What the Nation is saying about the 2011 American Derby (G2)...

Yes, I know Banned has looked great in winning his last two races at Churchill Downs, but anyone at Arlington Park this afternoon for Million Preview Day, has to have a similar thought as me right now … Willcox Inn is in the running to stake claim as the finest sophomore turf horse in the land.

  • christysontheweb · I thought that the Modest was a great race and that Fantasia (albeit a little green in the stretch switching leads) was impressive and most importantly she found all the right openings to give her a great trip given the running style. All I can say is WOW Willcox Inn and Robby A!!! MOST impressive indeed I say they go for the big one. Tajaaweed won nicely too but WI was a tough act to follow...great racing coast to coast yesterday! · 1018 days ago ·
