This was probably one of the top 3 yo crops I have seen in a long time. They all had so much potential and now they're all retiring with injuries. Best potential in an entire crop, but very unsound. This is a huge blow to horse racing. It strikes a personal note for me with Hansen. He was my favorite
Does anyone know who she is in foal to or if she is at all?
Sorry, I hit enter accidentally. But I keep up on all the prep races and pick my favorites and if I can't pick one logically, I got for looks. That's what made Hansen catch my eye. Tapit foals are amazing, I looked into his progeny and he is right up there with my favorite sires. But in the juvenile and juvenile fillies I called 1-2-3 in both. I agree I picked Hansen too for the derby even though I knew he wasn't going to get it, I can't just ditch my sentimental favorite. It even got so bad where I will paint my nails the silks of my top 5 picks for the derby. My left hand is for the derby and my right is for the oaks. I collect newspapers after each of the races and check about 5 different newspapers so I can have 5 different versions of the story. My friends don't understand it, but they are always right there beside me laughing hysterically at me when my horse hits the stretch in front, I scream so much at my horse that I am hoarse after derby day. After I'll have another won the Preakness I cried because there was a chance for the TC. And come Saturday I know I will cry either way. Let's just hope he wins. Godspeed IHA.
I feel the same exact way as you. I am just like you, being only 16 I have yet to witness a triple crown. Each year I have a party for each of the jewels with my friends. I am just like you, I watch al
I think they should give him at least one more year of racing. they should at least let him retire after a good race. I know I'm gonna miss this guy tearing up the track!
wow, she already beat the boys. this filly has potential!
very amazing win. I knew he had it at the turn! I was rooting for him!
Frankel is a beast. He easily beat CC with an amazing turn of foot. You don't often see that in a 3yo. So there wasn't much traffic, that's what happens when you get to the lead first. And only 3 other horses were entered, but one of them was CC who beat Goldikova, and he didn't even pose a threat to Frankel. JMO.
Does anyone know what Alsab's silks look like? I'm working on a project and want to put a picture of his silks, however I can't find them anywhere. It's hard to tell from the video since its so grainy, but they look white to me. If anyone knows what they look like or where I could find a picture of them could you please let me know. Thanks!
mine that bird actually had a bigger winning margin than barbaro. he won by 6 3/4 and barbaro won by 6 1/2. If anything, i would say MTB win was more impressive coming from way off the pace.I do give barbaro credit for the huge layoff. But I liked Barbaro better than MTB, and is in my top 5 emotionally
