Brilliant performance.

Took flight at the top of the stretch and kept rolling.

Looks like we've got us a miler specialist.

I was expecting so much more from Noble Indy...

Congratulations to Firenze Fire though! That was one heck of a performance!

I wouldn't be terribly disappointed in Mendelssohn for finishing behind a decent colt who clearly loves Belmont, especially in his first run back since the Derby, but...
...losing out on 2nd to Seven Trumpets (who?) is not good. :?
This race can't being giving the Boys of Ballydoyle much confidence in their plans to take this colt to the BC Classic.

Do you think his Dubai win was a fluke??? Should they put him back on dirt?

Seven Trumpets was second to Firenze Fire in the one mile Jerome, also.


I can make excuses for Mendy, but I do think his UAE Derby may have over dressed him a bit.

Wondering if Mendy should have entered the Belmont Derby instead?

I may be misremembering, but I don't think his grass races have been his best. :?

I did. Only to see my 6-1 horse go to 5/2 odds.

I usually don't put much of my money into U.S. racing anymore......the reasons why would take 10 pages to explain. Most people don't need the explanation though. :D
