After setting those fractions to have only been beaten by a head was very impressive indeed.
Just like their sire, the good ones out of Candy Ride seem to be able to do well on all surfaces. Hopefully the same will be true with this one.
Yeah he ran a good race, he was wide the whole trip and then fought back when Hard to Port passed him to come back up for the dead heat.
Yes! Dubai Sky has started lasix free so far in all 3 starts.
As much as I like Shared Belief, because I do think he is the better horse of the two, this would be his third G1 against Chrome's 4. Main Sequence and Untapable both have 4 G1's as well so I can't see this changing anything.
I say Chitu completes the exacta.
Chitu and Midnight Hawk will go at it early and Shared Belief will mow them down in the stretch.
Lady Eli and Crown Queen were both very impressive this year. Should be fun to watch should they meet up next year.
Mine would have to be Royal Delta as well. I have only gotten into horse racing for the past 3-4 years and I had the pleasure of being at Saratoga for her 2013 Personal Ensign win. I remember when she was in the paddock getting saddled I couldn't believe how many people were gathered around taking pictures of her. Then during the race when she entered the stretch I was in awe as I'm pretty sure everyone in attendance gave her a standing ovation and then again as she came back into the winners circle, she was a rockstar. I'll always remember that experience.
Amazing how much she improved from one month to the next, 3 wins in a row after the 3 starts before that she looked like a dud. Good for her, happy for her and her connections.
