What were they thinking? "Shaking my head"
Looking at this one, I can't help but think, if they really want to try dirt then why not the Marathon? I get the blinkers since he does seem to hang, and who knows if the dirt will move him up, but I think 10f will be too short. We know he's long winded, so i doubt the marathon distance will bother him, if anything it may enhance his chances. Marathon seems to be a much more logical choice.
  • gelded1 · This horse hasn't looked good for a while now. Dirt isn't his best surface. What puzzles me is he ran one of his best races on the all weather track at Keeneland in the Bluegrass stakes and won and they have failed to run again on the synthetic tracks. I just think this one has been run in over his head and his will to win just isn't there. Running in the classic on dirt will be a waste of time for him in my opinion. · 677 days ago
Can someone agree with me that he should be moved back to the dirt or synthetic.
Three Chimneys purchased a "significant interest" in Brilliant Speed prior to his third place in the Sword Dancer. I was looking forward to this colt running next year. Hope he still does, but he's desired for his second career as a stallion, having the late Dynaformer as his sire.
They should move him back to the dirt.
bring him back to the dirt!
  • likin sparks · no way, he's faster on turf and needs more distance, mile was to short for him. · 866 days ago
  • timgsmith10 · Turf at a mile and 1/8 3 wins all at this distance. · 866 days ago
Not sure if I agree with using Grades stakes races as a prep race, could be a confidence killer for the horse?
On February 9, breezed 3 furlongs in 37.23 (6/14) at Palm Meadows.
  • likin sparks · My early pick as one the best turf horses in America this year. · 932 days ago
  • mdracing69 · Brilliant Speed breezed an easy 4f in :50.96 (15/16) at Palm Meadows on Feb 15. · 929 days ago
I like his consistency
Good luck to Brilliant Speed. Hes probably been saved for this mile & 1/2 grass event ever since going a mile & 1/2 in the Belmont. Give him some rest, pick up a easy grade 3 at Saratoga on the grass. Then have him fresh to go a arduous mile & 1/2 in the Breeders Cup in early November. Be interesting to see how this 3 yr. old does against older runners.
Brilliant Speed will return to turf racing in Sunday's Saranac Stakes.
Since this fine colt has already won a nice grade 1, I feel the connections just gave Brilliant Speed a nice workout in the "Dandy", not unusual for horses coming out of the triple crown series. I expect this nice colt to be much more of presence, and a force in another month if he runs in the Travers S.. Could get a nice price on him also. He's probably one of the better 3 year old's this season, and should be respected

  • Zenyatta-Perfection Personified · I really like Brilliant, so I was a bit disappointed with his Jim Dandy effort. I hope he can rebound and run a good race in the Travers! · 1128 days ago
  • CauseForConcern · Well, Michael, I came up with a counterpoint, but, after seeing you tout Coil before he was on anybody's radar, I will be sure to put an asterisk by Brilliant Speed when the Travers rolls around. · 1128 days ago
Johnny V will pick up the mount on Brilliant Speed for the Jim Dandy per Tim Wilkin.
he will stay the belmont distance, may not beat Animal Kingdom.
Sixteen members of Brilliant Speed’s family are Belmont Stakes winners. Despite going nine paths wide around the final turn in the Kentucky Derby, he finished a strong fifth. Brilliant Speed has a wonderful running style for the Belmont as well, being a come from behind horse. Having skipped the Preakness, he should be well-rested and fit for the Belmont. If he is able to stay closer to the rail and cut off some of that distance, he is armed and ready for a strong Belmont Stakes performance.

only two horses in here have the pedigree to go 1 1/4 miles #2 Brilliant Speed (my pick) and archIII all of the others pedigree say NO WAY.I believe all of them will get the 1 1/4 mile but when? Brillint Speed out of Dynaformer is my pick to close the last quarter all alone.Maybe some of you may remember another horse sired by Dynaformer named Barbaro.
Go For the Roses! Good Luck!!!!!
This is my pick. Just feeling it! What a beauty. Come on Brillian Speed, show em what you can do!
