I guess it depends on what West Coast does in the BC and what Oscar Performance does at the BC too. I think for a turf horse to win 3-year-old champ, the dirt colts need to do terribly and the turf horse needs to win at the BC ... which would make him more likely to win top turf horse.
And, you saw West Coast's dominating Travers and Pennsylvania Derby, right? That horse is the clear leader right now in that division.

Gallant Bob winner Coal Front suffered a condylar fracture in the race.

Was the Parx surface a bit too fast/hard for their big day of racing? :?

Gormley has been retired, per @spendthriftfarm, where he will begin stud duty next spring. He won SA Derby, FrontRunner, both G1s.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Always Dreaming Recovering From Ulcers, Will Return To Racing In 2018
Always Dreaming, winner of this year's Kentucky Derby (G1) and Florida Derby (G1), will return to training in November and be pointed for a 4-year-old racing campaign in 2018, it was announced Monday.

The 3-year-old colt from the first crop of Bodemeister was found to have stomach ulcers after the Travers Stakes, and was recently cleared of the ulcers by veterinarians after treatment and a month of being turned out at WinStar Farm in Versailles, KY.

“When Always Dreaming came to the farm, we had a complete physical conducted by Dr. Bramlage and his team at Rood & Riddle. He checked out extremely well and was in very good shape, except for his stomach,” said WinStar President & CEO Elliott Walden. “He had a pretty bad case of ulcers. Dr. Steve Reed of Rood & Riddle said it was one of the worst cases of ulcers he has seen. The interesting thing is (trainer) Todd (Pletcher) said his appetite was always stellar, and he has been treated with Gastrogard all year. Todd is extremely vigilant on taking care of his horses, and it was a complete shock to all involved. The great news is we've been able to clear up the ulcers and he's doing fantastic right now. It also explains a lot about his regression in form, and we are extremely excited about his racing potential in 2018. The sky is the limit.”

Always Dreaming will have a follow-up scope of his stomach in the coming weeks, and he'll continue to be turned out through the end of the month. Plans call for him to resume light training at WinStar's training facility on Nov. 1, before being sent down to Palm Beach Downs on Dec. 1 to rejoin trainer Todd Pletcher's Florida operation.

Dr. Bramlage and his team have now diagnosed problems in two star racehorses (Songbird and Always Dreaming) that their experienced and conscientious trainers missed. :shock:
Just another example of how horses have evolved over thousands of years to be mysterious and stoic, never giving a hint of weakness to all the wolves and lions lurking outside their paddocks. :roll: :P
Bless Doc B. Glad that AD will race as a four-year-old.

Doesn't sound like Always Dreaming has the stomach for racing!
