Dortmund can't run with happy early. Same as with his race against Chrome. He no longer has that explosive speed,for whatever the reason.
Tough race to enter because of the venue. There is no guarantee as to what type of track they will be running on. A couple of years back when Goldencents won. It was a cement highway. Add to it a very quick run into the first turn. If a horse draws wide and outside of post 7. Unless they have big time speed to get position,their fates are sealed. With a horse like Runhappy in the race. He will scare off candidates from trying to run with him early. So a pace does not look that probable.
Time and Motion today proved that she is the top 3yo Turf Filly in America. Will only get stronger and better next year,as she goes longer. I know JJ loved this filly from the beginning. She sure has not let him down. J.R. fits her like a glove.
If I had my druthers,i go to Green pastures. Be nice to see him beat more famous little sis at the wire
Not a problem there. Keep an eye out for Vyjacks and Tepins little brother Taneko. He is by Gio Ponti and is in D'amatos barn. He should be making his debut in the next 2 to 4 weeks,assuming everything stays on plan. He is a big 3yo,similar in looks to Vyjack.
Thanks Mary. Today Vyjack put it all together. He got the trip we thought he would,and an amazing ride by Pratt. On to the Breeders Cup with a sharp and fresh Race Horse.
Bullets not needed anymore. Should be good this week.
Is Dortmund a better Horse than Chrome? Not in this lifetime he is not. But come Saturday,he will have his best chance to beat Chrome. I say this because i use intent as the barometer. No way will Chrome be pushed or has even been trained to lay it all on the line. He has bigger fish to fry. For Dortmund this is his BREEDERS CUP. He must show he belongs. He will lay it all out.
Ross you cant be serious,wait for a win. Forget those other races because he won them. Make no mistake that the best race Ex ran to date was in the Derby. He ran a huge 2nd to a horse who was the dominant 3yo at the time. If that race did not convince you he can run on a fast track. I doubt anything will.
Raill looked pretty good in the 1rst. SEND MOTT,SEND HER TO THE TOP. Let them chase you.
