i figured first dude to win
its amazing i like it
TC, Coil , Nehro , Uncle Mo , Pool's Play, Premier Pegasus and Blind Luck will carry the flag for america against the best of the world. victoire pisa, so you think, rewilding, canford cliffs and work force
A win by twirling candy is good for the division, he will be the division leader and will be rated way above the others... coil will poise a treat, if he will be able to win the swaps, he will be also a contention..
aww no blind luck! too bad!!! mm if not twirling candy.. im going for Gem.. why not!

  • lesleymorley · I'm still hanging in there for Gem. Twirling Candy would be fine, too. If First Dude wins, though, I just might have to shoot myself in the head. But that's just because of how I feel about who he's named after. Poor horse...I feel bad rooting against him, but I just can't help myself. I cringe every time I hear that name. · 2177 days ago
  • icyhotboo · just watched replay of big cap- didn't realize TW was rank. that explains loss of energy.with a half way decent trip he's way the best. · 2177 days ago
these two horses Twirling Candy and Setsuko have the best pedigree.
  • icyhotboo · Twirling Candy almost fell from exhaustion at the 1/8 pole last time at a 1 1/4 mile,what's changed? · 2177 days ago
i have change my opinion for Hollywood Gold Cup, after studying the the pedegree, my selction are now. 1.Twirling Candy,2. Setsuko, 3. Game On Dude, 4. Awesome Gem, the race will be between Twirling Candy and Setsuko. the trifector :1. Twirling Candy,2.Setsuko, 3. either Game In Dude or Awesome Gem vica versa, anoother selection 1. Setsuko,2. Twirling Candy, 3. Game On Dude or Awesome gam vica versa.
I THINK IS TWIRLING CANDY DOESNT MAKE IT IN THE TOP 3 HE WONT BE RACING IN THE BREEDERS CUP CLASSIC 2011 BECAUSE HIS NOT GOING TO HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO COMPETE IN THIS RACE..WHAT DO YOU THINK IS HE GOING TO MAKE IT IN THE TOP 3 OR NOT?
TWIRLING CANDY IS A GOOD HORSE BUT I THINK HE DOESNT HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO RUN THIS DISTANCE BECAUSE HIS A SHORT DISTANCE HORSE AND LAST TIME THAT HE RAN IN A 1 1/4 MILES IT DIDNT WHEN SO GOOD FOR HIM HE GOT FIFTH IN THE SANTA ANITA HANDICAP.
i think it will be Bob Baffert's horse, most probably FIRST DUDE?
Can Twirling Candy handle Blind Luck? ... and what about First Dude?
It would be sweet to see Blind Luck in here.
