  • jonquil · chelsea.devries.37: He does have a good filly or three, but it seems very telling that while Coolmore is very willing to pay out big bucks for War Front colts, I don't recall seeing them show as much/if any interest in any War Front fillies. Coolmore now has several War Front colts in training. · 216 days ago ·

  • mschneider · Tmallios1 - A good day to you aslo. I hope you know I am a huge fan of Verrazano, just not of the opinion he should be 3YO Eclipse winner. Is Cross Traffic the rocket ship you are referring to? · 224 days ago ·

Just another day of easy work for Departing and he is on to Indiana and maybe the Clark after that?

Departing came from just off the pace to win Saturday's 34th running of the Grade 2 $500,000 Super Derby at Harrah’s Louisiana Downs in impressive fashion.Read More
