Prince Ahmed bin Salman dead
The racing world was shocked Monday by the untimely death of the 
head of Thoroughbred Corporation.  Only weeks after winning the 
Kentucky Derby and Preakness, he suffered a fatal heart attack.


Ladies' Weekend at Saratoga
Opening weekend will feature 3 graded stakes for the fillies with
the Diana on the turf, the Test for the 3-year-olds, and the Go For
Wand for the older fillies and mares.  Check back over the weekend
for results and photos.

Prince of Wales Stakes
Local hero Le Cinquieme Essai thrilled the Fort Erie fans by 
winning their biggest race of the year and the second leg of 
Canada's Triple Crown. Get details, charts, and photos here!

Breeders' Cup Tickets and Seating
Since there is no general admission this year, if you want to 
go to the Breeders' Cup at Arlington, you better have a ticket.  
There are still some left so find out how to get yours.

Breeders' Cup Winners Photo Gallery
Now updated and expanded to include a photo or link to a photo for 
every winner plus charts for all the races.


Prince Ahmed Salman dies
SHELLY440 writes, "I can't believe it!  I am shocked! Shocked and 
saddened. Although I have never been a big fan of the Prince, he did 
own my beloved Point Given. May he rest in peace."  JOANNAV3 replied, "What....a.....shock! I didn't know much about him, but I was very 
impressed with how he included Espinoza in all the celebrating and 
congratulations after the Derby. Baffert tends to ignore the jockeys, 
except for a pat or smile. The Prince almost pulled Espinoza off War 
Emblem, he hugged him so hard."

Hallowed Dreams possibly retired
SHELLY440 writes, "Thank Goodness for those of you lucky people who 
were fortunate enough to see her race in person. I hope that she 
will be happy but I will certainly miss her."  (articles posted later
online say she may come back in the fall)
