Thanks for that info. Glad to hear it. It would be throwing him to the wolves. He's too inexperienced.

Well here's an interesting tidbit about another runner in the Lexington Stakes. Souper Tapit is out of Zo Impressive, talented winner of the G1 Mother Goose from Hard Spun's first crop. I think she was second to Questing in the CCA Oaks, and then 4th in the Alabama and injured in that race and retired.

TIme to Travel finished 4th after leading for a while. He last raced just 2 weeks ago and he had never raced at a route distance before. So he probably got tired. THey were saying it was a very tiring track today.

DIADURA returns in race 1, an allowance, at Wiloodbine this Friday. She's been off for 6 months. Looked really good in her first 2 races last fall and the didn't lift a hoof in the Alcibides. Hoping that last was a fluke. Returning to the all weather surface should help, too.

Portmagee won the License Fee Stakes today at Belmont Park. Summer Reading finished third. I believe she is Hard Spun's 60th stakes winner!
