The Zayats will continue to race American Pharoah through the rest of the year with the main goal being the BC Classic. With that in mind, it makes much more sense for Shug to point Honor Code toward the Dirt Mile. You want to take on the best to prove you're the best, but you also want to have a chance to win. If AP continues to work and race like he's been doing all year, then I honestly cannot think of a horse in training that stands a chance against him.
March is turning into a good one. Certainly is doing Blame proud.
Wedding Toast sure looked the part. Untapable looked good but didn't show her usual fire. I suspect she'll be given some time off and that we won't see her again until late summer/early fall.
Darn that Amelia's Wild Ride! Ben's Cat had it until that last couple of strides.
Some horses only run well at California tracks, and then you have Moreno. They should probably stick to the East Coast, but I love that Guillot doesn't stick to just one area with his star.
I'd like Betty more if there was more pace for her to run at.
I always knew Twilight Eclipse had it in him! I was ecstatic to see him get this victory, and a hard fought victory at that.
Thanks Chris. I have a bad habit of thinking one thing and writing something completely different.
Thanks for the catch, Rick. I was thinking one thing and wrote something completely different.
I was so proud of Molly Morgan today. She's such a good mare, especially at Churchill Downs. I kept hoping she'd take the next step in her career, and today she did. Now I'm looking forward to seeing her continue to progress.
