What the Nation is saying about 22 Nominated to Longacres Mile...

A very good horse from Hastings, ran third last year in this race and recently just missed breaking a 35 year old track record at 8.5f, has a good shot in this one: Teide. This horse was initially the property of Darley Stud in England but was culled to bring in more classic prospects and sold to Swift Thoroughbreds of Vancouver. He is part of a stable of yearling purchase (Burj Dubai, originally cost 1 million US and Nuumany, a huge strapping AP Indy that was over $800K) along with several lesser ones who grace the winner's circle on a regular basis.
