Its a shame he ran so poorly, I wasn't real fond of the decision to go over there especially if this was to be his final start but i get that it meant a lot to GH Motion to run at Ascot. I would like to see them hold off his retirement (even if he'd won) and get him in one good prep race and then shoot for thr BC Turf Mile and take one last crack at that then retire.
Incredible, bad start, then has to go about 5 wide coming out of the turn and still closes! Not to mention only going 5 1/2 furlongs makes it hard enough to close from over 10 lenghths back. I'm impressed
Orb. His whole body of work this year is better than any other 3 year old. Oxbow ran a great Preakness and LeComte but besides that not much. Orb beat Revolutionary and Verazzano on the big stage and Mylute is consistent but you gotta win to be the best. A really good crop of 3's but with his wins in the FoY, Florida Derby, and Kentucky Derby it's hard to vote against Orb. But we still have the Belmont, Haskell, and Travers to figure this all out plus the breeders cup! Good summer of racing ahead!
