does anyone think the 2 yr. old races this year is more of a level playing field
Than older graded races are? That the 3 yr old races next year will be cleaner run than
this year..

With Clement some of his 2's will run good early on slop, that turn out to be turfers.

This would be cool if it turns out to be Clement on the Derby trail. Don't you think that would be cool ?

Did you watch the race with Love and Money? She will not be restrained early! Sometimes I wonder if at distances like a mile and under, it doesn’t make sense to just give the horse its head. They probably use up as much energy fighting the jock, as she would winging it. At least with the latter, they would build up a huge lead, perhaps cause the trailers to make an early move. They probably will end up sprinting her. Six furlongs might be her max.

Chad debuted a good one today at SAR in Jack Christopher....but, for the life of me, I can't understand why Ortiz continued to whip him mid-stretch with a 7 length lead?!?

Yes , what happens next time, nobody knows how that effects the horse

and Ortiz does that to much. Trainer and Owner should hold a meeting with him.

That's a sprinters pedigree imo. 8.5f type

I saw that race. She was very professional. Tomorrow, her close relative, Ready For The Lady, out of a daughter of Ready Lady's dam(Lady Shakespeare), debuts in race 5 at Woodbine for the same connections. He has not been working quite as impressively as the filly, but works aren't everything, right?

At any rate, MTR continues to do very well with his first time starters! The old guy has still got it!
