besides aforementioned noble indy, another possible is Bandua.
kinda sounds like he will come over, so.....
Bandua don't over look him, his trainer won the Belmont stakes in 1990 with Go and Go.
mark him with trainers that won the belmont.
he's coming over here, that tells me he has something special.
He was supposed to go to the Irish Derby.
What do you guys think about a turfer running on deep sandy?
The Belmont was Go and Go’s first race on dirt.
Can you do his number of non-Pharlaris lines? :) thought it was a neat angle :)
2 races. Both at 10 f., first one in April in a field of 4 horses, run in heavy going, won by 9 1/2 L. & took 2:42.7 to complete. That must have been a true bog to take that long (rated :40.7 slow to standard) Toting 131 lbs.
In May, 4 horse field, 10 f., Bandua won again in soft to heavy going in 2:26.49. Toting 136 lbs.
This horse is all bottom. Dropping 10 pounds & running on primarily sand with a clay/silt mixture & considering his breeding, he should be skipping over it. Whether or not he can handle the pace elements is another story. Very inexperienced, as well.
He will be a big price.
Owned by Calumet. I figure they'll latch him onto Justify for as long as he can sustain the pace.
