Being a well beaten 3rd, behind Eskendereya, and losing out on 2nd place to Jackson Bend, will Awesome Act stay in the U.S. for the 2010 Kentucky Derby now or not? He's scheduled, and has been for sometime, on attheraces.com, the Ireland and Great Britain racing web-site, to race in the stanjames.com 2000 Guineas at Newmarket on the same day that the Kentucky Derby is raced at Churchill Downs. After his Gotham Stakes win, I would have thought that Awesome Act would be a lock to race in the Kentucky Derby. But having lost in the Wood Memorial, I wonder now if Awesome Act will not return to the UK and go back to racing over turf again?
  • dkubler · Does his turf form in the UK really make that a realistic target? He took four attempts to win his maiden and was comfortably held in the Dewhurst and then again when shipped out for the BC Juvenile Turf. · 2439 days ago
If Zayat sells Eskendereya to Jess Jackson, I'll stop rooting for him to win any races. I don't like how Jackson handle's his horses, and I just don't think he's that positive of a personality to be involved in the racing game. It seems that controversy and mayhem follow him every where he goes in racing circles. TJMO.
Wow... Eskendereya is the goods! Massive effort to win the Wood Memorial, and with something left for Kentucky!
