Mendelssohn Among Them
By Dick Downey
Early entries are in for the Group 1 QIPCO 2000 Guineas run at one mile on turf at Newmarket on May 5. The £500,000 race was again in 2017 rated as the world’s best 3-year-old mile race.
Fifteen were nominated by Aiden O'Brien, including Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf winner Mendelssohn, but that one wasn't mentioned in Newmarket's press release. The O'Brien horses that received attention in the release are US Navy Flag, Gustav Klimt and Saxon Warrior.
