Older Comments about the 2009 Champagne (G1)...

I must expand on my above comment as saying that Dublin and D'Funnybone are the 2 best 2 yr.olds I've seen this year to include Dixie Band. I just recently saw his footage in the arlington futurity and Spectacular Bid Stakes. Pretty impressive as well.
I've watched what video I could find of Dublin and D'Funnybone's previous races and my take on it is D'Funnybone likes to break quick and stay up front to then go on and draw off from his competition. Dublin, too, likes a quick break but then seems to take up that stalking position then when it's time, make that big move to go on by. Dublin, on film anyway, looks like a big colt with a big kick. But D'Funnybone has blazing speed, so it will be interesting to see if that big kick is enough to propel him by D'Funnybone or not. These 2 clearly seem to be the class of the Champagne entries.
So far this year Dublin and D'funnybone are the two best 2yr.olds that I've seen yet. Look for one of these two to take the Champagne.
