Tough to say, but that's racing when you try to take a closer up the rail like that. Worked for them last time. Not so much this go around.

Really? I think Big Blue Kitten had the same perfect, ground-saving trip he did in both the United Nations and Sword Dancer and was simply unable to run down a better horse.

His traffic trouble paled in comparison to Junior Alvarado letting Slumber completely lose position all the way around the turn then asking him to re-rally in the stretch.

Little Mike back to his best in Joe Hirsch upset

Priscilla Vaccarezza's homebred Little Mike, who had a penchant for lifting marquee turf events at healthy odds last year, was up to his old tricks in Saturday's Grade 1, $600,000 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational at Belmont Park. Sent off at 7-1 after failing to hit the board in four starts this season, the reigning Breeders' Cup Turf champion pounced turning for home and just fended off the 4-5 Big Blue Kitten, earning an automatic berth to a title defense at Santa Anita on November 2.

This. Slumber was my primary play in this race and he really did not get the best of rides. Maybe wouldn't have won anyway, but... :evil:
