Modern Games ‘won’ the Juvenile Court at Del Mar last November | Horsephotos

When last seen on these shores, Godolphin’s MODERN GAMES (IRE) (c, 3, Dubawi {Ire} –Modern Ideals {GB}, by New Approach {Ire}) was embroiled in the controversy of all the controversies, being erroneously scratched, then allowed to run – albeit only for the money – in the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf. The hybrid is likely to return to the Breeders’ Cup after beating superior opponents by more than 5 lengths in Saturday’s GI Ricoh Woodbine Mile, where Modern Games earned an all-expenses-paid ride fee. Allowed to fall back to sit worse than midfield as Get Smokin (Got Stormy) sets a strong tempo ahead of War Bomber (Ire) (War front), the chestnuts still found themselves in the back half of the field and in some traffic as they raced into the final three-eighths of a mile. Soon after falling behind before turning home, Modern Games raced in clear and through a few final stretches to score decisively. Ivar (Brz) (Agnes Gold {Jpn}) was late to snap a picture of second in front of European driver Finest Sound (Ire) (Exceed and Excel {Aus}). Winner of this year’s G1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains (French Guineas 2000), Modern Games ran Europe’s top horse Baaeed (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) was as long as 1 3/4 when last seen at G1 Sussex S. at Goodwood on July 27. Modern Games was the first 3-year-old to win the Woodbine Mile. Lifetime record: 11-6-2-1. O/B-Godolphin; T-Charlie Appleby.
