Gemologist should run in the Gr. 2 Jim Dandy For many reasons if his connections choose to run him in the Haskell Gemologist would have to face a a tough field for a Gr. 1 Victory, another reason he should run in the Jim Dandy is he is already at saratoga and worked great for his last two breezes at Saratoga on the 16th he trained with a breeze running 5 furlongs in 1:00.88 and his rank was 1/25 then breezing on the dirt again but not training this time on the 22nd his time was 58.40 ranking 1st again out of 43 horses, this just makes me think he has done everything right so far leading up to the Jim Dandy I think it would be a huge mistake far the connections to ship him to monmouth for the Haskell when he has trained, Breezed, and already is located their plus he should run the Jim Dandy get that Gr.2 Victory let Todd and the connections go over what it took out of him if he is healthy breeze him 1 or 2 more times run the Tavers go for the Gr. 1 victory ship him down to Belmont work on that surface prep for the Jockey Club Gold Cup if he is healthy and does good go from there on to the Breeders Cup. If Gemologist runs in the Haskell he really has had no prep race to see how he has run for a Gr. 1 victory and he has to run against a much tougher field to get that Gr. 1 victory.The plus side is it gives him more time for the Jockey Club Gold Cup, but he should run in the Jim Dandy.
i dont think flores is the right jockey for american lion i think rosario or nakatani is the fit for him plus horses dont like the hot weather they like the cold they tried him on the turf and did not do to well they should try him on the nyra circuit for a few races plus they would have a better shot with him winning on the turf down there cause the turf is much softer than the cali tracks turf after talking to eoin harty he did not really like the hard turf surface and needs a change
ice box is training for this race and is doing well
