So happy she will be back - I thought I heard she was retired! Best of luck and a safe trip!
How is this list compiled? It makes no sense to me how two horses that have NEVER even raced (Jess and Coz) can be listed as 31 and 32....??? I mean, I cannot wait until they race, but they have no business being on the Derby list barely over a month until the race without a single start for either of them!!
Didn't know he had run recently....bummer that he ran so poorly! I really liked him on the Derby trail... Best wishes that he returns to his former self! Stay safe!!!
Congratulations to the connections! Love Secret Circle! He always tries hard and I always bet on him!!! He should be getting lots of glory as the only American winner on the new dirt track!
Love Wise Dan but still cannot understand how someone can vote for a horse as a "top" horse for the CURRENT year when they have NOT yet raced in the current year...?!?!
To each their own - we all have our own lists. But, not sure why you have several on your list but no Dortmund? Very confusing to me.....?
I find it interesting that people keep knocking the field that Shared Belief faced yesterday. He can only run against who shows up and unfortunately now days, when you're that good, people avoid you like the plague!
John, the donation site says she is buried there. You say she is not. So, where is she buried and how do you know that information? It is quite disturbing to me if they are trying to raise money under false pretenses.....
But the real question now and in the future will be, are there horses in the field that maybe shouldn't be but only made it due to getting lucky winning one race....? We have all seen a super longshot win due to circumstance and that does not make him/her a Derby horse.....
A horse cannot control who shows up to run against him. When you're that good, owners and trainers now days avoid running against you whenever possible. As far as not leaving California yet, exactly right - he has not needed to, as the biggest race was located there. Later in the year, he will need to for sure. But everyone needs to remember that the planes fly both ways so why is nobody from the east coming out for a million dollar race????
