   Dropping back in trip here after a latest third in the

G1 Grand Prix de Paris over 12 furlongs at Longchamp

July 14, Saint Baudolino duly swamped his rivals with a

smart spell of acceleration and lad home a one-two for

his owner and trainer in the process. After his prior

pattern-race success in the G3 Prix de Guiche over nine

furlongs at Chantilly May 11, the bay was runner-up in

the blanket finish to the G1 Prix du Jockey Club over 

1 5/16 miles at Chantilly June 3 before his Bastille Day

outing. Restrained in fifth early by Maxime Guyon as

the British raider Rewarded (GB) (Motivator {GB}) took

the field along, he was full of run in early stretch with

his jockey confidently poised as another Brit Starboard

(GB) (Zamindar) dueled with the long-time leader up

front. Swooping on that duo approaching the furlong

marker, the homebred rolled clear for an emphatic score

from his Prix Jean Prat-winning stable companion 

G1 Aesop

   After scoring on debut over nine furlongs at Vire 

May 17, Sarkiyla added a 10-furlong conditions event

to her tally at Le Lion d

third over that trip at Maisons-Laffitte June 27.

de Bagatelle when dropped back to a mile last time 

July 27, the Aga Khan homebred continued her

progression here to add more strength in depth to her


=s ranks. Settled in mid-pack early by

Christophe Lemaire, the bay was asked to extend inside

the final quarter and after grabbing the lead with 150

meters remaining held on from the strong-closing

Foreign Tune. 

AShe is a lovely filly and the only time she

has been beaten, the distance was too far for her,


trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre commented. 

AHorses with

a turn of foot love it here in Deauville and she had a

very good run through. We

=ll see what comes along for

her, maybe the G2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein [at

Longchamp Oct. 6] or a race abroad.

How to pick a winner: Horse racing's 'speed gene' test

“Spotting the ‘next big thing’ in sport is an expensive business. Millions of

dollars and countless hours are spent on talent identification, but it's an

unpredictable science.  Callum Tennent, CNN

After 10 long years, woman reunited with her stolen horse

“Nearly 10 years ago, Michelle Pool, 40, of Eureka Springs, Ark., stood

staring at a clipped and gaping fence. Her beloved horse, Opie, had been

stolen from her father’s pasture in San Antonio, Texas.”

“A plan to send thoroughbred horses from Ireland to China as part of a

Acclamation Injured, Likely Out of Pacific Classic...

   Reigning Eclipse Award-winning older male

Acclamation (Unusual Heat) will likely not defend his

title in the GI TVG Pacific Classic after emerging from a

Monday gallop with slight swelling in the area of the

Sutherland Cleared For Classic Ride...

   Chantal Sutherland, who incurred a four-day

suspension for a whip infraction while participating in

the Shergar Cup in Britain last weekend, will be allowed

to push back the start date from Aug. 26 to Aug. 29,

therefore allowing her to partner Game On Dude

(Awesome Again) in the Pacific Classic. The four days

were set to begin Aug. 25, but Sutherland

=s agent

Tommy Ball filed a request with the British Horseracing

Authority earlier this week, asking permission to defer

the start date. Del Mar stewards received a fax

Wednesday from the BHA granting the stay.

Atlantic Jewel Sidelined...

   Unbeaten Atlantic Jewel (Aus) (Fastnet Rock {Aus})

has sustained an injury that will keep her out of action

for the next few months. The newly turned 4-year-old

came back from a gallop Tuesday showing signs of

lameness, and a scan revealed an injury to a lateral

branch of super flexor tendon extending to the end

region of the pastern. She had been the ante-post

favorite for the A$3-million G1 Cox Plate Oct. 27. 


will continue to assess the injury and it would be my

opinion at this stage that she will be unable to resume

full training for eight weeks,

Camelot (GB) (Montjeu {Ire}) will be taken to

Leopardstown today for a public gallop during racing as

he is prepared for his Triple Crown bid. Aidan O


revealed that the G1 2000 Guineas and G1 English and

Murtagh Misses Ebor Festival...

   Johnny Murtagh faces a short spell on the sidelines

as a result of the injury he suffered at The Curragh on

Sunday. Kicked by his mount Lottie Dod (Ire) (Invincible

Spirit {Ire}) before the start of the G1 Phoenix S., he

was found to have sustained a hairline fracture to a

small bone under his eye, and will be out of action for

at least three weeks.

Kayf Tara (GB) (Sadler

according to Racing Post. Herself a half-sister to Bella

Colora (GB) (Bellypha {Ire}) and Cezanne (GB) (Ajdal),

she proved her ability on the track as well as the

breeding shed, winning the 1986 G1 Irish Oaks. The

29-year-old had been retired from duty after producing

Justification (GB) (Montjeu {Ire}), subsequently her

seventh individual winner from 16 foals, in 2008. 


death of Colorspin is a great shame, but I am happy

that she had a good retirement,

@ Meon Valley Stud=s

Mark Weinfeld told the trade daily. 

AShe leaves an

outstanding legacy and we have lots more to look

forward to with Zee Zee Top and her daughter Izzi Top.

Her son Kayf Tara has established himself as a leading

National Hunt sire and Opera House has also been a

success at stud. She will be sorely missed.

We have given our two TDN crack handicappers, Brian DiDonato and Steve

Sherack, a mythical $1000 bankroll and told them they can bet no more than 5%

of that on any given day at Saratoga on a straight win bet. The winner, at the

end of the meet, gets $100 in a TVG betting account, along with bragging rights

until next July. 

DiDonato: Wednesday - Curve Ball (7-1) looked like the winner of the

third at the top of the lane, but just didn't seem to want to go by and

settled for a close third. 

Thursday - Race 6 - Mdn 50000, (S), 2yo, 6f - #6 No Nukes (6-1)

   No Nukes made a very good physical impression before his maiden

special weight unveiling here July 29, but he just never looked

comfortable in the slightly muddy going (


). He started climbing and

spinning his wheels after showing a bit of early interest, and I think he

deserves another chance over what will hopefully be a dry surface. The   

dark bay was a $4,500 FTKOCT yearling RNA, but brought $35,000

after breezing a decent-looking 

:10 3/5

 at Fasig-Tipton Midlantic. It

seems likely that there’s more talent there than he showed on debut,

and the drop in class can’t hurt--considering No Nukes’s purchase price

and these purses, it definitely isn’t a white flag type move. Play: $20

Win. Alternate: Race 3 - $20 Win on #7 Gombey Dancer.    

Sherack: Wednesday - Much to my liking, She Be Bunny was ridden

aggressively by Rosario and enjoyed a clear lead through fractions of

:23.50 and :47.80, but had nothing left in the stretch and folded to finish

a disappointing seventh. 

Thursday - Race 11 - Msw, (S), 3yo/up, f/m, 1mT - #7 Jennys Creek


   Taking a swing on a horse that I added to my rapidly growing stable

mail watch (149 horses strong at the moment) following her turf bow at

the Spa July 28. Completely ignored at 67-1 going 5 1/2 furlongs versus

a similar bunch that day, Jennys Creek stumbled at the start and

quickly lost valuable positioning over a course playing extremely kind to

front runners. She began to make a decent middle move from ninth into

a sharp :22 1/5 opening quarter while riding the rails on the turn for

home, but couldn’t keep the momentum rolling once angled out for her

run. While she failed to gain any ground on the top three--including the

very sharp wire-to-wire winner Subtle--she did have 3 1/2 lengths on the

fifth-place finisher to her credit. Jennys Creek has every right to move

forward with that one under her belt, and the stretch to a mile should

help the cause as well. It’s been an unusually quiet season for the very

capable Carlos Martin barn, but his horses have been performing pretty

decent at this meeting so far (13-1-5-0). Wouldn’t be surprised at all if

Jennys Creek steps up and sneaks into the mix at a huge price over a

course playing a lot more even now following last weekend’s heavy rain.

Play: $14 Win (Turf Only). Alternate: Race 8: $25 Win on #2 Dan and

 The office of New

York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli has released

an audit of the administration of the state

=s video

lottery terminal revenues. The purpose of the audit,

which covered the period Apr. 1, 2008 to Mar. 31,

2012, was to determine whether VLT revenues were

Aadequately controlled, accurately reported, used only

for their intended purposes, and have improved

racetrack attendance and handle.

@ While those first

three points were found to be in compliance, the audit


Awe are unable to determine whether the VLT

revenues used to enhance racetrack purses have aided

racetrack attendance and handle.

@ The New York

Thoroughbred Horsemen

=s Association=s President Rick

Violette Jr. and New York Thoroughbred Breeders


Executive Director Jeffrey Cannizzo issued a joint

statement in response. 

AState Comptroller Thomas


=s recent audit paints a false and misleading

picture of Thoroughbred racing in New York,

@ the

statement read. 

AThe fact is, despite a national

economy still immersed in a significant downturn and a

national trend that saw handle drop 7% last month,

business is booming for New York Thoroughbred

racing, and to paint any other picture is disingenuous.

In 2012, all three of the New York Racing Association

meets have seen significant increases in wagering. At

Aqueduct, total handle was up 22.6% from the

previous year. Belmont's handle increased 13.4%

on-track, with total handle up 9.1%. Saratoga's total

handle is up 6.5% midway through the meet. That only

tells a fraction of the story. After a four-year decline,

there was a 39.4% increase in Thoroughbred foals

reported in New York through May 2012, and every

one of those foals creates jobs.

Fundraiser Nets Over $100K for Rivera Foundation:

   The Aug. 9 fundraiser at Siro

time Major League Baseball All-Star Mariano Rivera

raised in excess of six figures to support the Mariano

Rivera Foundation. That total was raised by a $500 per-

plate event and live auction. Each attendee at the event

received a signed baseball and a photograph taken with

the future Hall of Famer. 

AI would like to thank Saratoga

Springs for its tremendous support,

@ Rivera said. AIn

particular, I would like to thank Mayor Scott Johnson,

the management of Siro

and the residents of this wonderful community for

providing such a warm welcome on my first visit to the
