Didn't seem to be fully cranked for today's race. Still impressed with her heart to get it done. Impressive mare.
Surprised Baffert didn't take her to the La Troienne, but not complaining about her being entered in the Adoration as it is a pleasure to see her race in person. She'll liven up the post-Derby Sunday.
Stellar, extremely classy performance in the Apple Blossom. Made absolutely no difference the leader got an easy lead on her home track. If she looked this good today first start back, she has a huge year ahead of her. Can't wait to see it unfold.
Also wasn't a bad 2nd, to another Marathon specialist, in the Marathon at the last Breeders' Cup going 1 3/4 miles.
Happy to see him win the Tokyo City Cup today! Hard knocker. He's not a bad stayer really. Too bad there aren't too many "marathon" options for him.
Goldikova was the first to win 3 BC races but don't forget Beholder also won 3 BC races, 2 Distaffs ('13 & '16) and the '12 Juvenile Fillies.
Nice honest horse. Nice win in the Big 'Cap. Really wasn't sure he would get there, looked a bit uncomfortable being hemmed in but he seems to be a stayer, he really turned loose in that 10th furlong.
I think the Frontrunner should be renamed after him. He ran there and that race is what sealed up his 2yo Eclipse.
Nice mare, looks better and better with each passing race.
Looking forward to seeing her step up and go for a G1 in the Santa Margarita next month.
