history has been made!
Kingman, ridden by regular jockey James Doyle, showed his class once again, this time on soft ground at Deauville in the Prix du Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard - Jacques le Marois, his fourth Group 1 of the summer, and his second race against open-age company.
17 August 2014.
Goldikova's little brother Anodin with Olivier Peslier second, Olympic Glory with Frankie Dettori third, Rizeena with Ryan Moore fourth, and Red Dubawi with Eddy Hardouin fifth.
Trainer John Gosden said after the race:
"It was [Kingman’s owner] Prince Khalid’s decision to run which made it pretty easy for me … I thought he quickened well because it’s very difficult to get out of this ground. He wasn’t in love with the ground but his class showed. He’s got a wonderful mind, he came back here and stood, almost went to sleep. He wasn’t bothered by anything. The jockey said they were going so slow that he just wanted to go. He wasn’t fighting he just thought ‘when can I get on with it.”

It’s clear by now that I dig Johnny Foreigner, like, a lot, so I’m really fucking excited that they’ve shared a video for their You Can Do Better track “Stop Talking About Ghosts” via DIYMag. It’s a good-looking and frantic clip following one man’s mental breakdown; it could be anxiety-inducing for those prone to it, and it includes some flashing images, so be warned. Fingers crossed that this indicates even more stuff coming from the Jofo camp in the near future!
The hardest part is letting go…
