I rarely get excited about 2yo colts this time of year. However, I liked everything about this colt's dominating first out win. It wasn't the 6.5 length win or the final time that impressed me the most. I liked HOW the colt ran fast and still accelerated at the end of the race. He put away the horse he was on the pace with and finished strong. The 2nd and 3rd place finishers closed to get their placing. Typically speaking, the closers normally look good towards the finish line as they gallop out past and or close to the winner. Not in this case...this colt was all alone and looking great with his ears pricked all the way to the turn in his gallop out. He looked full of energy as he galloped back to the winners circle. This colt has the same sire as his stablemate Gun Runner. He looks like a darker version of Gun Runner. His jockey will wear the same Winchell silks as GR as W is the breeder and owner of Reride. I believe he was shipped to Saratoga with Gun Runner earlier this week. I have a feeling the connections decided to skip the Bashford Manor with him as they have bigger and better plans for this colt. Again, I rarely get excited about 2yo this time of year. Heres to hoping Reride continues to develop and lives up to the talent I believe he has.
I like the way this colt won his last race. It looks as if Winchell has another nice 2yo colt. However, I must say I believe his stablemate (Reride...also owned by Winchell) will be the 2yo to watch going forward. Reride has the same sire and connections as Gun Runner. Reride looks like a darker Gun Runner. Looking forward to see how both of these colts develop.
Nice filly. I hope she gets a little rest and shows up later on at Saratoga. If this filly can stretch out her speed...she will be a good one. I have my doubts. I'm wondering if she simply developed faster than the colts and fillies she beat in the Kentucky Juvenile. Time will tell...looking forward to her next race.
Think he'll be running in the Coral-Eclipse on the 8th?? He's up for two races possible in the next couple of weeks.
This is a very precocious 2YO colt. But running too fast too early among graded stakes company will cost him next year as a 3YO. 2 of the last 3YO male champions (Chrome in 2014 and Arrogate in 2016) didn't win any graded stakes race when they were 2.
Here's an article that caught my eye. Thought it was pretty interesting. If it's been posted somewhere way down on the comments, my apologies. Here it is: https://www.twinspires.com/blog/2017/3/28/seasons-arrogate-how-do-you-measure-great
I had not heard of this horse before (even though he occasionally raced nearby at Parx), but I love horses like this -- gallant geldings who just soldier on. Horses like this do the yeoman's work in thoroughbred racing. Enjoy your retirement Ben. I am sure the grizzled, cranky old railbirds at Laurel will miss you a lot.
Happy retirement, Ben's Cat!
Glad to hear he's being retired. Best wishes.
Here's an update on Chrome! Sounds as though his life is ideal and everything is being done to ensure his safety while in Chile! https://www.thoroughbredracing.com/articles/why-california-chrome-getting-top-marks-his-work-breeding-shed/
In 1741, James Hoskins of King and Queen County in Virginia’s Middle Pennisula imported Dabster, foaled in 1736. Dabster’s grandsire was the brown horse Hobgoblin from the Godolphin stud. Hobgoblin was a contemporary of the Godolphin Arabian, and he was also a grandson of the Darley Arabian. Dabster is considered the second blooded horse brought to Virginia, the first being Bulle Rock. - Virginia Horse Racing: Triumphs of the Turf By Virginia C. Johnson, Barbara Crookshanks Bet Baffert could bring him back off the Long layoff better than ever :)
As Winx has not been retired I wonder why she is not listed in these rankings. Some horses that have not started in the US are listed and surely she is considered to be somewhere in the top horses currently in training. Thoughts?

Ben's Cat retired, per King Leatherbury. Will be sent to Kentucky to enjoy his old age.

  • Chris Cuozzo via Disqus · You clearly don't understand camera angles and how they work in relation to the finish line. The camera at Thistledown is before the finish line therefore skewing the view in the favor of inside horses. · 1 day ago

Irap was considerably the best vs Girvin - Irap got a terrible early ride, and frankly had no business winning. Girvin got the big-time jump on him but Irap left no doubt who was best.
  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · You could also say Mike Smith on Girvin moved too soon costing him the race but I do agree Irap got a terrible ride and was still able to overcome that and win · 1 day ago
Beach Bum Worked 4F in :46.80 today - 1/60. have not raced since breaking maiden in 1:22.83 as a two-year old.
  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · Waiting to see the video of this one. Last week's work was not that great for him, still getting the cobwebs off it looks. Look for him running at Delmar · 1 day ago
