Apologies for the lack of updates over the holidays – things will be back to normal starting next week. While Indian Blessing’s win in the La Brea was necessarily subdued in light of Indyanne’s injury (which, so far, looks as though it will not require surgery – ones hopes that is an encouraging sign), she does have an interesting campaign in the works.

Trainer Bob Baffert is pointing the filly to the Dubai Golden Shaheen; the race is already shaping up as one with a very interesting cast (and that’s just including the American contingent). Fabulous Strike, also victorious over the weekend in the Gravesend Handicap, looks to figure in the race and erstwhile Derby contender Gayego was recently purchased with a view toward running in Dubai.

Malibu winner Bob Black Jack is also aiming for the Golden Shaheen if all goes well – it seems everybody’s doing it.

While it’s a long way until March, it’s certainly something to look forward to – I have no strong feelings thus far about those two-year-olds turning three on Thursday…
