Older Comments about the 2010 Blue Grass Stakes (G1)...

I really expect Odysseus to be a factor in the Toyota Bluegrass Stakes. But I wouldn't, at all, rule out Interactif being the colt that steal's the show. Interactif has been in a position to win almost every race he's ever been in. Every time he's lost, it's almost always been because Kent Desormeaux has gone entirely too wide with him. I'm not trying to run down Desormeaux. He's definitely a "top level" jockey. But I've just never really felt that Interactif and Kent Desormeaux were a good fit. Maybe the jockey change, to Rafael Bejarano will be the ticket that get's Interactif back into the winner's circle. No doubt that Bejarano is a top level jockey himself. And I'm one that believes that Interactif is a colt with a ton of potential. I really feel, with so many front runners in this year's Kentucky Derby, that a very good closer like Interactif could play a big role if the speed up front doesn't hold up for the entire 1-1/4 of the Derby. But let's see how well he come's through the Bluegrass Stakes first.

  • arazi · Interactif ran huge chasing Sidney's Candy last time out. Expect a big effort today. GQ is right... the speed bias is alive and well. Both Keeneland and Oaklawn favored speed on Friday - so keep that in mind as you watch these races. · 2237 days ago
  • mshutty · Interactif has the turf breeding that will suit the Keeneland polytrack surface well. · 2237 days ago
