He's got some definition... almost looks like a quarter horse. Thoughts on him for the derby? https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BlB-EKHCEAEHAkq.jpg
Haha. Personally, I like Mr. Ramsey. But by no means do I think he is infallible! I was talking with someone after the race saying that I'm sure Castellano would have liked to let him run rather than waste the horses energy fighting to hold him back, but there is no way Castellano would go against Ramsey's directions given the aftermath of BC juv. turf. As far as Bobby moving forward, I think you just gotta let him run and hope he lasts to win until he can learn otherwise. Not sure why they were pushing the rating - he hasn't done it before and has been working alone. Seems very immature and head strong (Might have made a nice gelding if they weren't looking for Kitten's Joy's stud progeny)
He wanted NO part of the Ramsey's rating strategy today. I didn't expect him to win today, but get him back to grass and let him run he lacks the maturity to rate.
If a slight bump prevents him from winning the Florida Derby, I don't see him fairing well at Churchill in three weeks...
I don't mean to take away from CC's potential by saying that, but the hype around Orb, retirement of IHA, and fates of many others is still fresh on my mind. At this point, I'd just love a horse with consistency after the triple crown...
He has been very flashy so far and looks to have a lot of potential. but for the sake of years and years and years of disappointment, can we start comparing promising Derby prospects to more reasonable horses? If any horse this year runs the belmont in 2:24, then I'll be happy to compare the two. (sorry for the rant, I'm just tired of getting hopes up for a 3yo phenom)
@horseracinghl: Trainer Charlie LoPresti on Wise Dan "My comment this morning was 'Holy s**t'. When he went from the 1/2 to 3/8, he hit another gear." Best of luck to Wise Dan Friday! Still my favorite horse in training

Wasn't a huge fan of 3yo Palace Malice. I have been so impressed with him this year and if he keeps this up he'll be a very deserving HOY candidate.
I liked his last race out. Granted it was against no competition, but I thought it was funny watching how hard Castellano was holding him back. Different running style that most other Kittens but he's my favorite besides Stephanie
