Great video, I think Matt just doesn't want us betting her down.lol. That heart on the forehead is amazing. She looks a little small but her workouts look like she's ready to go. I hope this turns into an amazing story.
To stand at EA Ranches for 2016
Nice win in the John Morrissey S.!!
Going with AP, followed by nonnas boy and keen ice. Nonnas boy ran 1 1/16 in 1:41 over the track recently and was just as good as stanford and Japan 3rd by 1/2 in that 3 horse field. I like nonnas boy here, showed well against good cometiton and has a dazzler over this track. This track is going to be lightning fast. I wouldnt be at all shocked to see pharoah win this in sub 1:47 because of the pace that is going to be out there with competitive edge. If the race is competitve, you could see near track and world record times in this one. If its a romp it will be slower. This could be the race that finally puts the final nail in the critic/hater/chromie coffin. I love the way this one sets up for pharoah to do something dazzling.
scratch that. the nonnas boy win was on turf. have to reevaluate that one

Does anyone know how much the winners purse is now that Monmouth increased the total from 1.0 to 1.75? I know the winner got 600,000 before I'm guessing it's 1 million now?
