Bobby Flay’s beautiful BERNADINI filly DAME DOROTHY put in her trademark workmanlike performance to win the Gr. 111 Bed of Roses Stakes at Belmont on June 20th. She had missed her intended target in a Gr. 1 on Belmont Stakes day due to a head cold, but bounced back in style to give weight all round and put the opposition firmly in their place. Go girl!
Now it is off to Saratoga and the Gr. 1 Demoiselle in August.
Excitement mounts here as Irish Derby day approaches. Derby 2nd JACK HOBBS, whose dam SWAIN’S GOLD I purchased for Willie and Elaine Carson at Keeneland January 2007, is trading at odds on for the Curragh classic.
More details of this transaction will follow if he wins!
Big party w/e in Ireland – I will be amazing the locals with my dance moves at the Co.Kildare celebration of Henrietta Michael and David Egan’s recent marriage in London.
