He's a nice horse.
I don't think he's got enough brilliance to run down horses that get away from him and to navigate in such a large field.
I think the quality of the Florida Derby was suspect.
I think he will get the distance easily, but he has been winning a lot of races his own way and running horses down on heart. I don't expect that to work in the Kentucky Derby.
Betting wise, I want to see posts, but he's the kind of horse that you can say will win or be off the board. Would need some serious closing power to beat him for the win spot. Do you believe in Destin?
I know, and she has too much stamina to match her to it again. TrueNicks ratings aren't worth much
I wish New York had some quality, but even Easy Goer couldn't do it :(
If this horse is going to pull any of them off, it'll be this weekend.
So are we excited we get Joel or disappointed we miss Irad?
I agree 100%
Wish they had gone for something with a bit more speed. Uncle Mo is on fire this year and several of his graded horses have been on the Mr. Prospector cross (9% stakes winners and they're only rising 3yos... jesus!)
Destin, Mor Spirit, Gun Runner
Alright, it's that time of year. Your top three Derby horses in order are?
I don't think so at all. It's not as if the horse will learn to take to the track... the only advantage would be for him to get used to the surroundings, but in his case he will never get any rest with all the bothering he will be subject to from reporters. Reddam and company are being very smart by keeping him at Keeneland where it is much quieter, and after the Juvenile and Florida Derby he should have had as much exposure as any rising 3yo can...
