i just wish he would have won a race after the derby. do you think his derby win was a fluke because Lookin at Lucky got a crappy trip?

  • travel_vic · Races are the result of the sum total of what happens from the time they load until they hit the wire...This colt was only one of FOUR in that entire field that qualified on the energy requirments of being 67.2 to 67.8 in medium energy...Suprising but true · 403 days ago
  • amino998 · He got a perfect trip on the best part of the sloppy track. · 403 days ago
Here are 4 of his yearlings that are for sale at FT... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151593170368922&set=a.10151593167293922.1073741831.261791448921&type=1&theater

  • Dressage3295 · Hard to judge with yearlings. They are such awkward, gangly things. The most beautiful, gorgeous horse I've ever known (mare) was one of the unappealing yearlings I have ever seen. · 404 days ago

Does anyone know anything about Super Saver's half brother Superfection, a 3yo Medaglia D'Oro colt bought for $1.2 million at the Saratoga sale? I haven't heard anything.
In the past 10 years Super Saver in the only Kentucky Derby winner (excluding Barbaro for obvious reasons) to not end up in the money for the Preakness. I have a hard time seeing that pattern broken. Good luck to orb, and hopefully he'll move on to the Belmont for one heck of a race. Orb, WTC, Goldencents. Sorry, but I feel departig is horribly overclassed here.
Supersaver had a colt. What did they name that colt?
Few horses liked the slop as much as this one.
  • travel_vic · Ever see a mud mark? Of course you haven't as they are no longer produced. · 910 days ago
  • cocoa2 · Super Saver's foals have just hit the ground. Possibly he's our link to the mud lovers. · 910 days ago
According to Bloodhorse, Super Saver's first reported foal is a filly out of the High Yield mare Yield to Faith.
Jockey Calvin Borel arrested for DUI. Now we know how he got those wins.

  • icyhotboo · steve m : after 35 years of gambling for a living excluding the last five I have a 14% ROI. Now my family is getting larger so it's back to WORK, and gambling on a professional basis is just that, hard work. · 1097 days ago
poor boy.(( love him
Iam sorry that you retired.
Did anyone notice that Super Saver only beat one horse in the Travers, and that was the maiden winner, Admiral Alex.
It's interesting how Todd Pletcher says the two week turnaround was too much. But for three of the top two, it wasn't. Lots could be said about this... all horses are different etc. But a horse like Super Saver should be able to wheel-back. I think he's a CD wonder horse.

  • cugel the clever · Doesn't take a rocket scientist to explain why Super Saver sucked in the Preakness..... he isn't a top calibre horse. He ran the race of his life at CD, had great racing luck while the quality horses had terrible luck, and had exactly the track he wanted. He'll never win a big race against top quality horses again. The Preakness was a measure of his true quality. · 1558 days ago
  • Arrrgy · In the old days the trainer would tell the owner he wouldn't abuse their horse in his name. if they didn't like it, take your horse some where else and they would stay. I'd like to think that Pletcher would have the influence to carry that scenario out. He said it was too soon so how could he possibly expect to pull off the Belmont? · 1558 days ago
Great Job Super Fader!!! You just got my trip to Belmont cancelled and NY Governor David Paterson under serious pressure to add the VLT's at Aqueduct as soon as possible so that we can have a Belmont Stakes and a triple Crown winner in 2011!!

  • cigar · It rains a lot in KY? More than everywhere else? Odd. · 1559 days ago
  • Arrrgy · It's the racing surface, Cigar. It's not made for rain. It's either rock hard or deep & cuppy. Both extremely bad. Look at the harrow marks. They're 5" apart. · 1559 days ago
Im gonna be honest, i don't think this horse is that great. He won because:

  • bband · Hard to say because Super Saver is still improving. And he has just learned to rate successfully. Although aided by a good trip, his win was not a fluke or a surprise. A lot could depend on racing luck. If he were to win the Preakness, it also depends how he does it.... because that will keep the field size down in NY. · 1567 days ago
  • gardenesque1 · Speaking of field size in the Belmont, check out the HRN Stakes Tracker. Note that 11 horses are already pointing to the Test of Champions. · 1567 days ago
What do you think?
I love this horse he was my first pick in the derby and i cried when he won, i was so sure of him i placed a $50 bet to win while I was at churchill
David? This is a horse that totally pooped down the stretch in 2 not fast races. He hasn't won since last November against a bunch of 'No impact on the trail' horses.
Super Saver sure is bred on the dame side and A.P.Indy is just part of it. 2nd dame Get Lucky 11-5-4-1 $157,760 Affectionately Hcp.(G3) 8 1/2f.

Anyone seeing any bias this year on Hollywood Park synthetic surface?
  • mdracing69 · Hollywood is definitely kind to speed types at the current stand. · 1721 days ago
  • bband · Wish I knew that before that last big P6.... · 1721 days ago
I'm very surprised there isn't more buzz about this horse. He did everything you want for a two turn race for 2-year-olds... speed, stamina, re-broke etc.

  • mshutty · Sure has moved up on my personal derby watch list. You're right,cigar, has done what he needed to do. · 1721 days ago
  • invasor · Williams Kitten is no slouch either. Nice come back after a strong effort in the BC Juvenile. Last of all on a track favoring speed and makes a huge move 6 wide on far turn. Tab! · 1721 days ago
