ajump08 I just watched the replay of the Southwest.Thanks for bringing it to my attention as I didn't realize it was also his first start of the year.I would appreciate your analisis of that race if it's not to much trouble.thanks
J P's Gusto should not be forgotten in the Rebel. Many will look at the likes of Astrology, Sway Away, Elite Alex, Alternation, and Archarcharch; and throw this one out saying he's simply not a two turn horse. J P is very versitile, and arguably could have been the best of the Southwest with his troubled trip. He's obviously thriving in Arkansas with his bullet work today in 59.40.
