I wonder if Shug McGaughey will have a rethink with Code of Honor.

At any rate, in 1985 the 1-2 finishers Spend A Buck (Jersey Derby) and the ill-fated Stephan's Odyssey (Peter Pan) opted out of the...

He was fairly sharp from the gate in all 3 FG starts although he stumbled slightly in the Lecomte and lost his hind end after a handful of strides in the Louisiana Derby.

Long Range Toddy (twice) and Omaha Beach both outfooted him early in his Oaklawn starts. Vekoma, Spinoff, War of Will, and Maximum Security have all displayed front-running speed. Arguably even Tax...

Thought that might be one of the reasons but he's always been a forward work horse so not sure its particularly solid evidence of a change in tactics.

She's been suspect throughout her career.

The two best horses she ever beat when winning were New Money Honey and Holy Helena (in the Alabama) and those were turf horses.

Other than that her claim...

The SA Derby was faster than the SA Handicap because it was a furlong shorter.

Vino Rosso is unbeaten in races less than 8.5f furlongs. Routers in general excel in these extended sprints, probably due to superior stamina and the likelihood of a fast, contested pace. Note how...

Yep, McKinzie is a perfect example. If he gets collared at short odds in the Big Cap, he might be an enticing price in the Met Mile.

You can't fault him for caving late after that ridiculous pace at Sunland (and he did battle back far a brief spell at the top of the lane). He settled well when stalking the pacesetter in the...

Gladiator King displayed his sprint prowess amid his muddled and butchered form, underscoring the tall order Hidden Scroll had in dueling with him in the FOY.

Kingly seemed almost like a "throwaway" entry to begin with; he ran less than 2 weeks ago and was well beaten as the favorite.

Perhaps Baffert was simply making use of shipping space while at the...
