Say Shug, Don't let them bother you with nonsense! Instead be happy that No one can get knocked into Orb, the way that Brother Derrick did to Barbaro!Best of Luck, Go Win # 6 in a ROW!
Flashy has a bitter taste in her mouth after the loss at OP to Rose of Gold. I hope for a Mott Exacta here!
Easy choice, or is it easier said than done? Should a match race come about between these two fantastic Turf Runners, my money WILL be on Point Of Entry! Especially should a match race between the two be RUN in NEW YORK!
The BEST of LUCK to Team MOTT, we have all read over time of my support for my first racing boss.I wish himand his team nothing but the Best of Luck ;in what is going to be possibly the toughest 3yro. filly race of the year. With Close Hatches,in the Kentucky Oaks!
WAR Emblem in 2002 won both the Illinois Derby and the Kentucky Derby. Now CDI wants to exclude the Illinois Derby from the point system to qualify for the Kentucky Derby? Where is the sense in this? I stand by my other comments concerning CDI Stupidity!
Dragon Along ran in the 1970's around 1974-1977. The Sweetnorthersaint entry is who I was refering to concerning 2006 running of The Kentucky Derby.
to our fellow blogger who doesn't think that the Louisiana Derby has ever produced a Kentucky Derby Winner. The answer that your seeking is, look up War Emblem of recent note and of course there is the oft forgotten Black Gold back in the early 1900's, possibly around 1920's. As for the illinois Derby , there have been numerous entries into the Kentucky Derby that have run in the Illinois Derby. IE Dragon Along , that 2006 entry that was the post time favorite ,that then came back to run second in the Preekness that year. This is all a farce on the Churchill Downs management part. go back to this years Kentucy Oaks, the beans were spilt in the winner circle presentation. Something to the effect , That everyone present there was a Kentuckian. Read between thier lines. They have failed to properly manage Calder, Arlington Park, the Fairgrounds, have all gone down hill since CDI overtook them/ took over management of them.. The only thing that they have left to quote Rhett Butler as he talked about the South in GWTW is Arrogance and Ignorance! Today in CDI's Arrogance and Ignorance they have instituted this Assanine Point system of thiers,with reguard to an International Event and an American Tradition, The Kentucky Derby!
Yes! Illinois did get the big hard one from Eggsucking CDI, but that's nothing new as hard core horsemen will tell you CDI front side management isn't worth a shit!
This is going to be different without The Bodemiester, to set the early fractions,and set the table for IHA,It's Union Rags playground, but can a Dixie Union get the distance? Watchout for Street Life and Optimizer as well as My Adonis all 3 are well meant for this distance. I look forward to seeing this , the weather gods are calling for FAST and 80 degrees of temp.
Yeah! He was awsome, and those were different times,back then. Just as a reminder, the Stepping stone run only 10 days before the Derby set up Cannonade to win the 100th running. Trainer the Great Woody Stephens,the jockey the talented Angel Cordero!
