Places:
Ch. Wry Hope (3yo, Formal Occasion) in the Matt Winn Stakes (Ungr.) - Not a graded win, but after struggling all year to even stay in the money, I’m glad to see this guy pulling himself back together. He already has all his G1 qualifications met, so if I could just convince him to win a bit more, maybe there’s hope for him yet?
Ch. Boy King (5yo, Akhetnaten) in the Pimlico Special (Gr. 1) - Trying not to get my hopes up too much, but this means only 3 more wins and he’d be stud qualified!

Shows:
Rampant Side (3yo, Celtic Star) in a claiming race - Claimed from Final Furlong. I’ve been trying to cut down the number of horses I own, but since this little gal is a half sister to ICh. Spock, I couldn’t convince myself to pass her up.

Whimsical (2yo, Blue Smoke) in an 6f Allowance. She’ll rest up a bit then try a Stakes, as she’s 2 for 2.

Speaking of Stakes…
Calling All Souls (3yo, Pay the Boatman) came 2nd in the Two Thousand Guineas (Gr. 1). Really really impressed with him, as he only broke his maiden last time out.

Also second, new claimer Marvelous Prodigy (3yo, Dixie Time)

Queen Of The West (3yo, Animal Kingdom) came 3rd in a NW1 Allowance. Possibly raced her a bit soon after her last start, but she’s proved she likes turf.
