And then there's Sleepy Eyes Todd.
The 5yo horse cost a whopping 9k,is a Grade 2 winner(little bit of breeding in the future).........and picked up a million bucks for yesterday's effort.
His updated lifetime earnings:
$1,889,825.
I'll guess he pads his bankroll @ the WC in Dubai 5 weeks from now.
Not too shabby for the small time connections.

Has won all over the place too, really cool horse, one of my favorites in training. He's won twice here at Remington, twice at Canterbury, and also Charles Town, Fonner, Gulfstream, and Keeneland.

I've always been a fan of horses like Lost Code and Proper Reality who win a bunch of races at the minor tracks. Sometimes they turn out to be pretty good, in the same way that sometimes a football draft choice from a small college makes the jump to the NFL.

Sleepy Eyes Todd is, indeed, a fun horse.

IMO, that's the right move.

I don't mean this to be insulting to a very good horse, but when he's in the game early or he's forced to make a big move into contention, run against the grain of the track, gets off a little bad etc. he doesn't have the reserves to finish well against top horses. At this stage he's the functional equivalent of a cheap speed horse that can run big if he gets a loose lead in a weak field or a bias in his favor but wilts under pressure. The way you win with a horse like that is to drop him in class so he'll get a softer trip and be up against weaker horses.

I'm fairly sure what they are trying to do is finally get a Grade 1 win out of him, but imo they should be searching for softer Grade 1s outside of NY and also not running in these elite Grade 1s he often finds himself in. They should target races like the Clark or some of the CA Grade 1s that have been weak in recent years and run late.

If it's just about the purse money in these super big races, take him back and make a late run like he did in the BC Classic and try to get 3rd or 4th and pray the race just happens to collapse.

The Swiss Skydiver of the male gender in 2020!

(Although it's hard for Swissie to top the win at Fonner in the Bossellman Pump & Pantry/Gus Fonner Stakes!!!!!!)

I still think the Big Ass Fans Breeders' Cup race is the biggest prize in the sport.

he's the . 5-1 morning line.

At a glance the and maybe will take some money, but who knows could take some fan money if word gets out.

Has some decent works from the end of 2020 on video, and good recent works (seeing on paper times) since April or so.

Good size, high knee action... Looked decent. Fun to see how he does

His long awaited return to the races!!!!

He's up against Knicks Go. Seems like a very tough assignment. (Of course, Tacitus is the kind of horse who can make any assignment tough. )

I remember reading he had a minor injury. That's probably why he's coming back so late in the year. He started working regularly in July and early August but then it seems he skipped a month before working twice.

Tacitus now one of the 'other' horses in a paid workout race. About time to hang it up?
