In watching todays Remsen and recent 2 year old Stakes Races. My opinion of this crop to date , has not changed. In looking at the horses based on Speed figures, this remains a very very slow bunch of 2 year olds. If i try and compare speed figures from previous crops, todays class is only worthy of Allowance Race figures. That being said,and it looks as though 2016 just may be the year. The year that not running as a 2 yr old JINX , will finally be broken. I have faith that there has to be fast horses that have not made their debuts yet. If there are not, and none pop up. Then the best we will be able to say,is that a horse had to win the Derby.
As i predicted after the Maiden Win at first asking . Marking has been entered in the Cigar Mile . I would be absolutely shocked if he does not show up with a monster effort. He will be getting 13 lbs from the 2 favorites . That translates into roughly 2.5 lengths. By drawing the rail , Ortiz should be able to negotiate a very favorable trip. Nathan i do not know who is making my taste buds stand up and cheer more. The Turkey or Marking. Other than Vyjack, rarely have i awaited a horses race like this one.
If you are looking for not only a price in the Clark,but a serious contender. Look no further than this guy. Went into his last race working lights out. Never really ran to the works. After looking at the replay, he never got comfortable with the track that day. From sitting a perfect trip 3rd on the rail,he kept taking to the outside. Seemed as though the jock sensed it,and tried to find a part of the track he would like. So far in his career, the CD strip has been to his liking. Nathan,do not pass him up. Also on the wrong coast,Recepta will be making her appearance. Should be very formidable.
I know that Kiaran does not know me from a Hole in the Wall. But i will e generous and give him some unsolicited advise. If you feel that this guy is a viable Derby contender,and i am sure you do. Whatever you wind up doing, and wherever you are planning to send him. If those plans do not include staying in New York and getting him ready, by all means change your itinerary. Yes , my critics will tell you to head for the Sunshine and warmth of Florida. But just review history over the past 3 years. You have had your share of top 3 year olds pointing to the Derby. Many of them listed at the top of almost everyones top 10 lists. You left the confines of New York to head South. Where did that get you.Absolutely nowhere to be found. Frosted last year,who turned out to be your best. He only woke up,when you brought him home. Look how badyou ran in the Breeders Cup races. So put on your earphones and play a bit of Billy Joel. Get in that New York frame of mind. Moyhamen looks as though he has a future,don't blow it by doing what others think is the right thing to do.
I said it then,and i will say it again. Khozan was the only 3yo with the natural talent to breathe the same air as American Pharoah. Others at their best could compete with these 2. But the effort that they put forth,just may put them out for a while. Ask Dale Romans and Keen Ice the question. 2 months later, Ice could not show up.
Fans are always on the lookout for hot 2 year old prospects. Put Taniko near the top of your lists. He is by new and exciting sire, Gio Ponti . His mom is Life Happened, in her very brief career as a broodmare she has been very succesful. L.H. has already dropped 2 Millionaires, in Vyjack and Tepin . Taniko is a big powerfulfully built animal, in the mode of big brother Vyjack. I have not failed you in the past,when i alert you about a horse. Do not miss the boat on Taniko.
What on Earth does that mean. If it were about geographic likes and dislikes,he would run in NY. The owner lives there.
Gotta love the Honor Code enthusiasts,they never give up do they. They beat Liam by a nose in the Whitney,and all of a sudden that is a substantial margin to call him the better horse. Then Charlie wants Liam to be penalized for supposedly taking the easier route in the BC. Yet the annointed Superstar should be rewarded for taking the so called "challenge" of the Classic. Wake up and smell the Coffee folks.To begin with Charlie,did Honor Code not duck the challenge of the G1 JCGC,just to run in the G2 Kelso.Also,since when do we give Brownie points for horses that lose,only because they ran in a race. Honor Code got spanked in his last 2 races of his career. In the Kelso he lost to the (JV Squad). In the Classic he lost by 12 lengths. Now we are supposed to Curb his performance(as teachers do on H.S. tests),and give him credit because there was no pace. This is and always has been a 1 trick pony. He is a horse in much needed help from others. He showed that he cannot do it on his own merits. I could care less about awards. But if Honor Code ever won one for the year he had. It might go down as the Sham of the decade.
He will be catching them st the right time.This being his 3rd race,he can potentially run the best race of his life. The other horses you mention are at the end of the sesson
Give me the fresh horse any day of the week. Also he should get sizeable weight allowance. Why not lay him up a bit,it worked with Liam this year
As the years go by , it is becoming more evident that McLaughlin is becoming the modern day version of Shug. By that i mean that he has a powerful stable,other than isolated instances in races. They do not win outside of New York. I compared him and think that he is a better version of Liam's Map. No need rushing him as a 4yo,he will be racing the entire year should he stay healthy. Run him in the Cigar,then get him ready around the early spring. Target the Met as his first major and go from there. Then the Whitney and other races will follow.
