Kennedy, it's looking like Minding isn't going to make the BC...might not even make it back this year.

I wonder what Aiden means when he says, "So it's possible we might run out of time with her." Out of time for her to race again this year? Or would it mean retirement for the classy filly?

Kennedy, I appreciate your loyalty to Accelerate--and I'm not sure who should go ahead of him. At 10F anyway.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

That's where I was kind of standing as well. I suppose Keen Ice? But really we know who he is. He'll get the occasional win but he's really just not likely to win a race like the Classic. He is likely better at his best than Accelerate but is not really improving. Accelerate in my mind still has the chance to improve and is at least based in Cal.

We'll see. I would appreciate some better depth in the division though!

Accelerate just upset Arrogate.

Good one, Kennedy.

We know that wasn't the real Arrogate who ran a clunker today. But it is nice to know you ranked Accelerate early on.

And that was a nice win by Accelerate. With all the shock over Arrogate's non-performance, IMHO the winner kind of got forgotten.

The second time Accelerate finished ahead of Arrogate.

Is Accelerate the Noor/Sunday Silence/Eli Manning to Arrogate's Citation/Easy Goer/Tom Brady? We know Arrogate is the better talent but sometimes the better talent can't beat a particular opponent when they match up.

Accelerate, the Arrogate-killer.

Jay Privman‏ @DRFPrivman

Sadler on fence re: Pacific Classic with Accelerate. May take shot at 1 1/4 miles since 3 for 3 here but goal remains BC Dirt Mile
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.
