Desert party has party

Desert Party(Street Cry) won the UAE Guineas today over his stablemate Vineyard haven. He swept past Vineyard haven and Regal Ransom to win by 4 1/2 lengths under Frankie Dettori. Vineyard haven raced gamely but faded in midstretch to finish fourth, beat 6 1/2 lengths. Desert Party ran the 7.96 furlong race in 1:37.62.

Break water edison worked five furlongs in 1:00 on a fast dirt track at Gulfstream. He is looking to improve and redeem himself after a last place finish in the Hutcheson Stakes."Besides the bad performance, everything has gone fine," Kimmel said. "He looks well. He's trained well. He just didn't run well. I thought today's breeze was great. I really liked the last quarter," Kimmel said. "He even had to go wide at one point because the two of them came up on another horse, and Georgie had to take him pretty well out there on the track." The Fountain of Youth will be his next race. He was worked in company with four year old Freedom Bay.

Trainer Larry Jones was pleased with the last work from Old fashioned. Here's what he had to say about the gray colt.
"He's ready to go," Jones reported. "He acted like there was nothing to it. He came back to the barn and barely was blowing and didn't drink but a gallon of water.
We will gallop a mile or mile and a half on Friday, and then Saturday and Sunday give him an easy five-eighths gallop," he added. "We are excited and ready. Old Fashioned is a neat horse. It's hard not to love him. Bringing him up here from Fair Grounds it was just me and him, it was bonding time. It was like I will focus on you, and you will focus on me."

Have a great night everyone!
