Instagrand's win was impressive and he is a really nice looking colt. His full 3yo sister won at Laurel 30 minutes prior to his win.

Reviving his own thread- he deserves it after today’s scintillating performance in the Best Pal. Just awesome today. Simon Bray commented on how he has very efficient motion.

Jerry has himself a hell of a colt. Drayden fits him well, too. Now just have to see how far he wants to go.

He's a good colt to be sure. I am already keen to see how he will handle added distance.

The Del Mar Futurity should be a great race with both Instagrand and Roadster pointing to it. Wonder where Rowayton runs next?

I was kind of excited to see that his dam sire is Lawyer Ron, who was a heckuva good racehorse. We lost 'Ron way too young, with only two crops. He won both the Whitney and Woodward during his 2007 championship year, so he could provide Instagrand with ability to get some distance.

Just had a look at the pedigree... don’t see many without inbreeding in the first 5gen.

Love the Lawyer Ron mare on the bottom - herself a daughter of Lord At War - a wonderful find in a pedigree.

This might be my new favorite horse to watch retire at the end of 2019.

He is quite a beautiful horse and his first two races have been spectacular. I'm a fan!
