Thank you for the information update, Jbyrnes. One of the reasons I like this site is because the fans here are knowledgeable, fast at updating in circumstances like these, and considerate.
I'm heartbroken. I was hoping that there was something that could be done for him even though it didn't look good when he was pulled up in the backstretch.
Was the yielding turf the cause, do you think? I just wondered because NBC commentator Donna Brothers said that the turf was firming up in spots but still soft in others. (Did Skyring take a bad step in one of the softer spots?)
I send my sympathies to Wayne Lucas and the connections; and I wish Peace to you, Skyring, you were a beautiful runner. I enjoyed watching you.
He seems to be showing something by finishing on the board in his races so far - now I'd personally like to see how he does at classic distances to see if he'd shine like his pop!
(The Unbridled pedigree is always entertaining at classic distances, imo, especially when they come out as closers LOL)
your wish is granted, Jbyrnes 1! lol
I hope you made some cash from the race as well as getting the happy ending to the great story.
I put my pennies on Slumber as well. 15 more minutes and we'll see if you're right
Hmmm, sometimes life isn't very fair. Stephanie's Kitten would have won this race if not for the interference. I know it's the name of the game, but still, my heart goes out to the connections for the disappointment... :P
I thought Danish Dynaformer was going to take it (I bet $1 ATB on him), but Shaman Ghost had more dramatic ideas about the finish and decided to beat him to the finish.
Oh well, one dollar very well spent to watch a lovely race in Canada online! lol
Congratulations to Shaman G and his connections!
Now that song is stuck in my head. There is magic in the air today, so I think AP is going to do it. (I also think one of the Unbridled progeny is going to spoil it because they do that a lot. :P )
AP MUST win the TC - tired of waiting 3 decades.
I wish I was in Elmont as well. I got to see Belmont in the off season last year but I would dearly love to be there when they're running.
Good Luck, AP
2-6 are all Unbridled offspring. They have a tendency to spoil in the Belmont. But American Pharoah is one too, so maybe he'll spoil himself and actually win this TC crown! I'm hoping... one of the others are prone to pull a 'Birdstone'... I'm so conflicted! lol
Awwww, what happened Shook Up?! You didn't have a good time of it in The Acorn.
(I'm just wondering why she gave up so early - hope she didn't get injured. :/ )
