The same goes for time spent handicapping. Yes, that Dave Johnson, the announcer emeritus who has made the trip to the Arc for probably half his life. With that, here are my thoughts and picks for the five championship races on the British Champions card at Ascot, where the ground will be somewhere between soft and heavy.
Three-time Group 1 winner Advertise is the class of the field, but can he win on a bottomless course? That being in doubt, my money will be on Hello Youmzain , winner of the Group 1 Sprint Cup on a soft Haydock course last month.
That is a quick turnaround from a testing race. Mekong is worth a look underneath thanks to a seven-length handicap win last year at Haydock on heavy turf. Stable mate Anapurna and Tarnawa also have shown the ability to win on sodden ground. Winner of six in a row including the Wildenstein two weeks ago in France, The Revenant looks too good for the rest of this field. Curiously, trainer Francis Graffard is adding a hood, perhaps trying to avoid a repeat of the distracted albeit victorious effort in Paris.
Late money has come in on Century Dream , third in this race last year. He could pay a nice price just hitting the board. The mid-pack running Coronet is my choice since she could pick up the pieces if the early pace is too quick. My swing for the fences — or for the cricket ropes — is underneath with Pondus , the longest shot on the board that has finished second in his last two starts on heavy or soft turf. The 7-year-old Redzel won the first two runnings of this race in and One could do worse than betting an each-way ticket on him and Redzel.
On what is expected to be a wet Melbourne day with a soft track, the Juddmonte 6-year-old gelding Finche is the favorite. But that was on better ground. My lean is to Vow And Declare , a 4-year-old closer that should like the added distance, and The Chosen One , a Group 2 winner on this course and at this distance that will be carrying much less weight.
Instead of becoming a broodmare next spring, Enable is coming back to race in , a burst of good news for racing fans that was announced Wednesday by Juddmonte Farms racing manager Lord Teddy Grimthorpe. The Arc remains an important target. This makes total sense. In futures betting off shore and overseas, Catalina Cruiser is best priced at ; Omaha Beach , Mitole and Improbable It appears more frequently during coverage of big races.

Compare what we get here in the Daily Racing Form , Brisnet and even track programs with the flimsy narratives on offer almost anywhere else around the world. There is no question that America is the super power when it comes to past performances. Having traveled every year since to cover races in Europe after living in Australia from to , I have learned how to speak fluent Racing Post and Racenet. It does not necessarily guarantee winning tickets. But at least I am able to arm myself with a range of expectations on the horses.
That especially means reading pace and ground preference, two of the most important factors in any turf race. One of the first things to know about any overseas race is the weather and how firm or soft the turf will be. I will presume that everyone has a favorite website or app to find forecasts for anywhere on earth. Then go to RacingPost. Find the particular race of interest, and look at the top of the page.
It will show the expectation for the ground that day. The next step then when looking at the entries is to click on the name of each horse and look at his or her past races. For that Ascot card, I want to see which ones have done well on soft, very soft and heavy ground. Coronet, for example, on Aug.
That is a good sign. Go back to the list of entries. Those are speed figures that may be used much the same way as Beyers. From there it is just a matter of navigating from horse to horse, a process that is admittedly clunky. But with practice it gets less time consuming. One very expandable page. Print it out, and entire forests appear to be sucked out of the earth. Led sett fence led settling along the fence. Leader straightening into the stretch. Kicked m. Run down latter stages.
As for my choice Ten Sovereigns? Unfortunately there are no trip notes since he has not yet raced in Australia. In his case, I had to scramble back to Racing Post. Yes, this takes some work. Oh, there is also that most un-American of racing distinctions.
The post positions and program numbers do not match in England and Australia. Saddle cloth numbers are instead based on weight, age and gender. The gate assignment is shown in parentheses near the program number. Those are the basics that I have put into use over the last decade and change, and with each passing year I feel more confident — even if I do not get any more rich.
There is no substitute for familiarity with racing colonies; that is no different over there or down under than it is here. The same goes for time spent handicapping. Yes, that Dave Johnson, the announcer emeritus who has made the trip to the Arc for probably half his life.
With that, here are my thoughts and picks for the five championship races on the British Champions card at Ascot, where the ground will be somewhere between soft and heavy. Three-time Group 1 winner Advertise is the class of the field, but can he win on a bottomless course? She also repeated as middle distance champion. Bowman and Waller were also honoured as leading Group 1 jockey and trainer respectively.
The race did not go to plan, however, as she was left at the barriers, missing the start by some four lengths. Her stablemate Foxplay kicked clear into the straight, and Hugh Bowman on Winx had to ease her into the race. Coming from last on the turn and still last at the m mark, she lengthened stride and finished fast to run Foxplay down right on the line to win by a half neck in a "remarkable" effort.
Concerned by the poor start in the Warwick, Waller decided to add ear muffs to Winx's racing equipment to help her relax — she had always worn them during trackwork but previously had them removed in the parade ring before racing. This time she broke well and settled near the front of the main pack.
On the lead, Red Excitement set a quick pace and opened up a large lead of five lengths to the second place horse, who in turn was over five lengths in front of Winx. Turning into the straight, Winx moved into second but still had five lengths to make up on Red Excitement with m remaining. At the m mark, she still had three lengths to make up when Bowman dropped the whip.
Under a hand ride, Winx continued to close ground and pulled clear in the final strides to win by a length. He Red Excitement certainly made a race of it. He left no stone unturned. I was comfortable in the first quarter of the race but I could see what was happening so I started to make my way a bit closer from the metre mark but I still had to stay within myself I'm concentrating on just keeping her balanced but when she hit the afterburners at the metre mark today, I just can't explain the feeling.
On 16 September, Winx was entered in the George Main Stakes where she was installed as the heavy favorite. She broke well but soon settled near the back of the pack, well off the fast pace set by Red Excitement. She was not moving well and Bowman struck her with the whip with metres remaining. Rounding into the straight, she was still near the rear of the field, some eight lengths behind Red Excitement.
From mid-pack, Happy Clapper made his move near the top of the straight and took command of the race. Her time for the metre distance was a race record of Winx made her first start at Flemington Racecourse on 7 October in the Turnbull Stakes , causing "commuter chaos" as her fans headed to the track.
With m remaining, the crowd started clapping as she accelerated past her rivals. Despite never being urged and easing up before the wire, Winx completed the final m in On 28 October, Winx extended her winning streak to 22 when she won the Cox Plate for the third time, matching Kingston Town 's achievement. Before a sell out crowd, Winx broke well and raced in mid pack before starting her move on the final turn.
She struck the lead at the head of the straight and then withstood a late run from Humidor to win by half a length. Her time of It was her fifteenth Group 1 win, tying her with Black Caviar's Australian record. In fact, you never expect to win when you come to these races. That was a fair-dinkum Cox Plate out there today. Winx was given a layoff, then was originally scheduled to return to racing in February in the Apollo Stakes.
However, Bowman had been suspended for a previous racing infraction so Waller decided to delay Winx's return until Bowman would be available to ride her. She broke slowly and settled near the pack of the pack, then swung wide around the turn while gradually improving her position. Entering the straight, she moved to the lead and pulled away for a seven length victory. Bowman commented that the impressive win was due at least in part to the mare's preference for soft going, believing she was not at her best over the firm tracks she had encountered in four of her previous five wins.
A little bit of cut here this afternoon and we couldn't have asked for a better return to racing. On 24 March, Winx won the George Ryder Stakes for the third time, extending her winning streak to 24 — just shy of Black Caviar's Australian record of It was also her seventeenth Group 1 win, breaking the world record she had previously shared with John Henry.
In what Bowman called a tactical race, Winx settled near the back of the six-horse field then started to make up ground around the turn. Invincible Gem led early, stalked by Happy Clapper. Winx unleashed her run with m remaining, and gradually pulled away to win by three-quarters of a length from Happy Clapper.
After the George Ryder, Winx's connections discussed whether the mare would be shipped to England in June for the Royal Ascot racing festival. They ultimately decided against it as Waller was concerned about putting the mare through the stress of travel and quarantine for just one or two races. The filler is used when a horse's hoof wall becomes brittle, usually towards the end of the racing season.
It provides the farrier with more surface area for nailing on horseshoes. Bowman settled the mare in last place, with Gailo Chop setting a comfortable pace up front. With m remaining in the race, Winx moved alongside Happy Clapper at the back of the pack while Japanese runner Ambitious pushed Gailo Chop for the lead.
As the field rounded the turn, Happy Clapper made his move along the rail while Winx moved far wide for racing room. Waller commented, "We will never know how good she is because she just had the best horses in Australia take her on and beat them like that.
The win earned Winx a rating of , making her the top-rated horse in the world in the May update of the World's Best Racehorse Rankings. She also became only the second horse after Black Caviar to post a rating of at least in three consecutive years. Winx was turned out for a six-week spell and then resumed training with a goal to win her fourth Cox Plate. She also repeated as Australian champion middle-distance horse.
Winx made the first start of her seven-year-old campaign on 18 August in the Winx Stakes, which had been known as the Warwick Stakes before being renamed in her honour. She settled near the back of the field after breaking evenly, then improved her position around the turn to mid-pack.
She swung wide and entered the straight beside Kementari, who was unable to match her acceleration and could only finish fourth. Winx drew away from the field and won eased up by two lengths over Invictus Prince. Despite the comfortable win, her connections admitted to being worried at the top of the straight.
Bowman pointed out that the mare had not run recently at the sprint distance of 1, metres 7. Waller commented that instead of losing a step with age, Winx was possibly still improving. Chief steward Marc van Gestel agreed. She looked amazing and will improve off this run.
I think they will be chasing her for the rest of the spring. Winx established several milestones in winning the race. She set an Australasian record by extending her winning streak to 26, bypassing Black Caviar who won 25 races in an undefeated career. The two longest winning streaks are by Camarero 56 successive wins in restricted company in Puerto Rico and Hungarian mare Kincsem 54 wins while undefeated.
She also extended her world record to 19 Group 1 wins, while becoming the first seven-year-old mare to win a Group 1 since Makybe Diva. On 15 September, Winx won the George Main Stakes for the third time, extending her win streak to 27 and her Group 1 win count to The favourite in a field of seven, she as usual galloped near the back of the pack early then started her move with m remaining before accelerating as they entered the straight. For several strides, she failed to make up ground on Le Romain, who had accelerated at roughly the same time.
Winx then picked up her stride rate and drew clear, winning by four lengths. Bowman said that Winx now knows what she needs to do to win. Her main rivals in the field of ten were Youngstar winner of the Queensland Oaks and Grunt with two Group 1 wins. Winx settled at the back of the pack where she became boxed in by horses in front and to her outside. The early pace was slow, meaning the field remained tightly packed.
As they entered the straight, the pace picked up but Winx was still in ninth place and lacked racing room. Bowman remained calm, waiting for a gap to open. When it did, Winx accelerated through and rapidly made up ground, then moved by Youngstar to win by three-quarters of a length. The fractional times for the race were noteworthy: after running the first m in She ran the final m in an exceptional time of Waller credited the long straight of Flemington for allowing the mare to "get through her gears".
On 27 October, Winx was entered in the Cox Plate against seven other horses, including multiple Group 1 winner Benbatl from Britain and old rival Humidor, who had finished just behind Winx in the running of the race. This time, Winx broke well and stayed in close contact with the leading group until the pace picked up, at which time she settled into fifth place.
Rounding the tight final turn into the short home straight at Moonee Valley , Benbatl made his move to take the lead. Winx responded by swinging wide and then drew off to win by two lengths over Benbatl, with Humidor closing late to finish third.
Waller had been somewhat concerned in the early part of the race, worried about her possibly being forced too wide or being too far back on a track that had not proved favourable to closers in earlier races. After the Cox Plate, Winx was turned out for a spell while her connections considered if she should be retired. On 16 February, Winx on won the Group 2 Apollo Stakes for a record third time, beating second favourite Happy Clapper by over two lengths and stablemate Egg Tart into third place.
It was her 30th consecutive win. The time of For the first time in his career, Happy Clapper took the lead early  and held it for most of the race, with a margin over Winx of 7 lengths at the m mark.
It looked as though he might pull off an upset, but he was chased down late in the straight by Winx and ran second to her again. There was no way Happy Clapper could sustain that speed, and I knew that when she balanced up, she would have the energy required to reel him in. It was the 31st consecutive win for Winx, her 23rd Group 1 win, and her fourth Chipping Norton win. On 23 March, Winx won the George Ryder Stakes over heavy ground in what was expected to be her final start at Rosehill; her home and training track.
All seven rivals had never raced her and none was given a serious chance by the bettors. Winx was bet down to her lowest-ever odds of 1. She settled at the back of the pack while Bowman steered her wide. Because she works on the track she is very comfortable and has a lot of confidence on it. I think that helps her to perform. Winx triumphed in her last-ever start in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes on 13 April , starting in the outside barrier and scoring a third successive victory, which matched the feats of Carbine and David Source: Racenet, Racing.
On 17 May , it was announced that Winx would be inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame , becoming only the third horse after Sunline and Black Caviar to be so honored while still in training. The Australian Turf Club announced on 25 October that the Warwick Stakes, which Winx won in both and , would be renamed in her honour.
Previously a Group 2 race, it was upgraded to Group 1 status after Winx's win. On 18 August , Winx won this race and become only the second horse in history after Black Caviar to win a race named in its honour. On 2 December , it was announced that Winx had won the Secretariat Vox Populi Award , earning top votes from online racing fans in a record 60 countries. In the World's Best Racehorse Rankings , Winx was named joint best racehorse in the world alongside Cracksman with a rating of In May , it was announced that the new grand stand currently being built at Randwick Racecourse would be named the Winx Stand in her honour.
It should be finished construction by late She joined Makybe Diva and Black Caviar in winning this prestigious award. Winx was retired to broodmare duty for the breeding season, which in Australia begins in September. Winx is inbred 5 x 5 to Natalma , meaning Natalma appears twice in the fifth generation of Winx's pedigree as the dam of both Raise the Standard and Northern Dancer.

When Drew Bledsoe got hurt, in came Tom Brady. Wally Pipp was replaced by Lou Gehrig. Phil Fulmer less elegantly for Johnny Majors. The year-old native of Guatemala has been establishing himself as a reliable, professional jockey around southern California. The race was pushed back a week because of the recent glut of positive COVID tests this month in the southern California jockey colony. But 6-year-old turf specialist Sharp Samurai was indeed entered for what will be his first race on dirt in more than three years.
I was surprised. Maybe he should not have been. On his third try to establish himself in southern California, Cedillo is coming off a career year. It continued into his finishing second in the jockey standings during the Santa Anita meet that ran from December to June — minus a pause for the pandemic.
Is he sharp, or does he need a little help when he breaks from the gate? It is not like Cedillo can turn to Baffert to find out anything beyond what he has seen on race videos. It may not be a glorified workout for Maximum Security , even if he is a short-priced favorite on the morning line. Baffert has entered a speed horse — restricted-stakes winner Ax Man — to keep him company early in the race. Twice a first-place finisher in graded stakes, Midcourt may stalk the pace for John Shirreffs.
Maximum Security is the clear class of the race, putting that much more pressure on Cedillo. But he has ridden three Grade 1 victories since last fall, most notably on the late Mongolian Groom at odds of in the Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita. We have to work really hard to make money to eat for one day.
Because here I have a really good chance to work and make money and to help the family. If the pandemic is resolved by then, Cedillo hopes to reunite with his mother, his father and his two sisters next year. So he is grateful to have this chance — this one chance. That was two summers ago. Vanderbilt Handicap. The six furlongs are the very distance at which Whitmore has won his last two starts, including an Oaklawn Park Grade 3 in April.
