Forego, questions


Godolphin not only has Midshipman and Vineyard Haven prepping for the Derby overseas, but their Desert Party won the Ford Flex  Trophy earlier today in Dubai.  The $2.1M juvenile purchase by Street Cry won the Grade 2 Sanford last year at two for Eoin Harty, and covered the about seven furlongs in 1:24.43.  Regal Ransom, the beaten favorite in the Grade 1 Norfolk at Oak Tree for Kiaran McLaughlin, finished a half-length behind in second.  Both colts are now trained by Saeed by Suroor.  Desert Party hadn't raced since finishing sixth in the Hopeful, and had been sidelined with swelling in his left foreleg...Madeo is reportedly doing well after being pulled up in the San Fernando...Jack's Wild (ankle) will return from the Disabled List in the Sunshine Millions Turf...Mistical Plan (splint) will make her comeback in the Filly and Mare Sprint...Tomcito, a blog favorite last year, recently returned to serious training.  He breezed three furlongs at Palm Meadows on January 18.


Can we get a look at lifetime PP's of Catentius and his daddy Storm Cat?  Trying to see if Notonthesamepage can go 10 furlongs?

Here they are:

An aside for those in NY. Dan will be at the OTB's on 37 St.and also 2nd Ave Sunday afternoon alomg with Peter Rotondo and Jessica Pacheco. I look forward to seeing him on 2nd Ave and hopefully any other bloggers who make it.

Looking forward to seeing any bloggers from the NYC area on Sunday afternoon.  I'll be at "The Winners Circle" (515 Seventh Avenue - 38th Street) between 1:00 -3:00 pm, and will head over to "The Inside Track" (991 Second Avenue - between 52nd-53rd Streets) from 3:30 - 6:00.  Would love to talk to anyone that happens to make it!


Didn't see it anywhere, but any1 kno if the winner was claimed?

The Ramseys and Wesley Ward got away with No Speed Limit as she wasn't claimed out of the HandiGambling race.  Speaking of HandiGambling 117, congrats to Tom for earning the most money.  He gets to pick next week's exercise.

Of course, best of luck to Alan in the NHC tournament!  Take 'em down!


Take care,
