Gelded1, there is no hype, im the only one that has him in the top 10. I just love his pedigree, ur correct he could b the slowest dirt horse ever... But im guessing he will be ok. Cant wait for the spiral, when he faces Uncaptured
I just don't understand the hype on this horse for a Derby contender. He hasn't even ran on dirt yet.A toss out for me until I see him run on dirt in a race and not just a workout time.
Colts with little seasoning have a very tough time when it comes to the big race.
ok you bet the works in the derby y go broke its a track trick thay do it every year to suck the betters in i know my dad would put on a show it a bad move to bet the works
Vyjack you will see he is the truth
Balance the Books beat em all at palm meadows, which includeds 8 horses on derby watch lists
Fear The Kitten sitting 26th in points, worked 4f in 48.00. Watch out for this closer the longer they go.
Real Quiet winner Carving worked six furlongs in company with Norfolk winner Power Broker for Baffert in 1:13.60 and 1:12.60, respectively. Rafael Bejarano was up on Power Broker.
Today's workout report updated to include Flashback, Power Broker, Carving, and Brown Almighty.
Balance the Books that is
This horse has a great shot to win the derby. He has the speed and stamina, now he just needs some derby points
Balance the Books needed the bullet since a fever cost him a couple of days of training recently.
