General Quarters was a really cool horse, I hope he returns healthy as well.
The have the Donn Handicap as a winter goal for Friesan Fire. Might be wise to run him at Fair Grounds since he enjoyed so much success at that venue earlier this year. General Quarters is also back in training. Nice to see some of the injured 3yo's returning to action.
I think, under Steve Asmussen this colt will come back swinging as a 4yr.old. He looked to good early on in his 3yr.old season when he won the Louisiana Derby not to. Maybe somewhere down the line we'll get the Pamplemousse, Dunkirk, and I Want Revenge back from injury, and these four will hook up with Quality Road and Summer Bird for a 4yr.old version of the Ky.Derby that never transpired last year. Add Musketman to the list as well, and we'd have some race.
the brawler is back!
