Didn't fire at all today.
I think she has a good shot here, if you toss out the Florida Oaks where she did not show up at all her turf performances were pretty good.
Back on turf this saturday in the Sands Point at Belmont.
Runs saturday in the Mystic Lake Derby at Canterbury Park.
Verrazano was retired last month due to lameness.
I don't understand the need for some people to undermine what this horse has accomplished. Nobody has said that he is the greatest to have ever lived or that he's better than the all time greats. He is a champion who gives it his all everytime he gets on the track and wins most of the time. Especially for us younger fans he is one of the greatest that we have had the pleasure of watching in our time and he deserves the praise and respect that he gets.
Today was indeed his lucky day! Glad to see him get his G1.
He really is something else, he refuses to lose!
I agree on GOD but SB is very impressive.
Fractions were way to fast for the Dude to have a shot and even with those fast fractions he fought hard all the way, I think he still has some good ones in him. That said I don't know he would have beaten Shared Belief even with a slower pace, SB is an absolute beast and in my opinion the best horse in training. If he had been able to go on the TC trail I think the outcome would've been very different.
