Good to see another John Shirreffs trained horse doing well. Neko Bay ran a pretty solid 2nd in the "Big Cap" to the winner Misremembered. I do agree with Rossington though in that I'm really disappointed with Loup Bretons effort finishing 11th. Loup Breton is usually a pretty solid performer and generally lands a lot closer to the money than 11th. As to what to make of St Trinians running 6th, she's raced extremely well since coming to the U.S., especially at Santa Anita. Maybe she should consider continuing to just tackle the fillies. But I guess you really never know how well your filly will fare against the boys until you try. St Trinians may have gotten her answer to that question today. I do, however, expect her to keep running very well against other fillies and mares. JMO.
This year's field for the "Big Cap" really doesn't look as tough as the field that Einstein beat in 2009. IMO, Loup Breton will likely be the toughest of the colt's to beat, but I wouldn't rule out a strong run by the filly ST Trinians. She's raced quite well at Santa Anita since being shipped over to the U.S. from Great Britain. She's still sporting an undefeated record in the U.S., and it will not surprise me in the least to see her get up for a piece of the "Big Cap" pie.
