Justify colt ran well in the MSW at CD yesterday. Roy H’s full brother was disappointing! The two highly touted MTR’s; Don Corleone and Devils Red, have run poorly in their debuts. Hopefully they’ll do better next time out.
Devils Red the chart said he was playing bumper cars and I couldn't find, the Video wasn't very good.
I saw that. Don’t know if that could explain his listless performance. Hope he gets another shot on the dirt!
Blazing Sevens looked great, could have won by more......handled the slop just fine, won the race his father placed in. Had a feeling about him, liked how he was training, hit the exacta too. Will be one of the faves in the Juvy....
Watch the race over.....Champions Dream was hit hard at break by Blazing, and the same horse moved out on him in the stretch, completely taking away his momentum. Franco did a great job of slowing him down at that point, finishing without pushing him. The liner notes may not display the trouble, but I would look for him to come back at a price in a month or so.
