Irad drew some lines across some of those races as well. Looks like two with jocks still TBD, Javier has no mount but has never done well in the KD a 3rd at best I believe. Trying to think what is out there, I don't know who may be injured, don't see Santana with a mount, Paco, G Saez, Victor, Calvin, just throwing out names who have ridden before... I would like to see Bechizza get a shot. Tawny Port and Early Voting currently without mounts
Meanwhile, Zandon is moving down my list a couple spots (3 to 5/6) while he is moving up on everyone elses
Oldbettowin said...I think sometimes you just have to draw a line thru a race. CC was coming off a new top and was on a short turnaround. He wasn’t really going that fast when he started backing up and probably would have won going away if he hadn’t stopped (see the final time). He’s faced pressure in races before. Maybe he didn’t like the track? Just didn’t feel like racing? The jock didn’t urge him on at all. They already had plenty of points so there was no reason to press the issue in case something was wrong and it certainly looked like something was wrong. Maybe the owners are now simply trying to boost his breeding resume but I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt for now.
I agree with this, I should have said I was being mildly sarcastic, too. I will never judge any horse on ONE race. They aren't machines. I actually added him back in
In how many Derbies?
On paper one is favorite and one could quit running in USA with foreign jock
Which at this point looks anyone can jump up on this thing.
Foreign Jock ?
He could stay in the gate, Cut off, bumped bolt, run wide, hit by a whip etc, jock dumped
