I have heard the rumors that supposed to scratch in the Travers. I sure hope that those statment are not true. He stands an excellent chance to run 2nd. With Red and Frosted,to go along with Keen Ice. He will be going off at generous odds. Should presesnt nice value in the 2 spot.
what a field too bad no shared belief
On Saturday, Flintshire becomes a G1 winner at 12f/2400 meters on 3 different continents after he wins the G1 Sword Dancer Invitational at Saratoga. Book it.
Does anybody know her status?
Won this race last year with big payout. Have to include Falling Sky at the bottom of your SF. Go back and look what happened last year with Capo Bastone. It is an interesting race to to handi cap.
Anything new on our precious Lady Eli? I hope she's still doing great ..
Here is the straight exacta AP over Texas Red. AP wins in 1:59.2. Texas Red is 7 back.
Bahri, sire of 2001 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (Fr-I) victor and sire Sakhee among 16 stakes winners,has been pensioned from stud duty at the age of 23 due to declining fertility , Shadwell Estate Co. and Girsonfield Stud and Racing announced Aug. 28. A Kentucky-bred son of Riverman—Wasnah, by Nijinsky II, Bahri raced as a homebred for Sheikh Hamdam's Shadwell Estate Co. winning the 1995 Queen Elizabeth II (Eng-I) and St. James's Palace Stakes (Eng-I). Bahri began his stud career at Shadwell Farm near Lexington and in 2003 was transferred to Derrinstown Stud in Ireland. He later was moved to Frank and Susan Corbett's Girsonfiled Stud and Racing in Northumberland, where he stood the remainder of his career. Article on Bloodhorse
Any word on this guy?
For all that think Upstart will run a clunker, FYI Upstart is 2 for 2 at SARATOGA!!! I think he will run a bang up race... for SECOND!!!!
Foolish decision. He'll absorb an off the board beating when he could have been a winner of the Penn Derby.
No Brainer here guys and girls......AP WILL win, and Frosted will come in second. After that, it could get dicey as Texas Red has never run this classic distance and I expect him to fade a bit down the stretch. Look for Keen Ice to be closing, but also Smart transition making a move down the stretch. 2-6-7-10, or 2-6-7-4
So, Frammento, Keen Ice, Tale of Verve, Frosted, and Upstart are lining up to take yet another beating from Pharoah? Texas Red is the only one with a shot at challenging him tomorrow. I'm calling Texas Red for the win.
RIP
Has relocated to Dana Point farm in Pennsylvania.
What people do not realize is that AP is a closer also, the difference between AP and other closers is that AP starts closing from the front of the pack, or just off the pace........how will any horse ever catch him if they start closing from mid-pack or further back. The only chance of AP getting beat is if he gets pulled up by Victor due to some sort of injury or there is an infraction or incident of some sort.......this is horse racing, after all; I remember last year watching Wicked Strong in the Jockey Club Gold Cup throw his jock RM to the dirt as he then took the lead without a jock on board.....crazy, unpredictable event, and it can happen at any time in a horse race. Was just glad to see that RM recovered from that spill, and it was interesting to see what a horse does without a rider coming down the stretch.
And is Rick Violette the biggest cry-baby you have ever seen?
I have heard through a racing enthusiast and former jockey acquaintance of mine that AP worked over 7f prior to shipping, which he said was unusual because prior to a race horses are typically backed off to work at 5f, which he said is known as "five"ulous. Are that any experts out there that can confirm or deny whether this is accurate and if so why would AP have been asked to work more.
Upstart has been confirmed for the Travers.
Here's how the race will play out....... AP will go out quickly to the lead and then throttle back to set slow or moderate fractions. Nobody else has the speed or willingness to challenge him early. Smart Transition will be a couple of lengths back in 2nd or 3rd place. At about the 7F point, Frosted and Texas Red will make a move in tandem from the middle/back of the field, pass a tiring Smart Transition at the head of the stretch and close to within a length of AP. VE will look back and see the challenge, tap AP, and AP will accelerate away to a 23 second final 2F and win by 5 lengths; leaving Frosted and TR to battle each other for second. Frosted will outlast TR and take 2nd by a half-length. A couple of lengths further back, a tiring Smart Transition will take 4th, barely holding off a closing Keen Ice. The others will be far back. Final time will be in the range of 2:01 to 2:02.
