Wildcat Red doesn't seem to be making any lists this year at all...he's pretty high on mine right now.
He should be in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile.
I'm definitely more impressed with Honor Code, but both colts ran Huge and showed a lot of maturity for their ages. I think Ride On Curlin needs to be mentioned as well. With a closer trip he could have finished a lot closer than he did.
I'm right with you Brian, love it!
I loved this post Chris, read every single word! Congrats to Angela, what a great achievement.
I'm really looking forward to watching this race.
This was a really great idea for a post Ashley. I used to work at a Feed&Grain place years ago and we carried a bunch of magazines and I remember reading a facinating story about a champion jumper who was injured and the owner decided to clone him. Incredibley the clone had abilities close to the same level as his "doner" but they never tried to approve him for competition. I think cloning is a neat idea and it's incredible science has come that far, but for the most part I'm opposed to it. I prefer to keep what's unique solely unique.
It would have been amazing to see her in the Breeders' Cup, but I still can't seem to feel any dissapointment from such an amazing career. Most top notch horses don't even run 20 times during their career anymore.
I would have loved seeing Bodemeister race the full year, but he really showed a lot of class in his six starts. I do have to say though that I think Curlin's Arkansas Derby was mor impressive, not just because of the larger margin of victory, but because he wasn't touched with the whip and won without expending much effort.
I'm not too concerned about the low Beyer or the fractions, it looked very easy for Vyjack and I loved the way he kept striding out with his ears pricked after crossing the finish line.
