Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

Imo, HOY is not even a contest this year, and shouldn't be. While I'm glad for Sadler winning the BCC, Accelerate only ran one more race than Justify year to date, and his BSF for the BCC was the 2nd slowest in the history of the race - only BCC Drosselmeyer's figure was lower. What's more, this occ...

I get that we've been starved of TC winners but IMO just winning the three races (the last in a shady fashion) shouldn't automatically make him Horse of The Year.
However, it's all but guaranteed that it will just as it always has going back to War Admiral.

Re: 2018 Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) - Nov 2nd

Game Winner much the best considering his wide trip -- a very impressive performance! Just to add... It's great to see a BC Juvy winner that has the physical makeup, and especially the pedigree, to excel at the classic distances next year. Hopefully this soon-to-be 2yo champion stays healthy going ...

Re: 2018 Two-year-olds

Love Game Winner's pedigree--Candy Ride x an A.P. Indy mare, who is out of Fleet Indian IIRC. Very nice effort. Dittos on GW's pedigree - it's outstanding. I heard BB on Byk's radio show mention that if you happen to get a good Candy Ride, that they can be REALLY good. Pedigree aside, something tha...

Kudos to Mendelssohn for sticking around down the stretch after those swift early fractions. This race should do him well toward the BCC.

Re: 2018 Two-year-olds

Awesome performance by Game Winner in winning the American Pharoah at SA. The sky's the limit for this one and it's great that long time owners Gary and Mary West have a very nice 2 yo. He has all the tools physically as well as pedigree, hopefully he stays healthy and continues to progress toward n...

Re: 2018 Two-year-olds

A very nice work by DMR Futurity champ Game Winner heading into the American Pharoah, where he'll take on Instagrand. He appears to have all of the physical attributes and pedigree going forward... really curious to see how he fares. I thought Instagrand was taking the rest of the year off? Thanks,...

Re: 2018 Two-year-olds

Game Winner won impressively first out today at DMR, pulling away in the stretch. He also has a very nice pedigree, by Candy Ride out of an AP Indy mare. Looks like one to watch going forward.

Victoria is still registered, has an account here, but she hasn't been here in ages. Up to her if she and when she wants to visit the forum. :)
Hmm... isn't she the owner of the forum? Also, does she still work for Porter's stable?

Re: Justify

I know Justify started out in some other trainer's barn, but I don't know whether that was always just a "starting out" assignment or whether he was transferred to Baffert only when he looked like something special. Anyone can clarify? From the Justify (horse) Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

It was a great day at SA today. Got a couple of Justify posters signed by both Mike Smith and Bob Baffert, and also won a pair of goggles in the raffle signed by Mike Smith. And while waiting for Justify to come out, none other than Barbara Livingston happened by and it was a lot of fun chatting wit...

Thought I read somewhere that there's going to be a segment on Justify winning the TC on the NBC Nightly News... Anyone know if so, and if true when it's going to be broadcast? It was tonight. Here's a link to the show, the segment on Justify is towards the end. https://www.nbc.com/nightly-news/vid...

Interestingly, some similarities between the two "big reds", Secretariat and Justify: Both big chestnuts with white blaze on face Ran on the same calendar dates for the three TC races Secretariat born on 3/30, Justify born on 3/28 (The first "big red", Man 'o War born on 3/29) Their respective sires...

Re: Justify

The smartest decision they made was sending him to Baffert. He’d still be going through his conditions if he was with Pletcher or Brown. An excellent point! And with that in mind, it was mentioned recently on ATR how Baffert is 5-for-5 in the Preakness with his horses that won the KD, and the quest...
