One thing that was curious this past summer, was the fact that Bob Baffert had made arrangements to have Joel Rosario ride Game On Dude, prior to his injury, that stopped that idea. The fact that Baffert could choose any jockey in the California colony, and he opted for a jockey riding at Saratago was strange. This was to happen in the Pacific Classic.
Still miss Terry Wallace. I still hear those echoes, "But here comes the demon(Demon's Begone)!!!!!".
Laz, I've always heard the saying, "He won by a flaring nostril". With your recent post about the thickness of the nasal skin, that "flaring nostril" could also prevent a horse from losing, but, get 'up' for the photo finish tie!!! Nice info on both parts for this debate. I have to admit, I was standing on my toes, but some of it went over my head. Nevertheless, I was born yesterday, but I stayed up all night. Thanks, guys.
Nice cover bet, Jarrod. Too bad you didn't have that Tri. You had all the numbers, just not in the correct order. That would've been a rewarding $332.60 for a buck. Looks like this could be rolling you into the new year right.
Always like offspring of Candy Rides. Since this is a race pitting young fillies against one another, would you give any credence to Concave? Going off at 15-1, she was distanced badly in the BC Juv Fillies. Seems there was a checking incident at the 3/8 marker that maybe involved Untapable and her, which cost both of them dramatically. Concave came back in a race at Delta Downs, which many have likened to a bullring. The team of Gutierrez/O'Neill is one that we've come to know. If you throw her in your exotics, you could see boxcars. Anyhow, nice analysis, Jarrod. Good luck.
Rosalind; Untapable; Concave
Why does someone post on any particular topic that it is "in their opinion" followed by "their opinion, only to post numerous more times follow-ups to their original viewpoint? After their "IMO", it becomes redundant, and loses any credence of validity. JMO.
A filly that caught my attention, was Honest Lady, who ran a fast closing 2nd to Kona Gold in the '00 BC Sprint. She was past him, just beyond the finish, and he had set a track record at Churchill Downs for 6 furlongs. Check her run out. You will not see her until they are near the finish line, and she was flying. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIM8fQHHiY8
Nice article, Brian. And to think Helen Pitts had something to do with this horse!!!! She had(and lost) Curlin, and also Einstein.
One that was retired early, but beat Big Drama, was Majesticperfection. He won the Alfred G Vanderbilt Hdcp and the Iowa Sprint in something like 1:07.23
