He has enough points to make the Derby after receiving 50 for winning the Tampa Bay Derby but why would they drop him in class when they could have a leading contender for the Blue Grass after that impressive score
I find it hard to believe after the CashCall last year these connections weren't thinking Derby
According to an article by Claire Novak on Bloodhorse.com, Hollendorfer was quoted as saying "I never had the horse on the Derby trail anyway; the media had him on the Derby trail. When me and the owners discussed this, way back when we got the horse, we never were concerned about getting to the Derby anyway".
Whoa. Not really sure what started this but if I offended you in any way Tmallios I appologize. I only engaged you on the PM thing because you are the only one who responded to it, It wasn't directed at you just a general question. Like I said in a previous post I respect your opinion. I also don't really see where I was whining? I honestly don't know what you are talking about or suggesting with alias' and such. I can post from my facebook if you are so curious about my real identity but I don't know who John Rafi is and I only hold one account on this website
What? Did I miss something
I can see what you are saying. I don't agree that chasing speed 3 wide would have been perfectly placed and that he was hard ridden up the backstretch. He was 11 out of it on the rail in the Malibu. I agree that he didn't have the zip Saturday and maybe Smith didn't feel confident which is why he kept him on the rail and just tried to get into the money instead of swinging him 5 wide like Flores did in the Malibu. There is no question there was a wall infront of him from the top of the lane to the wire though. Eh, either way I'm drawing a line through this one
