When Princess of Sylmar won the Ky Oaks, she was not on the outside, she was in Post Position# 6 in a field of eleven. Should be a great race. Looking for a dramatic stretch run in the Personal Ensign.
Interesting point on the outside post draw. Coincidental, and nothing more, but she also has lost all three times that she was on the outside. Still like her, since she was my long shot play in last year's Ky Oaks. Let it ride.
Pretty nice, that now she possesses two of the best times(at different distances and on both turf tracks) @ Saratoga. Not too often you find one that holds multiple best times at one race track, much less Saratoga. William Mott has a new kid in town.
The favorite is traveling the major portion of 3,000 miles; hasn't won in 6 months; has been no closer than 4 1/4 lengths from the winner during that time. For Goodness Sake, I think I'll look elsewhere.
Although a "Big" fan of Chad Brown's, I wasn't impressed with his tutoring of Normandy Invasion, and his latest dirt escapade with Cousin Stephen. But, when it comes to turf, he is the King.
I looked at past winners of the Haskell, and noticed that only one horse has went on to win the BC Classic(Skip Away). Since they have dubbed this race as a 'Win And You're In' race, I don't seem to understand the reasoning. Seems that horses that win this race are pretty close to finality. This race seems to be a stepping stone to nowhere. So, if the case seems to be this, then, good bye, Bayern.
Zenyatta's record for 10F: 1-for-2. Though she is a closer, you would think that invincibility would be hers' when the distance was 10F.
Thanks, rafi. Good to see you got on this one also. You're having a good year. Keep up the good work!!!!
Which just goes to show you, that every once in a while, a blind squirrel finds an acorn. And, where are those Calvin Borel haters???? Not at the Cashier's window, that's for sure.
Like your picks, Ace. The one that strikes my fancy would be Moonshine Mullin. After starting his career 3-for-22, he's won 5 of his last 9, including four in a row. His best BRISNET speed rating is going this distance, when he ran runner-up to Stay Thirsty in the Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga two years ago, so, his front-running style might be able to stretch out to this distance. Anyhow, 10-1 is pretty nice for a horse that's won four in a row. Good luck to you.
