    Hills got a market for derby and am on DESERT ISLAND a horse by Australia also Peeping Fawn horse had a mention 6months ago to been talked about a bit when 1m maidens happen one to keep eye on.Godzilla other horse in market with Sydney Oprea House that horse related to Reklinding so more of a stayer

    South pacific out soon, hopefully one to keep an eye on, by galileo out of a linamix mare

    Surely a better place for this thread.

    Sad that there is no interest in the young horses. Probably not helping that it is dumped into the depths of the forum. It’s hardly as if the main areas are “Hoachin'” with busy threads.

    South Pacific made his debut at Tipperary this evening but made little impact, 4th of five runners behind winner Cape Of Good Hope. He was very green but the winner won pretty comfortably and was coming in rated 71 after two previous runs, so it looks a limited bit of form at the moment.

    Just a couple to mention to try to keep the thread alive:-

    PEACH TREE (Galileo-Pikaboo)

    Only fifth on debut, as it took ages for the penny to drop. Typical Galileo filly for O’Brien coming on a ton from 1st run and made pretty much all to win next time, kicking away from the front and looking like winning it by a fair way, before the second filly finished well to narrow the gap to half a length.

    Peach Tree looks to be a fair bit short of the finished article and didn’t look fully tuned on her second start. She seems likely to fill out with time and I like the way she moves, with a light, flowing action that should allow her to float along on a sound surface.

    Peach Tree is a full sister to Flattering, the 3YO filly fancied by some for decent races at 3YO this season and she is a half sister to George Margason’s Lucky Kristale, who won the old Cherry Hinton at 2YO and followed up in Lowther at York. Lucky Kristale seemed to lose her way when tried at a mile as a 3YO but Peach Tree should get a mile, having won a 7F already and being by Galileo.

    Entered in the Moyglare, perhaps Peach Tree may come forward more than some of the Ballydoyle fillies by September. The worry might be how she will handle any cut. On Racing Post figures she improved 25 lbs from run 1 to run 2 and a couple of firms have her in the 1000 Guineas betting. The trainer said she will stick to fillies races and stated he was delighted how much she had come forward from her first start, adding that she would stay a mile.

    U S S MICHIGAN (War Front-Photograph)

    The other one to catch my eye on Irish Derby week was the War Front colt U S S Michigan who was less fancied than warm favourite Mount Tabora for the Coolmore moguls. I was not as impressed with the Scat Daddy colt as I was with U S S Michigan in terms of physique but the latter could have been expected to need more time given the way he ran.

    U S S Michigan is a big colt who is all legs and he was really green in the early stages of the race. Seemingly having little clue as to how to best get optimum speed from his big frame, I felt he might fall into a hole in the closing stages but he kept on well and I thought he might win it. The second favourite for the race, Bated Breath filly Viadera, trained by Ger Lyons, finished really well though, to pass the opposition and win the race, leaving U S S Michigan in second place, beaten half a length with favourite Mount Tabora in 5th place.

    I felt U S S Michigan had run a cracking race, given his physique and inexperience, a big P for improvement looks assured to my eyes anyway. Given how long it took fellow War Front son US Navy Flag to find his way into the winners enclosure it looked an excellent starting effort from U S S Michigan and he earned a RPR of 88 in conceding 5 lbs to the filly.

    U S S Michigan’s breeding is a bit unusual, in that the Dam has only ever been bred with War Front thus far and U S S Michigan is the 4th of that combination of parents. Perhaps some will recall full brother George Patton, who made a good start for Jean-Claude Rouget and was once rumoured to be the best 3YO in the yard. Narrowly beaten by Zarak in the trial for the French Guineas he was then 4th in the Group 1 race itself behind runaway winner The Gurkha. He suffered a few setbacks and ended up in Australia.

    The other three full siblings all started out with Jean-Claude Rouget and it will be interesting to see how U S S Michigan (Named after a nuclear submarine) comes forward for O’Brien. Normal improvement would see him hit three figures on his next start and be looking to step up into pattern company 3rd time out.

    Entered in the Phoenix and National Stakes, those Group 1 races may prove beyond him but he looks sure to progress well from his 1st start.

    Two tomorrow of reasonable interest pedigree wise:

    King Of Comedy

    Kingman looking a very decent sire, early days, but so far so good. His mother produced Star Of Seville (lovely mare and a G1 winner) + English Ballet (mare placed in G1) to name a few..Trained by John Gosden, i am excited for his debut tomorrow at Sandown 3.00

    Jabalaly

    Moohaajim still awaiting his first win, however, this guy is related to some decent horses;Tabarrak (7f-1m inc at 2/Listed; RPR 115), The Wagon Wheel (5f-6f inc at 2; 102) and Dubai Acclaim (6f AW; 77); dam 6f 2yo winner (stayed 1m; 99), half-sister to useful 6f-7f winner Zero Money. He could well be ready first time out but, either way i will be interested to see what he does tomorrow.

    Welcome back Steve :good:

    I was actually quite happy with south pacifics run steve, very raw and plugged on, but its obv too early to tell.

    The godolphin runner today, line of duty caught my eye, should have won, is he there first galileo runner? Could be one to keep onside, would be funny if he turned out decent for godolphin.

    King Of Comedy

    Green as grass but hosed up here:-

    http://www.thoroughbreddailynews.com/race-replays/3/82099/

    Looked at least as exciting as Calyx and was flying away from them at the end.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    The Kingman’s do catch the eye. This one in the same colours as Legends of War and all three being with Gosden. If they all stay sound and improve nicely, it’s a long way off and plenty of water to pass under the bridge but I wonder how many turn up in the Guineas.

    Is this site hacked?

    Looks like Pharmacy pages are coming up in place of the categories you would expect and the preview for areas of the site thrown up by Google Search is showing the contents in the various areas of the site as items for sale from the same pharmacy.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    Like Steve said this Thread is completely lost here and I completely forgot to post up two lovely 2yo fillies that I saw at Newmarket last week.

    ROYAL INTERVENTION
    Trained by Ed Walker was an all the way winner of the Class 1 Listed Betway Empress Fillies Stakes, ridden by Gerald Mosse, she is a beautiful long striding filly daughter of Exceed and Excel and Exciting Times and she really took the eye in the paddock. Owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Lady Lloyd Webber I will definitely be following her progress through the season.

    The second filly STRINGS OF LIFE (Slade Power/Nashama(Pivotal))
    trained by Charlie Appleby was running on well in he final furlong but was never going to catch the winner who was 4 and a half lengths up at the Post.

    A really tough race to call the winner before the off as the betting showewd and even the 3rd filly IMPULSION will win when the ground gets a bit softer as she has a very high knee action and ran a good race on ground that she definitely did not favour.

    Please could we ask VTC or Matron to move this Thread to Horse Racing :yes: Jac

    I’ll only be posting on this thread on occasion Jack and only then until I can be confirmed as a Cat fosterer. It’s estimated that it takes 30 hours a week to do all the associated work in preparing strays for new permanent homes.

    Anyway. When I do a search for “The Racing Forum” on Google, a pharmacy comes at the top of the search results and sub-headings under “The Racing Forum” heading in the search result page show headlines for Valium, Viagra etc

    It’s almost like getting Roaring Lion on one page and Roaring Hard On next to it.

    I saw Jean-Claude Rouget’s Invincible Spirit filly Spirit Of Brittany was out at Clairefontaine today. Having won on her first start, she was a short favourite for the relatively low key affair. Tucked in behind over the 7F trip she was patiently and confidently ridden, coming through easily to take it up and cosily come away to win 2 lengths in what was no more than a piece of work on the gallops visually.

    Spirit Of Brittany looks ready to step up into better company now.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.
