I just watched the race and was kind of impressed. He never looked like a winner down the backstretch, while being wide the entire way. Then there was that failed attempt to get inside by Smith at the top of the lane. In the end he ended up just missing on track that he supposedly doesn't like and to a stablemate that had a perfect inside uncontested trip.

I like the horse and this performance definitely doesn't get me off the bandwagon, if anything makes me excited to see him run again.

He is still a great horse but he most likely has peaked. He still can win the BC but way too much hype early on.
