BATTLE ROYAL
HOW TO ACCESSORIZE
It may have lacked the finesse that marked the finish
of the G1 Prince of Wales=s and G1 St James= Palace,
but the G1 Gold Cup produced one of its most
memorable stretch charges as Leading Light (Ire)
(Montjeu {Ire}) narrowly denied The Queen=s Estimate
(Ire) (Monsun {Ger}) a repeat success in the meeting=s
feature.
Registering a first black-type win in the Mar. 30
G3 Leopardstown 1000 Guineas Trial, Bracelet (Ire)
(Montjeu {Ire}) was among the back numbers in

under an all-out drive once taking over passing the

Leading Light gets his neck in front in G1 Gold Cup
Racing Post
Successful in the G3 Queen=s Vase here last year and
also the G1 St Leger at Doncaster, Leading Light had
advertised his staying credentials further when taking
the G3 Vintage Crop S. on his return at Navan May 18
and employed his seemingly bottomless stamina
reserves to provide trainer Aidan O=Brien with a
remarkable sixth renewal out of the last nine.
Positioned just off the pace early by Joseph O=Brien,
the 10-11 favorite was driven along before the straight
with Ryan Moore looking more comfortable on last
year=s Royal winner just in behind. Holding his line on
Leading Light as Moore tried to switch out at the top of
the stretch, the younger O=Brien drew more from his
mount who, despite veering left and then right when in
front, had just enough left to hold on by a neck, with
just a short head between Estimate and the long-time
leader Missunited (Ire) (Golan {Ire}) in a pulsating finale.
AI kept a straight line all the way up the straight and
Ryan was looking for a bit of room, as he was entitled
to, but I was well entitled to keep what I had,@ Joseph
O=Brien explained. AWhen he got to the front, he had a
little look and just came out for a stride but he=s a big,
laidback horse. He stays well, but I think he=ll be better
over a mile and six. I was rowing away and trying to
hold off giving him a belt for as long as I could. Ryan
helped me, pushing me along a bit on the inside. But

Twelve months ago, Leading Light was becoming the
last to win the Queen=s Vase while it enjoyed Group 3
status, showing the kind of battling qualities that he
was to become famed for in a matter of weeks. Not
short of pace, as he had previously proven when
successful over 10 furlongs in a decent Navan
conditions event and the G3 Gallinule S. at The Curragh
in May, he returned after a summer break to beat the
G1 Oaks winner Talent (GB) (New Approach {Ire}) in
Doncaster=s St Leger before being allowed to take his
chance in the G1 Prix de l=Arc de Triomphe. With Gerald
Mosse on board, he blew the start and never looked
likely to get into contention on the testing ground,
winding up 12th in that Longchamp showcase. But all
the buzz was back as he returned to defy a penalty in
impressive style in the Vintage Crop. Allowed time to
cross over and join the group from his wide draw here,
he was soon perfectly positioned in fourth, with
Estimate covered up down on his inner and Missunited
happy setting the pace under Jim Crowley. That
remained largely the status quo until the approach to
the home turn, where Joseph O=Brien was starting to
row along and his animation was in contrast to the
smoothness of Richard Kingscote up ahead on Brown
Panther (GB) (Shirocco {Ger}) and Ryan Moore on
Estimate. Cont. p4

trip at Windsor Apr.
7. Following up in
the London Gold Cup, which has been used by
connections of the likes of Al Kazeem (GB) (Dubawi
{Ire}), he headed to post with infectious confidence
behind him as one of the day=s best-backed runners.
Settled towards the rear early by Ryan Moore, he had
two behind but was unable to move closer before the
approach to the home turn, with Obliterator (Ire)
(Oratorio {Ire}) laboring ahead. Eased wide at the top of
the straight, he enjoyed a clear run while some ran into
traffic down to his right and, once he had swooped on
the lead with just over a furlong remaining, was never
going to be reeled in. At the line, he had 1 1/2 lengths
to spare over Mutakayyef, with his trainer keen to look
to the future.
AI was a little bit concerned about the ground, as he
wouldn=t want it too quick at this stage,@ Stoute said.
AWe=ve always liked this horse--he=s a quality horse who
will go forward. He was a bit immature last year and
we only got one start into him, but he=s continued to
improve in his work. He=s got a turn of foot and he=s
got class, and I think he=ll get 1 1/2 miles. I would just
keep him off fast, summer ground, and I=m glad they
juiced it up a bit last night because it was necessary. I
think he could be a Group 1 horse in [email protected] Ryan Moore
added, AHe=s done it nicely. He traveled smoothly,
quickened up well and when he got to the front for
some reason he wanted to duck right. It was just
greenness. He=s a nice progressive horse and has only
been beaten on his debut. This is his level for now, but
he=s open to any amount of [email protected]
Sheikh Hamdan=s representative Richard Hills was
pleased with the effort of the runner-up and
commented, AHe=s a long horse to organize and he was
a bit slowly away, so Paul [Hanagan] had to ask him.
He was a bit keen for three-quarters of a furlong, but
apart from that we are really pleased. Whatever he
does this year, he=ll be even better next year. He=s a
stayer who will definitely get 1 1/2 miles, but he just
needs to fill out [email protected]
Luca Cumani said of the third, Postponed, who was a
neck behind Mutakayyef after meeting trouble in
running, AHe ran well, handled the track and handled
the ground. He was a little unlucky in the final furlong,
where he lost momentum, but it was a good run. It=s
difficult to know what to do now, as the 3-year-old
races over 1 1/4 miles are running out, so I will speak

said. AShe doesn=t look like a
filly who has run in two Classics and seems fresh and
well. The Coronation has always been her aim--she had
a complication during the winter and was not supposed
to even make the Guineas. I guess the worry is she
could be exposed to a less-exposed filly who perhaps
missed the Classics, went for something smaller and is
now stepping up in class. Having said that, she=s run

winner Tapestry (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), and they are on
retrieval missions here. The former, who was seventh
at Newmarket, needs to revert to her admirably
consistent 2-year-old form, which also saw her finish
runner-up in the G1 Fillies= Mile at that track in
September. AShe=s all set to go and she=s in very good
form, so we are looking for her to bounce back to her
best,@ trainer Clive Brittain said. AShe couldn=t be in
better health and her work has been good. She was
working well before the Guineas and it surprised us
how she ran there. She=s won twice on fast ground at
Ascot on the straight track and has won going
right-handed at The Curragh, so we=re looking forward
to [email protected] J “TDN Rising Star” J Tapestry, who was
third before being promoted to second behind Rizeena
in the Moyglare in September, was eased up when her
chance had gone in the Guineas. AWe are hoping to put
a line through Newmarket, as we had a couple of
reasons for what happened there,@ jockey Joseph
O=Brien said. AWe haven=t done much with her and have
freshened her up, and she seems to be working nicely
and is in good form.
She handled the track well at Newmarket and going
past the four I was going quite nicely, but she flattened
out very quickly. She=s back in great form, is fresh and
has put on plenty of weight. If she comes back to her
2-year-old form she should be there or [email protected]
Demoted in the Moyglare behind Tapestry was Qatar

previously beaten Sandiva (Ire) (Footstepsinthesand
{GB}) by 3 1/4 lengths in the G3 Albany S. here and
who finished up her juvenile campaign with a third in
the G1 Cheveley Park S. at Newmarket in September.
One who warrants respect despite not holding obvious
form claims is Christopher Tsui=s highly regarded
G3 C L Weld Park S. scorer My Titania (Ire) (Sea the

to training problems and the weather. AShe=s in good
shape, the boss is happy with her and she=s working
well, so we=re looking forward to it,@ jockey Declan

a big plus, and we=ll find out where we stand. It=s a
step up in class for her. She=s won a Group 3 and now

ANOTHER FOR AUSTRALIA?
Today=s G2 King Edward VII S. features the usual mix
of failed Derby contenders taking on fresher rivals, with
Derrick Smith, Susan Magnier and Michael Tabor=s
progressive Adelaide (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) fitting the
former category, which has proved more successful in
recent years. Bypassing the English and French
Classics, the son of the 2007 G2 Queen Mary S.
winner Elletelle (Ire) (Elnadim) followed a second in the
G2 Prix Hocquart over 11 furlongs at Longchamp May
11 with a clear-cut win dropping back a furlong in the
G3 Gallinule S. at The Curragh a fortnight later. Another
without Classic credentials is Godolphin=s Miner=s Lamp
(Shamardal), who took a decent Newmarket handicap
over this trip last time May 17, and he is held in high
regard by Charlie Appleby.

PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE
Wednesday=s G2 Queen Mary S. success of Anthem

watershed moment in the life of Noel O=Callaghan, and
it is more than possible that Patience Alexander (Ire)

Trackside cont.
It is here that I meet Samson and Trojan.
While Samson is an old hat at Royal Ascot, Trojan is
attending for the first time, and standing still is not
quite his thing. When the band strikes up with God
Save The Queen, his head reaches for the skies, while
the quivering, flared nostrils say it all. But, true to his
training and despite his eyes being on stalks, Trojan
stands his ground. It may, of course, have had
something to do with Samson, who, after lifting his
head once to check out the approaching Landaus, went
back to his daydreams.
The job is, however, far from done. For once Her
Majesty departs and the racing ends, revelers and
racegoers take to the High Street to continue the party
and, once again, it is the job of the Thames Valley
police and the likes of Trojan and Samson to ensure
that they do so in an orderly fashion. Finally, the streets
are quiet, Her Majesty is safely in back at Windsor
Castle, and the police, well, they are getting ready to
do it all over again tomorrow! Click here to share this story

Al Shaqab Racing=s Treve (Fr) (Motivator {GB}), third

Al Shaqab, told PA Sport. "She'll be fully checked over
and we'll see if anything comes to light, but obviously
there was something [email protected]
Herbert added: AShe got a bit heated up in the
pre-parade ring and got up on her hind legs a couple of
times and got a bit upset. Whether she tweaked a
muscle doing that, I don't know. Take absolutely
nothing away from the winner, who is also a brilliant
filly and won like a proper star. It's just a great shame,
for whatever reason, we didn't see the real Treve turn
up. Unfortunately, racing isn't that straightforward."
G1 Investec Derby winner Australia (GB) (Galileo
{Ire}) is on target for the G1 Irish Derby at the Curragh
June 28, according to trainer Aidan O=Brien.
"Australia is in terrific form and the Dubai Duty Free
Irish Derby is the plan for him,@ O=Brien said. AHe is a
good ground horse so he would not want testing
conditions, and a final decision
on his participation will be taken
nearer the time."
Should Australia line up in the
Irish Derby, he will look to
complete the Derby double
achieved by his sire in 2001 and
Australia
his stable=s Camelot (GB)
Racing Post
(Montjeu {Ire}) two years ago.
Among those looking to dethrone Australia will likely
be Fascinating Rock (Ire) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) and
Ponfeigh (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}) from the Dermot Weld yard.
While Fascinating Rock was eighth in the Derby,
Ponfeigh was most recently a conditions winner at
Navan June 14.
"The plan is to run Ponfeigh in the Dubai Duty Free
Irish Derby,@ said Weld. AHe is a horse we have always
liked and that is why we have kept him in the race. The
horse had a bit of a setback in April, but he has gotten
over that now. He has had two quick runs, but he
appears to have taken those races well. Ponfeigh has a
terrific turn of foot, and hopefully the step up in trip
won't catch him out. The race is worth a lot of money
and it is great to have a horse good enough to run in

Australia is also likely to reoppose Kingston Hill (GB)
(Mastercraftsman {Ire}), last year=s G1 Racing Post
Trophy winner who ran a brave second in the Derby.

GOOD >GREYCIOUS=
A filly from the final crop of successful sire Indian
Charlie and a half-sister to dual Grade I winner The
Factor (War Front) was hammered down to Bridlewood
Farm General Manager George Isaacs for $500,000 to
top Thursday=s third session of the OBS June TwoYear-Olds and Horses of Racing Age
Sale in Central Florida. It was the
second consecutive year that a
horse crossed the half-million dollar
barrier at the June sale following
the sale of Conquest Top Gun
(Pioneerof the Nile), who sold to
Conquest Stables LLC for $525,000
and has gone on to win this year=s
Marine S. at Woodbine.
The Mar. 20 foal is a daughter of
Greyciousness
(Miswaki), whose
George Isaacs
son The Factor defeated his elders
ftboa.com
in the GI Pat O=Brien S. and added
the GI Malibu S. to close out his 3-year-old season.
Greyciousness was offered with this foal in utero at the
2011 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky November Sale, but was
bought back on a bid of $300,000. Consigned to the
2013 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale by Woods Edge Farm,
the filly was RNA=d when bidding stalled out at
$285,000. Prepared for this sale by Eddie Woods,
agent, hip 756 covered a quarter mile in a fleet :21 1/5
during her under-tack preview.
AShe arguably had one of the top videos of the sale
and she made it into the small group of horses we=d
consider,@ Isaacs commented. AI keyed on her, because
she=s one I wanted to take home. She=s not a shortterm play, we=re going to take her to the races and then
she=ll join our broodmare [email protected]
Isaacs has long been general manager of Bridlewood
and remained in the farm=s employ when it was sold to
billionaire John Malone in 2013. Malone is the chairman
of the Englewood, Colorado-based Liberty Media Co.,
owns roughly 2.1 million acres of land and has a net
worth in excess of $6 billion. He purchased Bridlewood
from the family of Arthur Appleton, who passed away
in 2008 at the age of 92.

AThis purchase was for the new Bridlewood, so we=re
starting from scratch, going horse by horse,@ Isaacs
explained. AWe=re in no hurry. We want to develop a
racing stable with a strong emphasis on fillies. She fit
all the criteria we were looking for--strong physical,
strong pedigree and strong performanceBand it looks
like she has all the ingredients to be [email protected]
He continued, AShe had a lot of quality for an Indian
Charlie, and obviously they=re not making them
anymore. He=s a very established broodmare sire and in
the end, that was one of the reasons we were drawn to
her. She was especially beautiful for an Indian Charlie
because they can be coarse sometimes, but it looks like

Isaacs indicated that their new purchase would return
to Bridlewood before being sent to a yet-to-be
determined trainer.
The day=s second-best price was achieved a little
more than an hour later when hip 798, a New Yorkbred filly by Medaglia d=Oro--Hostess (Chester House)
was knocked down to bloodstock agent Bob Feld on
behalf of Kevin Plank=s
Sagamore Farm for
$260,000. She
worked an eighth of a
mile in an effortless
:10 2/5.
AJust watching her
breeze and watching
her around the barn,
you can tell she is a
really nice filly,@ Feld

commented. AYou get
a nice racing prospect and a nice broodmare prospect,
so it=s really a win/win for us, a dual-purpose purchase,
and we=re really excited to have [email protected]
For Feld, the purchase was also about more
intangible qualities.
AShe kind of has that swagger--every good horse I=ve
been around has that sort of mind and she had it all,@
he offered. AIt=s getting late in the season and a lot of
budgets have been spent and I think we got her for a
very fair [email protected]
Hip 798 was bred by Marlene Brody=s Gallagher=s
Stud, which acquired the filly=s two-time Grade IIIwinning dam for $650,000 at Keeneland November in
2008. The operation consigned the Jan. 30 foal via
Craig and Holly Bandoroff=s Denali Stud to last year=s
Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale, where she fetched
$170,000 from Sarazen & Talus Stable. She was
consigned to the June sale by Niall Brennan Stables,
agent. She hails from the female family of stakes
winner Indianapolis, also by Medaglia d=Oro.
On the session, a total of 196 horses changed hands
for gross receipts of $6,545,900, good for an average
of $33,397 and a median price of $17,000. As there
were only two days of bidding at the 2013 June sale,
there are no comparative statistics. The final day of
selling at OBS begins this morning at 10:30. For full

TRF CELEBRATES 30TH ANNIVERSARY
Edited Press Release
Nearly 100 supporters of the Thoroughbred
Retirement Foundation (TRF), including dignitaries from
New York State, gathered at the TRF=s horse farm on
the grounds of the Wallkill Correctional Facility
June 19. The event marked the 30th anniversary of the
TRF=s Second Chances program--a rehabilitation
initiative designed to teach inmates equine management
while rescuing racehorses. The TRF=s founding board of
directors established the program out of personal
concern for the well-being of retired Thoroughbreds.
One TRF board member, former state Senator Howard
Nolan Jr., conceived the idea to restore the farm at
Wallkill and put inmates to work caring for horses. The
program, now called ASecond Chances,@ in partnership
with the state Department of Corrections and
Community Supervision (DOCCS), has proven to be an
unequivocal success. Currently, the program has
expanded to nine other states.
Farm manager and vocational instructor Jim
Tremper, who has been there since day one, received a
plaque presented by Tom Donahue, Executive Board
Member of the NYS Public Employees Federation.
AThe most remarkable thing I have witnessed during
the last 30 years is the difference it makes in the
inmates who work at the farm, especially those with a
history of violent behavior. It is incredible to see how
working with horses changes the attitudes and
behaviors of these [email protected]
TDN P AROUND THE WORLD • 6/20/14 • PAGE 5 of 9 • thoroughbreddailynews.com
The event featured two graduates of the Second
Chances Program, Steven Emery and Dax Rodriquez.
Diana Pikulski, TRF Vice President of External Affairs,
added, AThis farm is a very special place. It is full
of kindness, compassion and respect. The 30-year
partnership the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation
has enjoyed with DOCCS and the Wallkill Correctional
Facility is a shining example of how people and
institutions can work together long-term for the good of
man and horse and society. We hope it will continue
for, at least, 30 [email protected]

HR/TVG Richard Pell went to $260,000 to secure BOLD BID (Pulpit), a
$195,000 KEESEP yearling, at this year’s OBS March Sale.
The son of SW and GSP turf router My Magic Moment (Forest
Wildcat) breezed in :10 1/5 in Ocala, and will be saddled here
by solid debut conditioner Peter Miller. Al and Sandee
Kirkwood’s Red Button (Distorted Humor) also went for
$260,000, bringing that amount as a Keeneland September
yearling. The Mark Glatt pupil is out of juvenile debut winner
Skipping Around (Skip Trial), who took Philadelphia Park’s
GII Cotillion S. as a sophomore in 1999. Skipping Around is
already responsible for 2007 GI Santa Maria H. heroine Sugar
Shake (Awesome Again). Glatt, who also saddles Masters
Circle (Stormy Atlantic), is just one-for-41 with juvenile
firsters over the past five seasons, according to DRF
Formulator. Dan Hendricks unveiled the buzzed-about Story to
Tell (Bluegrass Cat) almost exactly a month ago, and he’ll
send out another Barretts March graduate in the Sareen
Family Trust’s Om (Munnings). The $60,000 KEESEP
yearling brought double that price plus another five grand
following a :10 2/5 move under tack. Reddam Racing’s Bad

Warrior’s Reward. A $130,000 KEESEP yearling, the Doug
O’Neill pupil RNA’d for $340,000 at Keeneland April after a

Elite Army powered home in a one-mile Kempton
maiden on racecourse bow Nov. 11, but could manage
only third in a Sandown handicap over 10 furlongs on
sophomore return Apr. 25. He looked more like an
Ascot contender with a ready score in a similar event
back at the Esher track last time May 22, and raced
keenly behind the leaders when dropped in from his
wide berth here. Looking for room on the fence as the
field straightened for home, the bay found daylight with
1 1/2 furlongs to race and stayed on strongly to collar
fellow joint-favorite Windshear 75 yards from the line.
