Did Imperative get transferred to Lukas? Maybe Loooch should to give him a break.😉

Isn't War Story Loooch as well?

I'm fine with a hose running when it's right and placing them competitively.

He used to be, but he's owned by Imaginary Stables and Glenn Ellis now.

War Story should be in good form to win it.

Last time I saw Imperative, Mind Your Biscuits was walloping on him in a morning workout. He did not look good. This was just a week or two ago.

So, depending on how Imperative does, it either can flatter or diminish Biscuits.

I feel like this is a race for an upset, but honestly the class of the field (to me) is War Story and Rocketry. War Story has danced this dance before and Rocketry broke Man 'O War's record.

I'm not sure if TONY has been tested at this distance before. Has he?

All in on Honorable Duty to finish 2nd. No idea who the winner is, but Duty will be right there at the end.

And Rocketry beat War Story by a big margin in the Temperance Hill. I believe Rocketry is the morning line favorite, but not by much. Hard to know what he is because they just switched him to the dirt that last race. Would love to see him win. Been following him since his debut. He seems to have a big stride. Other horses are pumping away and he just lopes along and passes them. Watch the Temperance Hill and you will see what I mean.

I would say that given the workout, Imperative is irrelevant to gauging MYB.

To all the concerned people wondering, Honorable Duty seems fine, Jose felt him take a couple of short steps and quite rightly pulled him up. He’ll be back! Thank God!

Very happy for Rocketry. Another track record, too. Not a common distance, so I guess setting a record doesn't mean that much, but nice to see all the same.
