Maybe he just really likes Del Mar.

Thought you were going to give me props for my Key horse. And tossing the favorite. Oh, and hitting the Super!?!

Great run by Battle of Midway.
Mor Spirit looked like a horse who has lost his zest for this whole racing game. :? Wonder if a retirement is coming?

I certainly will give you props for all of the above because I gave up, threw a 2$ place bet on Sharp Azteca and called it a day :lol: (which I can't be too mad about)

Just recalling our conversation, I don't have everyone's picks memorized. Congrats, you nailed that race.

I'm sure at some point but I don't know that he's done enough to make much of a prospect with his breeding. He ran out of his skin in the Met Mile which necessitated recovery, I would think, and has just started to come around in his training. I thought maybe Baffert would have run him in that same race that Hopportunity ran in last weekend--maybe he wasn't eligible--and then go to the Cigar Mile since his best race was a one-turn mile. I don't remember his debut, but Mor Spirit has never impressed me as a horse who excels off of a layoff.
