   They went slow and finished in a bunch at the end of Sunday’s G1 Prix de Diane Longines at Chantilly, but Samuel de Barros’s Channel (Ire) (Nathaniel {Ire}) was in the right place throughout to pull off a minor upset at 9-1. Always handily placed by Pierre-Charles Boudot tracking the leading pair Platane (GB) (Le Havre {Ire}) and Wonderment (Ire) (Camelot {GB}), the May 17 course-and-distance conditions winner was sent to the front with two furlongs remaining and gamely saw off the G1 Poule d’Essai des Pouliches runner-up Commes (Fr) (Le Havre {Ire}) to prevail by a head, with Grand Glory (GB) (Olympic Glory {Ire}) the best closer a half length away in third. ‘TDN Rising Star’ and 6-4 favourite Siyarafina (Fr) (Pivotal {GB}) held every chance but could only finish sixth with possibly stamina the main issue.

Horse deaths in U.S. racing. Poor prize money in the UK. Declining attendances in Ireland. Finding good news in horse racing globally right now is like getting lightning in a bottle. Our sport needs a stiff drink. The solution might be whiskey in the jar.

In the same way that horse racing once dominated the sporting landscape, Irish whiskey was once the most popular spirit in the world. But, suddenly within years, as Scottish whisky (scotch) flourished, Irish whiskey lost its main customers–America due to Prohibition and Britain due to the Irish War of Independence. David Redvers warning this week that racing may be ‘teetering on the edge of oblivion’ due to failure to diversify racehorse ownership could have also been applied to Irish distillers’ failure to diversify a century ago. Even as Ireland gained its independence and Prohibition ended, Irish distillers’...

The lightly raced Hard Legacy (Hard Spun) handily disposed of a competitive field of 10 other fillies to register her (and her trainer’s) first stakes win in the GIII Regret S., a race named for the 1915 Kentucky Derby winner, the first of three fillies to win the storied race under the Twin Spires. Breaking from the five hole, Hard Legacy had a smooth start and very briefly sat behind Winter Sunset before quickly overtaking that rival just after the first quarter. After reasonable fractions of :23.62 and :48.06 with her ears pricked, she was let loose on the turn with a gritty Winter Sunset glued to her flank.

Hard Legacy brushed off Winter Sunset in the stretch, never letting her closer than a half-length, bounding under the wire to reward trainer Norm Casse with the first stakes win of his career. Casse, a son of and former assistant to Mark Casse, sent out his first runner 16 months ago. He also saddled fourth-place finisher Belle Laura (...

Seeking the Soul (Perfect Soul {Ire}) came charging down the stretch to fight past a game ‘TDN Rising Star’ Quip (Distorted Humor) by a neck in Saturday evening’s GII Stephen Foster S., a ‘Win and You’re In’ for the GI Breeders’ Cup Classic, beneath the lights at Churchill Downs.

The hard-knocking 6-year-old, off at odds of 9-2, raced in some traffic covered up while placed within striking distance in sixth as Tom’s d’Etat (Smart Strike) narrowly led Quip through easy fractions of :24.60 and :49.43. Locked and loaded on the far turn, John Velazquez threaded the needle as they straightened and Seeking the Soul punched home nicely to grind down Quip for a narrow decision. Tom’s d’Etat stayed on for third. Favored Gift Box (Twirling Candy) was fourth after a wide trip.

‘TDN Rising Star’ Elate (Medaglia d’Oro) enjoyed a bang up season at three, winning four stakes, including two at the Grade I level–the 10-furlong GI Alabama S. and Beldame Invitational–in addition to finishing a close-up second in the GI Coaching Club American Oaks. After rounding out the year with a fourth behind champion Forever Unbridled (Unbridled’s Song) in the GI Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Del Mar, she went on a seven-month hiatus before resuming with professional come-from-behind victory in the 10-furlong GII Delaware H. in July. A neck behind Classic-winning champion Abel Tasman (Quality Road) in the GI Personal Ensign S. at Saratoga in August, she was duly sent to the sidelines for the remainder of the season. Given plenty of time to return, the dark bay marked her 2019 debut with a second behind the classy recent GI Ogden Phipps heroine Midnight Bisou (Midnight Lute) in the GII Azeri S. at Oaklawn Mar. 16 before finishing third to that rival in the...

Mr. Money (Goldencents), a breakout winner of the GIII Pat Day Mile S. on the GI Kentucky Derby undercard, followed up with another visually impressive score here.

The handsome bay fired a five-furlong bullet in :59 4/5 (1/17) beneath the Twin Spires May 31 and was heavily favored to make it two straight. He broke well and was placed in a tracking second as Knicks Go (Paynter) showed the way through fractions of :24.19 and :47.80. Always traveling nicely beneath Gabriel Saez, the Allied Racing Stable colorbearer gained command leaving the quarter pole and leveled off nicely down the lane, reporting home as a much-the-best winner in a sharp final clocking.
