I was always a big fan of him.

~ "He's not a racehorse," wow, you think?
That’s all that came to mind.

G1-winner Force the Pass is retired and will stand in Maryland at Anchor & Hope Farm for a reasonable $4000 fee. Totally think this horse is a steal at that price, given his pedigree, conformation and ability. He was a “force” at 3, and may not have been as brilliant later on, but I won’t forget his...
That was a good run by Catalina Cruiser - the pace was hot, he was wide, looked like GE was going to get by and Cruiser found an extra gear.
I’ve certainly never had any thoughts of malice towards the horse. I just have come to the conclusion that he doesn’t have a discernible turn of foot. Does he need that to win a G1? No but it does mean tinkering needs to be done. I trust Mott if he thought that bad luck was the root cause of Tacitu...
I’m looking forward to the Alabama - Dunbar Road was my longshot pick in the Oaks but she didn’t make it in. I think her and Guarana are the two top fillies in this division (sorry Serengeti Empress).
B & M, imo, is the leading candidate for HOY... and I know lots of people will disagree... but 4 dominating G1 wins, and I would say it’s going to take a damn good horse to beat him (if he gets beat) in the BC Turf. The horse reminds me of his sire - tough, talented and competitive.
I just cannot get behind a horse who comes from a sire line of big, slower maturers and with a grandsire with zig-zag legs... who runs THAT fast. How long is he going to be around???
