Watching the TB Derby unfold I thought, "Where's all the early speed?!" Great ride BUT Ring Weekend is no one hit wonder and DOES NOT have to be on the lead. Decision to geld him (during layoff) appears to have been a BRILLIANT on by Motion, based on the 3 races he's put in since.
Ya gotta respect a man who sticks to his guns (re: Strong Mandate) v. others who release a Captian Obvious-type of "Derby Dozen" EVERY WEEK.
Post updated with SAN FELIPE Satakes Post Positions!!!
You have a short wait... he'll run on Saturday in the San Felipe Stakes.
Entries are drawn on Wednesday. For the probables, see the article below "Is Schoolofhardrocks..."
I think it was appropriate that a great claim (Ribo Bobo) won a race named for another great claim (Caixa Eletronica).
Mark, if we're talking about "WHO WILL WIN the Derby", I'll assume you don't care that it's been 131 years since the Derby winner was unraced as a 2-yr-old?
Well said LAZ. Let's just hope we get to see this "Chip off the old Rock" run on Saturday.
Impressed w/ the winner. I had my doubts thinking that the added 5 lbs. would do him in. I was wrrr, wrrrr, wrrrong.
BTW - Bond Holder will miss the Tampa Bay Derby AND a few more weeks of training per Doug O'Neill.
