I find these pedigree analyses very valuable!
i think we all need to watch daddy long legs
They are pushed too hard too fast....owners need to re-coop, some trainers care less
In general, I'm sad to see so many taleted 3 yo's falling by the wayside and off the Derby Trail. Sky Kindom, Consortuim, Algorithms, and now Out Of Bounds is out.
  • Junebug719 · We gave to start making the trainers liable for harming the horses. We need to input some controls.. The us is a problem with killing of horses~!!!!!!!!!!!! · 1691 days ago
Laurie, regarding CASTAWY .I don't think we can Cast him Away either, and I look forward to his next start. Thanks for the nice write up!... our Chalky is quite pleased, too :)
laurie ..I think your analysis is terrific. Keep up the great work!
Pulpit and Discreet Cat are cream @ the top this year....
DRILL? This yea's version of Rule and Caleb's Posse. Overtrained, overraced and overmatched. Place him where he belongs- a mile or less- and only after a long rest.
WHere do you think they got that nameJuddmonte Farms breeds champions on a yearly basis
I like colts out of Empire Maker to break thru one of these years.Empire Maker was one of the best bred horses to ever run in the Kentucky Derby.Baffert has Sky Kingdom,there are probably others
Laurie Ross would be the first to tell the reader that of the 3 yo male early starring contenders listed here, only two are sired by legimate 10f influences, Creative Cause and Drill, and the latter has shown a precocity pattern that lends itself to sprinter-miler designation. Creative Cause, by the strong distance influence sire Giant's Causeway, is the strongest contender from his overall body of work to get the 10f Classic distance therefore.
