She's my top pick, now that she is drawn outside Songbird and Stellar Wind.
Orb is my leader right now. I think its going to come down to the Jockey Club Gold Cup, because I personally don't think any of them will make that big of a splash in the Breeders Cup.
Plus, Purely Hot had a perfect trip sitting on the rail while the 2 leaders were sizzling on the lead. It was a good effort & I hope its the next step in Groupie Doll getting back to peak form.
Outlaw the Blimp Cam shot!
Like you I'm really excited to see what kind of horses Eskendereya will turn out next year. Its seems that people are sending him quality mares right from the get go.
I'm not saying its Gulfstream or Calder's fault, but with GP adding this new race meet I haven't watched 1 race from south Florida. It's just not the same when all the quality horses are up north.
Mike, I've only been to Del Mar once, about 15 years ago. Do you think the grandstand area is big enough to support a Breeders' Cup? When I was there it seemed to be a little run down. I didn't know if any improvements have been made, or any expansions if they make a run for a Breeders' Cup.
Though Little Mike is my cryptonite, I'll be interested to see if he's bounced back from his trip to Dubai.
Great call on Gentlemen's Bet & Itsabeautifulthing was so so close to landing in the exacta.
Best come back since Seabiscuit!
