Suburban may be next.
I thought his race was stellar. He’s a very powerful looking horse.

I didn’t realize Global Campaign is a 1/2 to Bolt d’Oro AND Sonic Mule! He just won the Peter Pan S (G2) today.

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

Do people not remember Country House ran 3 tough races in 6 weeks? And, that Mott generally takes his time with his horses and doesn’t run them into the ground? Why would Mott change his philosophy just to have a chance in 1 race? Prior to the Derby, Mott wasn’t entirely sure they would run him, bec...

Beyer numbers are bonkers.

I had Liora and Lady Apple in the right order yesterday... but I was wrong on the winner. Which is the story of my life.
Do you play matchups?
Nope. Would you tell me more about them?

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

That head on really shows it.

When I defended the decision, I actually had someone say the stewards violated a serious moral law yesterday...

Has anybody seen Country House in person? He looks like a big boy in photos.
He’s big. Mott has said he’s a strong, robust horse. I think he wasn’t as bothered by being slammed into because he’s a brick wall.

Re: 2019 Triple Crown

I think it’s a lot to ask Country House to come back in the Preakness. The horse ran 3 races in 6 weeks. Pimlico isn’t the track for big, long-striding horses. However, it would be fun if he did win!

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

How many people mad that Maximum Security was DQed are also mad that Bayern was not DQed? Question of the day for me I still believe Bayern should be taken down. These are top racehorses - if they cannot be in a race without causing serious trouble because they are green, they should not be in the ...

Re: Baffert now has the 3 shortest prices in the field

The Derby is becoming a joke. It just goes to show you owner's don't care if trainers have killed horses in the past with unnecessary drugs, all they care about is winning. The sport is becoming a joke. Why don't we just reward Santa Anita for all their breakdowns while we are at it, and move the B...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Oaks

Bellafina is my pick, based on her dominance this year, but the Oaks is an odd race - as in I never get it right. I also like Lady Apple and Liora, and if Dunbar Road gets in I might throw her a couple bucks because she looks like she could be any kind.

Although it doesn’t hurt to be out of the same mare who produced Speightstown.
He still has a way to go before he catches up to Midshipman.
