Big run by Game On Dude, he and Setsuko turned Twirling Candy into a pinball in the lane. Still, Twirling Candy looked like a miler in this one, tough trip and all he didn't have it today.

  • ajump08 · Twirling Candy pulled the same thing he did in the Goodwood. He was pulling, couldn't be rated, and I believe he would have been third at best with a clean run in the stretch. If he could learn to rate I think he could go 10 furlongs, its more mental than physical. · 1582 days ago
  • mdracing69 · You are right ajump08. Twirling Candy is his own worst enemy. He was uncomfortable throughout. I am sure Sadler envisioned Twling Candy sitting Game On Dude's trip. Setsuko was well regarded as a 3yo and might start living up his potential. · 1582 days ago
Caracortado would not be a shocker. He is nominated here. Training better than ever and the purse is a lot better here than the Kilroe.
Right now the 2011 SA big cap is not looking great! Twirling candy is the only horse that catches my eye. It needs more strong competitors!
  • horses · Baffert just got First Dude. That would be a logical spot and a possible reason for the transfer. · 1604 days ago
