Best of luck. Besides the obvious choices... horses I like are Destin, Creator, Mo Tom, Suddenbreakingnews. You?
Well hold off was the key term why I replied... so acknowledging he didn't hold him off should have just been the end of your statement. Nothing left to say... if you don't like the horse, you don't. But if youe analysis is based off him being barely better than Outwork, you should consider a reassessment.
Oh well, a length and about 1/4, pulling away. 2 lengths within yards after the wire. My point remains... Outwork had him beat by more than that at one point in the stretch and faded. Outlook was overall faster, but as the distance increased Destin was the better horse. It will be the same thing in 7 days, except more so.
To just hold off Outwork? He was putting him away. 100 yards or less to go and they were side by side, then he won by 2. If the race was another 1/16 he likely would've drew away by 5 or more
No. Even if he wins, he's going to get flat smoked in The Preakness.
Touche, not that it's saying much. My point still stands though... these horses haven't had much opportunity to prove their graded stakes value yet... too early for that, and I think it was a solid field.
There are hardly any Grade 1 races up to that point for a young horse. There are probably about 5 grade 1's on turf or dirt that I can even think of before the 100 PT preps, 4 on dirt... Do you know how many of the 100pt prep winners beat a field that contained a single Grade 1 winner? Zero.
Yeah bud, my infant knows that
Glad they're not going straight into a Grade 1 off the bench (which had been mentioned as a possibility), still disappointed he's not coming to Arlington.
Collected, Decorated Soldier, Cupid to name a few... plus whoever gets shut out. If most of these saying they will go actually do, you may have a better chance for a pace meltdown in The Preakness then the Derby and end up with a rarity (closers Preakness)
