By Tom Frary

Overshadowed by stablemate and 11-4 favourite Mehdaayih (GB) (Frankel {GB}) in the lead-up to Friday’s G1 Investec Oaks, the Meon Valley Stud homebred Anapurna (GB) was ultimately the one with the sire’s bragging rights as she provided the Juddmonte giant with a first British Classic. Sent off at 8-1 with Frankie Dettori resuming the partnership having steered her to an impressive success in the May 11 Listed Lingfield Oaks Trial, the bay enjoyed a perfect stalking trip against the rail in third from her unfavourable low draw.

With the early pace proving far from taxing, she wasideally placed but needed luck as Ballydoyle’s Pink Dogwood (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) cut loose out wide under Ryan Moore approaching two out. Getting the split on the inner soon after, she had a length to make up on that rival but the famous Frankel momentum began to build and she was marginally ahead 100 yards from the line. Frankie put his stick down there with the contest decided and she was a cosy neck margin to the good at the line as Fleeting (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}) stayed on strongly to make it two Ballydoyle runners in the frame, 1 1/4 lengths further behind. Mehdaayih was only seventh after a troubled passage which included a hefty bump approaching the final furlong. (TDN)

KOREA, Gaon Champ, Doraonpogyeongseon, Ace Korea in SBS Sports Sprint / Silver Wolf in Ttukseom Cup: SUNDAY RACE-BY-RACE PREVIEW (June 2)

by gyongmaman

It’s a massive day of double Graded Stakes action at Seoul Racecourse on Sunday. The second leg of the Sprint Series sees Busan Ilbo Cup winner facing off against Ace Korea and two-time winner Doraonpogyeongseon. Meanwhile, the great Aussie mare Silver Wolf will be hot favourite to win the Ttukseom Cup. There are 11 races at Seoul from 10:45 to 18:00 and 6 at Busan from 12:40 to 17:10.

Gaon Champ KRA

Seoul Race 1: Class 6 (1000M) Allowance / KRW 24 Million

(3) CHEONNYEONUI BARAM is the most experienced galloper of the field and has started to show some consistency in his racing. He finished second last start behind Geumbit Yeoljeong in a time that was good considering a dry track. (8) NEOSEONG BYOKRYOK has placed at his last two starts over the 1000m. With four weeks between runs he should be freshened up for another good performance over the 1000m. (10) O PI M J has ran some handy races over the 1000m prior to this event. Expect the three-year-old to drop back as he normally does suggesting the wide draw will not be a problem. (9) HYEONGMA PUBU is first up since July last year but had a trial coming into this event. The four-year-old showed some promise in this type of race last year.

Selections (3) Cheonnyeonui Baram (8) Neoseong Byokryok (10) O Pi M J (9) Hyeongma Pubu
Next Best 6, 11
Fast Start 3, 11, 12

Seoul Race 2: Class 6 (1000M) Allowance / KRW 24 Million

The second on the card has twelve engaged all looking for their first win. (2) UTGE HAEJULGE gets his best chance to notch his maiden win. The three-year-old has drawn ideally for his style of racing. He should sit right behind the speed and Lim Gi-Won can produce him at the top of the straight. (6) SEOUL MAGIC has shown some form over the 1000m of late. The chestnut has early speed so expect him to be in the first couple in running. (3) ANYANG LEOPARD finished runner up behind Independence last start which a few of these are coming out of that particular race. (8) MOONHAKCHEETAH notched his first place finish last start and can improve today.

Selections (2) Utge Haejulge (6) Seoul Magic (3) Anyang Leopard (8) Moonhakcheetah

Fast Start 5, 6, 10

Seoul Race 3: Class 5 (1000M) Handicap / KRW 40 Million

The third has a field of twelve engaged where we can make a case for almost half the field. (3) CAMP BADA saluted in good fashion last time out when dropping back to the 1000m. With the similar draw to that of last time she will be in this for a long way down the Seoul straight. (2) MISS GELLA doesn’t like winning but she continues to keep the stakes rolling over for connections. She can jump quickly and sit in the leading division. (5) BAEKSANG showed a clean set of heels last time out when leading from gate to line. Moon Sung-Hyeok retains the ride and gets small weight relief with the rise in class. (4) GABO PULL QUEEN saluted at an each-way price last time out over the 1300m when overcoming barrier eleven. This is tougher but keep her safe.

Selections (3) Camp Bada (2) Miss Gella (5) Baeksang (4) Gabo Pull Queen
Next Best 10, 6
Fast Start 3, 4, 5, 8

Seoul Race 4: Class 6 (1300M) Allowance / KRW 40 Million

A field of eight maidens take to the track in the fourth where there only appears to be a few chances. The Kim Soon-Keun trained (3) ROYAL GHOST looks hard to beat at her fourth career start. Kim Yong Geun will partner the three-year-old who had a trial earlier this month. Expect her to sit closer in the small field. (7) MIGHTY LUCK was promising on debut last time out when she finished fourth over the 1000m. Expect improvement from the athletic looking chestnut today. (6) COILRO looked green in the run home last time out. She was beaten a big margin, but she did still have fuel in the tank at the post unlike the majority who finished behind her. (4) MACH THUNDER appears the best of the rest in a maiden that lacks form.

Selections (3) Royal Ghost (7) Mighty Luck (6) Coilro (4) Mach Thunder
Next Best 2, 1
Fast Start 3, 7

Seoul Race 5: Class 5 (1200M) Handicap / KRW 40 Million

The engagement of Kim Yong-Geun gives confidence when looking at the chances of (5) CHODONG BOBAE. The filly hit overdrive in the last furlong when winning last time out, but she did look like she would benefit from a senior rider. (11) PRIME QUEEN broke maiden status last time out in good style. She wasn’t given the most economic run by Moon Se-Young but her brute strength won her the race. She is a winning chance and will be ridden by Johan Victoire with Moon Se-Young on forced vacation. Look for improvement from (4) BIG PRO after and encouraging second last start when running through the line strong. (8) MAPAEBONG has finished in the top five on eight occasions from eleven starts and should be considered in your novelties.

Selections (5) Chodong Bobae (11) Prime Queen (4) Big Pro (8) Mapaebong
Next Best 2, 9
Fast Start 2, 9, 11

Busan Race 2: Class 5 (1300M) Handicap / KRW 40 Million

A small field of eight will line up over the 1300m in the second at Busan. It appears that there will be a short-priced favourite in the form of (3) ULTRA POWER. The three-year-old broke maiden status two starts back in Class 6 company and then backed it up with a respectable fourth last time out when beaten 2.5L by Dodohan who has a significant weight advantage. This looks a weaker task and the colt gets the services of the in-form Seo Seung-Un. (4) CHOEGANG STEALTH starts a new preparation and has the benefit of a trial coming into this assignment. The five-year-old has shown glimpses of ability including a last start second before going to the paddock. Four-year-old (7) WANBONG looks the best of the rest. He failed to muster last time out and was hemmed away on the fence in traffic. His runs prior were respectable and he can be considered a place chance. (8) ROYAL CLUB has been out of form recently but has placed in this company.

Selections (3) Ultra Power (4) Choegang Stealth (7) Wanbong (8) Royal Club
Next Best 5, 6
Fast Start 3

Seoul Race 6: Class 4 (1200M) Handicap / KRW 60 Million

Three-year-old daughter of Menifee (3) TAP LINE looks hard to beat after a dominant win over 1300m last start. She jumped out of the gates and went straight to the lead only to accelerate in good fashion at the top of the straight. Johan Victoire takes over from the suspended Alan Munro. (5) MALAKAS won in similar company last time out in a blanket finish. She rises 2kg in the weight scale is considered an each-way chance. There are some speedy ones engaged in this event so it won’t surprise if she gets a fair way back…  Read more of this post


Roma Capannelle, domenica conclusiva per le corse al galoppo – 2 giugno!

Gran finale. Capannelle galoppo vivrà domenica la sua ultima giornata di corse primaverile e sarà ancora una volta una splendida domenica di corse, tanto a livello spettacolare con tantissimi partenti (addirittura 13 in media per ognuna delle sette corse) come durante tutta la primavera, quanto sotto il profilo della qualità grazie alla disputa della corsa per i due anni che fu un tempo il Criterium di Roma, ora sui 1100 metri, ed ora da diverso tempo si disputa nel ricordo di un grande Maestro di cultura, passione e signorilità quale fu Alberto Giubilo. In campo in sei: Batellik,Golden Air ForceGrainaiceI Love ThisGameSicilian Focus e Triana.

Non soltanto i due anni, avranno anche un’altra prova sui fondamentali 1400 metri nel periodo, ma anche festival degli handicap principali che saranno tre e tutti affollati. Sulla breve distanza dei mille, gran volata nel ricordo di Aldo e Renato Ricchi, seconda tris, che furono meravigliosi allevatori e dirigenti del nostro mondo in anni purtroppo lontani. Saranno in 12 al via e tra costoro lungo la scala dei pesi ecco PenaltyIntense LifeGold TailMagdalene FoxFrom Me To MeAstragalus e non solo. Tullio Mei fu direttore storico di Capannelle ed Enzo ne è stato presidente indimenticabile.

Sui 2000 eccellente e spettacolare scontro intergenerazionale con plenaria partecipazione e anche questa seconda tris. In gabbia entreranno in ben 16, corsa splendidamente spettacolare con in luce Fico senza SpineDeeper DiveJalapenoKepleroPrince RedFreedom DaySpecial Rush.

Nel pomeriggio, terzo HP, celebriamo anche Capannelle Trotto, importante ed indispensabile controcanto alle riunioni di galoppo. Tutti sul miglio e in ben 15, davvero un pomeriggio che più ben riuscito non si potrebbe definire. Uno sguardo speciale verso Change of Moon e Halo’s Power ma anche Sergio LeoneTata PilaMewat e Hortos ma non solo ovviamente. In tutto sette corse, due in pista dritta, una in quella piccola (opportunamente un 1400 per i due anni) e le altre in pista grande. Si chiude dunque con l’utilizzo delle piste di selezione al massimo.

Quattro handicap, due maiden (una per i due anni e l’altra per i tre) ed una condizionata, il Giubilo. Le distanze andranno dai 1000 ai 2000 metri. Un ennesimo pomeriggio di sicuro divertimento, spettacolo e partecipazione.

A tutti gli appassionati di corse al galoppo appuntamento a settembre.

Ippodromo del Mediterraneo, Siracusa. Gran Galà del Galoppo e Palio dei Palii. Tra purosangue, asini e quarter horse 


Il 2 Giugno all’Ippodromo del Mediterraneo di Siracusa è evento. In scena il Gran Galà del Galoppo che schiera sette corse tra cui l’atteso Gran Premio Teatro Greco – Trofeo Goffs Uk,  uno spettacolo garantito dalle gare con gli asini e, novità assoluta, le competizioni con i cavalli più veloci sul quarto di miglio: i quarter horse. In pista i quartieri di Floridia contro quelli di Canicattini Bagni che si sfideranno per il Palio dei Palii. La promozione dell’ippica passa attraverso la rievocazione delle tradizioni popolari delle due cittadine note una, Canicattini Bagni, per il Palio di San Michele al cui interno si sviluppa a Cursa che Scecchi, l’altra, Floridia, che attende il ripristino del Palio dell’Ascensione Floridiana con le corse dei cavalli lungo Corso Vittorio Emanuele. I nomi dei quartieri, con i colori storici dei loro stendardi sulle approntate giubbe, saranno protagonisti sulle piste dell’Ippodromo. Stessi quartieri in competizione con i Quarter Horse dell’A.S.D. Spettacoli Equestri di Maria Purità che per la prima volta si lanceranno sulle piste per decretare tutte le loro caratteristiche: agilità, velocità, destrezza.

Il Galoppo offre un Premio Teatro Greco – Trofeo Goffs Uk legato al nome della casa d’aste pronta ad offrire in giornata trofei e  bonus ai vincitori. Coach Me Softly è il soggetto da battere per l’HP sui 1600 metri di pista grande. Non ne perde una dal 15 dicembre e assume dunque il ruolo di favorito. Proverà a farsi valida avversaria la compagna di scuderia Francisca Pink, tornata a Siracusa dopo parentesi romana e  ancora i positivi Signor Arancio  e Principe Azzurro. L’incognita la poniamo su il Illegal Bullet che approda a Siracusa dopo carriera milanese. Poi le sorprese, tra cui annoveriamo Quicksilver e  Leon Dorado. 

Nella Maiden abbinata al Premio Goffs UK, invece, i cavalli di 2 anni si affrontano sui 1200 metri di pista piccola. Pochi riferimenti, molte le incognite. I soggetti più affidabili sono Chicaloca, tra le femmine, e Gale Words, tra i maschi. La condizionata legata al Premio Palio Ascensione, invece, è totalmente nelle mani di Dorkhel.
