Quick Hits

Time is short today, so we are limited to a few brief bullet points:

Lava Man back in training – the ‘Behind the Music‘ version is very informative.

Zenyatta to possibly run a few times next year – hey, that would be half her season this year already! How about Keeneland instead of Santa Anita? It would be a Good Thing, in any instance.

Cryptoclearance dead – another stud dies, this one very much under-rated.

Human racing – with the Thoroughbred Brief in Kentucky, or me in Delaware. She’s got Secretariat, but I have beer. Or you could just cheer for both of us.

Anglo-Saxon hoard from Staffordshire – this is entirely relevant, as there are plenty of items with horse motifs in said hoard. This is bigger than Sutton Hoo, folks – it’s another chance to try to figure out how many things Bede was just making up about the kings of Mercia (and Anglo-Saxon kingship as a whole).

Indian Blessing takes on Sara Louise in the Gallant Bloom – will both be going to the Filly & Mare Sprint? So far, Sara Louise is proving to be more than just the answer to a trivia question.

Ballydoyle Watch – Rip Van Winkle is almost certain for the Breeders’ Cup Classic (feet permitting), but Yeats will likely bow out in France.

Rachel Alexandra – now accepting fan mail. And why not?
