Track record time, official margin is 18 1/2 lengths. He was an impressive, talented colt on grass. He is an entirely different beast on dirt.
Coolmore must be thrilled.

Nearly brought tears to my eyes, I had chills as soon as he hit the top of the stretch... To work for the lead, set a robust pace and then to just pull away at the end like that and keep pulling away... it's like he found another entirely new gear.
If he goes to Kentucky, it will be worth mentioning that he will have run the distance closest to 10f out of any other horse, and to run it like that.
The loss of Scat Daddy looms larger than ever.

This fits with the above post. Chuck Fipke is in her stall, all smiles and happy. Just loving on his mare. :)
Nice. I so enjoy seeing owners with their horses and loving them.

Wow! Mind Your Biscuits - back to back! That was an impressive finish, I didn't think he'd quite collar X Y Jet but he proved me wrong!

Curious if TVG will be showing the big race live?
The reason I ask is that I see NBC sports network is covering it too!?!?!
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

When he got up to about 1/2 length off Roy H I thought "there's no one he gets past X Y Jet"... and then he just kept going.
He earned a Stakes Record time 1:10.12

I DVR'd the early races and just watched the UAE Derby.... :o :o :o :o :o :o :o
Not sure I can add much to what everyone else said about Mendelssohn, but this may be the year when the UAE Derby provides a real threat for the Run for the Roses. Beholder's little brother was good on grass and synth, but he is a BEAST on dirt.
Yeah, Treve, Scat Daddy is a huge loss to the breed. We could see four of his colts (Combatant, Flameaway, Justify, Mendelssohn) make the Derby gate.

Can I just say that I love how they have the best turned out horse and recognize their grooms with an award

After his gate antics, I thought Hawkbill was done. That was a pleasant surprise.
