It is interesting that Christophe Soumillon(winner of the 2005 BC Turf) will be riding for Todd Pletcher. I'm wondering how often he has come stateside.
You need yourself a gander, you silly little goose. Giggle, giggle. G'on & getcha one. Tee-hee.
With the recent transition back to dirt, not many horses will have an edge with previous experience. This should make for a handicapper's utopia and possible bonanza. 123 days until the showdown.
I am excited about his future. To come from last place in the stretch, and cover the mile in 1:33.18, and the first mile of the Belmont a little over one hour later covering 1:37.99, makes me excited about when American Pharoah and him meet up. Shug McGaughey has been very careful in bringing this one along. He could be setting on a keg of dynamite. A rivalry that will be short-lived.
Congratulations, Brian. The beauty of this area is incredible, especially during the changing of the leaves in the fall. Breathtaking sight. Hey, and you can get a front row seat for the Breeders Cup, since you've got a head start. I'm happy for you and your family.
I did attempt to locate possible entrants for this race, but there was nothing indicating the upcoming race. It goes off Saturday, 6/27, and is a Grade III, $250,000 race. Entries are listed on Equibase for the day before 6/26, so, I will presume that they unveiling of this field will occur tomorrow. Could not find any article(s) to reference any "name" using this race as a stepping stone. Maybe this could be a task for jbyrnes? He is resourceful.
Thank you for a very informative explanation, Jeff. I appreciate your resourcefulness. I hope you pursue this as a career.
Nicely written Joanne. Kinda reminds me of the Pete Rose HOF issue. Rose fans feel he's deserving, despite his original acceptance of the lifetime ban. No mention of "Shoeless" Joe Jackson ever being deserving. Guess this is a sports debate that will never find finality.
Once again, you have hit the nail on the head. You visionary, you. Tell it all, brother, before you fall. And then, there were none.
Oh, you're a stitch, sugar britches. Wink-wink. You silly little goose. I wonder why when they're on the ground, they're called as a group, a gaggle. Get you a gaggle. Loads of fun. I'm stealing time, but I don't feel guilty, 'cause the time was mine. Giggle-giggle.
