Older Comments about the 2010 Carter Handicap (G1)...

He may have come up just a whisker short in Saturday's Carter Handicap, but it's really great to see Musket Man back competing at such a high level again after such a long layoff with an injury. He looked first class in his February return at Tampa Bay in the Super Stakes, and he also hung in very well at Aqueduct in the Carter Handicap, just narrowly missing a 2 for 2 return to the track. I was kind of surprised that it was Warrior's Reward instead of Munnings that was able to get up to beat Musket Man at 7 furlongs however. Now if we can just get The Pamplemousse back competing again, that will pretty much have the 09' Derby contenders who haven't been retired back competing again. Also, let's add I Want Revenge to that list. He's a colt that looked to be ready to take on all comers after the 09' Wood Memorial. Maybe we could get the two back in the same race, competing against one another at Santa Anita.
Munnings is a very tough colt to beat at 7 furlongs. He definitely a sprinter, with a lot of speed over 7 furlongs or less. But Musket Man, before his injury after the 09' Preakness, was really starting to come into his own, with wins in the 09' Tampa Bay Derby, the 09' Illinois Derby, and two excellent show efforts in the 09' Kentucky Derby, and the 09' Preakness. After a long absence, Musket Man looked close to the form of old, winning the 2010 Super Stakes in February at Tampa Bay Downs. Munnings may be a bit tougher test for Musket Man than what he faced in February at Tampa Bay, but Musket Man has proven he's got a ton of heart. And if anyone is going to get Munnings in the Carter Handicap, I believe Musket Man will be the horse to do it. TJMO.
