Call me an East Coast snob, but i never understood the hoopla regarding this horse. He has a 12-8-3-1 record, all on plastic, all in SoCal
What has this horse that can "run all day" done in his three G1 1 1/4 races? He has beaten Tres Borrachos and the filly Life Is Sweet. He was third to Richard's Kid and Einstein who finished 6th and 11th in the BCC respectively. He lost to perennial also ran Awesome Gem.
In his two G2 wins this year he has beaten the sprinter Sangaree
Thank god that Gio Ponti ran in the Man O War yesterday rather than on that phony surface where he would have won by 5.
