    • 2nd-Del Mar, $70,500, Msw, 7-31, 2yo, f, 5f, :58.67, ft, 3/4 length. GRACE ADLER (f, 2, Curlin–Our Khrysty {GSW, $313,260}, by Newfoundland), sent off the 2-5 choice for this unveiling, broke outward for the six hole, but rallied into contention before settling into fourth as Sugar Sugar (Twirling Candy) led through a :22.80 half. Asked for more by Flavien Prat and giving it passing the quarter pole, the chestnut was the widest of three with Valentina Ghada (Practical Joke) and Sugar Sugar turning for home, ground to the front in the final sixteenth and got the best of Valentina Ghada by 3/4 of a length at the wire. The winner is out of a half-sister to GISW Bullsbay (Tiznow), who is also responsible for GSP Virginia key (Distorted Humor), an unraced 3-year-old colt by Malibu Moon named American Smooth and a yearling colt by Into Mischief. This season, she foaled a filly by Uncle Mo and was bred back to War Front. Sales history: $700,000 Ylg '20 FTKSEL. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $42,000.

    • The TAB got a bail-out, which [ in theory ] helped all codes.  As far as the AWT funding goes however, yes, you are right. But Winston's supporters were, as far as the racing industry was concerned,  the high-end thoroughbred breeders/trainers from the Waikato.  Harness and dogs don't figure on their radar.  
    • Departing the outside post in a field of five for the $600,000 Jim Dandy Stakes (G2) at Saratoga Race Course, Essential Quality raced outside rivals throughout and made his move while swinging wide off the turn for home under regular rider Luis Saez. View the full article
    • Champion and 'TDN Rising Star' Essential Quality (c, 3, Tapit–Delightful Quality, by Elusive Quality) covered all the ground and outbattled a game Keepmeinmind (Laoban) for a narrow victory in Saturday's GII Jim Dandy S. at Saratoga. Masqueparade (Upstart) was third. The 2-5 favorite, drawn widest of all in post five, was four wide and kept in the clear down the backstretch in fourth. The last out GI Belmont S. hero began to dial it up while four wide on the far turn and made his bid for the lead parked out even further at the top of the stretch. Keepmeinmind, meanwhile, saved all the ground and enjoyed the run of the race with a rail rally in the stretch. Those two locked up leaving the sixteenth pole and Essential Quality grinded his way to a neck decision. Lifetime Record: 8-7-0-0. O/B-Godolphin (Ky); T-Brad Cox.
