I wonder if Lukas is trying to get Mr. Z killed. He's trying to milk as much money out of that horse as possible.
  • chasingfiringline via Disqus · Z gives us his best every race.......he's a gutsy horse.....don't think he's a grade 1 horse......obviously, he's never won a grade 1...... · 2 minutes ago
Shotgun Kowboy is a beast , if you dont know him yet , you will

I like Hopportunity, KI & Race day .............Mr. Z will hit the front end.........Hop & KI battle it out for 1st & Race day hits show mark...IMHO.......It would be great to see Z win a grade 1, but he's not a grade 1 horse.
I don't understand why Mac Daddy Mac is not on the top 50 contenders after that great showing in the Bob Hope Stakes....he looked great & rallied against Toews on Ice...
This time of the year I like to look for horses that are improving and who have a chance to move to the top of their division next year. Race Day, Hoppertunity, Effinex and Protonico are nice horses but I think we have seen them at their best. Keen Ice, however, could be a horse that is getting it all together and growing into a top horse. A win here, and I think he has a great chance to win, could lead to a very nice 4 year old season.

  • cugel the clever · KI did not improve from the Travers to the BCC; in fact he regressed considerably. There's no reason to think that he'll improve here. But that might still be good enough to win. He and Eff are the win contenders. · 25 minutes ago
Effinex, Keen Ice, Mr.Z, Hoppertunity in no particular order.
