I hate to agree, but I think you're right.
Personally, I think Gun Runner stands a good chance of being in the mix in the stretch drive. His tactical speed will be a good quality to have this year.
Trainer Eric Guillot is currently looking ahead to the G1 Preakness for G3 Gotham runner-up Laoban due to the amount of defections necessary for the colt to make the Kentucky Derby field. Had the Pat Day Mile been carded for a week earlier, Guillot would have elected to run Laoban there as a prep for the Preakness.
Trainer Bob Baffert reports that Cupid was found to have an entrapped epiglottis after his 10th place finish in the G1 Arkansas Derby. The son of Tapit has been sent to Rood and Riddle for surgery, and Baffert hopes to have the colt ready for the G1 Preakness on May 21.
Personally, I think Nyquist's Florida Derby victory or Gun Runner's Louisiana Derby wins were more impressive than Exaggerator's SA Derby win. I think the slop really enhanced his performance.
The fact that Trojan Nation is IN and Mo Tom is OUT has so many people in an uproar right now. Though in a sense it's hardly fair that that is how things have worked out this year, I still like the points system better than the graded earnings system.
She did it so easily! If she had really put her mind to it, the track record, as well as the stakes record, would have been hers.
Credit to the filly, Miss Temple City. She just kicked off a great grade 1 turf weekend!
I was less than impressed with Melatonin's Big Cap win, mainly due to the overall depth of the field and Effinex's hives. I think he'll be a non-factor here.
Owned by Runnymede Farm, Pampering gave birth to a chestnut filly by Orb and will next visit Cairo Prince.
