Dullahan is definatly in contention, and praying he stays well, he has quite a good shot. I, personally, feel awarding him Champ 3-YO, would be merited. Too many 3 yr olds can't stay injury-free (granted due to poor training, imho), so why not award it to a healthy horse?? Perhaps this would encourage trainers to be more careful? I mean, I was so upset when Hensen (a big love of mine) was run too far, when he was much the best at shorter distances. This push, this ego driven desire, only produced injury. I knew it was coming, and I am not a rocket scientist. Many other trainers fall into that camp too. Let's award a healthy horse!
I enjoyed this so much. I know how difficlut it can be to get/prepare a young animal ready. You did a remarkable job!!!
Can't wait. I love Shackleford - even in defeat, he has so much grit!!
Indy has gained my respect, and I totally love Calvin, and his ability, amazing. Indy will be a force. He sure has the pedigree. I love Hansen, but there are so many talented 3 yr olds poised, it will be very hard to pick the winner.
I always doubt the experts, when it comes to the Derby. My bet will be on Hansen.
I think Mo has some competition!
The Kentucky Derby plot just thickened once again....
