What the Nation is saying about the GP AlwOC (1/29/2012-R7)...

Excerpt taken from here: http://www.drf.com/news/countdown-crown-week-4-jan-27-2012. Sunday’s 1 1/16-mile entry level allowance looks like a much tougher race than the G3 Holy Bull if you take away HANSEN’s presence in the Sunday feature. G2 Remsen third-place finisher EL PADRINO (Todd Pletcher), regally bred Breeders’ Cup Juvenile fifth-place runner TAKE CHARGE INDY (Patrick Byrne) and Gulfstream Park Derby runner-up CASUAL TRICK (Nick Zito) are just some of the hot shots to note. For my money, EL PADRINO is trainer Pletcher’s best prospect this year, and perhaps one of his better of recent years. I love everything about the pedigree and past performances to date. TAKE CHARGE INDY has had only 4 works back since the Breeders’ Cup and might be in need of a race for fitness. Let’s hope he runs straight and true after being green at age 2. CASUAL TRICK’s pedigree will only shine brighter the longer he goes and he’s got the advantage of a race at the meet. ARGENTINE TANGO (Stanley Gold) has been one of the more impressive turf winners of the winter, and returns to a dirt surface where he’s had stakes success. What a race!
