Brian, I too have been following him since his first win at CD and He will be on my top line of "all" my bet, I sure hope there will be "some" pace in this year's edition of the Derby. It looks like Battalion Runner and Malagacy will NOT be running so there goes some of the early pace????
Nice interview with Chad, PJ is one of the most consistence horses this year in the Derby
Hence passed the "eye ball test" in the Sunland Derby, however for him to be a contender I needed to see higher "Late Pace" numbers and in all of his 6 races the best he has is a 93 and for a closer I would hope they would be higher, anything thoughts?
what speed figure are you using IE Gunnervera and 2 others have triple speed figues and Beasley with an 106?Beyer, Brisnet or Equibase??
IWC is the horse to beat, son of Curlin who was a fighter so I expect him to follow in his dad footsteps.# 9 Make you look is the most interesting horse in the race, Turf to Dirt no problem for this one, pedigree, speed and dirt, all say yes. Never discount having Johnny V riding
Great Show Brian & Matt
Looking forward to your insight into this year's Derby. As you both mentioned there seems to a lot of horses this year that are "Dead Closers", I would like to hear next week how you think the actually race will be ran.
I too like Cupid in the ARK Derby, I would love to see him run a big LP number with a 102+ SPD FIG. There needs to be more TOP notch quality of horses for this year's Derby, let's hope we have one coming out of ARK.
Will there be a "Special Bonus" "Preakness 5.5" for this year's Preakness winner?
I too like Far from over, he has a ton of heart and bred
Royalty by Blame out of A P Indy (you’ve got to just love that) however, it’s
his lack of foundation that I’m most concern about having only 3 starts before
the Derby. Carpe Diem mechanically moves perfectly. I’m most interested in watching
the return of American Pharaoh on Saturday. Dortmund is still by guy for now.
Curious to know how Carpe Diem is considered a NY horse. He was bred in KY and is a Keeneland Grad who is owned by Winstar and Stonestreet and has raced in 4 different states, and yes he did break his maiden on his first attempt up in Saratoga so I guess that makes him a NY horse?
