More Honors for Miss Andretti

It’s Horse of the Year time in Australia (after a two-month delay due to equine influenza); not surprisingly, the phenomenal sprinter Miss Andretti gets the title this year. She’s the latest in a line of mares dominating the Aussie turf scene, following Sunline and the great Makybe Diva. Her frequent rival Takeover Target took the Champion International Performer title while Miss Finland and Haradasun took the three-year-old honors. Desert War took the middle distance category while Delta Blues was Champion Stayer.

Miss Andretti also took home the Most Popular Racehorse title, as voted on by the public. Phar Lap was named the inaugural Racing Hall of Fame Legend. Not on to rest on her laurels (quite literally, in this instance), Miss Andretti is gearing up for the International Sprint at Sha Tin.

Heading back stateside but sticking with sprinters, the news is in that Kona Gold will be moving to Kentucky Horse Park. As a Breeders’ Cup Sprint champion and holder of multiple track records, he is perhaps the most accomplished stable pony in the US, but he will soon be heading off to a life of more leisure, joining Cigar and Da Hoss. Not a bad group to pal around with.
