Point of Entry is the best turf horse in america, he'll be tough to beat at 12 furlongs. Treasure Beach hasn't been in top form and is in a slump and hasn't done well in america. Little Mike will have to run 12 furlongs for the first time, it will be interesting to see if he can last the distance. I saw Little Mike in person in the Arlington Million, if someone would have pressed him he would have lost. The pace was handed to him the whole race. I think this distance is just to far. I believe that Kindergarten Kid and Hailstone both are outsiders with little chance of winning. I bet Finnegans Wake in the Sec. Stakes. I believe Belmont will be tough at 12 furlongs for him and he'll have trouble closing facing older horses. A very exciting race...... I like Finnegans Wake's price, I'll bet him even at Belmont.

  • ILuvTurfRacing · I'd personally rather see Shug sending Point of Entry to Woodbine to run in the G1 Canadian International Stakes. There's gonna be some really good European horses in that field. Last year's BC Turf 2nd, Sea Moon. This year's G1 Grand Prix De Paris winner, Imperial Monarch, and now it looks like Ed Dunlop is bypassing the Arc with Snow Fairy because of ground concerns and bringing her to Woodbine, also. Although right now they're talking about the E P Taylor Stakes for her. But as competitive as she's always been against males, having beaten them in the G1 Hong Kong Cup and G1 Irish Champion Stakes, and finishing 3rd in last year's Arc, I wouldn't rule out Dunlop calling an audible and putting Snow Fairy in against the boys instead. Going to the CIS would give Shug a better sense of where his horse stands against some quality European horses, because he'll likely be seeing some of the same horses that will be at Woodbine in Oct. at Santa Anita in Nov. · 1430 days ago
  • MarcelloMarocco · I agree with I love Turf racing. I will be at woodbine for that race in my Ballydoyle silks cheering on Imperial monarch....the best 3 yr old in Aidens yard. Can't wait! · 1430 days ago
I dont know which race I am the most excited about this Saturday, but I think the Joe Hirsch has my vote (for now). Lets just hope its as good as last year's win by Cape Blanco over Dean's Kitten.
