Not sure what you are talking about....but but enjoy his comeback.
I am not sure what all the fuss is about. Bern Identity got beat by a very nice horse and most likely ran over a track that favored horses that tipped wide on the turn (at minimum most of the Jocks thought there was a bias as nearly all of them were hunting the 3 path on the turn for home). Nobody has ever claimed he was the next coming of Whirlaway. He finished third in a graded stake at Keeneland. Travel Vic came out to gloat because that is what he does. Why ....I am not sure?
He's a nice horse who hit the board for the 8th time in 9 tries (with 5 wins) in stakes company. Time to relax and enjoy a nice horse who has come back from a serious injury.
sorry I replied to my post...see above.
He'll have to take another step forward this Friday. The Phoenix will certainly be a tough test. However, he seems to be getting better. If you watch a replay of the Delta Jackpot you could make a good case that he could have or should have beaten Goldencents that day. Tough trip! I agree that he looks like he belongs in the conversation for the BC sprint! Let's hope he wins on Friday first!
I spoke with Kelly Breen after the Dave's Friend. At that time he indicated that the Phoenix at Keeneland was the next target, as long as BI came out of the race in good order. Bi"s 3/4 move in 12 and change last weekend indicates that all systems are go for Friday. Palace went to to Vosburg, so that takes one monster out of the Phoenix.
Glad you are back! Lets hope he wins the Phoenix and goes on to the BC. Hope the Barrel racing is going well!
Have people left this site? I heard something about this from Rafirox.
What happened to URR? She has been silent when her boy was at his best!
He was pressured for the entire race and still was able to finish. Kelly Breen said the Phoenix is his next target and if he runs well there, on to the Breeders Cup. He is back and better than ever.
from the one hole...let's hope he breaks like he has his last two starts, goes to the front, and improves his position!
