Union Rags-2012 Triple Crown winner!!!!
What a tough race to handicap, but then I put the video on and it suddenly became apparent that there was one stand-out in this field and his name is Union Rags. He has the look of something very special. The may be running for 2nd.I am intrigued by Daddy Long Legs by Scat Daddy as well as Optimizer by English Channel. If Union Rags doesn't fire look for one of these two to be there to pick up the pieces.
im going with hansen
Juvenile Trifecta: 7 Creative Cause, 10 Union Rags, 11 Daddy Long Legs
#10 Union Rags is the 2-1 favorite in the BC Juvenile.
I'm counting down the days----praying everybody gets there safe & sound (literally!)
Nominations are done. 16 horses are registered. 4 are cross entered.
hansen, jus think he's speical, but like to see Alpha closing again.
Hansen is going to be a star. Hes really fast, but does he have enough stamina?
