The Impossible Dream video - the return of Sprinter Sacre
10:35 a.m. EDT  Champion Chase G1 - Sandown - 5+ 2 mi R3 CARD
Forecast: 10/11 Sprinter Sacre, 11/8 Un De Sceaux, 12/1 Sire De Grugy, 14/1 Dodging Bullets, 50/1 Ulck Du Lin, 50/1 Solar Impulse

Sprinter Sacre out to steal Sandown "While the Gold Cup – over three miles and four furlongs, involving 24 fences – would normally be the highlight of the afternoon, it’s likely most attention will be on the preceding race, the Celebration Chase. "

Nicky Henderson: Sprinter Sacre looks too good not to run at Sandown. The black aeroplane will take on Willie Mullins’s Un De Sceaux in Celebration Chase. Read more at source  

According to TimeForm: A fascinating rematch between UN DE SCEAUX and Queen Mother Champion Chase hero SPRINTER SACRE. The latter won that race fairly and squarely, but the prospect of a softer lead will surely help the former no end, and with Sprinter Sacre likely best fresh nowadays, the scales are tilted slightly in Un de Sceaux's favour.

U.S.

Note:  TDN Rising Star Behrnik's Bank slightly favored in the NY Stallion Stakes in her 3 year old debut. She's the one that won her debut by 18 links and her second race, a listed stakes, by 13, then lost by a nose her third time out. Just couldn't mature enough to get on the Oaks Trail, I suppose, and don't know much more about her, but she sure is fun to watch!

Even Before He Hit the Track, American Pharoah Offered a Glimpse of Magic


Excerpted from “American Pharoah,” to be released by Hachette Books on April 26.

The Thoroughbred Daily News featured a review by T.D. Thornton. Book Review: American Pharoah: The Untold Story of the Triple Crown Winner's Legendary Rise

I have to admit, I am looking forward to buying and reading this book, even though I think, like many of us, I could probably write it myself having lived through every thrill-packed moment. My only regret is not having been able to see him race in person, especially the Belmont, which quite literally took my breath away. I had no idea that Drape was such a wordsmith, given to phrases that conjure up music rather than mere words. Examples:

"It can be difficult to capture the poetic motion of a horse in full flight with written words, but Drape does so admirably. As a young foal, Pharoah is described as 'exuding joy,' with his 'head high, folding and unfolding himself with exquisite balance.' His first open gallop is recounted by his rider as 'at once breathtaking and terrifying.'

"Of his pre-Derby workout, a clocker says, 'he stays in the air longer than any horse, and you get the feeling that there’s not one gear left, but he may have two, three or four gears.' "
"In the Preakness he 'rolled down the lane with the force of a waterfall.'

"The Belmont? Pharoah 'glided into the first turn like a marble circling a roulette wheel' and hit the finish wire 'as if he were walking on clouds.' "

Tapits can be hard to handle, and with the addition of Sunday Silence as the Broodmare Sire, Lani has brought drama to CD. He pulled a similar unconventional workout last week. His jockey this week was quoted as saying he never knows what to expect until the gates open! I have to say, I would be secretly tickled pink if he should upset in the Derby. Can never resist the opportunity for Sunday Silence to show US breeders what they missed by snubbing him. (Note: For any newbies out there, Sunday Silence progeny are close to $1 Billion in earnings! The most successful sire in history.)

The above story was written in March this year, with The Sprinter making a comeback of legendary proportions, and then, topping it off in April with one more race to end the season undefeated: Celebration Chase at Sandown - April 24, 2016  No plans to retire comeback king, Sprinter Sacre

Industry News
DeFrancis emerges as powerful voice for reform
“Barbaro’s injury was not the result of medication use,” he said. “It was just tragic bad luck. But had it been traceable to some form of medication abuse, you can forget about it. Millennials and people of all generations will abandon horse racing so fast it will make everyone’s head spin. That’s why this is so critical and so critical it be done right now. We are in a state of crisis. We are one catastrophic accident away from what would be irreparable damage to sport.”

DeFrancis added that the reputation of American racing elsewhere in the world could not be worse.
“Internationally, we are literally a joke,” he said.

He recounted a conversation he had recently with foreign horsemen.

“Someone said, ‘Don’t you have bleeders in Australia?’ and they all laughed and said, ‘Yeah, we just send them all to the United States,” DeFrancis said. “We’ve become a dumping ground for horses with infirmities. We are fiddling while Rome is burning when we talk about the ability to do this by states all coming together. We’re talking about the states doing something they haven’t been able to do for 50 years.”

Note: It should be pointed out that the only involvement by the Federal government is the establishment or authorization of the Agency, to be an "arm" of the US Anti-Doping Agency (which cleaned up Olympic and Cycling sports) for the Thoroughbred industry. It will be funded by the industry itself, and will not be funded by taxpayer dollars.

Visually, Exaggerator looks awesome, and he was, however, in truth the other runners were backing up, making Exaggerator's finish more impressive than it was. The above video analysis demonstrates how your eyes can deceive you in to thinking a horse is better than he actually may be. Also important to remember, he finished behind Nyquist 3 times.
