I think both Blame and Regal Ransom have big futures.
Soul Warrior was definitely overrated. Prelude runners frequently struggle. No pace allowed Regal Ransom to stroll home. Blame was clearly 2nd best and is a future graded winner. Massone ran his usual solid race to land the show.
Congrats to RR. Soul Warrior was overrated. I knew he wouldn't be up. The prelude runners didn't do well. I thought Red Lead and Electric Alphabet will be up there, but they couldn't handled the strong pace.
Nice effort by Regal Ransom in the Super Derby. Race was over after 1/2 in :49. Blame was clearly 2nd best in a fine effort, and the top two quality colts should continue to progress.
