Hidden Stash posted a higher bris at 1 1/16 vs 1 1/8 this year. FYI we have discussed this in the past that when that happens they typically do not hit the trifecta.

Yup, remember the year we started that experiment together. Who else?

What did you think about my new theory about checking sprinting speed as youngsters?   Seems like that would clue in to something, but not really sure.  LOL  Yes, they have moved on to routing......but what if they have to squeeze that last bit o' speed out at the very end?  Would not high speed sprinting abilitiy help there?

I took a quick peek and only found the one ( Hidden Stash) for now. I will try to take another look in a bit. The thing is we said as a 3 year old according to my notes and can’t remember if a shorter distance counts like the Gotham or if it needs to be 1 1/16. (Whats the dif right?) I will be using Bris. I’m in the middle of moving this week two hours away to retire in northern Wisconsin (Northof64) so I have scatter brains and limited time. Trying to check in when I take a breather. Great analogy  on sprinting and Zenyata was a perfect  example!!

Ok please feel free to double check an correct if needed. Others are Mandaloun, Get her number, Hozier, Caddo River( but at a mile), the following two posted the same figure at 1 1/8 and a shorter distance this year. Soup and Sandwich and Highly Motivated. For the sake of splitting hairs I guess those last two are technically ok. Gotta go!!

A wonderful state.  My entire family (except me and 1 brother) lives there. I love Wisconsin when I visit. 
Moving is very all-consuming and I can see how that would impact your abilty to pore over PPs.  
I will have another look as well, North.

Hot Rod Charlie ran better at 1-1/16th...in the BC Juvie but that was a while ago.  Then he ran 93 @1-1/16th then a 96 at 9.5F in LA Derby but was bumped at start.   

This is why Hot Rod has been hard to figure for me but he will NOT be in my exacta for sure.  Either will anyone from the ARK Derby. 

I agree that HM and S&S are okay

Hot Rod Charlie is a half brother to Mitole as well, so I'm a bit suspect of his proclivity for 10F.

Congratulation!  Retirement is wonderful as is your choice of a retirement site.

Another topic...Hozier sits at 21, Baffert might enter him if there be a defection.
