Curlin's Fox was terrible. She can win in 1:33 but gets a bit of pressure and folds to come last in 1:35. She's not classy enough.
Love to see curlins fox win a big one I also like stormy Lucy
I screamed this girl all the way to the wire!
Stormy Lucy won and Recepta was second.
Hard Not To like stumbled very badly just now!
What's this horse's record? 1 for 1?
I harbor extremely strong doubts that Nyquist will ever come close to staying 10 furlongs. Uncle Mo never won past 8 and a half. Even 9 could be a bit too much to ask of Nyquist. And you can forget about a Triple Crown for him. He's never powering through 12. I think Songbird has the best chance of winning the Kentucky Derby of any 2 year old at the moment, and I really don't think it's all that close, either. I'd put Swipe 2nd behind her. If Songbird keeps dominating in the lead up to the Triple Crown series, I very much hope her connections reconsider and run her against the boys. As of now, she's better than any of them.
  • jrem1 · I'd like to see her go for the Derby too. Swipe seems to have some potential. Do you think that Exaggerator can be a factor in the Triple Crown races for 2016? · 41 minutes ago
Could be champion older male

This horse will be in high contention come Derby time, watch and see.
BOOM!! Dortmund looked too fast for his own good in the stretch! I wonder where to next, it might be a better idea for Baffert to stay home and target the Met Mile instead of going to Dubai which can take a lot out of a horse. The Met Mile should be the top priority race for a horse like Dortmund, will look really good on his record before eventually going to stud. Dortmund will probably race for as long as he is healthy which means a 5yo campaign, hopefully he stays healthy and happy!
  • reshuffler · Yea, I agree, doubt he would be able to do great at ten furlongs in dubai. He could probably win the Godolphin mile however. · 2 hours ago
