My take as someone who backed him and lost is that he was sweating behind the barriers a bit. He reared and threw Oliver off when the Quarterback went off. He jumped awkwardly and all this as well as freshness made him over race.
I wrote my bet off at the 800 m mark.
Oliver therefore fought and restrained him and in doing so , tucked him in behind runners to try and settle him. This in turn led to him being trapped in behind a wall of runners when the time to go came, as they raced as a pretty tight group with room only down either side. 
 
Not that he would have had the petrol left to finish off like the winner anyway.
His only unplaced run ever and a page full of excuses but his bubble burst with a bang yesterday.
 
Perhaps he needed another trial under his belt, hindsight as they say is a wonderful thing, but he did seem too fresh for his own good.

In the Spring on Derby day Flying Artie was he pick of the yard before the the race up on his toes a magnificent type compared to his rivals and in great condition.
 
Not the same horse in the yard yesterday imho and the rest panned out that way.
 
Not sure what Mick Price can do to put the pieces back together again he's got a job ahead of him and hope he can work something out.

Not sure what to make of him. He should have the measure of the other 3yos on his Coolmore win and I'm not worried by the older horses like Spieth. So that makes him the Newmarket winner- simple. The only trouble is I would be basing things only on the Coolmore win. That was a big spike over my general assessment of the horse and generally, taking out the Coolmore run, I wouldn't want him in a Newmarket.

Yeah I know you are rusted on FArtie fans and every run is gold, apart from the Lightning, but that's not how I see him. Is the Coolmore run the real FArtie or was it an aberration?

Bah- just noticed this is in the Stallions section- it will sink without trace and I'll never find it again.

No it wont.

It will be easier to find than when or if it was in the racing section.

Go flash go's assessment is spot on. Looked the best in Nov. altho swap his run in the race with astern & Astern wins. I also backed F Artie in the Coolmore. Couldn't have him in the Lightning. Looked like a miler. Also the delay cooked him.
Can't see him improving for the Newmkt. Spieth will.

From a breeding point of view, love Rubiton being there.

Furious how often does Rubiton appear in a good horses page?

Averaged $102k for the Magic Millions off a $38.5k fee.

Making money, but this year's fee of $27,500 might not be the bottom?

Sorry Isaac I've got other problems at the moment and only look in here occasionally.  I love Rubiton as I admired him as a racehorse and of course he's Century/Better Boy line and I love to see that outcross in pedigrees.  But Rubiton who unlike Century's other good son Centaine got to stay in Australia.  He has St Magnus (son of Fair Isle - so the female cross for her brothers Fairway and Pharos) who is also by Sansovino (by Swynford from Gondolette grandam of Selene dam of Hyperion and ancestress of Sir Tristram).  The other key point is Todman.

With quite a few lines now with Noholme in them ie Spirit of Boom it is lovely to find one with Todman.  Then you have all the Hyperion or Sir Tristram lines which should fire well with a mare with this boy in the pedigree.

So while Flying Artie is probably the best recent on you have Playing God now firing at stud and the older boys Danerich and Dash for Cash both having done a good job from lesser mares.  El Roco is another which sired a G1 winner at the weekend.

Agree Glencoe. They did not look like precocious types and there was a fair bit of Rubiton in some..Probably be better as 3yos.
