  • zxswordxz · Maybe we can see the same as 1973 when Secretariat ran third in the Wood. But I doubt that cuz the great Sec had an abscess in the wood. Why wasn't Mo firing on a cylinder? We'll find out in the derby. · 1102 days ago ·

  • ajump08 · J P's Gusto should not be forgotten in the Rebel. Many will look at the likes of Astrology, Sway Away, Elite Alex, Alternation, and Archarcharch; and throw this one out saying he's simply not a two turn horse. J P is very versitile, and arguably could have been the best of the Southwest with his troubled trip. He's obviously thriving in Arkansas with his bullet work today in 59.40. · 1129 days ago ·
  • icyhotboo · ajump08 I just watched the replay of the Southwest.Thanks for bringing it to my attention as I didn't realize it was also his first start of the year.I would appreciate your analisis of that race if it's not to much trouble.thanks · 1129 days ago ·

  • ArturoLaguna · Just curious what equine/handicapping credentials Mr. dubby30 possess to question the training methods of Bob Baffert . With 3 Kentucky Derby wins to his name and several other winners in the other legs of the triple, Baffert's training modus operandi seem to work. As Steve Haskins of The Bloodhorse wrote: "Leave the training to the trainers" · 1141 days ago ·
  • 12 Clip · Astrology runs like a plodder. I don't even think he's worth talking about at the present moment. I don't think there is anybody in Steve Asmussen's stable that will be good enough to even make the Derby this season. Steve is a great trainer, and his horses are still getting used to their environment in So. Cal. As for Bob Baffert, it's a known fact that he likes to get the most out of his horses in the morning. Whether that's a waste of a horse is obviously up for debate. It's hard to knock Bafferts production in the 3-year-old series over the past two decades. · 1140 days ago ·
You think Kentucky Derby winners always come from the usual faces and the places? Mine That Bird’s shocking win less than two years ago should have gone a long way in dispelling that myth. In my quest to uncover every possible stone...Read More
