Yes the cream of the crop is slowly moving to the top.
I agree the Filly Hoosier Philly was the best of the 2 year olds racing this last Week
She wins the Golden Rod g2 8.5 f dirt by 5 lengths geared down in the lane in the time 1.43.94
Same distance Instant Coffee wins the Jockey club g2 in the time 1.45.25
Beyer awards him an 82, and awards Hoosier Philly a 81 ,same track ,1/2 hour apart, go figure, geared down
her time is 6 lengths faster, good cappers see this and ask will they run Her In the Derby.
The hype is started.
Pool 2 Future bets looks like the Filly Hoosier Philly effected the wagers,
shows all 2 YO Fillys 29-1. Instant Coffee 35-1, 2 YO fillys have the 7th lowest odds because of one Filly imo.
He looks like a elite Sprinter type IMO I need to see a couple more races.
Is that the same way you feel about Speed Boat Beach? Baffert took him to the turf after his big dirt debut, then went to the BC Juvy Turf Sprint. He is a very fast horse, I am curious as to why Baffert took the path with him that he did. I want to see him back on the dirt. Bayern, out of a PioneeroftheNile mare? Not bad!
If you mean do I think Speed Boat Beach needs to show more to carry his speed a distance of ground and
Baffert's intent with him yes, Plenty of time to see if Baffert stretches him on dirt furlong by furlong with that
gate speed to do like others he had with gate speed to use in a prep to be a rabbit to hold on and win
or wear out other speed to help a team mate and with Baffert he goes with the plan he thinks is best at the moment,
usually with at least 2 from his stable hopefully with a plan that either can win, I hate to say it, he is outstanding doing that.
My theory is that Baffert's quick works for 2 yr. olds replace races.....so that they are far more ready for their first race than others. He also sees how they compete vs. each other, tells the stable/world, and the battered down prices result
I was very impressed with Spun Intended.He put that race to bed quickly
