That is the poorest excuse for retirement. "No big races left, lets retire early so we can make money instead!" He could've came back as a four year old but i guess racing at 4 is considered "Too old"
Thank you for posting this! I've been waiting to hear something on him.
Wouldn't trust him, but then again we won't know till the gates open on June 9th.
Mario has a mount on june 8th for O'Neil in the Brooklyn Handicap which is run at the belmont distance.
Apparently he was pulled up
Im iffy on hansen. His owner said he has some plans on derby day so hansens chances might just be ruined.
Union rags is likely to get into traffic trouble, Hansen will get into a speed duel with Bodemeister and Trinniberg. Hansen is known to act up and doesnt seem to relax till the back stretch. Gemologist has the best possible chance to win as he takes well to the churchill surface and is bred to go the distance. Daddy nose best? Could possible be in the top 5. Im still keeping TCI, IHA, and Gemologist in my Trifecta box.
Thats a shame.
