Matt, I know you're a Main Sequence guy, but I think Telescope/Magician will be ultra tough. Hardest Core would be my 3rd, only because he has more tactical speed than Main Sequence.
Don't forget some of the sneaky California horses laying in the weeds...Majestic Harbor & Imperative.
Just tragic. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
The sophomores have a strangle hold on this division!
As long as everyone stays healthy, it could turn out to be a more compelling race than the Classic, considering all the defections that division has had the last few months.
It appears to be that way. Close Hatches, Untapable, Beholder, Iotapa and everybody else.
Great story, Tony. I'm very sorry to hear about Suffolk & I can totally sympathize with the feelings you have. I was the same age when I learned the game from my father & our home track, The Woodlands, closed in 2008.
Mary, I'm actually a big fan of Don't Tell Sophia. I just think if she was up to the caliber of these, she would've traveled to Saratoga in the summer. Why are you worried that Close Hatches didn't run at 10 furlongs? The Distaff is only 9 furlongs & that didn't seem to help Royal Delta last year. The Del Cap is really the only relevant 10-furlong race in this division & Royal Delta in 2012 is the only horse to pull that double off in the same year since the creation of the Breeders' Cup.
My apologies, Princess of Sylmar did win earlier this year. I stand corrected.
Well done, guys. I really enjoyed the show.
