At this time it's not clear. I'm not sure if they're going to prep him and bring him over for the Belmont or keep him home with a possible campaign towards the BC.

HTR stamped his line with that very dark bay/near black/black color.

I wonder if we can guess the tri?

Re: Fillies and Mares - 2018

When I lived in the south and would frequent Fairgrounds I would often get to hear chatter about certain horses. I find a lot of the "rail birds" are often more knowledgeable then the published writers. I also enjoyed the trainers and exercise riders comments. A lot of times you get more honest info...

My tired brain misunderstood lastnight :lol:

It does seem like a very underwhelming field. I wonder if we see anything come from a few of them later in the season.

Re: Fillies and Mares - 2018

Most of the BC Fillies haven't had a start this year.
Some of them haven't even worked.

Myself, I like:
Midnight Disguise
Midnight Bisou
