Broke her maiden on the 2nd try by a commanding 4 1/2 lengths. Nice!
If LAL can improve off the Arkansas derby he will be very very very dangerous... In the Arkansas derby his jockey gave him a truly terrible ride in the home stretch, and he still pulled out 3rd against good competition...if you are looking for a value play this horse is the one!
I gotta say. I've watched the Rebel and the Arkansas Derby several times. Sonneteer is one of those horses the rest are hoping doesn't make it. He was two strides from passing Lookin at Lee and Conquest Mo Money and he was bearing down on Classic Empire.
If he gets in...with all of that speed up front, he could win the Derby.
I'm afraid that everybody hoping for a longshot with Hence is out of luck. With IRAP's and Conquest Mo Money's recent excellent races, Hence's Sunland Derby now looks like one of the best prep wins of the season. Forget about the "G" labels. What matters is the quality of competition, proven speed, consistency/progression, and momentum going into the KD. On all of this counts, Hence is one of the top contenders. He'll be under 10-1 in the KD and I wouldn't be surprised to see him land as the 3rd or 4th choice by post time.

  • Chicken Dinner via Disqus · He is a definite contender but there is no way he will be under 10-1 imo. The only horses under 10-1 will be AD, CE, IWC, maybe one other. · 7 days ago
  • Vernon France via Disqus · I like the big, powerful frame he has. He looks more like a four year old. He could hold his own in tight quarters as could his sire's son Danza and his aunt Zenyatta and uncle Street Sense, both by Street Cry. Yet he has some long distance influence from A P Indy on his dam's side as well. · 1 hour ago
One good race is far from a contender in KD. Not up on Sunland Derby stats but how many KD winners came out of Sunland Derby (G3 no lesss) to win or compete in the KD. Ok ran well in Ark Derby with a great trip but in a 23 horse stampede his poor chances get worst. We all have our favs, good luck with him. Want a long shot look to Lookin At Lee, stays out of trouble mid pack and if the jock doesn't jerk him around making three lane changes again that took away his momentum, the extra distance and a good trip is all he needs to take it.

  • triplechrome · Girvin was most consistent in the prep races. So what your saying can be true for all these contenders except him. IMO any horse from any prep race could be the KD winner as long as they are the best that day · 6 days ago

Was 30-1 in the futures in the first few hours of round 4 of the futures. I like his tactical speed, and Smith is as good as it gets for big races.
His full brother... LOOK at those legs! :O https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/86cd0bf6b70080642b873d3290acbca0e6e67ebf21291620bdbad4f1df6dc785.png
earlier I have said that, am I looking at New AMERICAN PHAROH in TAPWRIT ? he is still my # 1 derby horse. good luck to everyone
Here she is https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6b544786772a732e01f7a2d8d1692f710bed4e302d7e03312c386559d16c6cfa.png
Won his debut maiden by 3 lengths. He also has a possible entry in the French Derby. He's also a Medaglia d'Oro half-brother to Grace Hall.
Had her American Pharoah foal today, a filly.
.....broke awkward-traveled the most feet....long odds in derby 💰💰💰👍
Was unseated leaving the gate in R8 at Keeneland. Complaining of leg pain, he is concerned that he has broken his leg. He has the mounts of Daddy's lil Darlin in the Oaks & J Boys Echo in the Derby
She is going to be amazing!!!! She has very big shoes to fill!!!
  • Meydan Rocks via Disqus · Luckily, she gets to blaze her own path because after all, Cleopatra run circles around her men. It was they who tried to impress HER, thank you! LOL · 4 hours ago
You heard it here first...Battle of Midway will be in the trifecta with odds over 20-1.
If he comes to the KD, he won't be a factor at all. Just taking a spot away from someone who could be a real contender, but needs horses to drop out in order to make it.
Since I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and I'm in a bad mood....Can we all please call the FOY for what it was-a HORRIBLE ride from Joel Rosario!! I understand horses bounce but IWC has raced 5 times with speed figures of 99 and above for 4 races and then the FOY debacle. A horse that consistent does not just "get tired". A similar instance happened with Terra Promessa with Irad almost choking her around the oval. The FOY is not a mystery race as most want to believe-it was Rosario continuing to pull back on IWC and IWC being completely confused. When IWC wanted to go after BR in the Wood, Motion thought that Rajiv went too early but Rajiv said that IWC was doing it easily and on his own and he felt like he had so much horse....THAT was the so called mystery. One jockey let IWC run his race and the other choked her back. No mystery. Just a bad ride from a very very good jockey. It happens.

  • John Molnar via Disqus · Watched the replay of the FOY. I do not see the jock doing anything close to what happened to Big Brown? · 2 days ago
  • Realz Elite via Disqus · I like your take and it makes a lot of sense. But i now watched this replay 3x and i just don't see an overkill of holding them reins. It's the only excuse i can find for this clunker. But don't see it. · 6 hours ago
This Fair Grounds horse will be way out of his depth in the Kentucky Derby, he will do well if he finishes inside the Top 10.
