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.
After getting beat by Carina Mia, I have to agree with Matt's placement of Catch A Glimpse over Cathryn Sophia here.
Look who else managed to find a way to plug in Frosted :-)
I'm a big fan of Bradester. He could steal this on the front end.
As good as she is, Songbird is quickly losing ground in the HOTY race. I know many were throwing her name out there as potential HOTY for 2016, but she's really got to step up her game, especially after the performances we just saw from Frosted and Tepin.
What a race by Creator! It's just too bad that his will be linked to that whole Gettysburg debacle.
