Yes Summer Front: Miler , 8.5f  type on the Turf, Millionaire. Bred to a Mare that is strong up the middle

With Princequillo, War Admiral, La Troienne  all in a passing Position to give us Honour And Glory N/P

Hooked to a Nijinsky CS Chef Mare  to give Sires tilted towards Stamina and Conduit Mares tilted to Speed

With Foggy Note RF Rubiano and Relaunch ,might be better on turf.

Morello looked cooked from gate opener.  Thinking the connections might pass Derby on that run.

The colt looked like a lost Easter egg at his home court Big A.

ChiefsCrown said...

You are spot on about Morello, not a chance in the derby should he run.
 

Not sure I see a direct relationship between a prep race where a horse loses a shoe as well as gets hurt in the gate (but keeps running) necessarily means "cooked for the KY Derby".   

I call that a "durable" horse.  :)   

I did hear he will probably not go in Derby though and will be re routed.   Fine w/me.....Preakness, Derby, Belmont,  Travers, whatever.  I likes him.

It was your notification herewith about Morello issues; and now specifically Gate & Shoe that corrected the notion that Morello's poor showing in Wood was a matter of talent. 

Yet, now I take into account the colt's last racing experience, a bad one 

Thanks (d)

Slow Down Andy's scratched out of the derby with a fever. Charge It and Tawny Port are in. First of how many more scratch? Every year this happens.

Just saw that Andy is out. SDA was a colt I would not have left out 

But on the biased reservation that; about the turn into the Derby stretch his looking around (even with blinkers as in last)  and then being roused to get his attention would either be a significant good outcome for hitting the board or he'd just be watching his fellow Derby field pass him by. He is a positive scratch for ticket construction in my book. 

Add possibility of rain/slop and I'm all in.

Dry track and attention to elite jockey skills; "not what Dogs prays for. Less chance of home run tick-Key-to.  (d)

UAE Derby March 22 

Summer is Tomorrow was a long shot and racing against a Baff @ O'Neill runners and other for 100 40 etc points. 

1 3/16 miles place 2nd. 

Will look to see how colt traveled, how much time in US, works, jock a USer maybe. Or jock ships in with colt.

Vanity owner or hit the piñata for $1.8 mil and owner goes for overseas breeding and 25 year annuity.

Track Announcer says 'crappie time when they are Off as this one leads around and gets caught, but earns 2nd for 40 points getting him in the Derby.

Sire a grass specialist and couldn't get 9 fl..

_____

The UAE race was won @ 159.76

Compare Epicenter @ 154.38 Lou Derb

Summer is Tomorrow was 2 3/4 length behind in UAE

Zozos was 2 1/2 behind in Lou Derb

Owner had just a week to supplement @ $6K. 

I'm going with beat me and toss.

Bad news, I liked him......a bit odd to scratch already, as 3 weeks away could have a healthy colt with a couple of works under his belt.

You're right, every year we have these scratches, makes futures betting more of a gamble.  I'm rooting hard for In Due Time to come through and hit the board today, giving him enough points for the gate in 3 weeks.

Who knows, could be that 30 points will be enough
