Calculator is also trying to be the first direct sire line descendent from the Godolphin Arabian to win the Kentucky Derby since War Admiral. Godolphin Arabian descendants are historically better at longer distances than the 2000m (having more wins in the Belmont Stakes then in the Derby or Preakness). History could be made the first Saturday in May and break the chokehold that the Darley Arabian descendants have had on the Run for the Roses.
Yes, it is early. If history is any teller, he will probably not even make the field. But, it would be great to see a horse from this sire line run in the race, especially one that isn't from Tiznow, the main current surviving branch of the line. His Sham performance was amazing! He looked like he had a lot left. Rock Shandy (runner-up) was very impressive as well. He was gaining ground within the last furlong. He could be another to watch, especially as he moves up in distance. Very excited for the coming months (as always)!
Calculator has a chance to be the first winner of the Kentucky Derby from the Godolphin Arabian sire line since 1937 with War Admiral. Watch this horse as the Derby draws closer.
Just watched what could have been one of the best performances by a 2yo in a long time. His huge win in the Rockville Center was amazing! Yes it was a weak field, but it was a well bred field. Sure to be someone to watch.
Welcome to HRN! My family actually does t-shirts for King of Prussia Stables so we got to meet one of the co-owners of Princess of Sylmar. I met him a few weeks after her Oaks win and now she is one of my favorites! Hopefully she can capture another Beldame this year!
Sad that Night of Thunder probably won't be running in the Epsom Derby... the UK will have to wait another year to end their 44 year TC drought.
Intense Holiday has a Condylar Fracture, will not run in Belmont Stakes, surgery tomorrow.
Good mix of picks... Still sticking with my pick... Medal Count, followed by Commanding Curve, California Chrome, and Candy Boy to round out my super.
Kentucky Derby 2013 Stat Sheets are now available at horseracingstation.wordpress.com Good Luck!!!
Nice job! I've been saying that distaff lines are just as important as sire lines for awhile now and this really helps. Love pedigree research... really tells you the long and illustrious history of the sport of kings. Great Job!! Definitely will be using this info this week!!
