I don't remember reading they had made a decision, but I have not been able to keep up with things as much lately due to finals. I'll be good to see her defend her title. I still would have rather seen her run here. That is partially due to selfish reasons though, as I will be out of the house during the Distaff, and will miss it live (which is always more fun)
No Tepin? Well, that's disappointing. She has already beaten most of the boys in this field, why would they not point her here instead of the 'easier' lady's race in prep for Ascot, where she will face much tougher competition?
Wowzers, batman .. a 22 horse field? I don't know that I can really support this change. It increases the risk of injury, and honestly it kind of cheapens the result for me. It truly is going to be a case of the 'luckiest' horse winning, rather than the best. They didn't ask me though, and money talks. Congrats to the AE that drafted in.
0o I know that Judy the Beauty & Vinnie White Shoes are awfully similar sounding (Sarcasm intended) But what on earth happened here?
Because I don't have any "favorites" In the race this year ... My win
vote will go to Gun runner for the solitary reason that Geroux is riding
him. If I don't care for any of the horses, I may as well go for my
No, it won't be surprising if Nyquist, Mohaymen, or any of the of the supposed favorites win ... but I can't jump on the Fanwagon for any of them.
Good luck to all c:
I honestly doubt they give any notice, but I'd be curious to know what these connections feel about the comparison of Tepin as the 'American Goldikova'. Obviously Tepin isn't as accomplished as the afore mentioned great, but she is getting there. (And I personally can't think of grass mare that I have enjoyed watching more than Tepin, since Goldikova).
I freakin love this mare! Too easy, just toyed with the field.
It's been a hard day for the favorites. I can't be disappointed though, TN (for tha name alone) and Outwork were my picks. After the last race I couldn't buy into the hype for Shagaf.
She looked bigger, better, and stronger than last year. She also needed this race. I already liked her, but she will be my only pick fro this race moving forward.
Shackleford often acted up before races, and then there is the obvious answer of Shared belief who was often full of himself.
