Thanks, race 2 at Del Mar number one has a MTR BMSire Sumter Mandella trained
Suppose to be pointed for Routes, facing Bafferts 3.. that has me curious for a good trip.
The #2 disappointed big time. Baffert's horse looked very impressive.
Yes, Murray looked great......as did a $67 BB daily double! I am surprised that SF Racing is sticking with Baffert, but I suppose that if they get a Derby contender, they can always switch barns?
“Cheap speed” indeed! It’s bad enough if they are only able to win 5.5f sprints. What’s worse is when they are only able to lead early in this fields, then fold like a cheap tent! MTR sent out two such horses at short prices in Labarde and Drink the Wind. Pretty embarrassing to get all that pre-race hype, then finish so poorly. Looked like quarter horses out there!
Historical Beyer numbers for Derby winners is 92 beyer or higher for 2 yr olds.
saying that it's not at 5.5 f or less and normally this early in the year.
Here is the Beyer Leader Board for 2 yr olds thru 7/27/21
no body has qualified yet for that angle Wit was close at 90.
Murray @ 5.5f has a 78 for those excited for his race, but firsters can improve
leaps and bounds next race like any 2 yr old.

Control, a Philly no less, has great stats for 1st time starter winnerS' on the mare side. Unlike scoping the stallion numbers for firsters.
She hit the gate in maiden win, ran on every path possible against substantial early fractions and was taken in hand to the wire.
To me she has 8.5 - 9 fl potential and we might just see her come Breeders Cup day.
RACE #4 .. #1 Saddle cloth
Interesting, Very Interesting pedigree. She can be almost anything.
Di 1.55, cd .43 Stamina Sires , with high speed cmp gives her balance
of speed and stamina, Good tf families in 5 generations, the foundation Mares
