I love watching Goldikova race.
Luckily, I was able to watch her race in the Queen Anne Stakes the other day and she performed wonderfully. Put her in a race at a mile on good ground and she’ll get it done time and again.
I had my doubts at the beginning of the race though, because Paco Boy looked good.
But the champion mare had just enough left in the tank to hold onto the top spot by a head.
From a friend who frequents UK racetracks: “I didn’t give Noble’s Promise” much of a chance going into the St James’s Palace Stakes but I’ve got to give him a lot of credit for his effort.
He didn’t win (he finished 5th) but he ran hard and fit in decently enough with a very good field. No word on where Noble’s Promise will be pointed to next, but I’d be shocked if he’s not pointed toward a race on the lawn at a mile back in the U.S.
All in all an exciting few days at the track.
