Seattle Dynasty, Maxwell's Demon, Trinity Run, Quick Breeze, Moment of Majesty, Afleet Pegasus and, Viking Fleet are the ones that most interest me!  I wonder why?

Have a good day!

Hotmail was down last time I checked!

I gave them a Timeform double squiggle!

Well deserved at present but hitherto Hotmail has been great!

God Bless

shesfast - Ritzy Jones won on July 21, the replay is above under "3-year old Results July 21." We are not systematically following his 2-year olds, but his 2-year old son Backtalk won the Bashford Manor (gr. III) on July 3, and he's had several other 2-year old winners this year.
