DEAUVILLE, France–Henri Bozo’s Ecurie des Monceaux spent 100,000gns on the one-time winner Platonic (Ire) (Zafonic) at Tattersalls December in 2004, and that has proven money extremely well spent, with a quickfire seven-figure sale-topping double from her daughters at Arqana on Sunday night just the latest achievement from the mare’s dynasty.

First through the ring was lot 147, a Galileo (Ire) colt who is the first foal out of Prudente (Ire) (Dansili {GB}), a winner at Chantilly in 2017 for Monceaux and Lady O’Reilly’s Skymarc Farm and trainer Alain de Royer Dupre. The colt was knocked down to Japanese trainer Mitsu Nakauchida for €1.5 million.

There was barely time for the dust to settle on the sale’s first millionaire when, moments later, his Dubawi filly cousin out of Prudenzia (Ire) (Dansili {GB}) (...

Fox Hill Farms’ Omaha Beach (War Front), forced to miss a return to the races in next Sunday’s Shared Belief S. at Del Mar due to illness, will now be aimed at the Sept. 28 GI Awesome Again S. at Santa Anita.

“The good news is that his bloodwork looks good, which means that it’s a virus and not infectious,” trainer Richard Mandella said of Omaha Beach. “He and United are in the same boat. They’ll both be back in a week, give or take a few days.”

Omaha Beach, last seen winning the GI Arkansas Derby, was the morning-line favorite before being scratched from the GI Kentucky Derby.

Stablemate United (Giant’s Causeway) was forced to miss Saturday’s GII Del Mar H. with the same illness. The 4-year-old will now be pointed at the Sept. 28 GII John Henry S.

Mandella was also forced to scratch Bombard (War Front) from Sunday’s GII Del Mar Mile with a bruised foot.

“No big deal, he’ll get over it,” Mandella said.

Julio Correa became the first apprentice jockey in six years to win a riding title at Laurel Park, finishing the 43-day summer meet with 35 wins. Correa won four races on Sunday’s closing-day card to better Trevor McCarthy–who had won four consecutive Maryland titles–by five races.

“I have to thank God first of all and all the trainers and owners and my agent for taking care of me and supporting me during the summer meet,” Correa, a 25-year-old native of Puerto Rico, said. “I’m really happy. I worked hard to make it happen, and it’s good for my career.”

Leading all apprentice riders in the country with 86 victories, Correa had eight multi-win days during the summer meet, including hat tricks July 18 and Aug. 8. He also finished first in mounts (176) and second with more than $900,000 in purse earnings.

“There’s a lot of great jockeys here, maybe the best jockeys in the Mid-Atlantic,” Correa said. “It’s really tough for me. I’m a bug boy. To beat Trevor, he’s a...

STELLAR SOUND (f, 2, Tapit–Siren Serenade, by Unbridled’s Song), the less-fancied of a pair of Tapit fillies making their respective debuts for Don Alberto Stable, covered all the ground but still fought on gamely late to prevail in Sunday’s opener from Del Mar. Away last and breaking outwardly from her wide draw, the homebred had to be asked for more early by Drayden Van Dyke and soon tugged her way up into third while still far out into the track as fellow Don Alberto colorbearer Matera (Tapit)–a $1.4-million half-sister to Liam’s Map trained by Jerry Hollendorfer and the 3-5 favorite–showed the way. Stellar Sound ranged up to join Matera and pace presser Buyer’s Remorse (Liam’s Map) into a :46.13 half, and Matera soon dropped back as the other two were locked in battle past the quarter pole.

We’re approaching the 10-week mark to the GI Breeders’ Cup Classic. Want a glimpse at the divisional kingpins? Look to the left–as in Left Coast.

But don’t fix your gaze on California-based older horses for too long. This coming Saturday’s GI Runhappy Travers S. could be a big coming-out party for an East Coast 3-year-old, and an emphatic Saratoga emergence would add depth to a cast of Classic characters that right now is intriguing, but lacking a scare-away-the-competition leader.

Higher Power (Medaglia d’Oro) wasn’t on too many Breeders’ Cup threat lists going into last Saturday. But he sure is now after a thoroughly professional dismantling of the GI TVG Pacific Classic field at 9-1 odds that seemed to fit considering the 4-year-old had never won a stakes race.

Making his fourth start for new connections after being bought for $250,000 at the Keeneland April racing age sale, Higher Power broke running in the Pacific Classic and hounded...

MRS. DANVERS (f, 2, Tapit–Gracie Square, by Awesome Again)blew the break but made a big late move to fill out the trifecta when favored on debut here July 19, and entered this second attempt with plenty more buzz behind her to go off at a tick under even-money. The grey traveled in fourth early under a tight Joel Rosario hold as Finite (Munnings), who finished ahead of the favorite by a nose last time, showed the way through splits of :22.27 and :45.27. Switched out for clear sailing at the top of the lane, Mrs. Danvers took a few green strides, but soon leveled off and inhaled the leader inside the sixteenth pole to prevail by 1 1/4 lengths with what appeared like further room to improve and mature. Finite was another five lengths clear of $400,000 yearling buy Abilene Trail (Curlin), who was...

Rupp Racing’s Owendale (Into Mischief) completed preparations for the Aug. 24 GI Runhappy Travers S. with a four-furlong drill in :48.80 (24/90) at Churchill Downs Saturday.

“Our horse is doing really well,” trainer Brad Cox said Sunday. “He breezed great yesterday at Churchill and galloped out well and looked great this morning. He is coming into the race as well as we could ask or expect. He’s on top of his game. He will gallop out on the track Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.”

Owendale won the Apr. 13 GIII Stonestreet Lexington S. before a third-place effort in the GI Preakness S. He will be stretching out to 1 1/4 miles in the Travers following a win in the nine-furlong GIII Ohio Derby June 22.

“He runs like he is a mile and a quarter horse,” Cox said. “If it is a good set up, it is possible. The numbers suggest our horse is a bit faster or just as fast any of these. If he can run his Preakness race or the Lexington race, he is going to be...

Amalfi Sunrise (Constitution), winner of the Aug. 3 GII Sorrento S., has been taken out of training and will miss an expected start in the Aug. 31 GI Del Mar Debutante as she undergoes diagnostic tests this coming week.

“We’ll know more by Tuesday,” trainer Simon Callaghan said while confirming a story first reported by Daily Racing Form which said the 2-year-old filly was sore behind.

Owned by Doug Branham and Marsha Naify, Amalfi Sunrise was tabbed a ‘TDN Rising Star’ following her debut win at Santa Anita June 23. She romped home by a front-running six lengths in the Sorrento and most recently worked four furlongs in :48.80 at Del Mar Aug. 12.

Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners and Gainesway Stable’s Sharing (Speightstown) seemed a bit more suited to the grass on paper given that her dam upended the 2010 GI Breeders’ Cup F/M Turf and considering her fast-finishing debut second came sprinting on the infield here July 21, but the chestnut had no trouble handling the Saratoga main track Sunday while garnering the ‘TDN Rising Star’ distinction. Off at 5-2 facing a solid-looking field that had held together surprisingly well considering the race was rained off the turf, Sharing was part of a three-way pace procession while perched widest through splits of :23.71 and :46.99. She emerged with a clear advantage heading for home despite turning a bit wide into the stretch, and responded willingly to Manny Franco’s encouragement at the head of the lane to quickly spurt clear by about six lengths, stopping the clock in 1:24.32 for seven panels. Good Shabbos (Munnings), a two-time runner-up on the dirt and the 9-5...

Narrowly denied in the Morny, Frankie Dettori quickly compensated as he steered the errant TDN Rising Star Coronet (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) to a second career prestige victory in Sunday’s G1 Darley Prix Jean Romanet at Deauville. Travelling easily under cover in a share of third early, Denford Stud’s G1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud winner was sent to the front with 300 metres remaining where she began to hang markedly left. Always in command despite her diagonal path, the 17-10 favourite held a 3/4-of-a-length margin over With You (GB) (Dansili {GB}) at the line, with Red Tea (GB) (Sakhee) upgrading her profile again 1 3/4 lengths away in third. “This is the sharpest trip for her and she has that weird way of running with her head at an angle, but that’s her,” trainer John Gosden said. “I think she was looking for the better ground there! Hopefully she’ll have one more run, probably in the [Oct. 19 G1 QIPCO British Champions] Fillies...
