He's good but he's not nearly as good as Laffit Pincay! That man can race. He's going to be at this poker tournament this September! I hope I can go, cause they are giving fans a chance to meet him. Go here if you wanna sign up.. www.sportslegendschallenge.com -Ana B
I think Jarrod can get to the quarter faster than most of these.
Pace? What pace?
Summer Bird is definitely the now horse on the way up... but he will need some sort of pace to run at...
Outstanding breakdown of the race, Jarrod. The scenario you paint seems very probable. I don't hear many talking about Summer Bird. He finished on equal terms with Chocolate Candy in the Derby and was actually closing the better of the two. He will be far back in a paceless race but thinking it wouldn't be a shock to seem him catch a piece. What do you think?
