3yo Raced Horses for 2022

I did start off with well over a hundred three-year-old trackers but looking through them again I’ve got rid of a good few. I have noted a few here that will hopefully get a win or two this year. 

1: CHEF DE PARTIE is by Siyouni and out of Nessina, trained by Roger Charlton and bought for 95,000 gns at the October Yearling Sales out of book 2. The Siyouni colt made a pleasing debut in a class 2 race at Doncaster last september. A couple of winners have come out of the race so I can see Chef De Partie picking up a win sooner rather than later. Hollie Doyle steadied Chef De Partie at the back until making her move around the three furlong marker. I did like the way he was moving until getting squeezed up around the furlong pole before running on again. Chef De Partie is a half-brother to Extra Elusive who is a decent type also trained by Roger Charlton. A step up in trip and the winter behind him should bring out the improvement to kick start his career. 

2: EMILY DICKINSON is by Dubawi and out of Chiquita, trained by Aidan O’Brien. The Irish trainers 2-year-olds are a bigger mystery than Lord Lucan. I mean he has that many who knows what to expect when they turn three but I have a feeling Emily Dickinson is better than her debut at Leopardstown back in October when held up at the back before making some headway to finish tenth of fifthteen, I’m pretty sure we will see a better horse than that position suggests this season. 

3: KINGDOM COME is by Kingman and out of Monami, trained by Clive Cox. The Kingman colt has raced twice already, first time out ran green so I will forget that run but second time out in a big field at Doncaster looked a bit more professional and with luck in running I think he would have been in a better place to challenge. Kingdom Come was settled at the rear by Kirby in the far group, looking back most of the action took place on the near side and Kingdom Come only got involved late on and it was too late by then. A half-brother to the 2020 German Group 1 Oaks winner Miss Yoda. I am looking forward to seeing the 580,000 euro Breeze-Up purchases next run. 

4: MAKKARI is by Galileo and out of Sobetsu, trained by Charlie Appleby. The Galileo filly has an excellent pedigree being out of Sobetsu who was an excellent type for Charlie in her two seasons racing, winning a couple of group races in France as a 3-year-old and coming third in the Fillies Mile at 2. Makkari was easy to back on debut and showed signs of greenness when slow out the stalls for her first race at Kempton last December. The 7/2 shot made up ground and stuck to her task when reaching the cut away, personally I thought she had a lot more in the locker but coasted home. One to keep on the right side of this year. 

5: OSRAIGE is by Siyouni and out of Fork Lightning, trained by Joseph O’Brien. It still gives me nightmares watching the debut of Osraige because I had a bet and was in with a decent chance until Osraige didn’t take too kindly to being whipped and veered left when in with a great chance of winning at Dundalk in November. The 250,000 euro purchase is better than that and can hopefully stay on a straight line when we see her next out.

6: PRINCESSE D'OR is by Frankel and out of Fleche D’or, trained by Charlie Appleby. I really hope this Frankel filly is better than seen on debut at Kempton in November. Costing a whopping 2 million at the October Yearling Sales. The Godolphin filly comes from an excellent family including the great Golden Horn. Princesse D’or was well-supported on debut but ran a stinker, definitely green but didn’t do much to be honest. It’s a gamble but I’m willing to take a chance on her. 

7: TUESDAY is by Galileo and out of Lillie Langtry, trained by Aidan O’Brien. One that went into many notebooks after a decent debut at Curragh back in June. The Galileo filly comes from an excellent family, offspring include Minding, Empress Josephine and Kissed By Angels. A step up in trip will see Tuesday break her maiden and hopefully go onto better things. A few that need to step up after disappointing: 

8: UMAX trained by David Loughnane. 

9: THAKRAH trained by Robert Cowell. 

10: NINJA trained by Aidan O’Brien. Any others I will mention in my blog or on social media before they run. I did mention one the other day on Twitter. I had Stormy Ocean as a 3yo to follow, even though I didn’t have a bet on the shorted priced favourite it was nice to see the Frankel colt win. 

Thanks for reading and stay safe.
