Agree completely.

Candy Ride ought to be getting the same sort of blue-blooded mares as Tapit, MDO, etc.


Candy Ride is a very good sire. This is right on the heels of Ascend capturing the Manhattan on turf.

I love that horses like Mor Spirit and Gun Runner and heck, even Whitmore are showing the world what happens when you let colts mature at least another year. Maybe with the PWC and DWC and BCC triple forming, we just might see some good G1 handicap horses a little more often.

Kudos to the winner who seems to be improving with every start and may well give Arrogate a good race in the BC, but cannot understand the ride on Bird Song- taking back when you know he runs best on the lead. The race was over as soon as GR got an easy uncontested lead. Not saying by any means that Bird Song would have won but at least give him a chance to be competitive.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

That ride was absurd. Well said.

And who knows how good/brilliant another Candy Ride, Mastery, may be or what he may have accomplished had he been able to run in the TC events.

May have been, since he's definitely retired now :(
Hopefully he'll be equally skilled with better luck in the shed.
