Got it! I stand corrected and have made the correction. Thanks!
I didn't state that only two geldings had won, just pointed out that prior to Funny Cide, Clyde Van Dusen was the previous one. Hence, two geldings in the past 86 years. Thanks for pointing out the others though.
Winner Winner... you are correct sir! Somehow that one slipped by me. Have a good Derby!
Thanks for the extra proof reading! I guess I should have done that a THIRD time?! Dyslexia strikes again! Corrections have been made.
So Mary, NOW you know who's Cupid?! I recall you have cake and champagne for me (re: your comments on "GQ Derby Double Dozen" post dated Feb. 24th).
I like Devil's Food w/ butter cream icing. :)
Couldn't Favre or MJ live nicely off their endorsements? Sure. But that didn't make them happy... call it their "competitive spirit" or not knowing when to say when or inflated ego?!
Nope. No bone to pick. I'm just a Doubting Thomas type of person who always wonders what someone's REAL reason is to give up "the good life" (aka retirement). In Dickinson's case, it may simply be because he misses working w/ horses AND the challenge. If not, then just offering my Food for Thought.
Mar. 5, '16 @ Aqu Shagaf wins 1 1/16m Gotham in 1:45.90
Mar. 6 ,'16 @ Aqu Matt King Coal wins 1 1/16m Alw N1X in 1:44.92
So does this means Matt King Coal would have won Gotham by 5 lengths?!
Ignore Rally Cry at your own risk. Sunny Ridge continues to add lbs. while all others in here get weight break... I cannot see him winning. Interesting that Johnny V. is listed on Mo Power (his only mount) when he is named on half dozen or more @ GP on Saturday, at least two in graded stakes. So if he shows up at The Big A on Saturday, then maybe Mo Power is the "now" horse?! Regardless, there won't be any 7-5 PT favorites in here... great betting race!
Interesting that Johnny V. is listed on Mo Power for TAP, but I doubt he'll make the trip north just to ride this one, since he's also listed on a half dozen or more at GP on Saturday.
Of Shagaf and Rally Cry, the latter was the better horse in their last race in spite the result... Adventist could take that big step forward and I agree with BeastBob, "... Sunny Ridge will not win."... having to carry 7 lbs. more than his competitors (because of his win in the Withers) will do him in.
