I thought that race and the Elate race were kind of non competitive. If either of those would of lost, you know there’s a problem. Oh well .

Los Al Derby - what is wrong with racing.
Garbage race - 4 freaking horses ow up?

GW proved nothing.
He still has to show he can beat a semi decent 3yos in a real race.
Not holding my breath on him.

Dollar Bill, part deux.

That’s the state of the game Tom. Those races yesterday were questionable. Even the Diana, they were lucky Chad had 3 really good runners to enter but when the “rabbit” went running how was Sistercharlie going to lose? Game Winner and Elate were public work outs to boot. Agreed on Game Winner

It was a good prep and he finished well, but I'm not sure it proved anything one way or the other about where he fits with the best 3yos.

awful, awful race, but interesting to watch to see if Game Winner flashed any 'brilliance'...

Game Winner -

Was an 'odd' race shape...

Just 'disregard' the early fractions of the leader (was it)Kingly? I forget ... That was not actually the pace, as no one took him seriously at any point (including his own jock, who was there 100% to set up GW, with no intent on winning unless something extremely random happened)...

Was already slow early IIRC, but you would shade the pace even softer,

because of that, the race shape didn't develop early, Game Winner looked uncomfortable early, and the race looked awkward early, The Doug O'Neill horse ran an improved race, but eventually Game Winner settled in and out-classed his overachieving rival.

Did not show any flashes of 'brilliance'. Didn't show anything particularly negative either.

Just a paid workout, as it appeared to be before the race. Hakell? or Travers? or what next?

Weird race and ran wide yet again. His final panel in 11.85 and the final 3/8 in a little less than 35.8 is pretty darn good, particularly after a modest layoff. He should be ready to go for a solid Travers performance.

Future BC odds on him? A sportsbook is finally opening up semi-close to me in August!

Obvious prep.
He did what he was supposed to do.
2yo Champion has never run a bad race.
He'll be double tough the rest of the year.
Grade 1 winner again soon enough.

It's almost August - he should be "prepped" by now!

I thought he ran well. He has never been a flashy horse, more of a grinder. He got a slight lifetime top from me. We don't add in ground loss so maybe he has run better, but it was also a slow paced raced which makes it tougher to get a good number. I think he'll run very well where ever he shows up next.

Twofold purpose:
Baffert needed a race to tighten the screws on him for the Travers.
A confidence builder could only help him.
