Quality Road Enjoying Uneventful Season

The script didn’t play out that well for Quality Road last year during his 3-year-old season, but in 2010 it’s so far, so good, trainer Todd Pletcher said.

Quality Road, owned by Edward Evans, looms the prohibitive choice for the Aug. 7 Whitney Handicap (gr. I) at Saratoga.

“If anything, he has been able to go on our schedule this year,” Pletcher said Aug. 3. “Last year he was playing a bit of catch-up. We’ve been fortunate that so far, everything has gone according to plan.”

MM is the only horse in the field with even a remote chance of beating QR, but I stress REMOTE. I watched the videos again of QR's Donn and MetMile races. Track record in the Donn and the 2nd fastest Met in 111 years after a layoff of 3 months. They could have run once more around the track and MM wasn't going to catch him. QR's a monster. Blame's from the clouds stretch run works against inferior horses but he's never seen the likes of QR (or even MM) before.

humphrey.... Im not following your comment ??
I would be more worried about the Met Mile 2nd than any other horse in this contest.
i totally agree with ya Cugel... If there ever was a bounce candidate Blame certainly fits that category... Ran 10 lengths faster in the foster then his previous race and its very hard to replicate your tops..... QR & MM are certainly the fastest horses in hte race and the extra distance and the 9 LBS and the juicy odds ,, IM betting Musket Man....
Blame runs one big race and all of a sudden he's "the next one"???? Nonsense. He's a perfect bounce candidate. He won't even make the board. I'll take horses any day like QR and MM who've shown their quality and class over and over again.
Agreed, this is Saratoga-- I'll be playing a All / Q.R.
I'm glad Quality Road is enjoying an uneventful season. Keep on enjoying it. Because on Saturday afternoon, it's very likely about to get as eventful as Quality Road will want it in the Whitney Handicap. Having to face Blame. A colt who's talent on conventional dirt, and in the big race, rivals that of Quality Road. IMO.
