Now that, folks, was a horse race! Very happy for Team Plesa, especially after the injury "Lucky" had to come back from.
I figured Bayern wouldn't be able to stretch his speed out that much, but I never dreamed he'd wind up finishing last.
I have to agree with Brian, Wicked Strong ran too good of a race to lose, and V E Day's victory really throws a monkey wrench in the division.
Ed Stanco is considering retiring Princess of Sylmar after her 5th place finish yesterday, though a good bit of that decision hinges upon what Todd Pletcher thinks. I was rooting for Princess, but it's been fun to watch Close Hatches develop into the monster that she is this year. At this point, I hope she wins out for the rest of the year.
Pletcher wouldn't have been my first choice for a turf filly like Euro Charline, but I'm sure he'll have her ready to fire big again come QE II Challenge Cup day.
I found it extremely intriguing that he was meant as a steeplechasing prospect, but flat racing obviously suits him just fine, too.
Adelaide may have been the best horse in the field, but Tourist sure gave it his all. Very determined, even in defeat.
The Cotillion is shaping up to be quite a race. If Pletcher does agree that's the spot for Maria, then she'll face not only Untapable but Sweet Reason as well. Very nice victory Team Repole!
Awesome victory for The Pizza Man. Wish I could have been on hand to hear the local crowd show their appreciation.
Odd move by the Ramseys in regards to Admiral Kitten.
Maybe a start in the Cotillion is up next for Dame Dorothy? That would be quite a race if Untapable, Sweet Reason and Flay's filly all showed up.
