I was hoping Belmont had some sort of Withers substitute for that horse.

Back to Olympiad, might be tough for him to get a Grade 1 if he doesn't take his shots now at CD and Belmont. The Alysheba...

Thanks.

I know it is wishful thinking getting to see Olympiad in the Met Mile.

Was really hoping for a match up with Pappacap after that one wins the Pat Day Mile.

And 13 days later Churchill will be running the $500K Alysheba. Shoulda carded the Ben Ali for the 1st week of Keeneland.

Yeah, I guess it's too much to anticipate the horse could make both races with only 3 weeks in-between. Too traditional I suppose.

It's hilarious, I was reading an old Sports Illustrated article...

Thanks; Aloha West is nominated to the Count Fleet too and has some sharp recent works. Hopefully the big purse ($500k) keeps them both in there.

Most likely, but if he tries the Oaklawn Handicap first ($1 million purse) and gets beat perhaps they will consider cutting him back.

Plus, considering his sire and his previous long layoff, his...

Nice to see the Lafayette back as a straight 3yo race in the spring after only a couple of renewals in the fall during BC meetings (open to older horses) in the past decade.

I'm hoping for Christmas in June if Olympiad comes back in either the Oaklawn Handicap or Alysheba and bombs.

Then he can come back in the Met Mile at a square price.

Unfortunately, it will...

Well, kudos to them for keeping him sound (and hyped) enough to get past the Eclipse Awards and secure 3rd in the voting for champion sprinter for his 2021 non-campaign.

Nice; 1:47 flat. Dr. Carter bobbled a bit at the break, then got left in the dust when he failed to get through on the inside with that early move and still came with a run.

Thanks, I know the Flamingo was an important race but never really figured out how it fit into the calendar (plus it had its own preps like the Bahamas and Everglades).

A little bit before my time.
