Thanks for finding that, Maybe another Giacomo in the futures only very strong up the
middle. I bet he's on many under the Radar list. How could they miss him for so long ?
He is 15-1 in the first futures pool.No Baffert horses listed
100-1 a few days ago in Las Vegas, he was well under the radar until this pool came out
Suggest Behind the scenes they are talking about him a lot. If your a future player
William Hills the place to look for Gamblers if you like him. 15-1 is N/A this time of year.
With Romans as the trainer,he will be given every possible opportunity to secure a spot in the starting gate
Took a look at the KY Derby Futures lists. For both horses, fillies and sires.
Classic Empire not listed in the future sires list.
Nor are the Classic Empire progeny I like listed in the derby futures.
Strange. That they didn't include.
Classic Empire was nursing a bad foot since before the ARKIE Derby. And was kept out of the Belmont due to that foot problem, so Casse could never race him at the level he wanted to. That was a gorgeous pedigree and I wish he had not been nursing that bad abcessed foot since he never got to show his true abilities.
anyway, I love him as a sire, and I like his colt, Classic Moment. Plenty enough classicity w/Fappiano-Unbridled-Empire Maker-PON on sire side; then tons of speed on the mare's side. Then, plenty of HOYs in this guy's pedigree as well as Broodmare of the Year Leslie's Lady. 23b family
Interestingly, Classic Empire did well in KY (Churchill and Keenland) exactly where Classic Moment is doing well. He may end up being too sprinty, guess we'll see. .
Message 354 is our Kentucky Derby to stretch out list and waiting in the Wings
