This was such a bizarre race, but great runners always show up. Wow! Flintshire is world class for sure!
This is the performance I had been waiting for from Laoban. I knew he had it in him, and I was very happy to see him win.
Impressive debut winner Bobby On Fleek, named for the legendary Bobby Frankel, will go next in the Saratoga Special, as reported by Steve Haskin.
Two exciting Suburbans from Effinex!
Hopefully Catch A Glimpse will get some respect now. I've had her in my NTRA Top Ten for a while now, personally.
It definitely puts him in the mix. It'll be interesting to see how he fares against the other top players.
Siena Farm announced this morning that Riddler suffered an injury while preparing for his stakes debut in the G3 Penn Mile. Surgery was successful, but within a week of surgery, he began to show signs of laminitis in both front feet. Despite aggressive treatment, Riddler's condition worsened, and the decision was made to end the popular colt's suffering. Siena Farm buried the colt on their grounds.
The rest of the year is going to be very interesting in America's glamour division. Love Gun Runner, and I think he'll do quite well in the Haskell.
I wanted to see Effinex against the (other) top players in the division before I got too high on him. After the Stephen Foster, he has a lot of work to do. As much as I adore Bradester, I cannot in all honesty place him (or any of the rest of the SF field for that matter) at the top of the division. Although, if he follows up this SF victory with more grade 1 success, he cannot be denied an elevated ranking.
I've waited a long time for this type of victory for Bradester, Super happy for him and his connections finally getting that Grade 1 win with him.
