Excellent horse
Can become a serious Derby contender with a big race tomorrow morning.
  • SlewStablw · Mendip look much the best - Godolphin owned - Vale may go European route. Look for Mendip coming to America. · 1663 days ago
  • ruby · Any horse with a name like Mendip couldn't possibly win the Derby... · 1663 days ago
Vale of York is a money horse. he travels, wins big purses, dodges no surface or challenge and finishes in the money. Trainer/jockey/owner combo may not be as popular as Baffert/Gomez but that just creates more value. Look for Vale of York to win big on Meyan surface as prep to Derby. Hell drop from 18 to 10 on any decent performance.
  • maverick · when a horse wins the Breeders Cup Juvenile he is usually awarded 2 yr old honors OR at the very least is named the winter book favorite for the following yrs Derby...Vale of York falls in neither category. His win in the Juvenile was NO fluke. He encountered trouble at various stages of the race, start, 1st turn, far turn, upper stretch and STILL got to the wire in time. Has to winter and prep in Dubai which hasnt worked out yet for Godolphin. One yr Sheikh Mohammed will win the Kentucky Derby his way, just dont know if it will be the 2010 edition with this horse · 1697 days ago
  • horses · I have to admit, when they crossed the wire in the BC, I thought it was pretty fluky. But sdberg's right, a horse that travels, faces big fields and wins is a money horse. He ran a beautiful race in the BC. Rated super-patiently, encountered some traffic, and made a big run. So he's got a good running style and stamina will be no prob. Can't rule him out. I should also point out that he did hug the rail and that was the place to be that day, but this horse did everything right... somehow you have to feel that we haven't heard the last of Vale of York! · 1697 days ago
Cigar, Agree on your assessment of Vale Of York's BC trip. Pace was dreadfully and artificially slow.
A perfect trip and a great ride and he got up for the synthetic win, but I don't see this horse as a serious Derby contender.
