So Conflated will scratch from the Risen Star and instead head to the Gotham.
Doug O Neill announces that California Derby winner So Conflated, who drew post 14 in the Risen Star Stakes, will scratch and point instead for the Gotham Stakes.
If only.......Charismatic! We will miss you.
BREAKING NEWS: It is absolutely devastating to a report and confirm that 1999 Kentucky Derby winner Charismatic died unexpectedly this morning. He was 21 years old.
Easy gallop this morning. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C5DQBscVMAQyPqu.jpg
Only reason Tiznow won that race against GC was because GC drifted out
Another MOUNT down at almost the SAME SPOT in race 2...what is up with this?
Giant's Causeway lead a number excellent TURF horses that BOMBED in North America. This list is both long and unpredictable who will adjust to dirt in their face.
Down in a heap near the 1/16th pole in today's opening after being nearly beat to death by Gonzales...HOPE he got up.
That is one fast Time!!
Tiznow was a great racehorse, to win back to back BC Classic's, and beating SUPERSTARS like "Giant's Causeway" and "Sakhee". When "Sakhee" kicked for home and went a length or so clear, surely there was NO WAY he could be beaten, but "Tiznow" got him, that was an incredible achievement!!! You can see why he's so popular, he showed loads of guts and heart in his races!!! :-)
