I really thought Shining Copper was going to get the job done in the stretch, but Lukes Alley was certainly sitting on a big effort.
Very nice! Sounds like it's on to Dubai for this son of Medaglia d'Oro.
Hoping to see him against Nyquist sooner rather than later.
I would love to see a rematch against Rachel's Valentina before Songbird takes on the boys. I think Valentina has some growing to do and could provide a better challenge this year than she did in the Juvenile Fillies.
Flexibility couldn't get it done today, but Mohaymen sure looked good. I really liked the tenacity shown by Sunny Ridge today, though.
Boy did Mohaymen look good today! I wish a stronger field had showed up, but you can only race against those that enter the gate.
I'm pretty excited about this card. I'm not sure what happened to Big John B in the San Gabriel, but I, too, am excited to see him back.
Welcome aboard, Jenn!
You called it, Brian!
Leparoux's name is in there.
