    American Oaks results:

    7 Ticker Tape (GB) (Desormeaux, K.J.) 121 BL 7 5-1 1/2 4-1 4-1 1/2 2-1/2 1-2 1-1 12.00

    6 Dance in the Mood (JPN) (Take, Y.) 121 6 2-1 3-1 3-Head 3-Head 3-2 1/2 2-2 1.40*

    4 Hollywood Story

    10 Western Hemisphere

    5 Amorama (FR)

    2 Mambo Slew

    3 Boulevardofdreams (NZ)

    11 Eternal Melody (NZ)

    1 Misty Heights (GB)

    9 Western Ransom 20.40

    13 Steel Princess (IRE)

    12 Lovely Rafaela

    8 French Lady (NZ)

    I was very disappointed Dance in the Mood lost, because she is a daughter of Sunday Silence and I wanted to prove that his offspring can run and win outside of Japan. Her jockey gave her a bad ride, and it didn't help that she was rank throughout the race.

    Rock Hard Ten won the Swaps, but The Cliff's Edge finished second to Medallist (trained by Jerkens).

    Cliff's Edge will run in the Jim Dandy at Saratoga as a prep for the Travers there.

    RHT's trainer and company always thought he had a lot of talent but was very inexperienced. The classic races this fall will be quite interesting. Go Smarty!

    Rock Hard Ten reminds me of Strode's Creek, another huge, Baby Huey-like horse who never quite lived up to his billing. He won a few big races here and there, but he was always a bit of a klutz.

    I remember Strodes Creek. He used to stand at Stone Farm in Kentucky. He looked like a Halo, but I hope he didn't have the evil Halo temper.

    Free House died-he was being bathed, and feeling good, he reared up and fell over, striking his head on the ground, which broke his skull. That's the detail I got off a message board from people with connections to the stallion.

    Oh, NO!! Free was one of my all-time favorite horses. I remember him in the Triple Crown races where he shared top billing with Silver Charm and Touch Gold. I can still see him in the stretch, alternately watching 'Charm and the crowd.

    A sad day, indeed.

    Ashado turned the tables on Stellar Jayne in the 1.25 mile Coaching Club American Oaks on a muddy track at Belmont this past Saturday. Stellar Jayne was 2nd some 4.5 lengths back. Each filly has won one leg of the filly Triple Tiara. The third and deciding leg will be the 1.25 mile Alabama at Saratoga on August 21st. Ashado's victory in the CCAO at that same distance probably gives her the edge.

    This weekend was a bad one for jockeys.

    Alex Solis had a bad accident when his mount clipped heels with another horse and went down (the horse was OK). Solis has a fractured vertebra and broken ribs, and may need surgery to stabilize his back. There is no paralysis, but he will be out of action for at least 3 months, maybe longer.

    Jose Santos broke his arm in a paddock accident at Belmont, and he will probably miss at least half of the Saratoga meeting.
