What's up with him? He had so much potential.
He's a decent horse. Just needs to grasp his potential. He looks like a solid LS or Allowance horse, maybe even better.
Faces off with Riveting Reason on Friday in Race 3 at Santa Anita.
  • shores · I think he'll beat him. As long as it took him to break his maiden, he hasn't done much wrong in his career. He and Riveting Reason are the same type of horse, really: a 2yo with a little bit of class that ran and placed in some top 2yo stakes, but never broke through, and took a long time to break their maiden. Hopefully it'll be a good race, but I'll go with Brother Francis for this one. · 570 days ago ·

Southern California’s top Kentucky Derby 2012 contender Creative Cause is the strong 6-5 morning line favorite in Saturday’s Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby.

Crazy shit happens, if BF manages to win or finish second in the SA Derby he'll make the gate in the KY Derby. It will be interesting.
