I was wondering when BB was gonna run that thing. Where do you think he'll show up in the entries?
A NWIX for three year olds, race 8 this Friday. Salty field--Roadster's stablemate Dessman joins in and the well-regarded Nolo Contesto.

I saw Silver Charm at Old Friends' day-after-the-Derby party--he was in the paddock next to the picnic area and loving all the attention. I didn't realize he was 24 at the time!

Re: Filly who swished her tail

I have a vague memory to that effect but some horses will swish their tails in protest for being whipped. I'll wrack my brains for a specific filly, though.

Coolmore posted on FB that Abel Tasman will indeed go to Galileo. Good call! (I didn't even realize she was exported. :( )

Nice to see that AP is still as sweet as ever. A rarity in a breeding stallion, most are either hot or just kind of nasty because of the testosterone

Re: 2019 derby prep races.

I know it translates as "More Than Perfect," but it also brings back memories of learning French grammar! The plusque parfait is a verb tense--IIRC, the one that corresponds to "I had visited, I had seen," etc. 8-)

Godspeed Victor.
For some reason, me too. I was hoping he'd quit, but as long as he is fully healed and there is no added risk (unlike Gary Stevens) if he falls again, I suppose I should accept it.

Love that! George Foreman has made an amazing post-boxing career doing. .. well, not sure. But nice to see AP (ok George, you can pet me) and Justify (watch yo fingers bro) on his feed.

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

I didn't realize the Kentucky Derby went up to 3MM.. I too regret cannibalizing purses for other stakes and overall at the track. Nobody is not going to run in the KD because the purse is "only" $2MM, but adding $5000 to the purse of 200 races over the meet. . .makes a difference. But it is a reflec...

Dabster out. I was actually going down to the track today, but, er, changed my mind. Just light rain here 55 miles east but we are closer to the desert and never get hit as hard. Shame about the timing.

Trying to luck into the next Raise a Native or Malibu Moon, I suppose. Valiant Minister was a $680,000 OBS juvenile, then won his only start for Baffert, six furlongs in 1.08.82. Second dam is Lunar Spook. How many mares did TGM get his first year? :roll:

He did seem like he had more growth than his adversaries; I just wonder if he didn't mature too soon and will be passed up. Tempus tellus.
