Great meet for fans and horse players. Tough track to cap!
I agree on a few points here Brian. Firstly, being pressured under fractions is a lot tougher than when you are not. Secondly, the third quarter was very demanding and likely hurt AP chances. I do think he should have been able to with stand these fractions and heat still in this group and clearly did not because he was shipped cross country twice in a month and was not his full self. I also think he has run on easy leads in each of his last 3 starts allowing him to save a ton for the stretch. Regardless he is a great horse and was deserving of the Triple Crown
Great work here Laurie. I have been impressed by a number of those you discussed. Clearly Uncle Mo, but Girolamo has been GREAT. Looking fwd to seeing how it plays out.
Great training job by Fawkes! Epic work. Got Lucky continues to improve. Top two in betting are a bit overrated IMHO. Untapable was once a superstar but she is not nearly what she was
This horse is a warrior. It was over when they let him get off that easy. Take nothing away from him though. He brings it each and every time. Happy for the connections!
Gallant effort by all three top finishers. The third quarter was the hot one and in the end cost Frosted and of course AP. Hope they understand its okay to lose and run him again.
I think Texas Red is better than folks are stating. Im expecting a monster effort from him on Saturday. Hope he challenges the big horse.
Happy for the Rachel fans out there!
Ive really enjoyed my first month or so playing Derby Wars survivors. Made it to end only once so far and 35 others did. Looking fwd to continuing to learn them and playing in some bigger $$$ ones too when they become available. Good luck in the Travers one Andy, maybe ill jump in
An incredible year of racing. Between Pharoah + Beholder you have 2 of the best of my lifetime. The others are all stars too. Still more time too! Cant wait for the Breeders' Cup!
