  • Godolphin's Antipathy, third in the Phipps at 30-1, bounced back to win the Shuvee Handicap (gr. III) by two lengths in the mud on July 27 at Saratoga, defeating Stanwyck, who also was entered in the Personal Ensign. The Shuvee was run at the Personal Ensign's 1 1/8-mile distance.



    "We need some racing luck or her to run her 'A' race (to win the Personal Ensign)," said Kiaran McLaughlin. "It's a tough group, but we're happy to be in there, and we'll see how it goes. Hopefully, we'll have a good day. I think she [belongs among the best in the division]. She missed by only a half-length in the Phipps and came back and won."



    Irad Ortiz, Jr. will ride Antipathy, the 5-1 third choice.

    Jump Start has one hell of a pedigree. AP Indy on top and Storm Cat on the bottom, he has both foundation sires in his pedigree, not to mention he looks like his daddy (AP Indy).

    In his conformation photo you will see his injury he sustained while racing that lead to his retirement. Hes lucky to be alive. He only ran 5 times at age 2 before his career ending injury, who knows how good of a racehorse he could of been, but he sure has a great start to the breeding industry.

    I have a question about pensioned stallions like AP Indy. Do they remain stallions (or are they gelded) and can they be in company of other horses or kept separate as before?

    Pensioned stallions are not gelded, it would serve no purpose. A stallion is pensioned for one predominant reason: declining fertility or infertility. They continue to live their lives as they always have, the only difference being that they no longer breed. Indy, for example, and all other pensioned stallions at Lane's End are treated just like the stallions that are still breeding: same stall they've always had, same pasture they've been in, etc. They are all pastured alone, with a huge amount of space to enjoy

    Tough life, ain't it?

    Hahaha you said it! I know I was jealous the whole time we were touring Lane's End, the barns are waaaaay cleaner than my house and the scenery is to die for. Those are some lucky Thoroughbreds!

    The way he looked this year, it's so hard to believe that he's as old as he is. Barring something unexpected, I'm sure you'll see him :-) His pasture is right up front, across from the main entrance to the stallion barn, and he's one of only a couple horses that the guide will take out of pasture to stand for us gawking fans to drool over and take pics. No touching, unfortunately, unless you're sneaky after the tour ends...not to say I was... ;-)
