The way he times his final move always gets me. What a pro!luvsgeldings wrote: ↑Sat May 18, 2019 9:17 pmoh my gosh thank you for posting that glorious win by dear Gander!! what a smart horse - he rode a perfect race - didn't bother anyone, stalked the leader - and knew when to make his move for the lead - one of my most favorite races ever! I remember watching it live and could not stop smiling after.... he was so awesome!
it was fun to watch it again. thank you!!
I found this lovely Barbara Livingston retrospective about Gander while looking for the race- enjoy! https://www.drf.com/blogs/catching-gander
War of Will has really surprised me, I had him completely wrong going into the Derby. I'm not sure I like him in the Belmont, and people are already talking about a possible golden rail, but he came home very strongly today and the race came back quicker than the Derby on Timeform ratings. Interested to see what the Beyer says, although Everfast, who was impossible on paper, may complicate things.
