Someone forgot to tell Knicks Go what his odds were. . .
And someone failed to tell DWL that his horse is still a maiden.

"He reminds me of my mom's cat."

Small, feisty orange tabby? :lol:
I really hope he stays up. That contact hurt him more than the larger Uncle Benny.
He is definitely a small, feisty orange tiger... plus he purposely makes his "task" more difficult by diving between chair rungs, etc to chase toys instead of taking a direct path. Seems very much how the analysts described Lune of Duty on the NBC telecast and he kind of did that during the stretch drive . ;)

Nice win by Audible in the Cherokee Run. It's good to know that one of this year's talented three-year-olds will be running as a four-year-old. Read something about him possibly targeting the Pegasus.

Looked to me like she did!

Side note it’s almost weird to see such big fields running on he maintrack anymore... was a sight to behold for a while there!

Wild finish in the F&M Sprint, as four horses hit the wire so close it will take Shutter Cam to find the winner. :lol:
Replay shows Shamrock Rose got her nostrils in front. Think this is the first time a three-year-old filly has won the F&M Sprint.

Last year I had my heart shattered when Ami's Mesa got nosed out in the last stride as a longshot... sweet redemption!! And thank you to the pre-race ladies for pointing out how good Chalon looked!! I'm so happy right now.

That pace was just ridiculous...

Yeah...poor Selcourt got pushed so hard to hold her spot along the rail and get the lead that she had nothing left in the stretch. Crazy fast early fractions.

I cannot believe Stormy Liberal is 7-1 here. Y'all are going to hear me wherever you are if he or Rainbow Heir wins. Or Bucchero, who is wonderful.

For some reason, they are starting the broadcast with the Dirt Mile. I hope somebody eventually realizes how fun and marketable the Turf Sprint is.

NBCSN starts its coverage at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern. Dirt Mile is the first BC race it shows.
TVG is showing the F&M Sprint and the Turf Sprint. Glad I get TVG, because the Turf Sprint is going to be a really exciting race.

I am glad I get TVG too - but its just absurd that NBC is not showing all of the BC races.

Can't believe World of Trouble is the fav for the turf sprint... if you like the reigning champ you're getting a bang up price

they are producing a feed, but you have to go to breederscup.com to see it (I just switched over from xpressbet because the video quality seems better)

Right?? And Disco Partner second-favored at 7-2! Can't complain, but never would have seen it coming.

Some drama in the paddock now, it seems.
