Anytime I see Rahy(BG) in pedigree's it sours me for the upper echelon dirt races. That said, not sure if this group is upper echelon so it is possible. Even on turf, others a bit better, but not like dirt. Other than a couple direct BG 2nd bms, not much. I'll be using as small bottom filler, but that is it. Thought the 2-3 preak horses sat back as top two dueled on turn and exploited that, and finish not as good as it looked in the end.
Anyone know why many are saying FDB is one of best bred for 12f in the field? I hear some mention Union Rags, but to me that is one of those someone had to win situations after scratches. Got that GC there, That FF historically bottom half, don't see any cozzene predominant in any pedigrees.
Giant's Causeway as a bms is intriguing due to the presence of Pocahontas.
Anyone think that Pletcher might pull a Commissioner with Vino Rosso? Not sure if that'll work with him, as he seems pretty sluggish out of the gate.
Anyone here post or recall the names of 3 Belmont entries with Giants Causeway??
Dogs. Calm down lol. I don’t really remember the discussion but Restoring Hope’s sire is Giant’s Causeway, Free Drop Billy’s broodmare sire is GC, and Tenfold’s second dam’s sire was GC.
Smarty wasn't a P/P/P/P. I didn't list them before but x/x/Giants/x - Free Drop Billy; Giants/x/x/x - Restoring Hope; and x/x/x/x/Giants - Tenfold.
i have never heard of the jock on blended citizen, i hope he doesn't get lost out there
where is his colony? no mario for dougo?
He "fits the horse" as they say. Hopefully he doesn't get lost.
thanks, Calvin fit Mine that bird and he got lost!
Looked up Frey the other day. He started riding in 2010 at GG, only a few mounts. Looks like he moved his tack to Pennsylvania, riding PRX & PEN & had his best year, winning the eclipse for top apprentice. He bounces around east to west. I suppose he's been staying west lately.
Things changed after he lost his bug. Journeyman to this day.
He did get a tour of part of the Belmont main in the Pan & rode well.
Jocks get lost on the backstretch & then misjudge the turn for home, is how it usually happens. By the time you hit the middle of the backstretch you still have to ride another 6 furlongs.
Or, misread the poles.
