Road Winner Motors To Another Victory / Buhwarui Banseok Back On Top At Busan

by gyongmaman

 Road Winner added to his burgeoning reputation at Seoul Racecourse on Sunday afternoon the Dicreet Cat colt, who won the JRA Trophy on international weekend last month, running out a comfortable winner in Seoul’s class 1 feature handicap.

The return of SHAMROCKER, still one of the highest-rated horses in the Korean capital, meant the rest of the field were carrying light weights and while Shamrocker himself ran creditably for 6th, he was nowhere near Road Winner. Once jockey Antonio Da Silva released the hand-brake, the even-money favourite easily saw off the challenge of WINNER GOLD and a game HAEMARU to win the 1800M test by two-and-a-half lengths.

A three-year-old colt, Road Winner was a $20,000 purchase at the OBS 2017 Spring Sale of Two-Year-Olds and with the win, moved onto five wins from seven starts with prize money of US$250,000.

At Busan, BUHWARUI BANSEOK returned to the winner’s circle in the south-coast track’s feature handicap. Bart Rice’s five-year-old ran a strong 5th in last season’s Grand Prix Stakes and had been solid throughout this year’s campaign which had yielded one win from five starts prior to today. He was sent off at odds in excess of 20/1 though as Kim Young Kwan’s CAPTAIN FORCE, a Minister’s Cup also-ran but a four-length winner over this class and distance in early September.

The three-year-old was never in the hunt though as, under apprentice jockey Jo Sang-beom, Buhwarui Banseok struck the front just over a furlong out and ran on to win by a comfortable three-lengths from 2nd placed-APPROACH, who was racing for the first time since his creditable 5th place in the KRA Trophy at Kranji in Singapore in July.

Next Sunday Stakes action returns to Seoul with the Group 3 Jeju Governor’s Cup for fillies and mares over seven furlongs.


Havana Grey To Whitsbury Manor

Saturday, October 13, 2018


Havana Grey | Racing Post

Last month’s G1 Flying Five S. winner Havana Grey (Ire) (Havana Gold {GB}-Blanc De Chine {Ire}, by Dark Angel {Ire}) will enter stud next year at Whitsbury Manor Stud.

Whitsbury Manor Director Ed Harper said of the 3-year-old, “We’ve been following him ever since he won the [G3] Molecomb [S.] as a 2-year-old as he’s such a strong individual with a big sales walk. After his Group 1 and Group 2 wins this summer, it was just a matter of whether we could afford him.”

“He’s the fastest horse from the Galileo sire line, and combining that with his dam by Dark Angel, it makes him a very exciting sire to send fast, commercial mares. It is possible he may run once more in the [GI] Breeders Cup Turf Sprint, but we’ll aim to start showing him to breeders in mid-November.”

“A select number of lifetime breeding rights will be sold in a similar way to how we have managed Showcasing.”

Those previously mentioned stakes wins were Goodwood’s Molecomb, in which Havana Grey last year bested Invincible Army (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}), and this year’s G2 Sapphire S. Havana Grey also won twice at listed level at two, and was out of the top two just once in eight juvenile starts. He was also second in the G1 Prix Morny.

A fee will be announced at a later date.


Dewhurst Glory For Too Darn Hot

Saturday, October 13, 2018
3rd at NEW, Gr. Stk, £500,000 G1 Darley Dewhurst S. (7f) Winner: Too Darn Hot (GB), c, 2 by Dubawi (Ire)


‘TDN Rising Star’ turned Group 1 winner Too Darn Hot | Racing Post

By Tom Frary

Fears in the Lloyd-Webber-Gosden camp that the unseasonable balmy temperature would undermine Too Darn Hot (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) grew with every increase in fahrenheit ahead of Saturday’s G1 Darley Dewhurst S., but the sensational TDN Rising Star duly proved impervious to any obstacle to achieving juvenile champion status. With Newmarket basking in the weird heat, it was expected that the dynamism that had marked his wins on rain-eased ground in the Sept. 1 G3 Solario S. and Sept. 15 G2 Champagne S. would be dumbed down in the strongest encounter of his brief career. For a period of a furlong or so as the track’s most extreme undulations came into play, the even-money favourite did look in bother but Frankie Dettori kept looking for momentum to power out of the “dip” and the homebred responded with a surge to record an ultimately emphatic 2 3/4-length defeat of Advertise (GB)(Showcasing {GB}), with Anthony Van Dyck (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) 1 1/4 lengths away in third. Dettori, who like trainer John Gosden was winning this prestige event for the first time, was left in no doubt as to the winner’s merit. “He’s an amazing horse and among the best I’ve ridden,” he said. “He’s got everything, a good cruising speed and really quickens. He’s got pace and is bred to stay. He’s had three easy races in his life and he was getting knocked about in the middle and ran in snatches, so for a minute I thought I would struggle. Then the turbo kicks in and on he goes–in the end I was able to ease him down.”

If things had appeared to come easy to Too Darn Hot since his introduction at Sandown just over two months ago, it is only due to his inherent ability as he had a difficult trip to overcome in the Solario and in the Champagne. He could easily have led from the outset in any of his outings and that was the case again here but Dettori was exercising the usual heavy restraint as he tucked the bay in behind the Ballydoyle-carved tempo. Stuck in a pocket until the ruthless pace began to draw out the field, he was flat-footed when asked to put in a major effort running downhill and was not making the customary smooth progress as Advertise and Anthony Van Dyck pressed on in front. As soon as he became balanced, there was the same overwhelming finale on display and he was really going somewhere at the line to leave proven group 1 performers behind and put 8 1/2 lengths between him and the talented duo Sangarius (GB) (Kingman {GB}) and Kuwait Currency (Kitten’s Joy).

“They’ve gone a good pace but he was on the metal, so Frankie had to cover him up and he did that beautifully,” John Gosden commented. “The interesting thing was when he was brought out he was not comfortable in the dip and then got balanced and flew. It is firm and he needs good ground, but that’s his class showing. Seven is sharp enough for him, but he’s blessed with an awful lot of speed and he seems to be taking more after his father. He’s a great guy and a wonderful character–he’s with you 100 per-cent. It has to be the 2000 Guineas now. It’s a little unusual to go group three, group two and group one, but he’s shown his class and this is a bit of a dream come true for Madeleine and Andrew.” Gosden also has Calyx (GB) (Kingman {GB}), who has been absent since beating Advertise arguably as impressively as Too Darn Hot did here back in June at Royal Ascot. The proximity of the runner-up was not lost on the Clarehaven maestro who added, “They have never worked together, but Calyx is the only other one I have who compares and he is in great form at the moment–he’s just trotting and playing about and he’ll be back next year. It’ll be wonderful if they could meet in the spring and we hope they will. I expected that first four, Advertise has run a fabulous race and Aidan’s wants a mile now.”

Martyn Meade was far from downheartened despite the defeat of Advertise and said, “I’m really pleased that he got the seven furlongs–I was a little bit apprehensive about that, but he’s acquitted himself brilliantly. He lost his action going into the dip and then run on again, so it was a really good performance and the Guineas is on the cards. It has always been at the back of my mind, but I had to wait until I knew he’d get a mile so I’ll train him for that now.”

Dar Re Mi (GB) (Singspiel {Ire}), who got the Lloyd-Webbers’ bandwagon rolling as she emerged as a high-class performer 10 years ago, had already been front and centre this week with her yearling full-brother to Too Darn Hot selling for 3.5 million gns at Tattersalls. The winner had been due to go there 12 months ago, but for once luck was on the side of his owner-breeders as what was perceived as an unfortunate setback at the time turned out to be one of those welcome twists of fate. Dar Re Mi was as strong a middle-distance stayer as her pedigree suggested she would be, but her daughters also by Dubawi, So Mi Dar (GB) and Lah Ti Dar (GB) have proven contrasting types. The former had genuine 10-furlong speed and probably would have been stretched going further, while the latter was staying on to great effect at the end of the extended 14-furlong trip of last month’s G1 St Leger. Both were denied runs in a British Classic–the Epsom Oaks in their case–due to training complications and it is up to Too Darn Hot to snap that trend back here on the first Saturday in May. He may have another Dubawi in the way there if Godolphin’s Quorto (Ire) makes the engagement. Dar Re Mi’s 2018 filly is again by that sire, who has come to the fore in a year where he has challenged the great Galileo with more resilience than ever.
