I'm just glad to finally have hope once again for a TCW. Its been a long 4 years with out having a horse to win the first two legs!
But it could easily end up not working out like it did for Real Quiet, Funny Cide, Smarty Jones, etc. I never much liked Big Brown,,,it was very hyped up.
The horses today are just not run like they were at one time. Now a days horses are usually rested 5-10 weeks before their next race and trying to run 3 races with in a 5 week time span is hard for horses. Which on top of that the Belmont being a mile and a half....very tough task that will take a VERY SPECIAL horse to do it.
I'll Have Another looked very good in this race, I was more worried about this race then the belmont due to the shorter distance but he got the job done.
I'm 100% cheering for I'll Have Another to win the TC!!!! It will be the greatest sport story of the year. And the sport needs something like this! Has a very tough Challenge at Belmont though. Bob Buffet already said Bodiemeister will not be running in the belmont..awh rivarly is over for now. But Union Rags and dullahan is coming back.....That is going to be tough! I'll Have Another does have the running style for the Belmont and his pedigree screams distance just as good as the other horses.
Keeping my hopes up and fingers cross for I'll Have Another to win!! It will be great and he might just end up being that special horse! He showed he had heart and determination today.
