And California Angel takes it!  $37.40

( am always ecstatic when Bejarano wins stuff) 

I thought Ontheonesandtwos ran pretty well too....maybe needs shorter. 

You "x-ed" them pretty well smartyslew.

Thanks, I had the 2-3 best pedigrees for stretching out, 14 elite miler and led then

I couldn't believe how good that California Chrome turf pedigree scored a perfect match

keep him off the dirt. Look for some of those others in here when they stretch out

This was a good prep for the field. 




Despite spinning wide into the stretch, I thought Dressed would run by them, but she hung late.

Here is a tidbit from 5 years ago betting Turf horses 2 yr olds and up

Turf pedigrees to look for key positions in 5 generations charts for an advantage IMO.

from one page from the haun book
"  i was already aware of the superiority of the stamina elements in the european horses
because of the way they were raced with undulating tracks and longer distances. speed was
prized in america but staying power for classic distances was cherished over the pond.
the darley X combined speed with distance and stride and produced some amazing runners.
sea the stars,sadlers wells,high chaparral,troy,galileo,goldikova,duke of marmalade, frankel,cape blanco
cape cross,pivotal,rock of gibraltar, to name just a few.
sadlers wells passed the darley x with a heart score of 157, as we were able to determine through
his daighters. this is the same great heart as expressed by kingmambo and the reason the cross between the
two lines worked so well . it didn't matter which was on which x.  sadlers wells passed the great northern dancers y line
with the darley line on his  x chromosome.if kingmambo was on top , he passed the mr p speed with the great heart of 
miesque on his x. either cross produced great speed on the y and great heart on the x, not to mention 
the five lumbar vertebra skeleton with its extraordinary stride..
lately,  in european auctions, the female offspring of galileo and cape cross have been getting high prices
these two sires,along with several other prominent european sires are passing the darley x, with its 
combination of stride, speed and heart. galileo through his broodmare sire, miswaki,passes the same
princequillo x found in secretariat.
ironically, miswakis dam hopespringseternal was purchased as a yearling by penny chenery, who named her.
penny bought her because she was  a daughter of buckpasser, but her greatest x which she expressed
and gave to her sons, galileo and sea the stars, was princequillo the sire of her second dam . urban sea and her two sons all won the arc de triomphe, a test of stamina..

This surprised me on the Equibase speed leaderboard for 2 year olds

More Than Ready's top 2 yr old speed number (males) is Paratus 93, didn't hit the

ITM board in his only race, suggest checking that race out, Slipstream 92 is next highest.
suggest 's  his fillies have higher numbers.
