Worth the Wait

Wait a While was certainly impressive over the weekend; I’m not sure she is in the same league with Ouija Board at the moment, but there is every chance she could get there next year. It was also nice to see The Tin Man underline his Arlington Million victory with his Clement Hirsch win as well. I’d say Perfect Drift (and of course Premium Tap) had some bad luck and serious traffic issues in the Kentucky Cup Classic.

Discreet Cat looked his usual dominating self in the Jerome Handicap, but I still don’t agree with his placement in the top ten in the Classic Division; while it’s entirely possible he belongs there, he has yet to prove that in a longer race. Either way, we’ll shortly be seeing his half-brother, Pretty Wild, standing here in PA for a modest sum.

Speaking of half-brothers, George Washington’s was the session-topper at Tattersalls, selling for nearly $2.4 million. Their dam, Bordighera, was certainly a smart investment. It’s good to see some Alysheba grand-foals doing so well; I think he’s always been under-valued as a stallion.

Golden Gate Fields held a memorial for Lost in the Fog; it sounds as though it was a well-planned event with DVDs given out to fans, which is a nice gesture, as is the video posted on their web site.

Things continue to look hopeful for Barbaro; there is a great article here and a message from the Jacksons here. The official word is good too. I’m off to the New Bolton Center tomorrow; should I happen to see him out grazing, I’ll let you know…
