  • Sullivan · You all forget that he wasn't going to run from the Churchill Downs race to the Fourstardave. That he ran here was just them being generous and throwing us a bone · 293 days ago ·

  • AnnaK · Wanted WD, with Silentio and Mr Commons duking it out. Forgot how beautiful Mr Commons is, My God, although he's looking abit more sire like with adulthood. My imagination or was Charlie looking concerned with WD's feet after? Looked preoccupied in the picture and interview with Battaglia. (Hope it's just imagination or nothing) · 372 days ago ·
  • likin sparks · I was kidding about Skyring though he did surprise me by not ending up last, Mr. Commons looked good but hasn't won a race in over a year so I think the connections need to try a different tactic most liking involving distance. · 372 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · I believe Wise Dan is one of the best horses I've seen run, period. He runs on all surfaces, any distane, always fires, and he's a gelding which is good for the fans as we'll get to see more of him. Aside from Frankel this is the best horse runninng today IMO · 560 days ago ·

  • jasen.mangrum · AmbitiousD, I'm not sure about Summer Front, but I know Silver Max is being pointed to the BC. I know it was 1 1/4, but he's not in the top 10 after that performance against straight 3 year old. Plus, if Obviously & Little Mike both show up for the BC mile, he'll be in for a long day. · 582 days ago ·
