Airoforce (Colonel John - Chocolate Pop, by Cuvee) was bought for $12,000 by Jeff Jeans of Texas. He will race again if he clears the veterinarian. If not, Jeans plans to stand him in Indiana or Louisiana.
Airoforce won the Gr.II Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes and Gr.III Bourbon Stakes as a juvenile, and finished second in the Gr.I Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. As a sophomore, he finished second in the Gr.II Hall of Fame Stakes and Gr.III Penn Mile. He holds a record of 12: 3-3-0 with earnings of $679,130.
I couldn’t leave this list completed without a post in memorial to the glittering accomplishments of the tragic Go For Wand. With seven Grade I wins under her belt, she never finished worse than second place. As a Breeder’s Cup Juvenile winner, she earned the 1989 Eclipse Award for Outstanding Two-Year-Old Filly, and later for Three-Year-Old fillies. She was just a good horse, extinguished far too soon.
Mendelssohn dominated the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf
The little brother to Beholder took all the early money and rewarded his backers with an impressive performance. In a race that looked as wide-open as can be, Mendellsohn went right up towards the front, swooped up around pace setter Sands of Mali and was a length clear under the wire.
Untamed Domain wound through traffic from next-to-last to get up for second by a head over Voting Control.
Rushing Fall wins the Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf
The brilliant daughter of More Than Ready had every one comparing her to Lady Eli after her impressive romp at the Breeders Cup. Despite breaking from the outside and having to sit closer to the pace than she prefers, Rushing Fall was still much the best over a deep international field.
Best Performance put in a solid effort and grabbed second – her fifth straight second place finish.
September put in a heckofa rally at the end to get up for third after completely missing the break.
Post-time favorite Happily had an unlucky trip and faded to last after needing to steady multiple times.

Songbird’s brilliant career began with an 11 race win streak that ended with a gallant nose defeat to future hall of famer Beholder at the Breeders’ Cup. She was the Eclipse Champion 2yo Filly & 3yo Filly.

She was a G1 winner at 2, 3 and 4.
Her dam was G2 placed and her half sister Wide Range is the dam of G3 winner Mico Margarita. She’s from the same family of Friel’s for Real.
She sold to Mandy Pope, joining what must be the most expensive broodmare band’s in the country; she joins fillies like Havre de Grace, Unrivaled Belle and Groupie Doll.
