I noticed the same thing...cagey Cox!
Thanks, I always appreciate being pointed toward a horse that often gets overlooked.....
Now I have one for you and Rob...
utr trainer, Brittany Russell, primarily trains at Laurel Park and Pimlico, occasionally ventures out to SAR, or CD, by Frosted.....has won first two impressively. Let's see where placed next, do watch replays
Will check out Post Time. Not dinging trainer for track she runs at mostly, though she has only won one graded stakes and that was a G3 at BEL in 2021. I look at her more like a claiming trainer type. I like the broodmare sire and dam, but both seemed to be a late developers.
Would like to see this MD bred in next race, which is hopefully a stakes race. Had a lot of trouble in last and seems very bold for being green. That's a good sign.
Bad sign is the jockey, his 3rd mount in 6 years ad first win since........2016. That probably won't cut it in a better stakes. He was good back in 2005-2013.
There are only 2 stakes races left for 2 y.o. at Laurel for 2022, and both are 7F sprints.

Churchill Downs tomorrow 11/26/22 2 year old race day, Here is entrants from our Projected classic distance list
none of the 12 races are classic distance races, and every race has entrants bred for the distance of the races imo.
The entrants from our list are using their class to finish a head of these types and have a good race on the journey.
Race 3 : #2 Victory Information 9-5 , Race 5 : #7 Point Proven 5-1
race 6 : #5 Worthington 3-1,
race 8: #3 Tres Soles 6-1, #5 Hit Show 3-1, #10 Ten Days Later 8-1
Race 11: #1 Curly Jack 3-1, #9 Cyclone Mischief 8-1
Aqueduct race 5: (T) #10 General Jim 7-2
Determinedly looked like a beast in the 1st, flattered Arabian Night.....
Loved the battle-back spirit of Victory Formation, very impressive after such fast fractions
That was impressive the way he came back, I think the first 3 in this race deserve to be on the
list to stretch out and the front runners in this race could hit a wall or carry their speed a distance of ground
Victory Formation came back Like Silver Charm when he was young and the 3rd place finisher was coming
he deserves to be on a watch list imo.
I haven't had a chance to see the replay of race 5 and Point Proven's Win Pletcher and Repole are lucky to have this Gun Runner.
