I thought she was in trouble, too, when the opening quarter went up in 25 and change, but her closing kick is amazing. If Viva Carina had not interfered with her, Lady of Shamrock would have won the Santa Barbara outright.
Royal Delta is back in the U.S., and Mott says that she is doing well. He has not, however, mapped out a plan for the rest of 2013 campaign.
Very eloquent. RIP Storm Cat.
The pace wasn't as hot in the FL Derby, which made Orb's win even more impressive. I wouldn't be concerned about the times in those two races as a sprinter was setting the pace in the FOY at a distance that many consider to be an extended sprint.
Thank you for doing this story, Matt. Brian summed it all up best.
Anyone else thinking that the Oaks is looking stronger than the Derby?
Could have been a stakes race with the caliber of field that was assembled. I questioned the Appleton scratch, but Motion sure knew what he was doing.
RIP Slew City Slew, sire of ever popular Lava Man.
I wrote about Elnaawi, too, not too long ago. I thought his 3rd place finish in the Gotham was quite good considering all the trouble he endured in that race. He's improving, and I believe he has tons of potential.
