I am no fan of the owners. I'm not a big fan of the horse. I like him, just not a big fan. However, the horse didn't pick his owners.
Too bad Wise Dan got hurt. I think he would have won the Turf Mile again, and IMO, he would be the HOY again. I'd give HOY to Main Sequence or UnTapable. Best 3YO. Sorry, it's Bayern. 2-1 against Chrome. Chrome lost his last 3 races.
Wow. What people are missing is that VE was supposed to ride a winning race. He was coming out of the 2 hole. What was he doing in the FIVE PATH the entire race till he and Sky Kingdom dropped out and finished up the track? His actions speak for themselves. Deserves the suspension.
It was such a great race. Both horses ran such a great race, that I wish there were no loser. Both horses did a great job.
Yes. Named after the Victory in Europe Day
Great list. I'd drop Swale, Coastal, and Afleet Alex, and move Rags, Thunder Gulch. and Empire Maker up. Would put Rags in top 5
Paynter is an example of what the late, great Jim Valvano once said. "Never give up. Don't ever give up." Paynter is an inspiration for us all, and is living proof of the healing power of God.
The Woodward should be changed BACK to 1 1/4 miles like it used to be at one time. Anyway, the race should be awesome whomever wins. I am pulling for Paynter. I really don't think he's overmatched.
So I am not the only one who was drifting away from the sport that Rachel brought back. Thank you Rachel. LOVE YA
