Infanta Branca to Tipperary

  • 1 Comment

News and Notes

I've divided this blog into 2 sections. All the 2-year-old information, works and entries, is listed first, and three year-old results and brief entry lines are at the bottom. I've done this because there is quite a number of 3-year-old results, and I don't want them to overshadow the 2-year-olds.  Infanta Branca (Henrythenavigator), who is scheduled to make her second start at Tipperary, is the only representative of our sires in the 2-year-old races, but I have also previewed two other races, one at Aqueduct and one at Keeneland.
