I've been in a slump for a while now. I did not like the way he went out, and I did not like the lack of earlier challenges in the Belmont. Long awaited TC did not do it for me. Smarty would have won had he been allowed to control the pace
I mean beat ;o)
I'm still a Beholder fan. Still sour about her not being able to face AP in the BCC last year
We could post differences all day I'm sure because my point was not that he is Lava Man...not CA bred, wasn't claimed, etc. He is the only one with a chance at the sweep, and I do acknowledge the PC is going to be the toughest. LM was the first to do it, and he had actually accomplished more prior to his SA Handicap win that year than Melatonin prior to this year. LM then went on to dominate Cali racing for a few years. Will Melatonin be that new dominator was more of what I'm curious. They said LM couldn't handle the tougher competition, but he proved them wrong.
Is this guy the second coming of Lava Man? He came from nowhere and has now captured 2 of the 3 biggest Classics in Cali. I may be rooting for him in the Pacific Classic where he may be completely overlooked.
Breeders Cup...jocks complaining about kickback
The Gold Cup has lost its stature. That's for sure
This time of year just hasn't been the same since HP shut down
Kobe's Back/Lord Nelson/Clever Royal/Subtle Indian
I like Hard Aces to repeat as well. Hard Aces/Melatonin/Second Summer/Hoppertunity
