Wednesday Morning Notes - April 18

- Wednesday's Keeneland handicapping up at The Special now.

- Waiting to find out about Highland Cat today. He's stuck on the AE list, and we don't know if the race will be on grass, so stay tuned. [UPDATE: The race is off the turf, and Highland Cat is scratched.]

- When EZ Warrior returns to the races, he'll be limited to races between six furlongs to a mile, according to Zayat Stables. A deal to sell his breeding rights to Coolmore has fallen through. It sounds like Zayat is going to have a lot of little Warriors running around in the next few years, according to the stables' Sobhy Sonbol .

"We're tied in to the whole family....We own his dam, Carson Jen (by Carson City), and her 2-year-old daughter (J Z Warrior) by Harlan's Holiday, and her yearling colt (B Z Warrior) by Malibu Moon. Carson Jen is ready to foal any day from the cover of Dixie Union and is booked to Bernardini." `[Bloodhorse]
Speaking of Bernardini, he'll be a busy stud, shuttling to Australia for the Southern Hemisphere season. He'll command a fee of $82,500, as opposed to the $100,000 he gets here. Henny Hughes will also be doing the double duty. Tough lives, eh?

A winner wire to wire in a Keeneland sprint. It is a miracle. Race 5 by the way
