Having seen Macho Again lay Einstein to waste on the dirt in the Stephen Foster makes me ask myself is Commentator any better of an older horse than Einstein? I think most would say no, but I do kind of feel that Commentator is just as effective on conventional dirt as Einstein is. Not so though on synthetic or grass. If he performs like he did in the S.F. at Churchill, Macho Again will be hard for anyone in the Whitney to beat.
Being a fan of Commentator, I was happy to see him win his prep for the Whitney. I'll be rooting for him but I hope the old "war horse" isn't overmatched in this race by Macho Again. Plus who knows what other tough competition may end up entering by race time.
I really love Commentator. How can you not. He's kind of "Lava Man" like in his own way. Just when you think he's all done, the crafty old pro surprises you and keeps on winning. I don't know if he'll win the Whitney or not, but I truely wish him all the luck in the world. It nice this day and age when most really good horses are lucky to be kept running through their 4 yr. old season. That's why I love Commentator. He's about what? 8 now. He's like the enegizer bunny, he just keeps going and going.
