They're all good horses, but... I hope Ben's Cat gets it.

It's a tossup between Lady Eli (so courageous) and Ben's Cat (the steady warrior) for me.

I'd like to see Ben's Cat get it. Speaking of Patch, haven't heard much from him lately - on vacation?

Yes, last I heard, at Calumet being a horse. Expected to race next year.

Yeah, gotta be. Songbird, Arrogate, Gun Runner, Lady Eli all have the regular Eclipse awards to hope for. Ben's Cat was a real blue-collar kind of horse, the kind that make up the backbone of the industry.

I'd vote for Ben's Cat 1st and Lady Eli 2nd. They really fit the original intent of this award, IMHO.

I so love Gun Runner, but he'll be getting other awards. Ben deserves the honor.
