  • DeadHeat · Driveon, where did I ever say people take the top BSF and run with it? Some do, I have heard some people who think they are the be all end all. Personally, up until last year, I didn't have an huge problem with them. They made more sense. This year and last year the haven't. Again, the main thing here is put out the most accurate info you can, and he didn't. · 804 days ago ·

  • annalefsrud@yahoo.ca · The Much Man is a wonderful horse, there IS something about him, and wonderful to see Awesome feather go so well, and I agree with JasonM about Delightful Mary, had she not had to change out like that. Was Awesome's race, but would have been interesting to see her stride uninterrupted. These horses with such heart. And I am jealous of anyone who saw it LIVE!! · 810 days ago ·

Looks like Mucho Macho Man has filled out his big frame iand is quite the Man (Sunshine Millions Classic). I'm so glad Awesome Feather(filly and mare race) is healthy and running. Little Mike (turf) and Apriority (sprint) are the other favorites. And Musical Romance (filly and mare sprint) is another favorite. Gulfstream is the place this winter with so many returning champions training and running and some wonderful derby prospects training there. · 819 days ago ·
