Really think this colt is headed in the right direction, get him going on turf and switch to the main track when the time is right. It doesn't seem like a bad plan, let a horse adjust to racing on a kinder surface-turf, and then let them go on dirt when they have developed both mentally and physically.
eh, all the rankings seem off kilter to me. I think there should be separate divisions for all ages, even though it's quite ridiculous to hope for that.
I agree. She was one of my picks for the Oaks and look how that turned out. Sixth with no real excuse. Three trainers in two months? Something is off here. Untapable is the best 3 YO filly out there IMO, and her connections didn't want to risk HER in the Preakness. I don't like it one bit
I was hoping they'd go Blue Grass but apparently not. McLaughlin made the mistake of his life not running him in the FOY, he needs to run in the Blue Grass if he wants this horse at the Derby.. otherwise he'll just be a fall star I guess
Honestly, I thinkuntapable is as good as it gets for the Oaks OR the Derby. Hopefully her connections decide on the Oaks, as that may prove a more practical choice in the long run. I was not impressed with Constitution, or Vicar's In Trouble. IMO, both will be In Trouble come Derby day
Couldn't agree more!
He's going to dominate this field. With his training and the way he can accelerate on the far turn, I have no doubt that he'll be right there with General A Rod on the far turnt
I agree. I think he needs a monster race to wake him up. unfortunately, he hasnthad a work since 2/26 so that's never good.. waiting to see if Baffert has given up on him yet..
