Re: 2019 Belmont Stakes

So the 2019 TC saw two winners with juvenile seasons based in Canada. War of Will was second in the Summer Stakes. Sir Winston won the Display Stakes and hit the board in the Grey Stakes. They're both Mark Casse trainees of course but it is still very neat. That is cool, but perhaps it signals a cr...

Re: Belmont Stakes Race Day Card

Finally got a replay and checked some conversations online, and I'm really surprised by the lack of love I'm seeing for Mitole. Yeah, McKinzie didn't have room to run in the stretch, but he also saved ground along a good rail while rating off of a brutal pace. Mitole set that pace while contesting ...

Desert Ride won the Canadian Oaks today for Sam-Son Farm. Her 2nd dam is Canadian champ Eye of the Sphynx.
Which makes Queen's Plate winner Eye of the Leopard her uncle.
And GSW Deceptive Vision her aunt. Lovely family. Desert Ride looks like a very good one for them!

Yet another outstanding victory. Are there any better horses in training than the ones we're seeing today?
Today’s winners for the most part are the leaders of their division... aside from Sir Winston. 3-year-old boys are anyone’s guess. Is Omaha Beach ever coming back?

Re: Three G1s Monday @ Santa Anita

That was a fun day of racing, but geez, Delta Prince... I really thought he’d run better. Nice surprise win by Bolo, who still has it! Vasilika is a gem. I think Vino Rosso ran a good race, but Gift Box cooked himself running after those fractions and maybe got tired? I also am not convinced he’s a ...

I was at the BC in 2001 when Jump Start suffered his injury. I left after that. Never saw the Classic. I was already emotionally strained after Exogenous suffered her injury.
