  • EP Taylor · Benji, and Sully. You two have given me a good laugh. Just getting schooled and don't know when to quit. Maybe if you two read what TV, and Laz are writing you would understand, and also realize they are giving you facts. Did Groupie Doll ever carry the weight of a car on her back? and beat males?...no.

  • Mary Z. · That inquiry in the Santa Anita Handicap of 2011 was so controversial at the time. maybe it shouldn't have been, once the order of events was clear. Game On Dude was doing fantastically coming into that race with his allowance won over When We Met, though, as I think he is for this year's running. I like Ron The Greek very well, but I really think I'll stick with The Dude. Mike Smith should have him budget out his speed, and win at Dude's favorite track. About the Sunshine Millions, it was a two horse race for the past two years. This year, with Mucho Macho Man out of it early, Ron The Greek was an easy winner. Game On Dude didn't face much in his prep in the San Antonio either. Looking forward to the meeting of two top males, and the very good gelding Called To Serve. Dude, Ron The Greek, Called To Serve. · 499 days ago ·
  • icyhotboo · I haven't seen a form for the race but of the horses familiar to me RTG is usually in top form this time of the year. Game On Dude, if there isn't a horse in there that can force him to the 3/4 in 1:11.0 he'll have it all his own way. · 499 days ago ·
