Will this race be televised? I can't wait to watch Optimizer stomp Point of Entry and Twighlight eclipse.

  • Southern.Humor · The connections are doing an excelent job of running Optomizer into the ground. I'd be shocked to see him anywhere close to POE. · 1391 days ago
  • Sullivan · Hmm... assimilationist takeover? Calumet Farm knows just what they're doing running Optimizer and if you notice he still runs well. They tried to go for the big dirt purses and couldn't get them so now they're on turf and doing damn well. Optimizer has never needed a big break and goes out every morning with his ears pricked. I think the connections are doing a FANTASTIC job of running Optimizer into a successful career. You preach about how you want old school this and old school that, but when it is handed to you on a silver platter you shun it. · 1391 days ago
1 - Point of Entry, 2 - Optimizer, 3 - Finnegans Wake, 4 - Twilight Eclipse.
