I am not picking him for the Gotham, just was one I was thinking about betting in the last Future pool, just as another pedigree pick.  Has the API bms with the tf 1-x fix.  Not fond of the DM MrP in between those two.

Not much to like him in here, wide, Davis opts for another and Flo on another Cox.  I've never noticed Cox running much at AQ but have to think the ones there are the lesser of his.  If he wins or does well, that 93-1 is gone, if he doesn't do well, probably won't make the field.

I understand the ye old Future exacta fill in with a price 5 months out, love those 1 xers though.

DM throws foundation, balance and looks though.

Bad posts for the most likely.

Missed the race. Going to watch it now. It seems he has matured some. I wonder if Pletcher will give him a chance on the dirt again, to see exactly what he’s got!

Wintertrian said...

Maybe an off the radar horse like the Uncle Mo's  Scoobie Quando  with all that nice German and Irish blood on the female side will make it to one of the big races....... more of a turfer now running on synth.  BMS is full brother to Galileo(IRE) and half-brother to Sea The Stars.  Too late to the party for the KY Derby though. 

 


You heard it first here  (LOL)  but anyway, he ran 2nd to that big longshot in the Battaglia Prep at Turfway 3/4/2023. 

Hopefully he moves ahead off here.

the 2nd coming of Animal Kingdom was blocked for awhile, earned 8 Derby Points

Derby Winner Jock Sonny Leone was on the Longshot winner and very good splits and time

for the AW at Turfway.

What did you think of that troubled trip, the tvg  announcers Thought it was a lot better than the expected

Beyers numbers 96 , I was expecting triple digits. Equibase  109 isn't to shabby for them and makes sense to me.

Emmanuel Pedigree imo does tilt more to Turf than dirt.

Did anyone notice what the 4 derby prep winners have in Common,

Forte,  Practical Move, Raise Cain, Congruent all 4 are Lasix free in their races.

Suggest to me they are not bleeders, raced against some Lasix Runners that need lasix to

get their best race speed numbers , suggest keep an eye for those types , and non Lasix

users should recover faster between races.

Like I said about the Gotham, there goes that 93-1 I wanted to bet in the last future.  He normally is up close to the lead, spotted that 7L early in the race 1/4 & 1/2.  Everyone will notice him now with that bad start and wide close.  Still has to step it up in his next to get points.   I'll have to route against now, will hate that if only...   Especially the exacta some which had 5 figs.

Still have to think Gotham runners not fairing well in KD so wondering if he is anything, why here and why no one wanted to ride.

Edit, I went and checked the splits equibase did not have the 6f split but I saw on the replay it was 71.39.   LQ TT 26+ Total for the 1T 8f was 98.09 which is not great so not expecting much from these unless they improve.  Without the slow start SM may have put in a good time.  It was listed muddy and sealed track so that could have an effect.

Thanks all good points, the jock said he came out slow and was surprised  and decided  since he missed the break

to go slow at first and since he was wide stay there and make a run at the finish and the best part of the track

down the stretch was wide where he kept him and made his run, thus recovered and got 2nd place

Thanks for that 6f time, The jock did note he is a forward placing type and he didn't say it ,we both know

 he's an eyeball to eyeball type and seems not to get intimidated. 

fast track and different track is what I would like to see. His Bottom pedigree can be bred to almost any Sire imo.
