I am finally home again - and have internet again.
My family and I helped my grandmother, who lives in Germany, as she moved from her apartment back in her old house over the weekend. And of course she moved the weekend where big races were held, including the “Super Saturday”-races at Belmont and many races here in Europe.The winners of some of the races will be posted on my blog tomorrow.
Today, 30 September 2014, came the news that Grosser Preis Von Baden winner Ivanhowe (photo) will have William Buick on board for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp, 5 October 2014, and not his Baden-Baden partner Filip Minarik.

Stonestreet Farm’s My Miss Aurelia (left) and Dreaming Of Julia have both been retired, and will join Stonestreet’s broodmare band.
Announced on 24 September 2014.

My Miss Aurelia, foaled in 2009, is a daughter of Smart Strike and My Miss Storm Cat, won the 2011 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes, Frizette Stakes and the Adirondack Stakes at two, which resulted in 2011 American Champion Two-year-old Filly.

At three she won the Cotillion Stakes over Alabama Stakes winner Questing, and finished second in the Breeders’ Cup Ladies Classic.
In the 2014 Ballerina Stakes she was second after a 16-month layoff.

Prior to her two final starts, she was owned in partnership with George Bolton.

Dreaming Of Julia, Stonestreet home-bred daughter of A.P. Indy and Dream Rush, was foaled in 2010.

She edged out My Happy Face in the Frizette Stakes in 2012, and went on to win the Gulfstream Park Oaks in 2013 by an amazing 21 3/4 lengths.

Her last start came in the 2013 Mother Goose Stakes, in which she ran second to Close Hatches.

“My Miss Aurelia and Dreaming of Julia gave Barbara [Banke, owner] and her family some wonderfully exciting days and owe us nothing … They are back at the farm where they were born. Both are in great shape and will be bred in the spring,”
said Stonestreet spokesperson Gemma Freeman.

Happy and long retirements, lovely girls! <3
