So Rosario (or Ron Anderson) tried to wait for the other shoe to drop (out of the stirrup as it were) before deciding between Concert Tour and Hot Rod Charlie and ended up getting passed over.

And then Sadler thinking himself the genius (even though he has no Triple Crown success whatsoever) decides he should change jockeys on his well-backed horse and the shoe ends up on the other foot (and out of the stirrup)...

Well, if they can't keep their feet in the stirrups they can always open mouth and insert...

When is a good time to talk about Baffert winning the Derby with a son of Protonico?

What's the knock on Protonico or Medina Spirit's pedigree in general? Went over it with Sid Fernando Wednesday.

I donít recall knocking Protonico. But itís quite a feat to win the Derby with a horse whose sire has less than 5 total winners.

My comment has more to do with Baffert than the horse. Hopefully I didnít hurt Protonicoís feelings.
