I'd love for Bravazo to finally get his day in the sun

...here's hoping that your rebuilding project is moving right along.

I wish. Kukulkan stands a better chance of winning the Pegasus than I have of being back in my own home anytime soon. :roll:
Sorry the gears are grinding slowly. Best wishes you get your home and TVG back soon!

Rain in the forecast?
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Weather is supposed to be showers Saturday, storms Sunday. Front is coming through here in Tampa Saturday evening. Temps are going down, too.

So if the track/course is wet, who do you all like in the World Cup? World Cup Turf?

It's been a while since I looked at the PP's and off track records.

I haven't been following either race at all, but I would like to see Aerolithe, Magic Wand, or Catapult take the turf. As for the dirt, I like Gunnevera, Bravazo, and Accelerate.

Accelerate has handled off racetracks just fine in the past. I’m not saying it’ll give him an edge but it shouldn’t move him back.

Starlight Buys Into Yoshida
Starlight Racing has acquired an interest in Yoshida (Jpn) (Heart’s Cry {Jpn}), the 5-2 favorite for Saturday’s GI Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational, from WinStar Farm, which campaigns the versatile MGISW along with China Horse Club and Head of Plains Racing. Starlight co-owned 2018 Triple Crown winner and Horse of the Year Justify (Scat Daddy) with the same powerful ownership group, and is also partners on GI Pegasus World Cup Invitational contender Audible (Into Mischief).

:::whisper chants::: Aerolithe! Aerolithe! Aerolithe! (or okay Yoshida LOL)

Honestly, what I really want is for them just to all come home safely. *fingers x*

Scratches so far today:
Starting with R3, I'm in handicapping contests that did not play races 1 and 2.

R3) 2, 3, 6

R5) 1, 2, 3, 5, 10

R6) 13, 15, 16

R7) #1 jockey change to F Prat

R9) 1, 5

R10) 1, 11, 13

Turf good, dirt muddy.

Races 3 and 5 are off turf.

Haven't had a chance to keep up with anything lately, but Hidden Scroll just catapulted onto many Derby lists. Incredible debut for a Mott, albeit one who was working lights out before today.

That was a pretty nice performance for the Hard Spun colt. Geared down and ears up.

From DRF....

Bill Mott, not one to push on to the Derby, is live with 3-year-olds this year. He just sent out Hidden Scroll for a runaway debut win at Gulfstream, and he has the likes of Mucho and Country House in the barn, too, among others.

Asked if he expected Hidden Scroll to run like he just did, Mott said, "He trained pretty nice." And smiled.

In Mott-ese, this is tantamount to, "I loved him and can't believe he just paid 8-1! Christmas came early!"

Mott said he asked about four riders to get on Hidden Scroll, "including some guys I don't usually call unless the horse is OK," and said they all had prior committments. When he realized Joel Rosario would be in for the day, he reached out to agent Ron Anderson, putting Rosario on a live ticket.

Not by winning on a bog with a pretty turf heavy pedigree (even if it's really nice pedigree).

Caveats apply and he was where you need to be on this track, but his workouts jumped off the page, they clearly knew, and the final time was scintillating. I want to see him again and don't have any idea what's going on with the Derby trail right now, but I think he'll get a lot of conversation in the next few weeks. The only other big Mott debut I can think of off the top of my head was Royal Delta.

He paid $18 so I'm guessing "they" bet offshore.
