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.
I agree with Markay Soll...Steve Coburn squashed any chance of California Chrome winning this award with his outburst after the Belmont. I think Wise Dan would be an obvious choice at this time, considering his massive fan base and all that he's overcome to make it back to the races this year.
Condo Commando ran great inspite of yhthee fact that she drew the rail and broke slowly. Cool to see Durkin get choked up when thanking the fans during his goodbye speech.
Nice effort from Palace, but East Coast sprinters not looking like strong BC contenders in my opinion.
I don't think she wants any part of Untapable.
Just got to watch the race & after watching him finish with that flourish, I can't disagree with Zipse's star of the week.
He ran a phenomenal race at a distance that's not optimal and against the toughest field he's ever faced.
