Wow got alot of mares this year! 150 mares
Today I found out Dizney's neice goes to my town's high school. We talked about First Dude and other of her aunt's horses all morning. Small world!
Well that stinks, all my favorite horses are now reired. Huge hit to handicap division, thought somehing was wrong when Baffert worked Game on Dude at Del Mar and left First Dude at Hollywood Park.
First Dude retired with tendon injury - the handicap division just became a great deal weaker.
  • DeadHeat · This just sucks. He had just started to learn how to win and then boom. · 1155 days ago
  • BrittanyHamilton · I really like First Dude. He was my early choice for the Breeders Cup. · 1154 days ago
anyone know how tall this horse is?? he looks big
  • icyhotboo · I don't know how tall he is but his nose is long,got me 3 times in last 2 years · 1168 days ago
  • GypsyRose · He's over 17 hands. Zenyatta-esque size :) · 1167 days ago
first look at first dude since his change in running style. Looked very good only knock it was not on a dirt track
  • jinlie01 · I agree...seems like the handicap division in general is still muddled..especially in the westcoast ranks. · 1168 days ago
ZATT's Star of the Week, is .... First Dude!
That was fun to watch! Wow!
  • canes423 · The Go Go hasn't won a race in 2 weeks was letting Ron Anderson go a mistake? · 1170 days ago
  • arazi · Canes. Yes, probably a mistake. IMO, Gomez is the best rider in the country, but it helps to have Anderson, the best agent in the country. Still, hard to speculate why they split. · 1170 days ago
NOW THATS WHAT I CALL A RACE THE DUDE'S BATTLE TO THE WIRE BUT FIRST GOT FIRST AND THE REST WAS HISTORY!!
Wow! That was an awesome race!!
GO FIRST DUDE!!! :)
YAY!!!! his first stakes win!!! :D
JOSEPHE-like too see Bob try First Dude on the turf 1 1/16 or 1 mile really believe he would excell in graded company..peace
First Dude looks good coming into the Big Cap. He worked really super going five furlongs in 58 and change. I think that the mile an quarter suits him perfectly, he's got the longest stride of them all, i'd do an exacta with Twirling Candy, Fisrt Dude, and possibly through in a tri with Tweebster. There's bound to be a lot of pace, but this race looks like a pretty exiting one.

  • ugozenyatta · I do hope First Dude wins tmw, its been awhile since his last win · 1297 days ago
  • icyhotboo · I don't think they'll try and rate FD,just let him run.It is possible even if he backs up a little he can win as he can get the distance and Baffert has a way with making horses better than they are. · 1297 days ago
Can Bob Baffert be the magic that First Dude was missing ... the Big Cap would be a huge place to get his first stakes win.
How big is this guy? He seems massive when I watch his races, but I'm not sure of the exact height.

  • humphrey · This one likes the front and his Preakness showed quite a bit of grit.....and allowed me a nice place bet....Could be anything · 1336 days ago
  • tiznow · I've been saying for almost a year now that i think he could be a deadly sprinter/miler. He can take or put on the pressure and still carry it usually in the route races...cut him back to 7f or mile races and he'll be a multiple G1 winner imo. · 1336 days ago
First Dude really IS fast! He held the lead almost all the way in the preakness. He's really something!
Huge run in the Preakness today by First Dude.
First Dude is a three year old with a future. Will probably run in a Derby prep next. "I think he can be a serious 3-year-old," Romans said. "We've got one shot to get some purse money to get him into the Derby, and we've got to make it count. I'll just see where everybody else goes and make a decision based on that."
