Work That Horse

News and Notes

Now that the Belmont Stakes has come and gone, I have decided that it's time to let go of our 2007 crop. I will update the results from the last three days, but I will no longer be posting entries and results for three-year-olds. It's time to concentrate fully on the 2008 crop. I will still tweet wins for the 3-year-olds, and will comment on stakes entries and results. And, please continue to comment on these horses as much as you want.

Both of our 2-year-old runners were scratched on June 6: Champagne Tommie (Henny Hughes - Champagne Sunset by Gulch) at Churchill Downs and Let's Get Rockin (Rockport Harbor - Impolite by Two Punch) at Woodbine. The Churchill Downs race was won by Ellusive Wildcat (Forest Wildcat - Elusive Air by Elusive Quality), by 4 lengths. I liked the performance of Dreamin Big (Pure Prize - Hush U Dreamer by Roar) in that one, as she closed well to pick up second. Watch the Replay. Hank's Hill (French Envoy - Ticklin' Toni by Smile) won the race at Woodbine, also by 4 lengths. He was aided when several broke badly, but it was still a nice win. Watch the Replay.
