Love the Kirby clip. Nice guy, knows what's important to him.
O’Brien’s comments on Bolshoi Ballet were good
”Bolshoi Ballet raced lifeless.I wouldn’t want to make any excuses as I don’t want to take away from the other horses”
Hurricane Lane lost both front shoes during the race
I was listening to Appleby in a post-race interview this morning & he thought all 3 Godolphins were ready to run competitively, favoring Hurricane but not surprised that when the big colt on the inside got rolling he wasn't going to stop. Gave all credit to Kirby & also pointed out that Adam "broke in" all 3 for the outfit. Very enjoyable Derby this year, IMO.
Kirby did a fantastic job to win from stall 1.He knew exactly what he had underneath him
Toyed with the King George field..
Looks to be improving tremendously..
Joy to watch gallop.
Just superb. As you know, the first since Galileo to double up The Derby & The King George. Adayar was so eager early ( reminiscent of Frankel's exuberance to go, go, go) & despite that energy draw still had plenty to be running by the far the best to the wire. Appleby has an embarrassment of riches in this one & Hurricane Lane\.
Friend sent me a cool photo of Adayar with Charlie's kids:
Great performance again.Full credit again to you on picking him for the Derby.He went off at a fair price again yesterday
