, so I'd say it was still a pretty good day.

Places:
Glossy Top (2yo, Spock) in a NW3 Allowance
He's Her Knight (5yo, Double Cross) in an Allowance
Busy Invention (3yo, Dark Continent) in the Gallorette Handicap (Gr. 3) - We claimed this girl for only 5k, and since then she's earned 2nd in both stakes races we've put her in, so I'd say she's earned her keep.

Fourths:
Soldier Laddie (2yo, Belanso) in a NW2 Allowance

Fifths:
Squire (4yo, Long Live The King) in an Allowance

Also Rans:
Bravo Worthy (4yo, Worth The Wait) 6th in an Allowance
Silly Victory (3yo, Lord Nelson) 6th in the Gallorette Handicap (Gr. 3)

Not at all bad! a lot of these were pretty much thrown in because they hadn't raced in a while and hadn't shown much promise. Pleased with my stakes entries as they all brought home a pay cheque and especially In No Time as that was a "just throw in and keep fingers crossed!"

Anything Goes / Belmont Stakes 2018 (June 9)
« Last post by Hilda with Clicker on May 22, 2018, 01:58:35 pm »
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."
