Really excited to see The Grey Gatsby stateside; I had no idea Weld was shipping him over. I've been a fan of him since his three-year-old season. He hasn't won recently but the waters are undoubtedly much shallower over here as he was knocking heads with some of the best horses in the world in Europe. He'll also get that firm turf he likes and the services of John Velazquez.

That's a nice field. I wouldn't be shocked if any one of a half dozen horses won, but I'm pulling for Oscar Performance to step up against older.

Big "A" talked me into liking Sadlers Joy, hoping for 4/1.

Big "A?" That wouldn't happen to be Big Al, would it?

Beach Patrol much the best. Fanciful Angel second, Oscar Performance third.

What a powerful performance by the son of Lemon Drop Kid!!!
I would love to see him run in the Japan Cup later this year.
He may fancy Tokyo 2400m, pedigreewise, too.

??? Do you want them to forfeit the all-expenses paid trip to the BC they just won?
Or do want him to run in both November races???

I would think that he can run in both BC Turf (Nov 4) and JC (Nov 26).

Disappointing effort from The Grey Gatsby.

But I suppose if someone else had to win, I don't mind it being a son of Lemon Drop Kid.
