  • Lisa111 · Sulivan, he did the same thing with him in his last race on turf. He went to the lead and you can see him getting pulled back. Again, im not givin excuses, he was ridden the same way in his last race on turf. Pablo has speed and stamina comin out his butt and likes the lead. · 112 days ago ·
  • rafirox · Lisa, I have saw your posts on him and I bet large on Pablo... I hope he does better next time. He looks like he has potential but he is a bit raw. @Floridaf, yes, I was impressed with how both of them finished. I was impressed with General A Rod's race more, though. He broke well. When they broke I thought he had the most natural speed. The jockey decided to take him back to stalk, which I thought was a perfect move. He got moved at the right time, his stride was nice and long, and he fought hard until the wire. I do want to see him perform without a perfect trip, which he got today, but his run against the speed bias was impressive. · 112 days ago ·

  • equineplay · Two races, looks like the real deal. Hope he doesn't peak too early. It would be a good west coast rep. · 160 days ago ·
  • tmallios1 · He is supposed to look good on the poly,let him show the ability to handle the dirt.Then maybe he can generate some excitement. Just like all the Candy Rides,except a little bit of Sidneys Candy who fizzled on the dirt ,Misremembered who was a nice horse and Chocolate Candy who is good.This sire has not done anything on the dirt. I for one will wait this guy out. Like i said, he is supposed to run over the carpet or turf. · 160 days ago ·

  • UnionRagsRules · I'm leaning Debt Ceiling but I get the feeling he is more of a sprinter so I'll go 1st- Strong Madate 2nd- Honor Code 3rd-Debt Ceiling 4th- Ride On Curlin. They are all sooo talented though it's SO hard to choose! I might change my mind when I see them on the track tomorrow :) · 200 days ago ·
