It's not all bad.

Eight Rings won for the first time in over 2 years on the undercard, perhaps doing just enough to enter the BC Classic picture and getting the opportunity to float Essential...

Not sure it was necessary, because son's of Kitten's Joy (Tripoli) ought not to be scary on dirt, but was that Azul Coast doing the patented floating wide block move into the first turn that always...

Mildly interested in Olympiad out of either race, but I wouldn't be shocked if he fails to stay in one piece.

He's beaten Caddo River so he's already well on his way to being a stallion prospect.

If this horse continues on there's going to be a lot more claiming of first time starters with sparse workout patterns in the maiden claiming $10K ranks.

Apparently that's the winning profile if you...

Has a stride similar to his grandsire A.P. Indy but without the turn acceleration. Not sure if it was supposed to be a cakewalk for him, but he did have to reel in a loose-on-the-lead colt that had...

Lugamo was not coming out of sprints (but yes, he's sprinted before).

The pace was slow or at least slower than $7K platers earlier on the card. Weyburn could have conceivably set the pace if he...

The ride was horrendous; whoever that was took a page out of Kent Desormeaux's book.

The horse's main weapon is his speed (and his ability to carry it over a distance). That genius throttled the...

Don't know if it's because the connections wisened up or the horse is injured or the recent Parx barn raids, but this can only be counted as a blessing.

Wasn't sure how long they were going to lean...

Midnight Bourbon is out.

Asmussen says since there are no "big races" after the Belmont until the Jim Dandy and Haskell, he probably won't reappear until then.

Supposedly Flavien Prat is taking the mount on Hot Rod Charlie over Preakness winner Rombauer...at least, according to Doug O'Neill.

I'm a bit surprised at that. Interestingly, both horses have had...

I realize the horse comes first but it would have been a nice story if Mandaloun were to win the Preakness for Juddmonte Farms.

An Irish Derby winner that finished 2nd to Enable last year that's used to carrying 130+ pounds.

I'm not particularly worried about his value; I'm worried about his longevity because he appears to have talent.

To your point, I don't think it would have done anything more for his "value" that...
