It seems to me that Chad Brown favors his Frankel filly, McKulkin, over the MTR filly Consumer Spending. Even in their mutual debut, it seemed CS was compromised to make sure the favored filly had things all to herself. Today CS won easily in the Selima at Laurel. She is way too good to have even been in that race, as opposed to one of the higher regarded filly turf races.

I thought she had no  chance 3/4 of the way through the race. She looked to be in trouble. The last 1/16 you referred to, was pretty much the only running she did.  Consumer Spending has yet to show her best. MTR will have a great shot at another BC Juvy Filly Turf win with her and Koala Princess.

I picked the wrong speed horse Gunite I thought had a fitness edge over Jack Christopher
and I picked him over the best bred one turn entrant with one only race who showed
great speed in it. 7f might be Gunite's wall or he bounced. Jack Christopher won, 
Command Performance got up for 2nd and Wit 3rd.

Nice juvy races this weekend. I am so disappointed that Danny Gargan’s MTR colt James Aloysius, developed shin problems after his close debut loss to Portfolio Company. Gargan had said he hadn’t even had him tight for that debut. I hope JA can come back as a three year old 100%
 

Oh, and Echo Zulu is a beast. No two ways about it.

MTR could have a couple more opportunities to send a couple additional starters to the Breeder's Cup this coming weekend. 1
) Cox may enter Bubble Rock in the Matron, 2) Casse may send On Thin Ice to the Bourbon. 3) I am curious to see what Delacour will do with Koala Princess, and 4)  Catalano with Dressed.
