Monomoy Girl vs Swiss Skydiver   General Discussions

The Apple Blossom is going to be amazing.  

" Swiss Skydiver “absolutely” would return to Oaklawn for a showdown with champion Monomoy Girl in the $1 million, Grade 1 Apple Blossom Handicap for older fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles on April 17.

“We’re coming with a beast,” McPeek said (of swiss skydiver)




It was unbelievable that Swiss Skydiver went off just a couple ticks lower than that baffert horse in her last race. Better than even money was a gift.

This year's Apple Blossom is going to be exciting.

I posted under the Shirreffs topic, forgot I started the other one.  
It was a killer race. z

In winner's circle Letruska is very frisky, they had to take the flower blanket off her, she was having none of it.  She *dwarfed* her handler, that is one big mare. 

I am really not familiar with that trainer?  Speaks broken English, he dreamed this.   Very charming and humble. 

His horse was a champion in Mexico.

Let rusk was 6 for 6 3 yo champ Mexico.

He ran the mare at OP April 16 + 30 2020. In one op chain 50 + 75.

Irad makes the difference. NYRA guys I think in Derby also.

Have Pk 5 going used Irad.

Need 1,2,4,11.


Trainer Mexican goes track to track..

Got weight concession 118

WT, you tryin' to gaslight me?  The link you just gave me comes back to this thread. Haha!  Not only that, I clicked it 3 times.  I said, can't be, try it again...and again.

Letruska on the day.  Great stretch duel.   I think McPeek, who said earlier that he was bringing over a "beast" in Skydiver may have had her on the performance edge & she dropped off the wrong side during the race.  Maybe.

I know virtually nothing about Gutierrez but I did see that he's working the Florida circuit.

I'm always glad to see one of the hard working trainers who really need the purse $ score in a big race.   Good for him!
