I like him. Can win on dirt, can win on turf. (Works well on both but was trained on turf).
Always a good sign esp. in a horse so young.
Also like this trainer's 4 year old filly, Ice Princess for routes. IMHO was much the best last out, despite trouble....winner barely got by her.
I don't blame you, James looked good and has one of the best pedigrees in the 2 yr old
group this year, male or female imo.
Field of ten and I liked the way he did it considering he was 3 wide and 4 wide
last Q 24.69 , he will have to step up against some of the gr one's and I think he's ready
for the challenge. his final time was better than it looked. imo
Message 256 this thread has the 2 turn prospects for the BC and fall racing.
listed A Thru Z for both Males and Fillys easy to find to help with the weekend past performance
and its as far as I got posting tid bits on the individual horse.
Its set up to use for your own due diligence if interested.

The last two years Godolphin sent a 2yo to KEE for the Breeders Futurity tracing back to 1-x which I really liked and played. I don't see any Godolphin in this years race. I did see this one is another of those Godolphim 1-x but not running at KEE. I have not checked the peds of all the horses in the Futurity, so not sure who may be a good ped play. Right now, I am leaning toward Steve McQueen in The I might have some time to to check all the peds further, just looked at PPs so far.

Yay! As you all know I'm following the Classic Empires this year.
Another one of my Classic Empire's won R4 at Keen today @ 24-1 (M/L was 15-1)
Sport Pepper ......under the wonderful ET Baird (one of oldest jockeys in the biz)
Love the whole pedigree since I'm also a First Samurai fan.
( CLASSIC EMPIRE - LE MI GEAUX, BY FIRST SAMURAI )
He was on my list here:
Will be adding more to that list, it's just that there were SO MANY that I haven't covered them all yet or put into my virtual stable. This one had only run at AR on all weather track, now wins on dirt. I thought he was a cull, and doubt he will make KY Derby gate but was certainly worth following ..... at a price.
