No shock that Commanding Curve was SCRATCHED from Friday's feature ($100k Curlin Stakes), BUT Cousin Stephen will be SCRATCHED from Jim Dandy as he'll run in the Curlin on Friday.
Even though I'm at The Spa for opening weekend, I'm truly jealous because of 1) such an awesome road trip and 2) you get to extend your slight lead on me in "Tracks Visited". Enjoy every minute of it... safe travels!
@hrn-89c9d677ad85ffc6e703bfd13bc5471e:disqus I never said we were staying in downtown Albany. On Friday night I'll post ACTUAL TRAVEL TIME. Just Googled it... from hotel to The Spa is 35 minutes... IF you drive the speed limit for the 22 miles on I-87. If we do (drive speed limit) we'll get run off the run.
Let's split the difference and call it 30 minutes. Still beats $400/night in Saratoga Springs.
Ok, so I stretched the truth. Google maps shows 5 hours 28 minutes when taking I-83 to I-87. Plus, Chris and I have A LOT to talk about, so it will seem like just a couple hours! Giddy-Up!
Yep... actually Friday, Saturday & Sunday!!! I'll txt you early in the day.
I'm glad there is no racing in MD from after Belmont Day until last weekend in August so this "Maryland's Own GQ" can enjoy this jewel of a race track.
Correction on below date... should be June 29th, not 26th.
Just watch Stanford break his maiden in debut @ Mth R9 (June 26th)... WOW! The middle move was quite impressive, passing half of the field on the turn, winning geared down.
Timely advice, if you know what I mean?!
I cannot confirm nor deny the rumor. Will only say the form looked good, but would have to shed about 65 lbs. to make weight.
