  • buds · Cant wait for this guy to run healthy, I think he will do well at 9+ furlongs, hope he is healthy and treated well. No need to rush him back · 23 days ago
  • Jay S. · Sure looked good in the Rebel. · 23 days ago
should be working soon? Could be a wrench in California Chrome's championship season, starting with the Haskell
Will not attend the Belmont either. He had minor surgery today to remove a spur in the left front fetlock. Will rehab in Lexington for a month. Per BH twitter.

  • Dressage3295 · Well, there goes one of my derby picks. Hope it's nothing serious and he can run in the Preakness · 92 days ago
With him out, does Pablo Del Monte get the 11 hole or do they slide everyone in and put him on the far outside?
Hoppertunity scratched from Kentucky Derby. http://www.drf.com/news/hoppertunity-scratched-kentucky-derby-pablo-del-monte-can-run
Hopper out. Free Roll: Play the Derby Trifecta Challenge at Racing Factions, win a share.
This horse is scratch from the Derby due to foot issue? Just saw a on American Best Racing website.
Love what I am hearing from the Hoppertunity work this morning. (5f in 1:00 1/5 / Strong gallop out / Left SW Drill in his wake.)

  • tmallios · I am not attacking you. Trainers know exactly when there horses are over the top. Do you think that they will come out and say it publically. The fact he came back and won the Preakness id the proof to my statement.Not that he had an off day. The fact he did not put an effort into the Derby ,almost rendere the race a workout at a long didtance. He never exerted himself in that race. If you want to believe in what you are saying that is great. My point is that nobody on this site has loved this horse or has been tooting his horn since the beginning of the year. That is why i was so adamant for him not to run. The accomplishment everyone today is applauding is what i feared most. Hopefully he will recover and put in a huge performance on Derby Day.Believe me,i have alot of interest in the futures. Like i said,just look at Bellamy Roass Wood Memorial and tell me that wasn't effortless to the naked eye. But just like Point Given,it must of been an off day or there is viral video wheras Javier and Mott are taking the blame. · 117 days ago
  • Sullivan · The theory works because between the SA Derby and KY Derby he fired a 5f bullet in 57 and change. When the Preakness came, he had run well in the derby and had easy works · 117 days ago

If hoppertunity loses Santa Anita derby does mike smith ride intense holiday
on March 30, Hoppertunity worked 5F at Santa Anita on Fast Dirt in 1:01.20 h finishing 26/42.
look out boys hes improving all the time
100 Beyer in the Rebel.
Will go to the Arkansas Derby or Santa Anita Derby.
Gets the job done even after the stretch battle between him and Tapiture.
  • AnnaK · I sort of in a perverse way enjoyed the "you move, no you move way!" drama of it. Tapiture had to get through, and shoved Hopper over and the chain bumping reaction started. Hope no injuries. · 139 days ago
