HRT Highlights #62

2023 Yasuda Kinen

While many trainers will be looking at how to prepare their horses for the Breeders Cup, Japanese trainer Toru Hayashi only has to figure out which race he wants Songline to run.  After winning the Victoria MIle in May which included a spot in the BC Filly & Mare Turf, the 5 year old mare defeated a stellar field to take the Yasuda Kinen and earned a spot in the BC Mile.  The connections have announced that the mile is their preferred race.  Serifos finished second and favored Schnel My-ster was third   

2023 Epsom Derby

Auguste Rodin came into the Epsom Derby off a dismal performance in the 2000 Guineas but that did not deter trainer Aiden O’Brien and he was rewarded with his 9th Derby victory. Ryan Moore was aboard for his third win in the race. King of Steel finished 2nd and White Birch was 3rd.  The G1 Irish Derby is next up for the highly regarded colt.

2023 Arlington Stakes

7 year old Set Piece took the G3 Arlington Stakes for trainer Brad Cox and then Mission of Joy had a career best performance to take the G3 Regret for Mark Casse.
