Definitely thought he's be in the Classic
Not commenting on the exact 'cause of death' here, but for what it's worth I had family at Keeneland this weekend who took a look at the horses in the paddock before the Mile. They said that Skyring was looking very sluggish and tired beforehand.
This has been a huge year for racing, and the top horses have deservedly stolen the headlines for the last few months. But can we take a moment to enjoy the accomplishments of this great daughter of Kitten's Joy? Like Beholder, she has raced at the highest level since her 2 year old season. In 5 years of racing, she has competed in G1 races in every year, and boasts wins in G1s at the ages 2, 4, 5, and 6. She's one of my all time favorites ladies to race, and I truly think her consistency in so many seasons of racing puts her in company with some of the greatest american turf fillies of all time.
Nothing wrong with that 2nd place. He looked good, seemed to take to the surface, and will relish the extra furlongs come breeders cup.
Here's a nice filly out of the Peter Eurton barn. Absolutely demolished a field at Los Al to break her maiden at first asking and looked really good doing it.
Not happy to hear this news at all.... I'm always a big fan of the Phipps and Janney horses and was excited for them to have a top contender in the BC.
Bold choice ;)
The last time Wise Dan won a race was LAST OCTOBER. What a worthless horse!!
Seriously people, this crap is getting old. I don't care if you like American Pharoah or not, it doesn't bother me if you prefer Frosted or any other horse, but why are people so insistent on diminishing the accomplishments of horses they don't like? It's to the point where if a horse can't go 20 for 20 lifetime with 15 G1 wins they don't deserve any respect. One loss and a horse a wash up.
I'd personally love to see her go to the Big Cap. Hard to not target the biggest race in her own back yard and the country that early in the season.
I never said he'd win or even be competitive. I'm not a Mr. Z fan at all. But look at his trainer. If Lukas can manage to get this horse into a BC race he's going to do it. Unless a miracle happens this horse isn't getting into the Classic, but I think there is a slight possibility he could get into the Dirt Mile field. No way he could beat the likes of Private Zone.
