Bayside Boy (Ire)

The New Boy At Ballylinch Stud

It is never a chore to pay the team at Ballylinch Stud a visit. The winding road that leads to the stone entrance is hugged by greenery and pastures as well as a resplendent view over the River Nore which separates the Mount Juliet Estate and the stud. Once on the grounds, history is preserved amongst the new infrastructure as The Tetrarch's grave greets you on your way to the stallion yard.

Camelot's Luxembourg In Control In The Futurity Trophy

Backed down to 4-6 favouritism as the heavy-hitters came out to play on Saturday, the new beau of Ballydoyle Luxembourg (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) gave his supporters a comfortable ride in Saturday's G1 Vertem Futurity Trophy at Doncaster to head into winter quarters one of the leading members of his generation.

All Set For Future Champions Day

Whether Newmarket's "Future Champions Day" lives up to its name is reliant on a trio of tests on Saturday, with a heavy emphasis on the feature G1 Darley Dewhurst S. to uphold the fixture's reputation as the launch site for excellence. In Godolphin's Native Trail (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), the seven-furlong 2-year-old jewel of the British season's crown has the prime candidate for the coronation much as the operation's Pinatubo (Ire) (Shamardal) was in 2019. If his G2 Superlative S. success at the July Festival here failed to set anything...

New Bay's Bayside Boy Takes The Champagne

With the Gosdens and Frankie in such hot form and given the silks he carries, there was understandably a keen focus on The Queen's G3 Solario S. winner Reach For the Moon (GB) (Sea the Stars {Ire}) in Saturday's G2 Champagne S. at Doncaster.
