Good points, Brian. You failed to mention one thing, though...there's this horse named Departing who is possibly better than anything Orb faced yesterday, and he will be at Pimlico on the 18th.
What's better than picking the Derby winner on the first Saturday in May? Picking him on the third Saturday in March, when he was 13-1, :-))) .
Been saying all spring she's the best horse in Baffert's barn, Including Game On Dude.
At the moment, I'm inclined to think the best running style for this year's Derby is to have Joel Rosario up, lol.
Can you say underlay? Anyone out there remember the name of Calvin's mount in last year's Derby?
Anybody know if any of the Festival will be shown on HRTV or TVG?
Great recap, my personal highlight was Bayrir, and also the great season Francois had after being claimed by Charlie Bettis, one of my favorite under-the-radar trainers. Also, a big year-end shoutout to the Finks, who are going to class up the Eclipse awards nicely...great people, great horses!!
Point of Entry has "seemingly come out of nowhere"...really? Not sure where you are writing from, but in my world, the barn of Shug McGaughey is hardly so obscure.
The Kid, still one of the best big race jocks out there!
I'm a Dreamer or Nahrain, whichever prefers the soft ground more.
