Tacitus moving on to the Dubai World Cup for some reason despite Mott's forlorn comments about his performance (high strung in the paddock, faded badly, not what he wanted to see).

I wonder if...

That wasn't the point of moving the JCGC in my opinion. They are trying to preserve its graded stakes status by basically swapping the names. The JCGC was in a more tenuous position than the...

Seem like a wise preservation move for the JCGC; last year's field was approaching Big Cap status.

This move should reinvigorate the race with most trainers adhering to the silly "I need 6-8 weeks...

Also-ran Hodges Bay won the $1 million Canadian International a couple of years earlier, so that was a drop off for him. Only time he started for a tag and then switched over to hurdles the rest of...

Bezos looked horrendous down the lane (about as bad as Nashville in the Malibu); failed to switch leads and struggled to keep in stride.

He was nearly raady to run in the summer working up to 5...

No surprise those horses are doing well elsewhere. The field from top to bottom in the Malibu was full of talented individuals. I think all but Express Train and Collusion Illusion had triple digit...

I look at it as he was a first time starter that took some early heat and survived without getting visually tired down the lane. I suppose it depends on how strong the pace was (I'll leave that to...

Was climbing early then the rider checked briefly on far turn when he almost ran up the heels of the tiring 6-horse. Got a good setup with contested pace up front.

That horse gets a headline on the Paulick Report every time he walks out of his stall. I think there's been 3 articles about him gearing up at Oaklawn already.

Jolypha was a full sister to Dancing Brave. Maybe they should have run him in the Classic in '86.

There's no doubt Princess Noor had that visually spectacular "push button" turn-of-foot on the turn that gets the pulse racing.

However, at no point did she ever show she could sustain such a...
