Although he only won by a short distance today hiss performance was exceptional in my opinion. Held up something like 8 to 10 lengths off the pace set in the early stages by the group on the stand side he travelled well before making smooth progress and coming to lead in the last 1/2 furlong and actually going away at the finish line. It makes me think he will be better over further and so I'm hoping he will go on to an even better performance at the derby in 5 weeks time.

Nice race...love his name. That was the name of the pony I rode as a kid when I first started taking riding lessons. :D

And what relation is Joseph O Brien to Aiden?

Joseph is Aiden O'Brian's son. He won last year's BC Turf on St. Nicholas Abbey also trained by his father.

Hello,
Camelot traces back in the female line via "Budagyöngye" (by Buccaneer)to the famous race mare Kincsem.

This branch had already a "Classic Winner" , her name was Polygamy (by Reform, won English Oaks.), the 4th dam of Camelot is a FS. Budygyöngye won the "German Derby " in 1885.

Her own sister "Ollyan-nincs" is the 4th dam of the foundationmare Winnica (by Kottingbrunn). She founded the German strain of the Kinsem family and is still very succesful.

Fam. 4-o Well Made (C) by Mondrian, Well Proved (F) by Prince Ippi, Wauthi (C) by Authi, Wahnfried (C) by Flamboyant Zahrat Dubai, Polygamy:
Well Known (Königsstuhl) - Well Proved (Prince Ippi) - Well Tamed (Tamerlane) - Walzeroperette (Orator) - Wache (Chilone) - affenart (Alchimist) - Winnica (Kottingbrunn) - Orsza (Gouvernant) - Tempete (Dunure) - Szende (Ruperra) - Ollyan-Nincs (Buccaneer) - Kincsem (Cambuscan)

Regards, Bettina

Camelot won the Epson Derby today, in great fashion. I hope they point him for the last race of the Triple Crown. Maybe this year we will have two TC winners, no less.
