1 U S Navy Flag Aidan O'Brien Sports two straight Group 1 victories; dirt is an obvious question, chose this instead of the Juvenile Turf 12-1
2 Solomini Bob Baffert Was beaten a long way by Bolt d'Oro in the FrontRunner, yet still ran creditably while finishing second 10-1
3 Firenze Fire Jason Servis Ran his best race yet to upset the Champagne, but think he beat many distance-challenged opponents 8-1
4 Givemeaminit Dallas Stewart Maiden ran well when close third in Hopeful, but disappointed when stretched out in Breeders' Futurity 15-1
5 Free Drop Billy Dale Romans His Breeders' Futurity score was visually appealing, but in contrast, it was very slow against the clock 6-1
6 Good Magic Chad Brown Champagne runner-up wasn't one of those distance-challenged opponents, looking to post maiden win 8-1
7 The Tabulator Larry Rivelli Bumped his unbeaten streak to three winning the Iroquois, but he was really begging for the wire late 20-1
8 Bahamian Simon Callaghan Thought he might be the Champagne speed, instead he trailed early after a bad start; still overmatched 30-1
9 Hazit Todd Pletcher Empty in Champagne after beating Good Magic in debut thanks to having an easy early lead; I'll pass 20-1
10 Golden Dragon Mikhail Yanakov Has won two straight, but on turf and with slow Beyer Figures; must improve a ton to merely contend 30-1
11 Bolt d'Oro Mick Ruis Figured to really blossom when he stretched out, but his FrontRunner romp was beyond expectations 6-5
12 Hollywood Star Dale Romans Finished second in the slowly run Iroquois in his route debut; needs a big Beyer Figure improvement 20-1

Fun fact: 2yo US Navy Flag will make the same # of starts in one season (11) as Arrogate will make in his entire career. That 2yo is hardy

Pretty standard Aidan O'Brien stuff. Unless it looks like a Camelot or Australia from day one, he's not afraid to race them pretty frequently until they hit their stride - just ask Homecoming Queen!

Free Drop Billy is a flashy boy. Any chance for Good Magic here?

US Navy Flag looked pretty good on the track this morning. Still interested in seeing what he'll do and why the Wizard of Ballydoyle chose to send the son of War Front on the dirt, and keep the half brother to Beholder and Into Mischief on the Turf...

I don't see why Coolmore didn't try sending Mendelssohn to Pletcher or whomever they use for US based dirt horses right off if they have any thought of Derby at all with him. I haven't looked much at him in action - does he move like a grass horse?

"He's dirt top and bottom—classic American dirt pedigree," O'Brien said. "We thought that we would come here and give him a chance on the grass and then maybe switch him after that and look at training him for the Kentucky Derby trials."

Thank you! Makes sense, and I do suppose that the Juvie Turf is a softer spot than the Juvie.
