So this article makes it sound like they are holding intoo a very slim hope to still Make the Kentucky oaks...
Not even excited for either race now
Farrell crushed val
He said she got injured in the race. This must have been a recent injury- as she worked a bullet the other day
It's killing me. My top two 3yos :*( I'm not even excited for the oaks or derby now
Wow. This is soul crushing
If Bella continues to develop no reason we won't see her in the Haskell. They wanted to do that with songbird last year but she got sick. Bella is big enough to run with the colts
She does look really good. But I do think Abel Tasman should impress in the oaks. Farrell is also a nice looking filly. Won't be a walkover but I still think Bella wins.
Distaff remains to be seen. Holldendorfer said if he can keep them apart all year he wants to. My guess is if arrogate doesn't make the classic for whatever reason- we will see songbird there and bella in the distaff. If arrogate goes to classic and hollendorfer is forced to put them both in the distaff- my guess is smith chooses the more seasoned and less green songbird at this moment in time. By years end? It all depends on Bella and her development. She is bigger and stronger than songbird- so if she continues to get better she may just have better ability of the two
That's what everyone said last year too
He should go met mile, Whitney, Woodward.
