Jacoby. He just might win the Sprint Champion Eclipse next year.
Glad to see him back. I'm expecting this guy to really show his stuff n 2014.
Honest Lady came from a great family. She was a half to Chester House (the 2000 Arlington Million winner), Decarchy a $700K winner and Empire Maker (Belmont winner and top sire, etc.) Earlier in 2000 she finished second in the Met Mile when coming from 8th and last place.
Certainly nice for the fans though from a breeding standpoint it could be a gamble. He's now reache3 a pinnicle with his BCC win and back-to-back G1 victories (his only two). An average year next year could put a damper on his potential and fee.
Sadly in a way Goblin that the fillies and mares now have their own BC Sprint and we won't see many, if any,fillies tackle the boys like we used to see thoughout most of the 90's
Sprinters from the late eighties on that I liked: Pine Tree Lane (2nd in the ’86 BC Sprint to Smile); Very Subtle (won the BC Sprint in ’86 at 16-1 over odds-on Groovy; Xtra Heat (won 26 sprints and many at the highest level. Was 2nd in the ’01 BC Sprint and 3rd in the ’02 Golden Shaheen); Desert Stormer (winner of the ’95 BC Sprint); Safely Kept (2nd by a neck in the ’89 BC Sprint and winner of the 1990 BC Sprint over Dayjur and Black Tie Affair (who would win the ’91 BCC and be ’91 HOY); Soviet Problem (winner of 15 race in 20 starts and 19 of them sprints and 2nd by a head to Cherokee Run in the ’94 BC Sprint); and Meafera (2nd by a neck in the ’92 BC Sprint and again 2nd by a neck in the ’93 BC Sprint). What all these have in common is that they were fillies. Males I particularly liked were Kona Gold (won the BC Sprint in 2000 at 6); Artax (won the ’99 BC Sprint against one of the strongest fields ever which included future Sprint winner Kona Gold and Big Jag the Dubai Shaheen winner). In his career he had two 123 Beyers and a 124 Beyer; and Reraise (the ’98 BC Sprint winner which won 8 of 9 lifetime and yet started his career in a maiden claimer).
Wow. A post from three years ago. Do still have any of thaty money Icy? Hopefully you managed to grow it into an even greater fortune?
Thanks Goblin. I thought there was a connection.
Cause. Isn't Helen Pitts married to Asmussen's assistant trainer?
