Half the horses hype is NOT driven by the derby connections. He is wrongly over hyped, point being made.
Is there any one who can honestly look me in the seyes (proverbially speaking) and tell me that at least HALF of this colts hype is driven by his previous years derby winning connections? If he were trained by ANY other trainer this year, he would not be recieveing half the accolades he is getting. Yes he comes from first to last - and it appears he is amazing - but if shug were not his trainer he would be written off as just another horse that might be a prospect not the "OMG CHOSEN ONE!!!!" . I think it is ridiculous, take a good look at the record of the KD winning connections 'golden' horses in the past- even just the last two. Know more: Flop. Went the day ll : Injured, but still no match IHA... It's a joke. Is he talented? sure. Should he be at the top of everyones 'derby list' (whilch should be Based on preformance but rarely ever are) ... no.

How exactly did Beholder win over more heaets? She didnt run for half the year, and most people I know dont get uber excited over random work out postings... In fact often the first thing people I know though of her was that she won the award LAST year, I cant think of a big race this year that would have grabbed a bunch of fans(before the BC) Princess on the other hand
yes, and notice none of them ended up in the ballot, because they didnt run a championship schedule. CH gets a pass for being sick for most of the summer. Princess is far better than 'good I guess'
her ran fresh against horses that were not, and that traveled.
the torrey pines.
she was a fresh horse, tHat held all the advantages, on her home track. Not suprising. She had one goal the entire year and that was the BC , bravo for her connections knowing how to play the system. Proof being that while all the other horses had a busy summer running in G1 races competitivly and consistantly Beholder ran in that one spectacular race that all the high caliber horses aim for the...
