  • icyhotboo · EP Taylor , I didn't mean to give the impression he was already as good as Victory Gallop or any other horse for that matter. I meant he the "potential" to be very good, nothing more. Also I would wager on him against other top 3yos, but not older horses at this time as Palace Malice and Will Take Charge are very good older horses and a bit much for a 3yo in the near future. Then again if they keep Stevens and PM doesn't run I would bet him against any of the remaining horses including WTC. If saez comes back I believe he'll keep him closer to the pace as he did when he was on him and we'll see a much improved horse. As for Bluebonnet's and who gave me Raymond Benoit's name as the announcer I thought it was you. I guess not. The trouble with Canada is there are to many Canadians. Hard to keep track of all of you. I always enjoyed myself when up there. I never traveled outside of Ontario province though. The only problem I had was when they wanted to ignore you, knowing I was American they just start speaking French. · 8 days ago ·
  • EP Taylor · The last part of your comment is too funny. If you want a great experience I highly recommend Canada's East coast. Newfoundland especially. Beautiful part of the Country as is the West coast in British Columbia. As for Tonalist' potential. I agree. · 7 days ago ·

  • thepuresilverband@yahoo.com · Wicked Strong with breed Chrismatic of trainer Wayne Lukas who had won the Derby and 2nd with Chrismatic's stable mate "cat Theif" How many trainers have won 1st & 2nd in the kentucky Derby. (Baffert must be in envy). Later on Breeders Cup 3 Mill Classic, I bet a $5 Bet on Cat Theif & BudRoyal which got me over $3,000! Just a $2 exacta was over $1,000!! I like the breeding and both Chrismatic & Cat Theif had the fastest both almost record speed Beyers! Dont Discount Wicked Strong! · 85 days ago ·
Wicked Strong threw his hat into the Kentucky Derby 2014 ring with a sharp late running victory in the Wood Memorial.

  • Toasting · Great article, Matt. As far as the HOF goes, Curlin is a lock, and Asmussen is a near-lock. That leaves the eight others essentially vying for two spots. Antley's talent isn't in question, but like fellow nominee Garrett Gomez, his off-track demons may weigh heavy on the minds of voters. On ability, he's a Hall of Famer, but I'm not sure the voters will shut out his habits away from the track. · 120 days ago ·
  • goblin · Well, I guess dennis.mathews' statement is amusing as well as containing truthful elements; but I have both heard Steve A. say and read written accounts in which he gives credit for "his" success to his entire team, family (wife Julie), and his assistant trainers with special mention of Scott Blasi. · 120 days ago ·

  • annmatt · Good points! · 581 days ago ·
  • buds · I really dont see the logic in comparing horses from different seasons. If the BEST horse in a particular year wins 3 Graded stakes, (or whatever BCC, derby, etc) and thats beter than everyone else then that horse is the BEST then they earned it, period. If in another year a horse has 6 Graded wins and that is the BEST, then that horse deserves HOY, period. Wise Dan should be hands down, HOY. Followed closely by Little Mike and Royal Delta.

  • ruffian75 · Good article, Bryan. A question that came to mind: There are only five to have won the Ky Derby after having ran in the Juvenile. If I recall, they don't seem to do much after that. Seems Street Sense took a back seat to Curlin, thereafter. I guess Alysheba would be the exception to this rule, but I would think that, for the most part, that if they pursue this road to the Derby, it might not go much further? · 606 days ago ·
  • kentuckyderbypost · Ruffian75 - Fair point. Sea Hero raced as a 4 yr old but his best performance was a win in the Travers also at age 3. KY Derby was Mine That Bird’s last win, 0 for 9 after. Street Sense was retired after his 3-yr-old season but not before winning the Jim Dandy and Travers. Alysheba is the exception, raced at age 4 and won the BC Classic along with 5 other Grade 1 races. · 606 days ago ·

  • AnnaK · Would love a Triple Crown, mostly because it would pull people in to the races, (already started I like to think), plus IHA is such a strong red engine and Mario is excellent, that it just might be. Can't see Dullahan doing it, 27 in the last q good to know, that fancy inefficient leg work, so IHA and UR and anyone else can duke it out. · 779 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · IHA, can't get off after two big scores with him. Should get 3/1-7/2. That's a lot for this one. If CC gets a decent trip he wouldn't surprise me, had a hard dreby trip but he's one of the three contenders along with Bodemeister. These three are so far superior to the rest but IHA is my selection to win. · 782 days ago ·
  • ruffian75 · Floridaf: Another threesome could be Silver Charm, Captain Bodgit, and Free House. Or, a HOF threesome: Bold Ruler, Round Table, and Gallant Man. · 782 days ago ·
This is definitely not a Top 100 horse. Maybe around #250 or so is more accurate.
