Seeking the Soul found his form again and won the Ack Ack. Won the Clark on the surface last year and now won this. We know he likes Churchill.

I believe they are contemplating the Dirt Mile with this horse.

Anyone hear anything about why Spring Quality ran so far off his form in the Joe HIrsch? Hope he's OK. He seemed so competitive when he won that nail biter in June on Belmont Stakes day.

Anyone else notice the winner looked lame after the outrider let him go to jog back to the winners circle? Outrider quickly grabbed him again and they walked the rest of the way back...
Trainer made a comment in post race interview with Maggie that he needed to make sure his horse was OK. That puts the comment in better context. . .
Hoped I was just seeing things. Was walking fine at least!
Discreet Lover was placed on the vet's list today. He'll have to be officially OK'd before he can race again.

Does it mention anything that might be wrong? Or is it just a checkup?

I’m guessing it means he might not have been jogging sound still?

In a footnote to the Discreet Lover's unlikely victory, he was placed on the veterinarian's list after the race because of concerns over his physical condition. St. Lewis shrugged it off, saying the same thing happened after the Met Mile and the 5-year-old bounced back in his next start to finish third in the Suburban.

"After the race, they were interviewing (jockey Manny Franco) on horseback, so they were walking back slowly instead of letting him jog back so we could get some water on him and he tied up (muscle cramps or soreness). They put him on the vet's just like he did when he tied up after the Met Mile. He was drained. He gave everything he had to win that race. He was good and tired that night after the race but he ate up everything. He ate up everything Sunday night and he was much more active (Monday). In a couple of days we'll get him back on the track and afterwards, we'll work him and get him off the vet's list."

Discreet Lover will need to work four furlongs in 52 seconds to be cleared for racing, something St. Lewis said his horse "could do in his sleep."
