He does have his own thread ! Looking forward to the Met Mile.

Opps, I searched, must not have looked far enough down the page. Wondering where the speed is going to be in the Met Mile with Sharp Azteca and Army Mule on the sidelines, MYB is wondering too. . . .

I’m kind of looking forward to the Pimlico Special because I have a soft spot for Untrapped.

Irish War Cry lo Jed really impressive leading wire to wire in Pimlico Special. Seems Graham Motion has gotten his “thumps” under control and expects big things from him the rest of the year. Will be interesting to see how his time of 1:55.5 compares to the Preakness time tomorrow at the same distance.

I like IWC a lot, but he folds pretty badly when any form of speed is applied to his comfortable lead.

Good ride by Victor on Accelerate. I thought he was done on the turn, but once he got him out and rapped him right handed Accelerate did just that.

City of Light looked like the last eighth was a bridge too far. Breeder's Cup Dirt Mile?

I think City of Light could win at 10F but he’d have to catch the right field.

Accelerate has surprised me by turning into a very nice horse over the past year. His San Diego win over Arrogate last summer was no fluke and was a bit of a coming out party for him. This year he is a neck away from being unbeaten in four starts.
