I agree with you. I wish Palace Malice had skipped the Derby so he could win The Preakness, like his sire, Curlin did. I believe Palice Malice was pushed too hard, prior to the derby & now he is too tired & worn out for the Preakness, which should be his race to win....& now I hear they want to point him towards the Belmont Stakes.

Reload's race was taken off the turf.
Storm Cat has been euthanized at Overbrook Farm due to complications from old age. Was 30 years old. Story to come.

My response very easily could have been "Suggesting Animal Kingdom is a prospective game changer in worldwide breeding is ludicrous"
I'm glad I didn't write that one instead. That would have likely caused trouble.
