I'm not entirely convinced he has the raw talent. However, I like that he fights back when challenged. I look forward to seeing him on the first Saturday in May.
I agree that Shack and Paynter should be on this list. If they were, I'd choose Paynter. But since they aren't, I have to go with IHA. I'm a quiet spectator; I don't generally jump up and down and scream during a race. But I did for IHA's derby and preakness; he certainly captured my imagination like no other.
I never jumped off the GOD bandwagon. I've always enjoyed seeing him run, and I can't wait for next year!
I know it's too early to smell the roses, but I love the fact that he's out of a mare by Arch; it worked this year!
All that I can remember about this horse is that he had a gutsy win earlier this year.
I agree on the two-race angle; it looks as though that particular trend is here to stay.
For the last several years, two races before the derby has been the winning formula.
I think Florida in general is where he's at his best. I don't think he's won anything outside of there.
There was a speed bias in the BC, but I do believe they both deserve to be in the conversation.
