It was made official that the American crack FLIGHTLINE will go as a stallion of the prestigious Lane's End Farm at the end of his track campaign. Spokesmen for the breeding establishment reported that it will be owned by a Union.
And speaking of Lane's End Farm, last night at the start of the famous September yearling auctions at Keeneland in which 9 horses reached 7 figures, his flag stallion QUALITY ROAD was the standout. Top price $2,500,000 was for a son of QUALITY ROAD out of TRUE FEELING, by LATENT HEAT, consigned by Stonehaven Steadings was acquired by Talla Racing, Woodford Racing and West Point Thoroughbreds, through agent LEB represented by David Ingordo, colt same maternal line of from LOOKIN AT LUCKY, Champion at 2 and 3 years old, with 9 wins and $3,307,278 and from WAIT A WHILE, Three-year-old Champion, winner of 12 and more than 2 million dollars.

ELDAR ELDAROV with David Egan and trained by Roger Varian gave another resounding victory to his father the giant DUBAWI by winning the Cazoo St. Leger G1 in Doncaster, England, on Sunday at 2921 meters, third in the English Triple Crown, the race that did not they wanted to race with their maternal grandfather SEA THE STARS, who in my opinion won it, to become triple crowned. With a 5-4 campaign, his grandmother is ALBANOVA, the same grandmother of the sensational ALPINISTA tordilla, 24-9, 8 classics won, 5 G1: 3 in Germany and the other 2 in France and England. Lots of stamina everywhere.
Spectacular chestnut KYPRIOS to win the Irish St. Leger G1, in 14 furlongs at Curragh, maintaining his undefeated this year in 5 starts. He is 9-7 overall and has won 3 consecutive G1's from him in his last 3 starts. With the most effective cross in recent times, GALILEO out of dam by DANEHILL, gave another classic victory in the week to the very successful duo of Aidan O'Brien and Ryan Moore.
The Irish LUXEMBOURG in a close final won the Irish Champion Stakes G1 in 2000 meters on Saturday at Leopardstown with a million euros in prize money and now has 5 wins in a campaign of 6 appearances. Son of CAMELOT narrowly prevailed over ONESTO son of FRANKEL, leaving the double winner G1 VADENI in the third place and MISHRIFF in the fourth place, who did not miss a dance and again ran well.
In the USA, the undefeated two-year-old CAVE ROCK is the 25th stake winner of LA LUPA nos with more than 45% stakes winners. He was fabulous this Sunday at Del Mar achieving such distinction in his second performance by winning the Del Mar Futurity G1 at 1400 meters with a 96 Speed Rating. A son of ARROGATE sold for $550,000 at the Keeneland Yearling Sales, he is owned by Michael Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman. He was bred in Kentucky by Anne and Ronnie Sheffer Racing LLC. Bob Baffert trains and his rider is the Mexican Juan Hernández… And continuing with the two-year-olds, BAYERN's flute sounded as a stallion with his son SPEED BOAT BEACH, who led a Baffert trifecta right there in Del Mar, on Saturday, making his debut on time record in 1100 meters, 61”4, on the expensive HEJAZI who has come 2nd in his 2 performances but looking very good, giving me the impression that now is when he can show much more.
Last week from 10-9 in La Rinconada here in MUNDO HIPICO from the inscriptions with 5 first favorite winners, 2 seconds and 2 third. The first favorite for whom we have received the most congratulations is that of MISS BUENA VISTA, that of Rubén Lanz, winner in the fourth valid with Abraím Montes, of the paraguaneros colors of Edgar Ruiz, especially because in that race the vast majority leaned towards Queen strawberry.
Very happy Goyito Matheus for the double in the 5 and 6 of his pupil the jockey Kelvin Aray. Others who doubled in the valid ones were Stud La Vieja and Ricardo Rosillo, even winning the maximum batch of the day with TRAGO AMARGO, the son of Marital Asset from Haras La Primavera. By the way, the CICLON dapple that repeated uploaded in another good demonstration is operated on the carpus by Dr. Carlos Larrazabal. Another triumph for MY SOULING MATE, the mare from La Alhambra that we sold at auction to Azatlan, another for José Gregorio Querales.
