  15. Sharp Sumurai (First Samurai) looks to kick off his 2019 season with a win in Monday’s GI Shoemaker Mile at Santa Anita. During his sophomore season, the bay won a trio of graded stakes, including Santa Anita’s nine-furlong Twilight Derby before rounding out the year with a fourth in the GI Hollywood Derby. Returning with a score in a Santa Anita optional claimer last June, the gelding was a neck behind winner Catapult (Kitten’s Joy) in Del Mar’s GII Eddie Read S. over 1 1/8 miles in July before crossing the wire third, and was later promoted to second via DQ, in the GII Del Mar Mile H. in August. Most recently, Sharp Samurai came from just off the space to nab a nose victory in Santa Anita’s GII City of Hope Mile S. Oct. 6. Catapult, a two-time Grade II winner in 2018, was narrowly bested by Ohio (Elusive Quality) in his most recent start in the GI Frank E. Kilroe Mile S. at Santa Anita Mar. 30. A close-up second in last fall’s GI Breeders’ Cup Mile at Churchill Downs, Catapult launched this term with a fourth in the inaugural $7,000,000 GI Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational S. at Gulfstream Jan. 26. Also exiting Gulfstream’s Pegasus, Delta Prince (Street Cry {Ire}), who finished third, returned to register an impressive victory in Keeneland’s GI Maker’s 46 Mark Mile S. Apr. 12.

  16. Racing has lost one of its most enthusiastic as well as one of its most successful patrons with the passing of Paul Makin at the age of 82. Australian-born Makin first made his mark on the sport in the closing decades of the 20th century as a punter, focusing his formidable intellect and computer skills, allied to his first-class judgement of both horses and races, on the colossal Tote pools in Hong Kong (and to a lesser extent in Japan) to amass a fortune. He was thus able to invest in the bloodstock market and again he hit the jackpot, unearthing a stream of special horses and enjoying top-level success as both owner and breeder. The horse with whom Makin will be forever associated is the mighty Starcraft (NZ) (Soviet Star), whom he bought as a yearling in New Zealand for $NZ 80,000 before master-minding an adventurous career which made the magnificent chestnut a champion in both hemispheres. Trained on the Gold Coast by Gary Newham, Starcraft proved himself the champion 3-year-old Of Australia in 2004 thanks to his excellent victory in the G1 Australian Derby at Randwick and his weight-for-age triumph in the G1 Chipping Norton S. at Warwick Farm. A weight-for-age Group 1 winner in New Zealand the following spring, Starcraft was then sent to Europe early in 2005. Trained there by Luca Cumani, he established himself as World Champion Older Turf Miler thanks to his wins in the G1 Prix du Moulin du Longchamp and G1 Queen Elizabeth S. at Newmarket. Starcraft subsequently established himself as a successful stallion at Arrowlield. The other superstar to race in Makin’s red, white and blue silks was Chicquita (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}). The headstrong and sometimes wayward filly got her 3-year-old campaign off to a bad start in 2013 when veering off-course through a hedge and falling when seemingly set for victory in a conditions race at Saint-Cloud. Undaunted, Makin and her trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre stuck to their plan of running her in the G1 Prix de Diane, in which she belied her long odds to finish second to Treve (Fr) (Motivator {GB}). The following month Chicquita provided a rare example of a maiden winning a Classic when strolling home in the G1 Irish Oaks. At the end of that year, Makin’s colourful career in the sport took another turn when he offered his entire collection of racing and breeding stock in an unreserved dispersal at the Goffs November Sale. Makin had been accumulating a band of high-class broodmares including Authorized’s dam Funsie (Fr) (Saumarez {GB}) and 2009 G1 July Cup heroine Fleeting Spirit (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}). The Paulyn Stud dispersal ranked as one of the notable events in modern bloodstock history, with Chicquita topping the bill at €6-million. Needless to say, Makin’s decision to retire from the game did not prove irreversible. A racing man to his boots, he could not resist the call of the turf and before long he was picking up the occasional tempting prospect including the impeccably bred La Figlia (Ire), a member of Frankel’s first crop out of dual Guineas heroine Finsceal Beo (Ire) (Mr Greeley) whom he bought for €1.8-million as a foal at Goffs in 2015. Another horse whom he raced at the time was his homebred Sky Kingdom (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}), who had been retained when the rest of the horses were sold. The son of the top-class Makin-bred Starcraft mare We Can Say It Now (Aus) (a dual Group 1 winner for Makin in New Zealand in 2010), Sky Kingdom won the Wood Ditton S. at Newmarket in 2016 and was subsequently send down to Australia, where his ever-loyal owner persuaded Gary Newham to come out of retirement to train him. Another horse whom he bred from We Can Say It Now was the winning Galileo filly Tranquil Star (Ire), who provided another reminder of Makin’s love of racing heritage: she and Chicquita both share names with champions Australian racemares of yesteryear. One of Makin’s final projects was promoting 2015 G1 Racing Post Trophy winner Marcel (Ire) (Lawman {Fr}) as a stallion. On the horse’s retirement to the National Stud in 2017, Makin explained his motivation for the project: “I’m an old guy and I tried to retire when I was 75 and now I’m five years older than that and I’m thinking to myself that I’m glad that I didn’t retire as I nearly experienced depression. The legs might be weak but it’s important to work harder as you get older and to keep your brain active.” A colourful character whose love of the racing game shone brightly throughout his life, Makin kept his brain active to the end, adding plenty to the sport in which he enjoyed so much success.

  20. 1.50 The Curragh, Mdn, €20,000, 2yo, 6fT KING OF ATHENS (War Front) is the first foal out of the G1 Fillies’ Mile winner Together Forever (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) whose full-sister Forever Together (Ire) captured last year’s G1 Epsom Oaks. With Ryan Moore on the course-and-distance runner-up Arizona (Ire) (No Nay Never), Donnacha O’Brien rides over a third stable representative in New World Tapestry (War Front), another first foal this time out of the G1 Yorkshire Oaks heroine Tapestry (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}).

  21. Sunday’s feast features four Group 1 races in Ireland and France and a Classic in Germany, but it is the G1 Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas which dominates as Hermosa (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) bids to add to her May 5 G1 1000 Guineas success. Surprisingly as big as 14-1 when accounting for four of these rivals in the Newmarket Classic given that she had already accomplished much at two, the May foal did it the “Galileo way” there as she proved hard as nails from the front. Successful in the G3 Weld Park S. at Naas in September and runner-up in both Newmarket’s G1 Fillies’ Mile and G1 Criterium International over seven at Chantilly the following month, she was perhaps overpriced for her return due to the exposure she had in 2018 rather than due to level of ability. Ryan Moore has not enjoyed the best of fortune in picking the right Ballydoyle ride in Classics in recent times, but his decisions in these situations are not enviable ones given the depth of talent in the yard. It may be that he has chosen wrong again, with the ‘TDN Rising Star’ Just Wonderful (Dansili {GB}) showing up well at the end of the Guineas in sixth. Already a winner over this course and distance in the G3 Flame of Tara S. in September, she needs a patient ride and if things fall right has a finishing kick several of these rivals are lacking. “We were delighted with Hermosa in Newmarket and she has been well since,” Aidan O’Brien said. “Just Wonderful was a little away from the pace at Newmarket, but came home very well.” Third in the Newmarket Guineas having won that track’s G3 Nell Gwyn S. on Apr. 16, Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Thani’s Qabala (Scat Daddy) has every entitlement to try again with Roger Varian hopeful that she can turn form around with Hermosa as a filly still in the learning stage. “She hasn’t missed a beat since the English Guineas,” he said. “She has trained nicely and looks well in herself. She was tight for room with two furlongs to run at Newmarket and who knows, she might have finished closer. We felt if we were happy with her condition that she deserved another chance to take another shot at a Classic. She is a laid-back worker, she’s not too flashy in her work at home but her performance in the Nell Gwyn and particularly her performance in the Guineas told us just how good she is.” Michael Bell is taking a chance on the Gredleys’ G1 Prix Morny winner Pretty Pollyanna (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), who has a second try at this trip having been third in the G1 Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket in October. “We feel there is every chance of her getting the mile a bit better this year, now that she is a year older and we’d be hopeful of being involved at the business end,” he said. “It is a good time to have runners when the yard is in good form. We won a Classic at the ‘old Curragh’ so we now want to win a Classic at the ‘new Curragh’ as well.” Also at the Kildare circuit, Magical (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) appears only to have to repeat her defeats of Flag of Honour (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) in both the G3 Alleged S. at Naas on Apr. 13 and this venue’s G2 Mooresbridge S. on May 6 to collect in the G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup, while at ParisLongchamp the G3 Prix du Lys sees Michael Tabor’s Apr. 23 Compiegne scorer, ‘TDN Rising Star’ Ballet Russe (Ire) (Camelot {GB}), work towards a potential G1 Grand Prix de Paris tilt. Trainer Andre Fabre has collected a record 15 renewals of this, including with Swain (Ire), Doyen (Ire) and Rail Link (GB) and he also saddles Godolphin’s May 4 Listed Prix de l’Avre third Khagan (Ire) (Le Havre {Ire}). That operation also has the unbeaten Charlie Appleby-trained Moonlight Spirit (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), who scored by nine lengths in a 12-furlong Leicester handicap on Apr. 27. “Moonlight Spirit is a progressive 3-year-old who has won over this distance and we are hoping that he can be competitive at this level,” Appleby said. “A good run here might potentially open up a slot for him at Royal Ascot.” Godolphin are also well-represented in the G1 Prix d’Ispahan in which the fillies hold sway, with their ‘TDN Rising Star’ Wild Illusion (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) returning after a second in the GI Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Churchill in November. Successful in the G1 Nassau S. at Goodwood in August and G1 Prix de l’Opera here on Arc day, she is reported in top order. “I am delighted with how Wild Illusion has progressed from three to four,” Appleby commented. “She has come to hand quicker than we expected–the plan was to wait for the Pretty Polly S., but she has being doing very well at home. She is coming up against colts for the first time, but she is a multiple Group 1 winner including at Longchamp and I am confident that she can run another big race.” Fourth in the Opera, fellow ‘TDN Rising Star’ With You (GB) (Dansili {GB}) re-opposes Wild Illusion and George Strawbridge’s G1 Prix Rothschild winner is also out for the first time in 2019. In that regard, she hands the initiative to the prestige colt in the line-up in the Niarchos Family’s G1 Prix du Jockey Club hero Study of Man (Ire) (Deep Impact {Jpn}). He was no match for Waldgeist (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) in the G1 Prix Ganay here on Apr. 28, but ran a race full of promise when 4 1/2 lengths away in second and he remains largely unexposed. Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum’s Zabeel Prince (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) took the nine-furlong G3 Earl of Sefton S. at Newmarket on Apr. 18 and the next three home, Forest Ranger (Ire) (Lawman {Fr}), Mustashry (GB) (Tamayuz {GB}) and Elarqam (GB) (Frankel {GB}) have all boosted the form. Also on ParisLongchamp’s card is the G1 Saxon Warrior Coolmore Prix Saint Alary, where His Highness The Aga Khan’s ‘TDN Rising Star’ Siyarafina (Fr) (Pivotal {GB}) is up in trip after beating the subsequent G1 Poule d’Essai des Pouliches runner-up Commes (Fr) (Le Havre {Ire}) and Listed Prix de Pontarme scorer Noor Sahara (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) in a mile conditions race here on Apr. 22. She encounters the Wertheimers’ Platane (GB) (Le Havre {Ire}), who beat the subsequent G3 Prix Cleopatre scorer Etoile (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}) in the nine-furlong G3 Prix Vanteaux at this track on Apr. 7, and also Juddmonte’s unbeaten Fount (GB) (Frankel {GB}). A daughter of Ventura (Chester House), the Andre Fabre trainee is back 13 days after scoring in a mile conditions race at Saint-Cloud which can only be a positive regarding her trainer’s intuition. Dusseldorf features the G2 German 1000 Guineas, where Team Valor’s Axana (Ger) (Soldier Hollow {GB}) stars after her success in the G2 Schwarzgold-Rennen at Cologne on Apr. 22. Saif Ali’s Main Edition (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}) heads the customary strong overseas challenge having finished seventh in the Apr. 16 G3 Nell Gwyn S. over seven furlongs at Newmarket. Unproven at a mile, the G3 Albany S. and G3 Sweet Solera S. winner promises to stay and it is just a case of whether she can deal with these rivals. They include the Apr. 13 G3 Fred Darling S. runner-up Iconic Choice (GB) (Sixties Icon {GB}), who was seventh and beaten less than three lengths in the G1 1000 Guineas at Newmarket on May 5, and Stall Lucky Owner’s Shalona (Fr) (Soldier Hollow {GB}) who caused a surprise when beating Sharoka (Ire) (Rock of Gibraltar {Ire}) in the Listed Henkel-Stutenpreis over this track and trip on Apr. 27.

  22. Hometown hero Vasilika (Skipshot) towers over Monday’s GI Gamely S. in both record and accomplishment, having done very little wrong over the past two seasons. The one-time claimer annexed a trio of graded races in 2018, including the 10-furlong GI Rodeo Drive S. at Santa Anita in September, before rounding out the year with a rare defeat, a fourth behind the Chad Brown-trained filly Uni (GB) (More Than Ready) in the GI Matriarch S. in December. A return winner in the GIII Megahertz S. Jan. 21, the Jerry Hollendorfer-trained filly came from off the pace to register another win in the Feb. 23 Buena Vista S. before taking the GII Royal Heroine S. Apr. 6. Brown tries to throw another wrench in the California stalwart’s record with graded winners Rymska (Fr) (Le Havre {Ire}) and Elysea’s World (Ire) (Champs Elysees {GB}). Breaking from Post 1, Rymska has shown remarkable consistency in three seasons, finishing in the money in 12 of 14 starts. Last term, she took the GIII Athenia S. at Belmont before finishing sixth in the Matriarch. This season, the black mare was runner up on the Feb. 9 GIII Suwannee River S. at Gulfstream before annexing Tampa’s GII Hillsborough S. Mar. 9. She finished second behind stablemate Rushing Fall (More Than Ready) in the GI Jenny Wiley S. at Keeneland Apr. 13. Elysea’s World, a three-time Grade III winner in 2018, kicked off 2019 with a sixth in the Buena Vista, but bounced back to eke out a win in the GIII Santa Ana S. at Santa Anita Mar. 30.

  23. Poor research triple A.... Try again.
  24. ‘TDN Rising Star’ Gift Box (Twirling Candy) looks to score his third consecutive win since moving to the West Coast barn of trainer John Sadler in Monday’s GI Gold Cup at Santa Anita S. Previously campaigned by Lane’s End’s W.S. Farish and conditioner Chad Brown, he was privately purchased by Hronis Racing last term and moved to Sadler. The gray is a perfect two-for-two in California, besting the late Battle of Midway (Smart Strike) in the GII San Antonio S. Dec. 26 and edging MGISW McKinzie (Street Sense) by a nose after a gritty stretch battle in the GI Santa Anita H. Apr. 6. That effort was further flattered when McKinzie came back to romp in the GII Alysheba S. on Kentucky Derby day and that runner is now pointing for the prestigious GI Met Mile S. Todd Pletcher ships last term’s GII Wood Memorial S. hero Vino Rosso (Curlin) in from New York to challenge the favorite. Third in the GII Jim Dandy S. last July, he was fifth in the GI Travers S. in August and was subsequently shelved for the season. Resurfacing in Aqueduct’s one-mile Stymie S. Mar. 9, the chestnut won that event and was fourth next out in the GI Carter H. in Ozone Park Apr. 6. Core Beliefs (Quality Road) returns to the Grade I level off a narrow victory in the GII New Orleans H. Mar. 23. The third-place finisher from that test Lone Sailor (Majestic Warrior) is also entered here, having finished a neck second in the GII Oaklawn H. last time Apr. 13.
