  • UnionRagsRules · He's THE MAN. Period. Glad to be a fan of such a hard working horse. It's almost as if he acts like he's tired, and tells the other horses "ya know what I'm just not feeling it today..." Then when he spots the wire he says: "Just kidding! Eat my dust." Love this running style. It scares me, yes, but it's very thrilling and quite amazing to watch. His heart, determination and pure will power (no pun intended) have captured the hearts of many fans, including me. Here's to a long and prosperous 2014 for Will Take Charge, and may you're big white blaze always reach the wire first. · 139 days ago ·

  • jay.harrison.52035772 · Palace Malice had every right to be wide, as he had first run on WTC. They make it sound like Palace Malice pushed him wide. He was already wide and WTC went wider. Had nothing to do with pushing him wide. If WTC was in a bad spot, then Palace Malice was in a pretty bad spot also. · 142 days ago ·

  • Mike in SB · Looks like a two horse race. Will Take Charge seems to be in top form and will be very hard to beat, but Game On Dude will be tough. Uncaptured has a chance, but I don't see any other horse winning. It could be a very good race, hope the weather is good. · 151 days ago ·

  • Euro Trash · At the moment, I am leaning more toward The Apache. I am not sure Mull of Killough last jockey said that he might want more cut in the ground than he will get. I still like him better than Guest of Honour, but Guest of Honour is the most progressive of the group. But, I think The Apache is sitting on a huge run. · 245 days ago ·

  • amino998 · The author left out part of Shug’s quote…. after “It was a mile and an eighth on soft turf there, so I have no problems about what I did,” McGaughey said.>> He continued with “A mile and a quarter at Belmont isn’t like a mile and an eighth at Churchill.” >> Shug left out the part about Wise Dan :) · 315 days ago ·
