oh hold the presses.....Mendelssohn was sweating after being overhydrated on a VERY LONG transatlantic flight, then quarantined, then dropped down onto a foreign track.

When he sweat, they were going bonkers and there were all sorts of conspiracy theories about what a toss he was.

So, just wondering if Good Magic gets tossed for sweating under way less stress and abolutely no tough circumstances :lol:


oh, wait, d some kind of PSTD brought on by memories of Derby rain? :D poor good magic--

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

David Grening , Pimlico Race Course , 2018-05-16 - DRF Live Posted

Kentucky Derby runner-up Good Magic looked much better Wednesday morning than he did Tuesday, his first day on the track, as he galloped 1 1-2 miles over a sealed muddy Pimlico main track at around 7:30 a.m.

On Tuesday, Good Magic had a slow, steady gallop and got noticeably hot as he jogged past the grandstand on his way to leaving the track.

On Wednesday, Good Magic picked up the pace of his gallop and had minimal swet around his neck.

"He was better today, normal gallop," said Jose Hernandez, assistant to trainer Chad Brown. "He got a little hot yesterday, but it was his first day. He looked good today. He handled the track really well."

Sporting Chance didn't even want to jog this morning, kidney sweat too.

I think this is the second time this week Sporting Chance has refused to work as asked.
This Paulick article doesn't mention it, just says that that he and Bravazo took it 'easy' this morning. :?

ETA: This Bloodhorse article also doesn't say anything about Sporting Chance refusing to jog.

Well in all fairness, refusing to break off and perform a scheduled work (where the track posts the work results for the public) is not the same as showing reluctance to move forward on the track for a jog. Although for a horse they may be part and parcel of the same problem. . .

What is the best and worst post positions at Pimlico?

The rail was cited as a bad place to be for years, but I'm not sure how much evidence there was for it and it certainly didn't stop American Pharoah. It definitely varies from year to year- the rail in 2013 was noticeably dead, not that anyone told Rosario...

The draw is likely to be more important. Nyquist drew the other speed immediately inside and outside of him in 2016 and he got cooked by the ensuing speed duel.

he's exactly like his sire. Does what he wants when he wants. Lukas said the same
Personally having seen him in person 2x, I think he is a late bloomer type
