Don't get too upset over it now. Reddam said that he might enter both Know More and He's Had Enough in the Juvenile dirt due to the fact there are only 10 entrants in the race. I do agree with with that racing Know More on the turf might not be the best choice, and personally, I think it would be a step backwards for the horse. Who knows. I think he will end up running on the dirt anyways, even if he is entered to run on the turf.
Looks like Know More won't get a mount switch until after the BC Juvenile. But I agree, I think Mario would suit Know More's running style. I am suprised that they have stuck with Gomez.
*Power Broker had trained on the dirt previously, not run. My bad.
I would still give Know More a chance. Winning a graded stakes the first time out and placing 2nd in two grade 1 races is nothing to sneeze at. I think as long as he continues to train on the dirt, he will get better. Even Leandro Mora said that previously before the Frontrunner, Know More had not trained or raced on the dirt (while Power Broker had run on the dirt for some time). But like it was mentioned in the article, the juvenile is anyones game at this point in time.
well, I guess not a tab, but it's a small chart on the bottom of the page...
Don't know where to put this, but THANK YOU HRN staff for putting a "Road to the KY Derby" chart/tab on the home page! Now we can keep track of which colts have points and who is in the lead.
And, a lot of the stamina in his pedigree has started to fade out. I like the Slew/A.P Indy part, but it's on the sire side (and I still believe that the dam is more influential when it comes to stamina), and it's is overweighed by the other sprinters in his pedigree.
What do people consider a pedigree for "stamina" to be nowadays? 1 1/4 miles? Sure, it could get him thorugh the Derby and Preakness, but I don't see anywhere in his pedigree that tells me that he could go 1 1/2 miles.
