Y'guys are funny. Enough entertainment for the day, though. G'night all.
@goblin: SURE IS; Flashback's a nice colt but the impact is nothing like, say, Eskendereya
@dipak1: you've gotta be kiddin'!!!
@dipak1: surprisingly 44 points is almost assured to get you in. I estimate that Java's War will qualify even with no more points (22 currently)
And I thought this forum was about horses, not people. The truth is: Verrazano scored an impressive win and Normandy Invasion ran a very nice second.
Prior to the Wood, he had never been asked to run, winning impressively while cruising. In the Wood, although asked, he's still never felt the whip (outside of the shoulder tap). When interviewed Johnny V. said he has no idea how he'll respond if he ever DOES need to go to the whip.
@Mary Z - every comment you make is right on
Goldencents put him away convincingly in mid-stretch; Flashback seemed to "gain" late as Krigger eased up the last several strides knowing he had the race won. Goldencents beat Flashback soundly in this race.
Just watched the head-on, then the pan, and the head-on again: no, I don't agree. Verrazano drifted mildly a couple times and although Vyjack adjusted for that, he was never impeded and seemed to flatten out of his own volition late
@fivewide: REALLY? Watch the race, PLEASE (especially the head-on view). Mena & Uncaptured were doing all they could just to not go through the rail - quite an extraordinary performance.
