Clear Sailing to Bristol


News and Notes

Paging Penelopy (Rockport Harbor - Liberada by Spend a Buck) was scratched from the third at Delaware Park. The winner was Sweet Edie (Eddington - Flying Lauren by Storm Bird) by 8 3/4 lengths. Watch the Replay.

Also scratched was Flodden (Henny Hughes - Dundrummin' by Gone West), scheduled to run at Goodwood. The winner of that contest was Indigo Way (GB) (Encosta de Lago (AUS) - Artistic Blue by Diesis (GB)).

Two-Year-Old Result

Clear Sailing to Bristol

There were no scratches, as 9 (including 2 entries) ran on the fast track. Golden Wyatt (Touch Gold - Number One Girl by Tiznow) was favored by a tick over the entry of Bristol Harbour (Rockport Harbor - Anclote by Twining) and Y Not Tony (Tomorrows Cat - Unknown Fact by Known Fact). Filly Prizical (Desert Warrior - Bed Pro by Polish Pro) was also respected at the windows. Bristal Harbour made a decent appearance on the track, looking ready for action. But, at the load, he acted like he had never seen a starting gate before. Golden Wyatt was restless in the gate, and then broke very awkwardly. Also off slowly was Another Senor (Anasheed - Am Senorita by Miswaki). Prizical went to the front, and Y Not Tony and Bristol Harbour took after her. Prizical spurted away from the boys, but she was going wide. Bristol Harbour was moved outside for the drive, and slowly, but surely, overtook Prizical. The margin of victory was only 1 1/4 lengths, but he looked strong finishing. Prizical held second, well-clear of Y Not Tony, who had some lengths on the rest of them. Interestingly, the two that had trouble at the start, Another Senor and Golden Wyatt, finished a nose apart in 4th and 5th. Bristol Harbour is winner number 6 for Rockport Harbor.

Jason, I saw on the Thoroughbred Times stallion page for Bernardini that his son, Regal Falcon, finished 2nd in a MSW and has earned over $33,00.00. I can't find any record of a Regal Falcon running here and I don't think he's in Japan because there was no JPN next to his name. Then again, if he's earned $33,000.00 as a maiden, maybe he is in Japan - he sure can't be in the US.

Have you heard of this guy?

Oops, nevermind.........I did some digging and he did finish 2nd of 13 in a race in Japan. Nice effort...........Bernardini is doing well in Europe and Japan, which is great.

Betsy -

Thank you for your comment.

First of all, as I have explained before, Jason Shandler has nothing to do with this blog. If you have a question for Jason, please address him at his blog:

Secondly, Regal Falcon is an American-bred son of Bernardini, who finished second in a maiden race in Japan on Sept. 5, earning the $33,169 you quoted above. (JPN) or any other country in parenthesis refers to the country where the horse was bred, not where they race. Regal Falcon was bred in Kentucky and was purchased for $360,000 at the Keeneland Sept Yearling sale last year.

For convenience and my sanity, this blog is North American-centered with a smattering of Europe thrown in. However, feel free to comment on Bernardinis in other locations.

Sorry about that; I did not know that Jason has nothing to do with this blog.

Thanks for the info on Regal Falcon.....

I'm looking forward to Saturday at Belmont as  Eltheeb and Arthur's Tale, both by Bernardini, are entered in a MSW at 1 mile.
