WITHERS QUOTES   Robert Reid, winning trainer of Afleet Again (No. 4): “We really hadn’t considered this race before Wednesday. It was a small field, and I love the one-turn mile for him, and the big, sweeping turns here. My only instructions to the jockey were to take hold early on, and hopefu...Read More

  • rossington · I can't really see any of the horses listed to start in the Withers Stakes being much of a threat to beat D'Funnybone. This colt is really good on conventional dirt. Why this colt isn't on his way to Churchill Downs is a mystery to me? · 1462 days ago ·
  • mdracing69 · D'Funnybone does not have the foundation to give the Derby a shot. If Dutrow believed he had a Derby contender he would have run in races like the FOY and Florida Derby. · 1462 days ago ·
Multiple graded stakes winner D'Funnybone worked six furlongs in 1:13.70 with jockey Edgar Prado aboard April 16 at Aqueduct in preparation for the $150,000 Withers (gr. III) next weekend. The chestnut son of D’Wildcat is 5-1-0 in six starts around one turn, including victories in the Swale and the ...Read More

  • cigar · Good... he needs to stay sprinting. Talented in that space. · 1466 days ago ·
  • railbird33 · Cigar's right-Not his distance. "Lost in the Fog" started down the Derby trail, but his distance was 6-7 furlongs. He went undefeated into the BC Sprint were tragically he faltered due to what developed into terminal cancer. I think Dutrow knows what he has in this talented colt. · 1465 days ago ·
