Stellar Wind looks whippet-thin in the walking ring. :?

I think Forever Unbridled will go off at a great price and she's been flying under the radar. I really like her chances here and I think she will likely get a pace setup since it'd be stupid for any of them to let Paradise Woods alone on the lead and Stellar Wind is great at pressing (but UF has proven she can run into a soft pace as well and isn't as dependent on it unlike Abel Tasman iirc so I like her better).


I like the two main older mares over the 3yos. Never believed this year's 3yo fillies were consistently impressive, and Elate simply hasn't run very fast (ONE single digit Rag # the whole year). My concern with Stellar Wind is Sadler's record in the Breeders Cup overall, but I am going to use both of them in this leg of the P4.


A few days on and I definitely think you're right to be concerned. I don't know how I feel about Elate besides the fact she will have to step up to be the older mares. Throwing a straight show on Stellar Wind as backup but I'm playing Forever Unbridled.

Mike Smith's mount, Abel Tasman, has a bit of the Zenyatta strut. Cute. And an omen?

With all of that, and i'm still not wagering on her, Elate is the best looking horse i've seen all day.

I have Forever Unbridled and Stellar Wind used interchangeably on top, but I think the former looks a lot better than the latter. Stellar Wind doesn't really look bad to me but Forever Unbridled looks great.

I can't use her at 2-1, but Elate is lovely.

Forever Unbridled and Elate would win if this was a competition based on condition. They look fantastic, especially Elate.

Man Stellar Wind got a perfect trip and had absolutely nothing.

Forever Unbridled is so talented, happy for her.

Stellar Wind's coat looks very pale and flat...has she been bodyclipped? :?
ETA: It looks like her pale coat was a hint...she was a shadow of herself today.
