I'm pretty sure NBC is showing it yes.

Might just be my admittedly poor eyesight but War of Will looks older than 3.

Well War of Will ran better than his last two,

Mr Money looked super on his toes on the lead.

Good job Wizard, cool story

The trainer made me all teary eyed. Awww good for the connections! Improbable though definitely was not ready when those gates opened.

So, for anyone who hoped that this race might bring some clarity to the 3yo colt division.... :P :shock: :P :? :P
This has been such a weird year for this division.
Big congrats to Street Band and Sophie Doyle. It's so cool that the Brit rider has found a home here in The Colonies. :D

Guess who finished third to Maximum Security in that 16K maiden claimer at GP last December? Math Wizard.

She's really come along.

NEVER underestimate a Larry Jones filly anyway.......he is quite good with fillies. And as I said earlier, I love sophie doyle so I was happy to see this win.

It was the only thing I got right all day.

In the Cotillion, I can't bet BOTH favorites, as that offers no value. I think the last 2 races by both, for diffferent reasons, leave me wondering. So I may just be using Jeltrin or Street Band as keys and hope for good value over the favs. I like Sophie Doyle.

It is really is extraordinary to think two grade I winners came out of the same maiden claimer earlier in the year.

And I am not familiar with the trainer of Math Wizard, but I loved seeing how gratified and moved he was by winning his first grade I. Racing needs more good moments like that in the spotlight.

Kudos to the winner for getting up -- he closed into a really pedestrian pace.

I was at Parx, so never saw Saffie Joseph, Jr.’s post race interview until this morning.
Well done, very emotional and I geared up!

Right? And the owners posted a lovely tribute to the colt on Twitter. Hard not to root for this colt and his connections.
