Thanks for the trip down memory lane. That 2009 BBC was UNBELIEVABLE!!! What a truly remarkable animal. I also watched the 2010 when Blame beat her, great run by Blame, but Z won that race in the hearts of the fans. wasnt her fault she was asked a second too late to go and had the trip from hell. I lost one of my best friends this week to diabetes, he got me into this sport and we always loved "Z" the best, so for those 2 things I thank you buddy! I hope that your smiling down on all the horses now.
I think shes beyond ducking the challengers. She already tried the boys and lost so no ducking there, and you cant really say any horse is ducking thats running in the Classic. Im just thinking if she were to win he classic that would be a nice resume.
If I were Mandela and the connections for Beholders. I would go into the BCC. Sure Chrome is better as of now, but so maybe Songbird. She already showed that she can compete at that level. Even taking 2nd place of a 5 million dollar purse is a million bucks, winning the distaff is 1.2 million. and she could beat Chrome if she fires a perfect race. In a field of 14 anything can happen.
stay thirsty, how is tepin # 10, you must have made a typo, oh wait songbird #7, your just crazy! haha
I also think Mendella will skip this one. I think Beholder has her eye on the Breeders Cup Classic. I think the connections were hoping for a mediocre field in her back yard this year, unfortunately she either missed that opportunity last year or will have to wait until Del Mar. Chrome is too hot right now. So, that being said, she better get back to her winning ways before she tries to reclaim her Distaff title, Song Bird, Stellar Wind and the like might be prove to be all she can handle.
Love Javier's look at the wire...
Like Nice try on that slow, "box-in," but really. Haha, nice win
This horse is awesome, he should just stay here in the US knocking off 300-500k G1 turf races
I think tepin might be best. I llove dortmund too. Lets see how he improve next time out.
Beholder will run in the classic whether chrome beats her or not, she write up there with the boys, songbird should be happy winning the distaff, (jury still out in my opinion whos better), but i totally agree she has room to improve. Id say its pretty even as far as 3 yr olds go. Not sure if Nygist, Exaggerator, Gun Runner, Creator, Destin or Song Bird is the best. But if i had to put all my money on one of them become a super horse, id put it on Song Bird.
