There's a Summer Bird colt in California named Second Summer that I've been watching. Finished a fast closing third from way back to just miss the win at Del Mar. Looks like one who wants distance.
Keeping my eye on this beautiful colt. I've been wanting to see a Kitten's Joy/Unbridleds Song cross for awhile.
Had his connections chose a different (local and winnable) prep for the BCC than the Penn Derby, Chrome's HOTY odds would be much lower. That being said, I still give him the nod for the honors.
Has anyone read the book "Wild Ride" by Ann Auerbach?
I sure hope you're right about Gulfstream. Too much potential ruined there these past few years.
I'm hoping that all the talk about him heading to the Cigar Mile is just speculation. I've never heard anything from Shug about where HC is going but it seems like a non-G1 at Aqueduct would be a better place to begin a comeback.
Definitely not surprised to see these numbers coming from a Lukas horse. Still not totally convinced by this filly, but hopefully she'll get a little break before her 3yo campaign.
seven races in six months for a two year old... seems like a lot.
I haven't been around much lately but wanted to check in to say how impressed I was with bobby this weekend. Check the comment history and you'll see how high I've been on him since his first race at saratoga. Not always the most consistent but he showed a lot of maturity in that dynamic run yesterday and I'm so happy to see him find success on the big stage. I think he could get a mile successfully next year, but wouldn't be surprised if he was shipped back for every stakes race down that hill in 2015. Stay healthy buddy.
Just because someone doesn't passionate follow or actively root for a horse does not mean they "hate" them. Can't remember if tmallios or travelvic says this but only idiots hate horses.
Can she not run because of the medication used to treat her? Don't know too much about the vet side of the issue. A real shame, but I guess I won't feel so bad about missing the BC this year.
