Very disappointing, i think he would greatly benefit from a trainer change. I'm no expert but when you look at the way ROC trains to the way the big winning trainers train something just doesn't seem right.
Glad to hear it, I hope he comes back better than ever.
It's official! American Pharaoh will win the Kentucky Derby as per Jimmy Fallon's puppy predictor. He broke well from the gate and never looked back. Seems like reliable handicapping tool to me.
Article on Bloodhorse yesterday saying that Hollendorfer's assistant Dan Ward said he would likely be out 60-90 days, no word on not racing the rest of the year.
Assuming he is healthy and ready to roll Derby day in light of his recent fever.
Love American Pharaoh for the win but my somewhat longshot is Upstart, he has never run a bad race and as we all know the Derby is as much about a good trip as it is about talent so if he gets a good trip I think he can pull it off.
Tapit had definitely been very hot the past couple of years, I would love it if they would breed Royal Delta to him when she returns from Ireland. If she is half the broodmare her mother was combined with what Tapit's offspring have been able to accomplish that would be a scary combination.
He showed that he can indeed rate off the pace. I'm going to go ahead and say the Kentucky Derby is his race to lose, I think he is better than Dortmund. It looked like he was actually being eased before he crossed the wire, very impressive performance!
Very impressive, even after running in the middle of the track most of the race she completely dominates.
