Some well-bred babies coming soon for sure. I hope Cool Comfort runs well. As you mention she is from the Ruby’s Reception family. My friend bought Ruby in 2001 after 9-11 when prices were so affordable. She won her debut and was 7-3-2-1 in her two year campaign. She won a stakes at Ellis that year, and placed in both the KY Cup Juvenile and Alciabiades earning about $210,000 that year. Laura do you know who is training the filly out to Tough Tiz's Sis? Baffert?
You said CC has faced better and his accomplishments tower over SB. Obviously, yes since SB missed the TC season. The question was who IS the better 3 year old. I suppose CC “IS” the better 3 year old but who will be the better race horse in the near future can be up for discussion. SB is undefeated and shown some brilliance. He is a fresher animal than CC who has to recover from the toll of the grueling TC. Some don’t, just look thru the recent results of horses running in all 3 legs of the TC. If they would face each other in the next 60 days at 8.5-9F I would lean to SB at better odds. Hopefully they get to settle it on the track. Sidebar - Who you got in a future Coburn v. Rome matchup?
TIz Wonderful sure drops win early types. Add Wonder Gal to his list of winners. We should she more of her at SAR over the summer. Team Pletcher will be locked and loaded so expect some fireworks in the baby races at SAR. How is Discreetly Mine doing as a new sire?
Lots of well bred babies to follow this summer and fall. This will be especially useful for the upcoming SAR and Del Mar meets.
Apparently one person’s garbage is anothers treasure. I found this a good read. I enjoy following and betting juveniles. I suppose Johnston 5 not so much. Keep up the information flow on the kiddies. Maybe some of your readers and I can turn it into pari-mutuel gold.
MJ is facing the best of the west coast. He will need a set up but to his credit 10F is not an issue. How many horses can say that in America these days? The big workout was faster than he normally works.
The Prioress was a grade one in 2006 when Wildcat Bettie B won it from off the pace. She beat Wild Gams who is the dam of the nice mid distance Almost Famous. My best friend owned WBB and I remember it well.
I agree the interest in the Triple Crown seemed to reach new heights. As you put it the TC is thriving. Like you Brian, I too am a patient fellow. A relevant question to consider also would be are the horses thriving under the current configuration?
This is very interesting. I wish Empire Maker had stayed in the US. I think Palice Malice is sitting on a big year. Time to tackle the toughies PM.
Very interesting read. I have been watching the Belmont since 1969. I love the race much more than the overfilled Derby. I will miss Danza. Let’s hope the dominoes don’t start falling.
