I am not slamming Arazi. He was a nice 2yo and miler but he was no AP Indy. I knew this BEFORE the Derby and even after Arazi's BC win(I was there). His win was over hyped IMO. The best 2yo performance I had ever seen was Landaluce's 21 length win not Arazi's BC. Heck, when Arazi was in the BC mile in 92, I was very hopeful he would win....But then there was Lure.
Here is a really great article by John Sparkman about A. P. Indy being a sire of sires. http://www.opencomputing.ca/ormonde/ftp/A%20P%20Indy%20sire%20of%20sires.pdf
LOL. Arazi? At least Bimelech hit the board in the derby. Indy was by far the best of his crop.
Next start for THAS will be the telling point. He wil either run huge or be sub par and not go to the Derby. Still don't understand why Mott wants only 2 preps his race yesterday showed his fitness level IMO.
