I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Yikes. I’m pulling for Catalina Cruiser, but that rail won’t do him any favors.

IMHO, the Sprint may have the most quality entrants of any of the BC races. I wouldn't be flabbergasted if almost anyone won. :shock:

Really, really nice field. Can't wait for this one and I have a hard time separating any of them.

A couple of me handicapping rules come into play here.

1) It's okay if you can't project improvement for some horse, just hope your horse can merely repeat their best effort to date.

2) When in doubt, rather than conjure up images of a closer in a race that could collapse, just bet the speed of the speed.

Well, that makes it easier!

Really interested in Matera Sky...

I have to go with Imperial Hint. I know there's sentimentality happening here, but I just really want to see the diminutive 'Hint totally disappear behind a bruiser like Catalina Cruiser...and then push his head past at the wire. :D
And I also think he is that good. That burly running-back body of his has some serious acceleration in it.

Whitmore!!!
I’m hoping all that speed helps the tough guy out.

Imperial Hint is a vet scratch. Damn it.

He was apparently tender to the touch around his coronet band. I wonder if anyone has input on this and if it means much in terms of soundness? My entire body is tender to the touch but it doesn't really stop me from being active... nor have doctors ever told me to stop.

I guess they have to be extra careful this weekend.

He apparently has glue on shoes. The glue gets hot and created a blister on his coronet. Bad timing, but he should be fine in a few days.

Phooey. :(
The vets were busy this morning; Suedois and Bolo have also been scratched from The Mile.
