It is not usual for Russian trainers to play their trumps during the first meeting, but this year President of the Russian Federation Stakes to be run on 30th June makes a lot of difference. Many horses have already been run in the South where racing starts earlier due to warmer climate.

The day’s big race Season Opening Stakes brought together last season’s leading two-year-olds: Incandescent Star (Grand Prix, Moscow), Established Goal (First Crown Stakes, Pyatigorsk) and Kombinator (City of Nalchik Stakes, Nalchik) on their seasonal reappearances. Unlike those Galiego and Thunder Club finished first and second in the Season Opening Stakes at Krasnodar on 15th April which was definitely an advantage. Like a year before Jockey Club Racing LLC were on fire this day, their colors were represented by highly regarded, lightly raced at two and perfectly prepared Ters by Johannesburg.   

As expected the race turned into a war, but both Incandescent Star and Established Goal missed the kick and struggled to stay with the pace showing no signs of their best form. The pace was steady and turning home Galiego hit the front. In the home stretch Ters showed a real turn of foot and careered past Galiego scoring a very impressive victory by three lengths, his time 1.52,9 turned out to be this race’s best over the years. In closing stages Kombinator, Established Goal and Incandescent Star improved their positions, but they still have to make a lot of progress to match the winner. Ters raced only once at two, but his current performance really looks like a Derby bid.

Entrance Stakes for elder horses which is to be viewed as a prep race to the President’s Stakes was even more competitive. Ruling Derby winner Djasil, country’s best miler Brief Floyed, Nasibov Cup holder Mumi Trol, St Leger taker Accessoir, Anilin Stakes hero Absolutny  and a top stayer Furrino took up this very opened contest.

Brief Floyed hit the front right away and set a true pace while Dits, Djasil and Highest Lover tried to stay close. Brief Floyed stayed well, but in the home stretch it was Mumi Trol who managed to catch him and scored a second straight win in this race by a comfortable margin of two lengths. In fact this wasn’t a seasonal debut for Mumi Trol, on 1st May Mark Of Esteem’s son finished second in Entrance Stakes at Rostov which seems to be a crucial factor. Second place was taken by Edison who stayed far off the pace and in the home stretch cruised to beat  Brief Floyed by a length.

Mumi Troll as well as Brief Floyed and Djasil are definitely on the way to President’s Stakes, but with nearly seven weeks to go they will surely take up at least one more prep race. Also it is obvious that horses like Absolutny, Edison, Accessoir, Dits and Crimson Crown are capable of much better performance and will come back in a better form to engage pursuit for the big trophy. 

 The 2000 meters handicap was also contested by several heavyweights headed by ruling winner of Kazan Derby and Elbrus Cup Ugolek. Major threat was coming from Grey Fox (City of Moscow Stakes, Moscow), Lal (Champions’ Cup, Pyatigorsk) and Sery Cardinal (Radio Monte-Carlo Grand Prix, Moscow). Unfortunately Lal refused to enter starting gate and didn’t run. In the back stretch Ugolek was leading comfortably and untroubled while Grey Fox was kept under pressure to stay with the pack. However in the home stretch Ugolek found no more when was asked to and Grey Fox kept responding to deny a mighty opponent by a length.
Finally the 1200 meters handicap turned into a one horse race as Russia’s leading sprinter Desert Guest won it in uncompromising style. Despite being eased at the end he went clear by more than five lengths and scored a third victory of the day for the Jockey Club Racing LLC.
