I am wondering as well.
Haha J, "like" ;) And as far as Ziconic goes, I actually like it fairly well when I say it on my tongue. It sounds pretty good, actually. And it sure as hell beats the name Cozmic One (which should have simply been Cozmic if you ask me)
Don't tell Man O' War that.
Well, my favorite 3 year olds still on the scene are California Chrome, Samraat and Wildcat Red. Obviously I am doubting all 3 will be around in the end because unfortunately if there is a duel they could all kill each other in a game of speed. Honestly, though, if all goes well and CC turns out to truly be the freak I believe him to be, there will be no beating him. But I'm saying if he doesn't show up I'd love for one of the other two to get it done.
Barbaro in 2006 would probably top my list of favorite Derby calls. God I loved that race. But I also really liked the calls for Monarchos and Winning Colors. Also, while a lot of people knock Durkin's call of the 2009 Derby, I actually really liked it. The fact he didn't even see Mine That Bird until he'd roared well past added to the drama of it.
I don't think he'll win if he goes to Kentucky, but I am a fan of this horse and think he will improve with age and experience. I hope to see him around next year as a strapping 4 year old!
I'm thinking FILLY!
He should mature into a very nice looking animal. He appears to be a pleasant mix of both parents.
I wouldn't care if he makes the Derby next year or not. If he does, that would be cool. What I want is for them not to rush this colt. Start him when he's ready and don't get swallowed up by the Derby fever. If he goes to John Sherrifs, I don't think we'll have to worry about that!
Three foals by Lucky Pulpit? Hah. Starting to remind me of the "marriage" between La Ville Rouge and Dynaformer.
