That's what makes me mad. NBC/ Mike Tirico can't resist being negative/stirring the pot. He can't seem to remember that he doesn't work for the four letter network anymore.

It's beyond stupid. They are purposely hurting a sport that they paid to have the rights to cover.

They don't dare do this nonsense on Sunday Night Football.

But if MS wins a few more stakes this year I believe he is a strong contender.
I'm still undecided about him. I do think he is a nice colt. And although not sure of talent level what I said that day I still believe. He showed a ton of heart. Doing everything he was asked . Unfortunately he was asked the wrong things.

How they manage him from here on out if they do race again will be important to end of year honors and possible breeding interests. Maybe he goes in the Haskell that shouldn't have a ton of "top" level talent signed in. American Pharoah ran in it just because his owners wanted to.

If Mandella decides to keep Omaha Beach out west for a while, he can avoid him somewhat. That makes the Travers a possibly.

All I know is his owners are behaving poorly.

I'd like to see MS go to the Haskell, the Travers, and the BC. Maybe not the Classic, but if he does well in a couple of other races, it's a possibility. I'm still on the fence about whether the Wests will even run him again, though. They seem the type to throw a fit and retire him.

He'd be a cute little eventer/jumper, though... seems like a nice enough colt with a good temperament, and he is cute as a button.
