The 2007 TC was such an incredible series of races.
I love the race to played only $300.00 that day - straight rags -curlin- hardspun.. tidgo
only got the ex it paid $2800.00 thanks to GG pulling HS up going to wire.

most people don't know why she won even after such a bad trip - first she had proven she was faster- second her full brother did and so did her old man.

Rags to Riches ran one of the best races I have ever seen in her Belmont win - she went down to her nose at the start - was wide on both turns - very wide on the last turn - and then after all that.... had to have a stretch battle with Curlin - in a mile and a half race - that was so exciting.

we had been watching her run here at santa anita - so we were already big fans of hers, she was fun to watch. but we felt so bad for Garrett Gomez. he didn't ride her in the Belmont. johnny V did an outstanding job that day though. such a shame she had that injury not long after and had to be retired. she was something.

Jazil was by Seeking the Gold. She went off as the 2nd favorite, perhaps they were on to something. ;)

I just watched that workout. He's a heck of a looker.

I can see Tenfold moving very forwardly off of his Ark Derby race.

Hopefully they aren't running on a lake Saturday.

Bravazo could be Oxbow 2.0, similar campaigns and pedigree features. Just as Good Magic could be Exaggertor 2.0.

I'll take Tenfold

I saw him 2x at OP and put him in my virtual stable. Asmussen had both the dam and sire, so he knows this type, I'm thinking this one could end up being Gun Runner 2.0. I have him pegged on a number of my own "weird" pedigree angles as well for the slop.

Seems like everyone is "saying" they are sending,. Ortiz said he saw this as a match race, so I guess he is sending, too?

I doubt SC stays the same number wide throughout, whatever number that may be. He starts out five wide and could end up fifteen wide. Lukas tends to like his horses to get out early, so I just hope SC doesn't interfere with any others. Frankly, Lukas is always there with bells on so to speak for the TC events, but imo there are serious safety concerns with this horse in the race given he's gone sideways more than once in the past.

Don't feel sorry for GG he pull his horse up because they would not let him out of his contract to rider her so he keep the trainer and owner from a pay day they only paid to 3rd.
back then.

The one and only Sunday Silence!

$315.55 later and no schedule confirming my boyfriend definitely has off (my sister doesn't know she's plan B) and we are Belmont bound... which definitely means that Justify will not win tomorrow. Somehow.

I read comments from multiple posters stating that Justify looked "exhausted" in the stretch and that this might be a reason for one of the Derby placers or also-rans to turn the tables... however...

If Justify was truly exhausted and still no one could reel him in, what does that say about those who finished behind him?

If he wants to do that he'll have to break the heretofore unbreakable "pgf has a wedding on Belmont day so a TC will be on the line" record.
ETA: ditto on Sunday Silence.

Just checking up on our new favorite horse...

Lucky #7 again and only 7 opponents. I'm still not betting on it knowing Justify will go off at 2/5 and he's recovering from a bruised heel. I knew after he won the Santa Anita Derby and if he won the Kentucky Derby, he could be an awful bet for the rest of his career and it looks that way.

If Justify wins and he should still win this (although I did say that about Nyquist & Always Dreaming as well), let's go watch him try to make history in three weeks. If he loses because this is his 5th start in a span of three months, hopefully he rests up and it opens up a potential 4YO campaign.

Rooting for him hard tomorrow. Will take a break from work about 3pm and catch it on TV. I just find the Preakness such a bad, bad bet for favorites nowadays no matter how good the horse is. Feels like a trap race. Recovering from a bruised heel, 2/5, and a rush job of five starts in 91 days? Nah. Just watch.
