It was a good race; too bad Kobe's Back didn't get a better shot at him. Coming down the backstretch right before his fall I thought for sure he was going to win. Poor boy
Tap It Rich DOES NOT want to be a racehorse.
I agree with Sullivan on this one. That is a good picture of him but the other ones I've seen of him from the side... I don't like him. Now, we all know that horses can sometimes outrun their conformation, if their good enough. But so far I am liking Coz better.
I'm all in on this one.
Is Willy good enough? Absolutely. Here's my one beef with the situation. His spring campaign. Draw a line through the Derby. If it weren't for Verrazano, he would have won it. Hands down. Now, for the Preakness and Belmont, he was going through a funky stage. He was growing into that huge frame of his. Jim Dandy rolls around, and he runs a solid second. After that, his year took off, and he was only ever beat by a tiny nose once. He was brilliant in the Smarty Jones and Rebel though, and has beat many very good horse. Being a huge fan of him, maybe I'm a little biased, but as Brain so thoughtfully mentioned he runs long on dirt, where once Wise Dan stepped out of his miler turf comfort zone, he lost. So, should we award HOTY to a horse who can't win anything on the year besides turf miles? I wouldn't. Maybe if we lived in England. My vote goes to Will Take Charge.
at Delta Downs.
Honor Code and Cairo Prince... the next Sunday Silence and Easy Goer/ Alydar and Affirmed?
Jockey mistake today. When he realixed how slow they were going, he should have notched out the reins. He didn't want the lead, but he was the only one who had some speed. Gonna wait for his next race.
Honor Code the one nut wonder!
