That was impressive. I've watched the replay three times.

Also talks a little about his other 3 year olds, Tacitus, Mucho, and Country House.

Mott Taking Wait-and-See Approach With Hidden Scroll
When you think of trainers and brilliantly fast, precocious young horses, Bill Mott is not someone who normally comes to mind. But on Saturday at Gulfstream, Mott unleashed a first time starter named Hidden Scroll (Hard Spun), who not only won the one-mile maiden special weight race by 14 lengths, but registered a 104 Beyer Figure that is higher than any member of his crop has run to date.

His running time for the one-mile race run in the slop was 1:34.82. Five races later, older horses covered the same distance in 1:36.22 in the GIII Fred W. Hooper S.

Extra Hope wins N1X, on Derby trail perhaps
Trainer Richard Mandella hoped a first-level allowance mile Thursday at Santa Anita would provide 3-year-old Extra Hope with a boost of confidence, and the colt delivered with a solid victory over a “sloppy” track.

Extra Hope, third last out in the Grade 1 Los Alamitos Futurity, won the entry-level allowance by three and one-quarter lengths over favorite Kingly. Final time of the race, run over a “sloppy” track that produced fast times, was 1:34.74. An official Beyer Figure for the race will be released on Friday; an early estimate is the 90 range.

My boy Nitrous returned to win the Roy Allison Derby at Sunland Park (January 2017).

I don't think I like him for the Derby (pedigree is Tapit over City Zip, so interesting) but the Preakness might be in his wheelhouse.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Regardless of what you say about the race, Not That Brady (Big Brown/Lisa's Booby Trap) was game as hell in the Withers.

Is he from Arch's last crop?

Congrats might have a good son in Harvey Wallbanger.

Upset the Holy Bull.

Upset the Holy Bull.
So, what are we supposed to do with this result and any of the horses behind the two longshots in a relatively slow race (85 Beyer)? Mihos (to me), looked completely confused out there, and I'm willing to give him a pass going 2 turns first time. He didn't settle early, and never looked comfortable, yet still ran on and didn't ever spit the bit while finishing evenly. Depending on how he trains going forward, I'd give him a chance to rebound next out with a better effort. I'm a little less forgiving with Maximum Mischief, who sat just off the leader and 'should' have finished better given the trip, unless you think the post, and the aborted attempt to get to the lead in the first quarter, bottomed him out enough to shorten his stride late. If so, then good luck in May.

In the end, I think the first two finishers in the next race might be better prospects as the season progresses than any of the runners in the Holy Bull.

The race was ultimately a bit of an eyesore, but Mihos got either a horrible ride or the rider was given horrible instructions. He was under a ride the entire way. Maybe Johnny got confused and thought Todd trained him. I would love to see an alternate universe where he sits back patiently, and lets the race come to him. I think Mihos would have won.
