Mike, dear friend I can assure you that I've looked up the race six times, including the first, which I saw in person at a sports book in Caracas, until I saw that Haynesfield hits his door in the starting gate, I can assure you also that not have happened this mishap, Haynesfield out another, and another had been the result. Tell Mr. Ryan might not be as fussy and if you want to go further than what good has achieved in his career, to look for Bob Baffert or go to the grave of Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons Thanks .... PS: The worst hockey I've seen in my life is called Pat Valenzuela, I leave you there, buddy.
Really, how big of a shock could it be that Blame was able to beat Quality Road in the Whitney Handicap? I've been saying for sometime, that Blame is just as equally talented as Quality Road. He just hasn't gotten nearly as much publicity as Quality Road has. Look at the field that Blame beat in November's Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs. It was a G2 race, with an all G1 winners field. Blame beat Santa Anita Handicap winner, Misremembered. Multiple Grade 1 winner, Einstein. G1 winner, Etched. Plus Bullsbay, Macho Again, and other very tough, Grades Stakes winning horses that were in that race. I think Quality Road and Blame are without question the 2 best conventional dirt COLTS in America. Just today was Blame's day to be #1 among the colts. JMO.
This will be the best conventional dirt race we'll likely see for sometime. I don't think there's any question about the fact that Quality Road and Blame are the two best colts in America over conventional dirt. Blame has 6 wins in 7 lifetime starts. His only defeat was a 2nd place finish to Regal Ransom in the 2009 Super Derby at Louisiana Downs. Blame has won the Curlin Stakes, Fayette Stakes, Clark Handicap, Schaefer Handicap, and most recently the Grade 1 Stephen Foster Handicap. Quality Road has 7 wins, 2 place, and 1 show in 10 lifetime starts. Including wins in the Fountain of Youth Stakes, the Florida Derby, Amsterdam Stakes, Hal's Hope Stakes, Donn Handicap, and most recently the Met Mile. Blame and Quality Road are certainly both at the height of their game right now. So it was almost inevitable that the two were going to collide eventually. With both of these great colts in the 2010 Whitney Handicap. It should make for one of the most interesting conventional dirt showdowns for quite sometime. JMO.
  • humphrey · How many arces touted to be match races in a race turned out to be nothing of the kind: Whicheone/Gallant Fox, Aloma's Ruler.Conquistadore Cielo etc etc. Tunnel vision can be costly. · 1609 days ago
The match-up between Quality Road and Blame in early August's Whitney Handicap should be fantastic race. I think the race could have huge implications for whichever horse comes out of that race the winner, for this year's Breeders Cup Classic.
