When the Group One Champion Stakes was about to be run on October 15, there was hardly a punter who would bet against Baaeed. It was considered Baaeed’s race to lose, and lose he did. In fact, he came in fourth. The surprising winner was the long shot Bay Bridge, who became an instant millionaire.
Nashwa, this year’s three-year-old super filly, winner of multiple Group 1 races, with the ability to both come from behind (dead last to first with less than two furlongs left) and go gate-to-wire, represents a stunning cross for the stellar sire Frankel. Like his biggest earner and multiple Group 1 winner Cracksman, she is out of a Pivotal mare, and this cross earns an 8.38 average earnings index, with 38 such foals being represented by 17 winners (45%) from 27 starters.
The pedigree of the magnificent Baaeed, winner of ten of eleven starts (his heartbreaking third to Bay Bridge in the Group One Champion S. on October 15 strained credulity), most recently the Group One Juddmonte International, is, on the surface, the epitome of simplicity. It is based on the tried and true cross of sons and daughters of Northern Dancer, on sons and daughters of Mr. Prospector.
Finally, top flight racing returned to Europe, with English and Irish racing beginning, and with France leading the way. On Monday, June 1, Victor Ludorum won the Group 1 Poule d’Essais des Poulins, making him a leading contender for classic races for the rest of this bizarre 2020 racing season.
