They should call it the Jeff Ruby Steaks Stakes.
Just finished my taxes, the usual 5 hour ordeal. Beat that Dogs.
Hot Rod Charlie .
Doug O'Neill older bro Denniss goes to auction buys recent KDY winners Nyquist & I'll Have Another. Know how to get There. Same team of stable crew underneath. They rent a house and live together/team prior Derby.
Two prior winners with Raddam owner.
HRC owner blood relative of O'Neill bros. Owners in winner circle always seem overwhelmed that they have such a great colt.
He definitely looks the part. Long and lean, not like a sprinter.
In the last decade O'Neill clan has 2 Derbys. They score, they hedge up on list of consistency winners like a Baffert that is a frequent visitor with the Gov after Dby win.
Baff recipe is owners send him horses.
O'Neill bros find them at auction

Jockey is not going to get a tip for serving up a tiring colt Soup + Sanwich in the Florida Derby.
Not on my menu for win. Derby too long to stay fresh, tasty and appealing at KDy distance.
Colt runs early to be in race.
Hold the Mayo.
Well he’s not from Kentucky so his soup probably isn’t burgoo.
Is he a NY bred? If so maybe Manhattan Clam Chowder?...maybe?
