Salty group of runners, but I'll lean toward the tactical Dayatthespa.
This is horrible news. I know this horse was an inspiration to many & it just doesn't seem fair for all the hope and joy he provided.
Key to the Mint
The Illinois Derby doesn't offer KY Derby qualifying points.
Weird that Florida Derby runners have done so well considering how many people criticize horses' form for dropping off in general once they leave GP for the winter.
I think in the past the problem with the 20 horses was that 6 had no legitimate reason for being in the race, other then graded earnings. Therefore, horses like Trinniburg (who is a very nice horse) were entered in a race they had no business being in because of some earnings he got from the Hopeful and Swale stakes. I think the new points system with eliminate most of the riff-raff and even more of the 20 entrants will be deserving of a spot in the starting gate.
