Very impressive win at DMR today by Eight Rings! By Empire Maker out of the Pure Prize mare Purely Hot and trained by Bob Baffert, definitely one to watch going forward. Reminds me somewhat of his sire in appearance/conformation.

I would suggest people listen to two former jockeys, Rich Migliore and Tony Black, during the latter part of this recording (you can click the slider bar to the 01:16:00 mark, about 3/4s of the way to go straight there) : https://stevebyk.com/broadcast/part-2-johnny-d-rusty-arnold-bret-calhoun-tony-...

Had he fallen right there, yikes. And that was the point... yes, they were obviously close when he came out but they didn't clip h...
I just looked over the pp's and after doing so one horse really moved up my list: By My Standards. I had him about 10th on my list. Now he's my 3rd choice behind Roadster and Maximum Security. Off the numbers, it looks like he could win. Given they are predicting a 100% chance of rain on Saturday, ...
