She says that's the plan. Then on to Saratoga to win the Personal Ensign on Travers Day.

Let's talk some racing.

Have any sure things next weekend even before the posts are drawn? I have one in mind, and no, it's not that Conquest Mo Money doesn't win another race in 2017, although I feel as confident about that as I do Catch a Glimpse's best races are far behind her.

That's almost as funny as you eating at Jims. Place doesn't even come close to top 5 in the city. Used to like it, but now it's as big a tourist trap as Pat's & Geno's.

My brother opened a bar in the Port Richmond section of the city late last year. Their claim to fame is the "Witorwitowski" which is a keilbasa cheesesteak. Now THAT'S a ****in sammich, brotha. It's a shame you hold that false stigma for this partially beautiful city. I will stamp a GUARANTEE that if you came down and stayed for a weekend that I would forever change your mind about Philly. Try me!
Indeed!

Not sure Mor Spirit should be favored of Sharp Azteca who has shown in tougher races to be a real racehorse, those Grade 3 wins for Mor Spirit are ok but this is a giant stepup

I wonder if Chad is sneaky live in the back five of the Mega-Card ?
He does have a habit of popping with price horses on big days.
Woody Stephens: LHB{5-1} Looked classy as can be in the last 1/8th of the Bay Shore.........LHB & The Money Monster look good.
Just a Game: Antonoe{8-1} The definition of a sneak play,it's all about her Euro form.
In three of her losses a Group 1 winner won the race,including the undefeated(8 for 8 now retired) La Cressonniere.
Antonoe also beat future double Group 1 winning Qemah when she broke her maiden by 6+ lengths.
Met Mile: Economic Model{15-1} CB rarely makes equipment changes,but the hood comes off Saturday(EM was 0 for 4 in blinkers).
Manhattan: Time Test{5-1} Wants firm ground..........badly,was competitive with horses in Europe that are half a pole better than these.
Belmont: Twisted Tom{20-1} Runs on anything,has won on Grass/Mud/Inner/Fast.
Undefeated in blinkers............the longer the better.

Sounds like the Japanese horse will be out due to a leg issue

The Woodford Reserve --- where Chad Brown has 3 going in a turf race and odds are against for even one of them to hit the exacta. Can't imagine seeing that too often!

Songbird hasn't run around one-turn since her 2yo campaign and never a one-turn route. Clutching at straws....

If someone could tell me how Rally Cry is 3rd choice in a Grade 1, i would sincerely appreciate it. Seems to be zero respect for those who ran in the Churchill sprint on derby day. None the less, i think this race falls apart up front and i'm fading Mor Spirit b/c i think his one and only tactic is to hope Sharp Azteca comes back to him, even so, i believe the closers will be getting into the action around that time.
