Exactly. They're ruining the sport. They're probably just as bad as the people who want racing banned. People need to leave our sport be.
This could be the race of the year.
I love this horse. I wouldn't be surprised if she decides to go against the boys in the Breeders Cup Classic.
Nominations for the Mystic Lake Derby are out. Nominees include A Lot, Alabaster, Barbados, Courtier (a half brother to American Pharaoh), Firespike, Granny's Kitten, Nun The Less, and World Approval.
Keen Ice has been confirmed for the Travers. Not the question is who the jockey will be. If Texas Red goes to the Travers, Kent is going to have a tough choice. If he chooses Texas Red, who should ride Keen Ice?
I wonder what's next for this horse.
And you saying our track is not good enough compared to some of the others?
Again, thanks for responding. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who has the same amount of love. passion, and respect for Canterbury. When I was looking through horses that could come up here, my first thought led to Bill Mott. After all, he did train last years winner Long on Value and had a horse in the Lady Canterbury on Saturday (I was at Canterbury when they ran the Lady Canterbury) and he has two horses who a have a good shot, and those are A Lot and Closing Bell. It works well because Winstar, who owns Closing Bell had two horses up here last year named Twelve Tribes and Shared Life. They both won and were claimed. But then I thought perhaps the Ramseys and Mike Maker would send one. They had Gung Ho in the first Mystic Lake Derby and have had lots of success here. I was thinking maybe Granny's Kitten, Luck Of The Kitten, or International Star(if he's 100% ready ) since I haven't heard anything since he was scratched from the Kentucky Derby. And my last horse I projected was Bolo before what happened in the Belmont Derby.
Also, Unbridled never raced on the Canterbury turf. He made one start here as a two year old and that was a 2nd in the 1989 Canterbury Juvenile to Appealing Breeze. (I wasn't even born when that race happen) It's crazy that I know that.
Thank you for commenting. All I wish is that we could just get at least one legit horse to race here. After all, when the track was known as Canterbury Downs , we had all kinds of champions, current and future. We had Unbridled as a two year old and Fourstardave before he became the Sultan of Saratoga, we had Smile and Success Express before they became Breeder's Cup champions.
But now that our race will remain on the grass, if any of the horses who ran in the Triple Crown races or the two year old races in last year were to come up here to run, who do you think it would be?
