Spectacular Times Two

No matter what kind of day you had, make it better by watching the replays of Winter Memories winning the Gr. 2 Lake George at Saratoga, and Frankel winning the Sussex at Goodwood.

It simple does not get any better than this.

Despite trouble at the top of the stretch, the gray filly by El Prado out of Memories of Silver, exploded at the top of the stretch, to romp by 4 & ½. She now has 5 of 6 lifetime wins and it looks like the sky’s the limit for this filly. She has a breathtaking turn of foot, and I don’t think we have seen the best of her yet. Plans are for her to run in the Lake Placid on August 21, with an eye to the Queen Elizabeth at Keeneland in the fall.
Across the pond, the sensational Frankel, went to the front and never looked back in the Sussex Stakes. The colt by Galileo, and named after the late Hall of Famer Bobby Frankel, defeated a short field that included Canford Cliffs, who recently beat the champion mare Goldikova. Frankel is being hailed as one of the best milers Europe has ever seen. Unfortunately, there is no plan to bring Frankel to the Breeder’s Cup this year.

 Watch it here.

  1. Two of the best turf runners in the world hands down. I could watch those replays over and over and never get tired of watching.
    Winter Memories showed incredible acceleration!
