Watched the replay again of this unbelievable filly. Despite the wide post and wide trip, she still won and tied the race record. Is she already Japan's best runner?
An interesting prep for the Ogden Phipps, which is shaping up as this summer's version of the Race of the Year if the Princess and Hatches both enter. You have to respect the willingness of Beholder's connections to go to New York. Brings back memories of Blind Luck who has not afraid to travel to face the best.
I'm counting on EC fans to overbet on Cairo and the Wood winner. Keep up the hype!
Cursed by the last minute switch. Been there , done that.
Really bummed after her racing career being cut short. Happy trails to the white princess!!
Since yesterday's favorites in Arkansas and Lexington did not win, it looks like CC should be the favorite for the Derby. But the pedigree and anti-Cali bettors will still bet against him. So yes, I can see him going off as high as 4-1. If he does, I'll be emptying my TVG account on him.
How can you knock a horse who runs almost exclusively in Grade 1 races and doesn't duck the Breeders Cup?? Other than swapping out the G2 Fourstardave with another Grade 1 during the summer, I wouldn't change his schedule leading up to his Breeders Cup defense.
The JRA site has said that the connections for this filly are targeting the Arc, where fillies receive a significant weight break. After watching her stretch run in the Oka Sho,they must be very confident about going to the Arc.
Was more impressed with this horse after watching the race replay this morning. He was really striding out at the end and seemed to have more in the tank. Will include him in my exotics but hope he gets clear sailing in the large Derby field.
I really hope that Andy Beyer does not curse this horse and pick him for the Derby.
