I liked the guts both Mohaymen and Airoforce showed in their wins today. Moves them both up the rankings.
Mongolian Saturday has had a surprisingly good year. Not great, but never out of the trifecta this year and second in a G3 three times.
Stephanie's Kitten has quite the Breeders' Cup record. First in 2011, second last year and another win this year!
What a filly! I really wanted Rachel's Valentina to win, but I'm happy for Songbird. Very deserving winner!
He was phenomenal! It's not too often you see two undefeated juveniles from the same coast winning their respective Eclipse categories.
Away from her home court is the biggest question for Beholder in the Classic. If she runs at Keeneland like she has at SA, she'll be tough, but she has yet to win outside of California, coming closest when finishing 2nd in the KY Oaks. That is certainly not to knock Beholder, because she has been nothing short of impressive, but as a handicapper, you have to be realistic, too.
Shining Copper gets major brownie points for setting Big Blue Kitten up for that course record win. Twilight Eclipse really got the short end of the stick, too. But as a fan of BBK, I couldn't be happier with the result.
A showdown between Songbird and Rachel's Valentina looms large on the horizon.
No matter which way the wind blows, the Dirt Mile and the Classic will be deadly competitive affairs this year.
She was remarkable. I was cheering so loudly for her down the stretch, and Michael was mimicking me! Simply can't wait to see what she continues to accomplish down the road.
