Getting back to arrogate I had him at 12/1 5 / 1 and 6/5 he's paid for two tarpon trips to Tampa bay a very well bred racing whippet and a. wager on classic empire . . All in all arrogated a great guy
Hey Mark Kennedy, I know your the IWC bus driver and I wish you well and enjoy your comments. What do you think of this being his only work since the Wood when it seems that everyone else that raced that day has worked twice and one was at Churchill Downs?

PJB56 --- its standard practice for Graham Motion to work a horse 3 weeks after a race. Like he said, he will not change anything just for the derby. He wants to stay in his routine. Now with Battalion Runner and Malagacy, much of the speed is gone. Look for IWC to set in a stalking position 3rd or 4th. I see him having the lead entering the stretch getting the first run on AD and CE. If his speed figs and beyers are correct He might be able to hold off all the late runners.
Well I'm really happy, no matter what happens he will get his shot at the Derby, which he had earned by consistently closing on G1 competition all the way from fall 2016 to the present and always looking like 8.5 and 9 just wasn't enough for him. I am not expecting him to win but I am expecting him to put up a good performance and hit the board. If it weren't for Always Dreaming he'd be my Derby pick but I'm not picking against a horse that can go 9 in sub 1.47.50(which is about a 1.5 second edge over CE and even more over the rest of this years relatively pathetic crew of major prep winners). I also think there's weight to the view of those who say Sonneter is a bigger threat to the field than LAL, as he was gaining on CE faster and it would have bothered me a bit to say my fav get in and not Sonneter but since Sonneter's in now as well, I'm not bothered at all. At the end of the day I just want as many horses with a legit chance to win to get into the race!
Officially a Derby starter now, Corey Lanerie is announced as his rider
I hope he destroy the field!
OK, so out of the Derby, but what about the Pat Day Mile as a race for him?
another front runner out....
Hence, Patch and now Sonneteer. Good to see them back and with a triple threat.
Next poll question(s): In your opinion, the best horse to win any two legs of the Triple Crown (since 1928, when it was first coined as a Triple Crown), and fail to win the third (there have been, I think 33) is: a) Spectacular Bid b) Native Dancer c) Damascus d) Point Given e) Alysheba f) Sunday Silence g) Other Obviously, given how I framed it, my choices would be between (a) and (b) - but I actually would choose (b), since had Native Dancer won the Derby, everything else being the same, would have retired an undefeated TC winner, and likely be a top three all time, possibly even #1. Had Bid won the Belmont, he would have been a 27 for 30 TC winner, and certainly top 5 all time, but not a #1. Obviously Man O'War is the greatest to ever win two legs, but it was not thought of as a Triple Crown then, so they skipped the Derby.

Ricardo Santana, Jr gets the mount for the Derby.
Graham Motion announces that Irish War Cry will post his final Kentucky Derby work tomorrow at Fair Hill and will ship to Churchill Downs on Monday.
TVG announcer reports Battalion Runner out, will probably train for the Dwyer at Belmont.
BREAKING NEWS: Trainer Todd Pletcher announces that BOTH Malagacy and Battalion Runner are OUT OF the Kentucky Derby. He has been unhappy with the way they have been training lately and the decisions were made by their respected owners to not run. This means Lookin at Lee and Soneteer are now in the Derby. Royal MO is now the first one out.
Baby Shack. PLETCHER trainee...broke maiden at Keeneland in first try!
Worked 7F in 126.2 with workmate Ziconic. Poor Z. Gormley ships Monday. Sherrif still considering shipping Royal Mo as well.
His progeny continues to tear up the track. 2 yr old Salmanazar just wired Keeneland's 4th. Love Shack!

I'm seriously frustrated with all these other tracks getting top horses and Canterbury gettin practically nothing. That combined with almost all of my CBY stakes contenders losing and there being no racing in Minnesota only makes things worth. What is Canterbury doing wrong?

  • Roses4U · The politicians padded their back pockets with too much Mdewankantonwan money. Opening this year on Derby day was stupid, they got a huge crowd last year when they opened on the 20th. Suppose they're hoping for simulcast dough. · 5 hours ago
