I've been a fan of Classic Empire since last year and I'm not giving up on him. With that said, Irish War Cry is very hard to ignore. As of right now, he's my guy and I can't wait to see him in the Fountain of Youth.
This crop is so good, that I truly believe that their will not be a Triple Crown winner this year. The field is too good. Atleast at this point in the season.
  • Horse longevity · Having mentioned it, I think this is the reddest horse we have seen since Secretariat. But unless his heart size really is 22 pounds, I don't think he will look like Secretariat going all the way through the Triple Crown. Maybe the Derby alone is a possible win, and I could entertain this being a Triple Crown winner if his foaling date was February 2nd like American Pharoah or even been 3 days later where Exaggerator was. But for a May 2nd horse to win the Triple Crown, not going to happen, at least if you factor in that the last 3 Triple Crown winners before and after the drought have come from February. You would have to go back to 1937 (literally 80 years ago) with War Admiral, the last and only time that a Triple Crown winner had a foaling date this late, also on May 2nd, and make everything now just like it was then. In those days, it might have been just a matter of being the better horse. Now days, all the extraneous factors have come into play. A Triple crown horse not only has to be the best horse, but increasingly seems to have to have a significant age advantage in days over the others when it gets harder like American Pharoah did in the Belmont for instance (February 2nd for him compared to March 19 - April 28, for the other 7 horses). We should get a more fair clue in the Fountain of Youth though. · 2 days ago
  • Pebbles via Disqus · Maybe. I still think at this point last year's crop had shown more class. But we shall see. You could be right. · 1 hour ago
I think she is on par with Arrogate at the moment. Winx is quite a horse. 15 straight? More than Frankel. 10 grade 1 wins? As many as Beholder. She won this race so easily. "Oh isn't she great to watch!"
Irish War Cry's work today was sensational, rated nicely in 13.40, 37.60, drew off by 3 in 101.80, and out huge 113.40, 127.80. Looked very professional with tons of energy left.
Western Reserve is a scratch
The long stride/ground cover of Tapwrit should be well suited for the longer distance Triple Crown races. Will be interested in seeing if McCraken's short, rapid, choppy strides hold up at the longer distances.
  • T.C.Grant via Disqus · Very possible true in what you said,maybe he was feeling for footing,I had a mare that could not doing anything there,the sandy deepness ate her lunch,last race there she was beaten by 25.Shipped to Delaware First beaten by a nose, second start she won by 5,but tapwrit was flying qat the end. · 3 hours ago
