Moon absolutely belonged in the Derby. I mean, he did earn his berth.

HOwever, bolting and drifting are not at all the same problem. Not at all. He does both, although it may be related to the same REASON in the horse's head, they are actually very different.

Pletcher did a lousy job there. I really wish Moon had a differernt conditioner, but he may just be a late developer and/or have some bad habits that there wasn't time to fix.

I hold out hope for him but I think pletcher didn't teach him right

Since you want to drag politics into it, I, too, wish you'd move to Canada. :-)

So tired of people ragging on Trump. Even in racing forums. Unemployment is at record lows but lets continue to b*tch about the man.

Our family's life has improved 100% with him as president. EVERYONE is working at great paying jobs. Something that was not happening under Obummer. My son went from making $7.50/hour to $14.60/hour. He is doing what he said for the most part and the sore losers need to get a life. If moving to Canada is what makes your life complete, by all means, you are free to do so.

So go Trump and go Mendelssohn. :D

We're watching our energy industry walk away due to regulation and political roadblocks, with the winking approval of our Prime Minister and his handlers. A President/Prime Minister may not be able to move economies forward, bu they can sure as hell kill them dead.

I think we can agree this is sublime and much more on topic:

I would think the Travers Stakes is in his radar. I wonder if O'Brien is only aiming for one race prior the breeders cup then send him back home then come back to run in the Classic? I do not think that is do-able since he would be extremely lightly raced for this year. Are they considering a 4 year old season or it is the breeding shed?

He mentioned two, sooner after the Derby, initially, unless they plan to run him on grass a bit in Europe to keep him in racing shape? But I'm not sure how beneficial that would be to him.

Coolmore hasn't announced anything for him, but since they own him entirely it doesn't seem to be rare for them to run their future studs as older males for at least one season. I guess that will largely depend on his performances this year and what he does or doesn't win.

Wouldn't a return trip to Dubai be a more logical goal than the BreedersCupChurchillClassic?
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.
