Finally! My girl gets back to the races! I fell in love with Rose To Gold at Keeneland in the 2012 season. Even though she didn't run well, she was beautiful! I've been following her ever since. I'm glad she's back, but sad that she will be retired soon.
Most of these so called Derby horses ran slow. Every year we hear how this horse or that horse won't win because of whatever reason, but they perform above and beyond.I'll be laughing in a month when some of the Nations experts come out with reasons why they had the horse, only days after saying that thaat same horse would not win...Its humorous
If you know anything about this years Derby crop, there hasn't been much to get excited about. Shanghai Bobby doesn't have the pedigree nor the running style to be there in the Derby. He's Had Enough looks like he's had enough, Vyjack??? Not likely. Verrazano runs 22.4 - 45.2 and then pulls away from the field and wins by 15 1/4? I loved his Maiden win, this one puts him at the top of my Derby list. If you weren't impressed you were either blind or do not know what kind of horse you are seeing.
Pay attention to trainer stats specifically at Del Mar also. There are a few angles that I use every year and they are especially valuable during the first week of the meet. Cant wait until this afternoon!
I've been to Del Mar 2 consecutive years from the East Coast and it is, by far the best track in America! We've been to Woodbine, Keeneland, Tampa and a ton of others but I will always go to Del Mar as my 1st choice
