Govenor Charlie's dam was unraced. His second dam, Silverbulletday won the Miss Preakness stakes. His second tail sire Real Quiet (the sire of Govenor Charlie's sire, Midnight Lute) won the Preakness Stakes. However, tracing directly back through only his female line (dam, second dam, third dam, etc.) only one horse produced by this female family has won the Preakness. I hope that clarifies it for you CauseForConcern
Terrific article! I agree that Orb and Verrazano are the top 2 to beat. Only 4 favorites have won the Derby since 2000.
Travel Vic, spoken like someone who doesn't know the first thing about 'capping on the Poly. Bias can cange during every meet, be it dirt, turf or synthetic tracks. A good example is this year's GP turf.
Great article as always Brian! Thanks for the Kudos!
Purple Egg had a fever and was scratched from the Pasco. His last breeze was January 6.
Testa Matta won the Japan Derby (listed) at 10F
