Really worried about the amount of time this one is going to lose due to his ankles you dont want any hiccups at this crutical time on the Derby trail. You need a horse who is ready to fire come Derby day not one who is still playing catch up from Febuary. Another one who will run all day I fully expect him to retain his two year old form and get better as the distances get longer. The Gotham looks to be his next start where he could potentially meet up with Noble Moon another who looks like a serious contender at this point Honor Code with need to be firing on all cylinders to get by that one.

I'm very worried about this one as this one has missed two scheduled works now and on the Kentucky Derby trail you cannot have any hiccups without them seriously effecting your chances. That being said one he comes back he better be firing on all cylinders and ready to roll he better put on a show or else he will drop off. He is the your 2013 Champion 2 year old male but that doesnt bode well in the Kentucky Derby as the last two year old champ to win the Kentucky Derby was Street Sense in 2007. I still feel he is the best of the west though from what I've seen so far from the California contingent but that being said there are always surprises on the Kentucky Derby trail.
