Of course the presence of nation’s most famous people turned what used to be a prep meeting to the Russian Guineas (similar to Craven) into something bigger. A card of 7 races gathered highly competitive fields, many horses reappeared after the Opening Day a fortnight ago.
Baisad Company conditions race for elder horses featured 10 runners and only Sterh and Lal didn’t run this term. Last year’s 2000 Guineas taker Megapolis was favorite and it was him who set a strong pace after the break. In the backstretch Koolman took the narrow lead and travelled in the same high speed fashion to the far side of the course and by doing so he wore down many of his opponents. Only Megapolis and Koolman managed to stay with the pace and in the home stretch tried to attack the leader. However Koolman found enough to hold on to deny Absolutny by a length. 

In 2004 Koolman took part in the Railway Stakes at the Curragh and in 2005 scored an excellent win in the Radio Monte-Carlo Grand Prix for three-year-olds at the current meeting. A fortnight ago he had a warm-up run in 1200 meters handicap finishing second to stablemate Desert Guest. At the moment he is back to his top form and seems to be a big threat over 1600-1800 meters.
The day’s feature was Radio Monte-Carlo Grand Prix for three-year-olds – a conditions race with a reputation of the Derby prep. A line-up of 10 runners included the Season Opening Stakes’ winner Ters, last years Stakes winners JF Jet and Sunshine Lemon. Trial Stakes and Summer Stakes winner JF Jet hit the front right away dictating very fast pace. In the backstretch Alcon took over, but that was nothing in comparison with Ters’ move turning left. Turning for home Ters was clear by more than 4 lengths and only Sunshine Lemon was still in contention. In  the homestretch Ters was eased and even then finished with a three length advantage over Sunshine Lemon who is still far from his potential state.

At the moment Ters is definitely Moscow’s best three-year-old, the winning time of 1.52,3 is the track’s fastest over the years. The only questions is what will happen when the likes of Sunshine Lemon obtain their best form.

Later the public had a chance to enjoy the only hurdle race run at the Moscow Hippodrome. Its ruling winner Rodnik this time was ridden the legend of Velka Pardubicka Steeple-Chase Josef Vana from Czech Republic. In the race Armalit, Furrino, Diamat and Rodnik and were all kept in front very tight. At half way point Rodnik pulling hard was given a signal and careered away from the others. However turning home he ran out of fuel and shortly after Furrino caught him in front of the second last hurdle. Obviously Rodnik was so tired that simply crashed into a hurdle and went down. Furrino took the lead which didn’t last long as Yubiliar who was kept off the pace surged home and passed him at the last jump. Yibiliar scored a decisive win by 3.5 lengths and received huge cheers from the crowd.

As for the Guineas preps both turned into one horse races. In the Struna Stakes for fillies a daughter of Tale Of The Cat named Magic Land easily scored beating her stablemate History Love by nearly 5 lengths what could have been doubled if needed. In fact this was Magic Land’s first ever start and now she is definitely a big favorite for 1000 Guineas.

In the Sprinters Stakes a line-up was very strong indeed. From the start Maraspent set a very fast pace which stretched the field. Turning home last year’s Grand Prix runner-up Williams blazed to the front and went clear by more than 6 lengths. At the end Williams was eased, while Club Traveller lacking early speed cruised from last place to the second. Williams clocked 1.25,8 what is a very good result by local standards. He is set to be favorite for 2000 Guineas, but in case Ters runs there this will turn into a real war.
