The time was 1:42 2/5 (or 3/5? I don’t remember). That seems pretty fast to me is that correct? The AK Derby will be an exciting match up for sure, although it is Justify who desperately needs the points.

Perhaps, but I think good three-year-olds keep a man young. ;)


Gee, I wonder who he'll pick next to ride Sporting Chance. How fortunate for Luis Saez to be riding the winner. :-)

Arkansas Derby shaping up as a good match up between Justify and Magnum Moon. MM looked like he could give J all he can handle. Really looking forward to the race. MMis a strong and handsome horse. Love that his dam is by UBS.


Where was it mentioned that Justify was running in the Arkansas Derby, other than being a possibility? Imo, it wouldn't be surprising if he stays home and runs in the SA Derby and McKenzie ships out.

I would add that MM's closing fractions were very good.

per BB - Justify to Arkansas, McKinzie stays. He's been known to call an audible though. . .

When I looked at his pedigree post-race, the first thing I thought about was the very interesting article in the BH about Carrie Brodgen and her fondness for UBS broodmares.

no it is average are a little below- but the way he ran his race show he can go 1 1/8 with out a problem.

Does weight matter?
Rebel horses carried only 115 and will be picking up 11 pounds on the first Saturday in May.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.
