  • tmallios1 · so icy you implicated rosie on another horse. 2 sprint races,where it is paramount you get out of the gate fast and clean.both horses did not have a history of being bad gate horses.yet on bot, a half hour apart. rosie gets left at the gate. as far as rosie winning the oaks. i think a little credit should be given to the filly. she was giant that day.rosie is a good jock. she is a good story ,so people tend to over rate her. she is starting to become a 2nd version of Bejarano. can't break horses in the big races. that is why raffie lost his mount on Game On Dude and many others. that is why baffert should seriously consider her as the jock for midnight lucky. in her last race at a mile. she stood head and shoulders abbove the field. close hatches was not going to beat her at a milee,and katie is nothing more than a good sprinter.regardless if midnight goes in the test or the alabama.if i were him, i would not feel comfortable with her holding the reins · 375 days ago ·

A first ever trip to Central Iowa's Prairie Meadows last Saturday night turned out to be a rousing success. The five-hour drive did not seem too long after arriving to a lively atmosphere at the combination racetrack and casino. Trackman, John Hernandez, invited me to be on the in-house television s...Read More

  • MichaelPavelick · Ruffian75, Thanks, I actually uncovered that before your poast. Kind of surprise. Possibly any Baffert horse that comes "rollin into Iowa", gets a lot of respect or Baffert has a steady history of having horses ready for the Iowa derby. One victory in a maiden claimer, and another in an allowance race doesn't deserve those kind of morning line odds. His very respectable move against Comma to the Top, is hard to deny. But that was as a 2 year old & he lost by approx. 9 lengths. · 1108 days ago ·
  • icyhotboo · That pay off was a gift with Baffert's history in Iowa.Didn't need a PP to handicap that except for the other positions. · 1108 days ago ·
