He did great despite the rough trip he had. 2nd place for a maiden race isn't bad at all.
Although I am a little disturbed by how all-over-the-track he was during the race... he was fighting hard to find his stride or place.
Could do a lot better with a longer distance next time.
If this colt got better training than he does, then he could be something big. He is determined, always tries his hardest, he just isn't conditioned the way he needs to be. Happy about his win though.
Runhappy's success will not be based on his trainers, but instead his natural raw talent.
Wow great win in the Rainbow! :D
My choices are: 1. Chrome 2. Bishop 3. Lea 4. African Story
I want to see him run in the derby. I hope and I am praying that he gets enough points for it... because I feel he has the best chance to win all 3 of those races. His Withers win was very impressive considering how far back he was and then ended the race like he had barely tapped into his fuel tank. I have a great feeling about this horse.
Anything can happen. Hoppertunity can have a really great day in this race. I am hoping he does. Shared Belief hasn't impressed me much, to be honest. Neither has Hoppertunity, but he was my favorite going into the derby once.
Not surprised SB is running once again in California. He is an average California horse, hasnt proven anything outside of Cali. NOT the best horse in the country. I have my bets on Hoppertunity, he is a nice horse.
Far From Over is a very impressive 3yr old already, he destroyed his last start, and has won both his races. I dont see how you dont see value in this years crop, you have him, you have Mr Z who will likely ripen with age like WTC. You have a bunch of really nice filly's to look out for, you have to go horse to horse and check their stats and watch their maiden video's or any video and judge them on their running style right now, dont judge them on what they have just accomplished right now, I am in love with Ocean Knight, I feel like he has some major grit to him. Last year when Cairo Prince fell short of the Derby, I hated the rest of the field choices, but I really love California Chrome now, even though he wasnt even in my head in the beginning of the year.
