What the Nation is saying about War Academy...

Nice 2nd place off the layoff but it wasn't his best distance.
With Iggy Puglisi aboard, longshot Spirit Rules held off well fancied War Academy late to win Thursday’s $60,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita, winning by a half length while getting six furlongs in 1:08.74. Read More
Beyond excited that he returns on Thursday!

  • travel_vic · Revolution and Normandy Invasion are more adept energy wise to 12 furlongs...MAJOR problem however is that NO one can predidc who will last at that oddball distance and just about all this group will never see again. · 333 days ago ·

  • ismalli · None at HRN seem bothered Overanalyze - Has never won two consecutive starts.Arkansas Derby, the 1:51 4/5 seconds that Overanalyze ran that 1 1/8-mile in the slowest winning time since 1978, and Orb, who some consider the probable second choice behind Verrazano, ran the third-slowest Florida Derby in the last 20 years. · 369 days ago ·

  • geldedridgling · Unless a horse is in first at all calls final race time is very overrated. In this case, Overanalyze can't control how weak or strong the pace horses are, and is content to site behind a soft pace until time to draw off and, as Bejarano said, save some for the next race. · 369 days ago ·

“Then there was one.” That’s how Bob Baffert summed up his prospects for the Kentucky Derby on May 4 after War Academy was pulled up in Saturday’s Arkansas Derby under Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who at press time Sunday, was still in search of a mount in the Run for the Roses. Read More

  • Southern.Humor · Fast times at Sunland usually don't result to fast times at CD. Two totally different tracks. This is the only horse of Baffert's that has caught my fancy this year - I don't see him winning .. but he'll be fun to watch. · 369 days ago ·

Any word on why he pulled up and if he's ok?

War Academy will have a Bodemiester like race and will win very impressively.
My top ranked Kentucky Derby 2013 contender Revolutionary arrived at Churchill Downs on Friday, April 12. He will need a new rider for the Derby because regular pilot Javier Castellano decided to stick with Normandy Invasion.Read More
interested to see how this horse does, but as of right now, he seems way over-hyped.
