Don't leave out Witt Six in the Texas Heritage. Witt's horses have been running quite well lately, and Witt Six is coming in off a nice allowance win.
Easy Gore? Sounds like a good name for a bull... Don't recall any talented racehorse with the name though.
Also debuting is Mata Mua trained by Shug for Janney. Looks like a nice one perhaps.
What a pedigree on this mare... Wow.
There are still issues… The Turf Male category is open to horses of all ages, whereas the Older Dirt Male category is obviously for older horses. What is the best older horse in the nation is a turf horse, but there is an exceptionally brilliant three year old who is the better Turf Male? Then you would have the best older horse left without an Eclipse, while an undeserving Dirt Male champion is crowned. Turf Male must also be restricted to older horses for the system to be fair.
Love the Alysbelle on Jetsetter's dam side. Full sister to Alysheba, and a very classy mare herself. Supermason's Dosage suggests that he'll be able to handle a route. He was not an early TC nomination, but it wouldn't surprise me if he ended up nominated.
I like a few of the obvious contenders. As well as some real longshots- W V Jetsetter is galloping and about to resume breezing. If they can get the points, I rather like him. Supermason romped in very decent time Saturdy evening, with a 91 Beyer. He's got the 2 year old foundation to go woth the talent. According to a DRF article, he could show up in an Oaklawn stakes next.
He ran a VERY good race Saturday night at Sam Houston. I wonder if he'll be a late TC nom. I'd like to see him try a route against some nice competition. His Beyer Saturday was in the low 90s. He drew off and won by about 15. Calhoun hinted at trying tougher competition. I do hope they don't ruin him, but perhaps give him a shot in a points race.
Very nice. But football is generally played on turf rather than dirt. John Henry, Wise Dan, Phar Lap.
Equibase shows both running without meds. Strange.
