  1. didn’t realize that was a previous win for Interaction – saw video not close at all but came from way back. It was actually a 1-2-3 finish for Northern Dancer descendants

  2. Frank, that’s the ongoing gift of thoroughbred heritage. What other sport just keeps bringing our favorites back again and again?

    Sid, why do have to sleep? The Aga Khan’s unbeaten three year old filly Daryakana just won the Hong Kong Vase! Sacred Kingdom bested so many good horses to win the Sprint. Good Ba Ba took the Mile for the third year in a row. There were no Tweets to follow, the Racing Post was the next best thing this morning.

  3. Wendy, I do have insomnia (I think!) but do occasionally succumb to sleep. Plus, the Hong Kong races get pretty good coverage, so I try to go to places that may not — like India, Central/Eastern Europe, Caribbean, etc.

  4. You are forgiven for getting your sleep! The win photo above is stunning, so bright and just jumping off of the page. Photo quality at some other sites, even Bloodhorse, is less than what it should be. Racing Post does have some better shots than most. The Storm Cat line will go on forever it seems, especially with the Giant Causeway duplicates x 4 and in South Africa and Chile. Not to mention the Quarter Horses, I wonder if the super filly Hearts Wide Open will be one of his frozen dates? It is rumored, stress RUMORED, that she has 5 fertilized eggs growing in other mares. Rumors which may have originated with the anti Quarter Horse breeding factions of the anti-slaughter movement. I do hope that the racing media will let us know when Storm Cat’s Quarter Horse babies start racing and how they’ll do. Another lease on life for fans of this stallion.

    New Zealand anyone? The three year old filly Katie Lee made history there this year by becoming the first horse in that country to win both the 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas. She suffered a close defeat this weekend in the Ezibuy Eulogy Stakes. And the filly Elstreme, a hopeful candidate for next year’s Cox Plate, won the Cal Isuza Stakes only one week after winning the Group I Captain Cook Stakes and traveling on the road some 6 hours to get there. Her next start is in the Group I Zabeel Classic on “Boxing Day”, right around Christmas I believe.

    New Zealand racing too small to care about maybe? Now turning Sid’s blog back over to Sid. LOL

  5. Wendy, thanks for taking over and giving us a spin through NZ with the filly 1000 and 2000 Guineas winner Katie Lee –quite an accomplishment as the first ever to land the double. She’s a daughter of Pins, who traces back to Tom Fool, whose line here exists mainly through Tom Fool’s son Buckpasser.
