Nothing earth-shattering here, but i did notice that the two expensive Pletcher firsters (Kimono in Race 3 and Kauai Katie in Race 5) have worked heads-up together in 4 out of their last 5 drills.

Worth mentioning also that all of Kimono's drills have come under a different name, that being I Got This One. Pretty rare that i'll come across that, but when i do, those horses seem to win more than their fair share. Coincidence? Who knows...

Of greater interest is the fact that Kimono appeared to outwork the recent 3-length maiden winner Rose Junction in her July 9 drill. That certainly bodes well for her chances here, though obviously any half-million dollar Pletcher baby figures to get bet through the floor.

The other one, Kauai Katie, actually tied for the fastest furlong (10.0) at the Fasig-Tipton sale, so she's of definite interest here. Especially if Kimono runs well in the 3rd (based on their multiple drills together).

Enjoy the meet, guys...

Thought those two rang a bell somewhere...

Nice call with Carried Interest, John. And congrats on the nice second-place effort by Palace Malice. It was 8 lengths back to Horsepower in third....wow

FYI, Carried Interest worked heads-up with an unraced horse named Go Get The Basil in his final drill coming into this race. Also had worked hedas-up from the gate back on June 7 with an as-yet-unnamed horse out of the dam Ruby Summer.

As mentioned above, Palace Malice's two most recent drills came heads-up with Forever Thing (June 29) and El Duro (June 15).

Do you have a link to that article? I'm having some trouble finding it...

Btw, here's a nice 2yo's-to-watch article from the DRF site:

On Saturday--Race 2
2yo msw 5 1/2
#8 Holden On, 8-1

Real steady work pattern for debut. Chad Brown says he is more than ready to race and his works indicate a real sprinters state of mind. Brown loves the outside draw in this reduced field of 8 race. Ramon should have this firster well positioned turning for home and he should make his presence well known. Eclipse folks are huge on this one! More Bold Ruler in his bloodline than I can count.

Nice run by the firster Kimono, missing by a half-length to the co-favorite Lignite. Looks like Kauai Katie is very live for the 5th.

LOL. I think the official margin was 12 lengths, btw.

Corail is up next. Based on the Double will pays I think EVEN money or 6/5 looks probable. I'm alive in some big pick 3's, really don't want to have to bet a 6/5 shot in a race that loaded, but I will if I have too.

JG This horse goes Saturday in the 4th and Im counting the days. He comes out of that MSW with Spurious Precision and we all know what he did when running back on Sunday. Holden On ran an even race at 10-1 in that MSW race and comes in off of 2 nice workouts since. WOW watch out if this horse is anywhere near 8 or 10-1. Unloading!!!!!!!

Anybody catch my older sister at Del Mar today? We're both undefeated Graded stakes winners. We're both pretty sexy, too (Although, I'm a little young still.)

Spurious Precision died.

Spurious Precision, among the leaders of the 2-year-old division, had to be euthanized Tuesday morning after fracturing a knee during a workout Monday at Aqueduct, trainer Rick Violette said in a press release.

Spurious Precision had just completed a mile workout in 1:43.66 at Aqueduct, but was pulled up by exercise rider Rodney Payne soon after completing the move.

“He went a mile and looked super,” Violette said. “But Rodney felt his stride change as they finished the work, and he pulled him up right away.”

The horse was vanned back to Violette’s barn and then shipped to the Hogan Equine Clinic, where it was initially believed that the injury could be repaired surgically. But, according to Dr. Patty Hogan, Spurious Precision “shattered two major weight-bearing bones of his knee, as well as incurring other smaller fractures of the lesser-supporting bones, thus rendering the knee unstable and unable to support his frame.”

Read this story the other day. Devastating. Looked like a very nice 2yo.
