Didn’t Loooch Racing buy Dalmore to run in that spot? Did he come up with a problem?

Maybe Hess Jr. didn’t see the #bigcap on the tweet when the sale went through or he figured they meant some other Big ‘Cap.

If Accelerate fades I like Curlin Road to out-plod Mubtaahij and Hoppertunity for the win.

I feel like it's too late to start question Ron Paolucci's decisions with his horses

Probably when Ria Antonia was moved to Amoss from Baffert after a 7th place run in the Oaks so that she could be prepped for the Preakness, where she finished last. Or when War Story was transferred to his 5th, 6th, 7th, trainer. Or when he tried to enter Heavenhasmynikki in the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile Fillies as her first ever race.

He definitely... has opinions
