I'm disappointed that NBC couldn't find a way to include the Suburban in their telecast; it could be the best race on the card today.

Coverage has resumed on NYRA.com, if anyone is interested. I always appreciate Maggie's observations.

I appreciate being turned on to the Dubai site, so that I can watch the race live. However, I have not missed having to listen to the grating voice of Toad Schtupp on TVG. :roll:

Did going to the front so early cost Catholic Boy in the stretch?
IMHO, I thought the jock moved too soon, but maybe he had a horse who was fighting for his head? :?

Tried to watch on NYRA but have to open wagering account which I prefer not to do. Catholic Boy better on the turf I think. Preservationist very impressive, happy for Jimmy Jerkens a really good trainer who cares a lot about his horses.

I don't have a wagering account at NYRA, but then I joined many years ago and perhaps thus have avoided later, more stringent membership requirements.

Maggie H. noted pre-race that Preservationist was one of two horses that really seemed to like the track in the warm up.

Claiborne's future sire Catholic Boy might not have won, but their late stallion Arch "won."

I'm a fan of Catholic Boy, but if he had to lose I'm glad it was to an [intact] son of Arch.

Has it been established why Preservationist is only coming into form as a 6 year old? I see he only has 8 starts.

They took it slow with this horse and it's nice to see it paying off. He was fantastic today. 108 beyer and it looks like the sky is the limit.

Catholic Boy ran fine, it was a savvy move to move for the lead on that slow pace, but in two starts this year it doesn't quite feel like he's made the necessary step forward as an older horse. Looking forward to seeing where he heads next.

We don't look the gift if an older thoroughbred still running at 6 in the mouth.

Sounds like he may have had hoof issues that would flair up.

“We always knew he had a lot of talent,” Jerkens said. “It was very frustrating to never get any continuity with him. Something would happen.

Yeah, on the form there is a long layoff, ~18 months, after his debut race.

108 Beyers for both Preservationist and Promises Fulfilled. Nice!
