Most likely to stand by his word. But to say honor just isn't good enough based on one race is absurd. Def not jumping off him like so many others are but instead will just look forward to how he came out of this and then onto his next race.
I'm sorry but the comments about 'not being good enough' are just ridiculous. Clearly this horse needed a small back into the groove of things type race otherwise Shug wouldn't have put him in it. He knows a lot more than any of us do people. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I truly believe HC runs best as a deep closer, and getting hussled up there onto a slower pace is not his game. He was able to overcome it in the Remsen but not here today after such a long layoff. We also have no idea what type of horse the winner is. Shug will need to tighten HC up to either get him ready for the wood or something else after if he doesn't feel he is back up to par. The bottom line is Shug will not have this horse in the Derby starting gate if he doesn't feel he is ready for it. Shug says It about every potential derby horse he has and out of all trainers I think he is mis l
Buzz I can't seem to find either
Wow no idea why I said lookinatlucky. Totally meant itsmyluckyday haha
Don't forget about Hear the ghost and lookinatlucky. I think these two are talented and just need to get back into the swing of things. Lucky faded badly but give him a chance to come back
Nice win for Malice, I was very impressed how he fought back. Def not his signature style but just like honor code did in the remsen, you gotta do what you have to do to win! Surprised Rafi hasn't come on yet- this is his boy. Wonder where they are pointing him next, it will be interesting to see if he runs with MMM, WTC and The Dude
Ran a nice race. This horse runs solid every time out. Extremely consistent just wasn't the best today. It's fun watching these three take turns beating each other and will make for an interesting rest of the year if they don't all start avoiding each other. I wonder if Dude will come back to Charles Town and if either of the other two will go as well. I would be so excited because it's 20 minutes from my house!
Wow didn't think he'd get a 116. Anyone know where I can find bob baffert's post race interview? Btw saw the gallop out and was impressed. The dude looked like he wanted to run all day even after those fractions. Wtc looked exhausted past the finish line- anyone know if he ended up running with or without lasix? Also did Gary say what happened with MMM? That wasn't his best effort what so ever. But then again he at times can be inconsistent
So proud of the dude. I did get a little nervous when I was hear the ghost up near him but the dude put everyone away today. Threw down 22 and change and 45 and change, hit that high cruising speed and no one was going to catch him after that. Even WTC who started to close the gap but then Dude kicked in another gear and started to pull away right before the finish line. I really hope he continues to run like this the rest of the year and can finally get that classic win. I love my man game on dude!
I noticed! So proud of how he ran today
