Travel Column’s run in the Oaks would seem to call into question the Louisiana Derby card, which Beyers liked almost as much as the SA.  

sorry, meant that for ALL lol

Pat Day Mile was fantastic.

Love those early fractions, that was great coming down the lane. Dream Shake has a lot of speed to finish second.

He lost to Rock Your World and behind Medina Spirit in his last race. Hmmnnn


From: Gerh


They both ran great,considering those early fractions

Exactly.....I think you have to upgrade the SA Derby and those 2 runners.

You guys are going to have to help me out here.  The horse that finished 8 1/2 lengths behind EQ last out (not the BG) beats the one that finished 2 lengths closer to RYW in the Santa Anita derby but that reflects well on the SA?  And Sitten on Go, beaten 18 lengths in the BG, finished only a head behind Defunded, who was 7 lengths closer in the SA.  

The speed held up for six furlongs but they ran the last quarter in 26 and two so it’s not like speed was carrying.
