What the Nation is saying about the 2014 Louisiana Derby (G2)...

I am really liking Commanding Curve for the KD. Slammed hard at the start by Rise Up he had to go straight to the rail. He was last for most of the race. He had to weave through traffic and was blocked until there was a opening. Great job to get 3rd. R. Albarado said he was done at the start, but the horse ran easily and had plenty left but the race was already over. Hope he has enough points to make the KD. As he will be my pick for this years KD.

  • patrick.l.mccaslin · No fallacy, I just base what I say on research. Not sure if anyone else knows that Commanding Curve broke his maiden in his 3rd start at one track and hit the board all 3 starts there. It's important to point out that it was at Churchill Downs. I think he likes the track and his 3 for 3 proves it! Just sayin! · 12 days ago ·

YOu have hit the nail on the head in energy distribution BUT many of these types are closer but never get there like many many lates> they hit the wire 10 feet too late no matter the distance. · 12 days ago ·

  • gatetowire · Honestly, I thinkuntapable is as good as it gets for the Oaks OR the Derby. Hopefully her connections decide on the Oaks, as that may prove a more practical choice in the long run. I was not impressed with Constitution, or Vicar's In Trouble. IMO, both will be In Trouble come Derby day · 15 days ago ·

  • UnionRagsRules · This horse does not need the lead. The speed never materialized and the lead was his for the taking. He runs well in a stalking position, too. He won the LeComte from a pressing position. · 16 days ago ·

  • UnionRagsRules · Also a little tid bit: He blew an abcess a few days after the Risne Star. Being a horse person who has dealt with that many times, the horse starts out lame and gets lamer. Still ran on for third, and also had a terrible post for his ideal running. · 16 days ago ·
