Still find it hard to believe that Cave Rock's 2nd race scores a lower number than the first, especially with the competition in the second. But I suppose coming up with those numbers are above my pay grade :)
As DM is the only track I visit in person each year, and having seen the races of the top colts listed, my eyes tell me they are special, and definitely worth following. I'll be very interested in who races at Santa Anita American Pharoah Stakes on Oct. 8th.....

I'm expecting Echo Again to run huge and be the favorite for the BC Juvy.....
Its only September we have a long way to go, when a 2 yr old starts stretching out ,I look for speed numbers
to compare to their sprints , most two turn types speed numbers stretching out equal or are better than there sprint numbers
of course there are exceptions to that and by the time March rolls around we will have a better idea. Its something
I look at and note for all 2 yr olds I'm Interested in. Its easy to look at and doesn't take much time,.
I don't know if he is that good yet, Many good looking prospects this early, I am a big Gun Runner fan,
Damon's Mound is another good looking prospect in this race I like a lot. Beta Bob in his 2 year old talk
this week mentioned him at the top of 2 yr olds owned by somebody else that look real good.
I see some gurus pick #6 Jaces Road , Quality Road/Silver Deputy : Geroux/ Cox as the value of the Single digit
horse's , 6-1, L don't know where they got that number from..

Four 2 year olds on the list are Racing Today.
Churchill Downs Race 3 :ALLOWANCE OPTIONAL CLAIMING $100,000, 7F Dirt, 2 year olds, 2 from our list
#2 Judo 2-1 ML favorite , #5 XY Point 5-2, Field of 6
Edit Judo 2nd, XYPoint 3rd finished 9 1/4 behind the runaway Winner Frosted Departure(well Named) 7fr in 1.22.67
put Frosted Departure on your watch list. Frosted/ More Than Ready nick.
Edit Signator finished second and closed nicely after being bumped hard at the start
Unknown Agenda backed Up from dirt being thrown in his face.
Belomont At The Big A::MSW 6f Dirt race 1: #3 Unknown Agenda 9-5, , #4 Signator 4-1 , 1.7 mil
Both firsters High pricers watch to see how they do sprinting, but are Projected Classic Distance types.
I liked Signator's stretch run as he closed on the winner.....could be a good one stretching out
That's Shug's 1.7 mil Colt ,who was bumped hard coming out of the gate and the field got an Handicap lead
over him. imo .He had some good splits that suggest he was the best in this 6f start.
