Quick news blurb since Tumblr mobile won’t let me post the news link.

Mind Your Biscuits has been sold to stand stud at Shadai Farm in Japan. He will continue to race for the rest of 2018 and will depart to Japan for 2019.

I’ve been thinking Biscuits was a gelding this entire time. My life is a lie.

Nope, he has only been racing this long because apparently there is very little interest in him from US breeders. Or so many comments seem to say.

About that Belmont field…

silly-fox-in-sox:

It’s gonna be real interesting to see if Winstar & China Horse Club are willing to send Audible to the Belmont to take on Justify.

They had 0 worries about Quip spoiling a possible Triple Crown bid, but after that close Preakness finish they seem a bit more worried about the Belmont. If he’s sent, Audible would be a major player.

It will say a lot about their confidence in Justify if they’re willing to send a horse like Audible to take him on.

They said before the Preakness though if Justify goes Audible doesn’t.

I’m starting to feel like a broken record right now. Not because of you but because I’ve had to point this out to several people.

The difference between the Preakness and Belmont scenario is Belmont there is now racing immortality on the line. Yeah it was too at Pimlico but it was less of a gamble there.

Also judging by this early list of possible starters, Audible isn’t the only one being kept out due to owners connections to Justify:

Chad Brown looked like he wanted to murder Jos…

Jose Ortiz said he was going to make a match race of it two days ago (I remember because my first words were ‘Are you nuts?’ Justify didn’t strike me as the type that it was a smart idea to head and I was right). And apparently word didn’t get back to Chad Brown about this little plan.

Chad sounded mad enough in the Blood-Horse article that I’m wondering if Jose might lose the mount.

I think the video really put his rage into perspective. He was simmering.

This is the article I was talking about. I don’t think this is going to end well whenever Jose’s comments get back to Chad. Because he makes it clear here if no one else was going to go after Justify on the lead he was.

Oh wow that’s bad.

Not sure if you saw some of the posts since I think we are in some of the same Facebook groups but not all of them. But not all of them. But some are saying Chad told him to do that. And I’m like that doesn’t look like the face of someone whose jockey followed their instructions
