I loved American Freedom in the Haskell,and came up short 1 Horse. I am not one of those petty Baffert bashers. I think the man is excellent at what he does. That being said, i hope that bothe his Horses get bet off the Board. Unless Arrogate does a complete about face, and freaks out. He will almost need a ticket to get into this event. American Freedom is a top and very fast Race Horse. My problem with him is that Baffert history is way against him. Like Bayern and American Pharoah before him. Baffert shipped him back to the Wrong Coast after the race. If it did not work with 2 horses i consider superior to A.F. ,i will not try and be convinced by betting on him. Another reason is Bejarano up. The knock on him in the past is that he is not a Big Race Rider. After watching him in the Pacific Classic and the Haskell. He has done absolutely nothing to dispel those rumors. My pick in case you care...... GOVERNOR MALIBU
When i dug in to handicap Saturdays Travers,it never dawned on me that i would land on this guy. I loved him in the Jim Dandy, and came up a bit short. The logical horse for me is Exagerrator. I still feel that he is the best of this crop. He will be my second choice in the Travers.The Guv has put in 3 very strong speed figures. The Belmont may not show it,but after adjusting for the multiple trouble stops. He did run a big race. He has the tactical speed and running style,to sit off about 5 to 7 lengths off of a pace,that figures to be contentious. Because of the running style with many of the horses,i expect this to be a strung out field. This should play nice with the Gov. May not get the wide trip or traffic jam,when Joel puts him in the game.
Thks,will invest a few sheckles,courtesy of Time and Motion. Vyjack in Stake Sat. against Masochism. Been working lights out. Am b psyched to see how he runs for Danato. Flavian loves him
Nathan are you watching Hard Knocks. Can actually say that this might be the worst of the worst. Austin trying oh so hard to be a media star. Looks like when they show coaching staff. Who curses more must bring extra pay.
If you ever put them on the tracktogether,she is not good enough to muck his stall. His loses are Extremely quality losses. Her wins are against questionable competition. In her 10 races she has run in. She may of faced 5 top fillies,if you totaled the competition
These polls are meaningless and Popularity Contests. The top 3 are No Brainers. But how does a horse that wins the Santa Anita Derby,then runs 2nd in the Derby to a horse who at the time was undefeated. Then ho goes on to win the Preakness. In the Belmont Stakes he was a tired horse,who probably never run. Then he wins the Haskell beating a small but quality field. How is he not 4th. Songbird is an extremely talented filly who is undefeated. That pales to the accomplisments of Exterminator. As far as Flintstone goes,he is truly a superior turf horse. But he is here on reputation. He ran and won 2 races
Like i said...POPULARITY CONTESTS
Was like taking candy from a baby. Should of gone by ger in last. But today was very good
At Del Mar in the 7th. Boots hint was. If you pick the winner. You will be doing the Jig. Need any more hints.
All in with time and motion today
Yup, you nailed it. Went 6F in 1.10 this week
