I haven't seen anything about them going to the Alabama- only the test
Heard he's out of the Haskell?
Very interesting draw. Nyquist will now have to shoot out of there and will most likely be on the lead with gun runner pressing him. I just hope he doesn't burn himself out. It is not 10f though and maybe he will run this race like he ran the Florida derby. Hopefully he is in shape because this is one tough race to win! Gun runner and exaggerator will probably make him earn it like her never has before
I doubt it. Dortmund likes to gun for the lead as seen in the derby and last weekend. I don't think he will settle behind melatonin and his connections will want him to secure the lead
I am super excited they are pointing him to this race. It is really going to be a phenomenal race.
Yes but that is a big 'if' as she is six years old now. Mares will start to slow down eventually. And if Chrome runs like he did in Dubai he will also be hard to keep up with. I think they both have different running styles than Dortmund and melatonin. Dort to me I think needs to have the lead to run his best race. Or he won't settle and wastes energy. Same with melatonin. Nyquist and chrome and beholder all like to stalk but can also take the lead if needed. It will really come down to post position and the break
You are right. Even more amazing how songbird ran so well on it
Did not see that coming. Totally thought he'd go to the Jim dandy. Very confusing as Keith said he has not been training well and he can't figure out why yet let's send him again Nyquist and gun runner instead of the Jim dandy where I thought he had a great shot to win it
