Loving Dream All Out For Prix de Royallieu Glory

Lordship Stud's 3-year-old homebred filly Loving Dream (GB) (Gleneagles {Ire}) notched a personal best when snagging Royal Ascot's June 17 G2 Ribblesdale S., but slipped down to fifth when confronted by an ensemble cast in York's Aug. 19 G1 Yorkshire Oaks in her most recent start. Tackling ground worse than soft and a trip beyond 12 furlongs for the first time in Saturday's G1 Qatar Prix de Royallieu at ParisLongchamp, she displayed a willing attitude throughout and provided Team Gosdens and Dettori with a measure of compensation after Stradivarius (Ire)...

LNJ Foxwoods Setting The Gold Standard

For the Roth Family's LNJ Foxwoods, topping 2019 will be a tall order. The spring got off to a good start when Country House (Lookin at Lucky), who the Roths had bought into after he broke his maiden five starts earlier, posted a 65-1 upset victory in the GI Kentucky Derby.
