Really nice win by Mor Spirit in the Essex at Oaklawn. Could augur a good day for Mike Smith.

That was very nice. That pace toasted everyone else but he had a second wind in the stretch. I was never convinced by him, but I'm interested to see what he has in store for this year.

He could have a useful career--sort of Hoppertunity-ish, but with a little more pop.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Mor Spirit was a horse I liked for the Derby last year, so it's nice to see him developing into a good handicap horse. I like the way he runs with his head low, a very unique "style". Have they said where to next?

They haven't said, but one would have to think the Oaklawn Handicap would be on their radar.

Multiple GSW Kid Cruz bowed a tendon in the 2nd at Aqueduct today and has been retired. He will be gelded and sent to his breeder, Machmer Hall in KY, and eventually retrained for a 2nd career.

I wish I could ride without my body screaming at me. I'd adopt him as a lawn ornamant and take him for long walks.

Go Giants.

Happy retirement to Kid Cruz. I always liked him, glad to hear they'll take care of him. He deserves it!

So what's the latest on Drefong? Has he gone into the Baffert MIA vortex, or is he back in training yet?
