3 Year Old Males
1. I’ll Have Another – He’s still number one. Only way he gets passed is if Dullahan or maybe Paynter wins the Classic.
2. Dullahan – Sorry Bodemesiter, but you just got passed. Dullahan is still a ways from catching I’ll Have Another, but his win in the Pacific Classic was big time.
3. Bodemeister – Sad to see him go. I think he could have been something really special.
4. Alpha – Jim Dandy and Travers winner…enough said.
5. Paynter – Moved him down a few notches, and he’s sick again. Concerned about his future…
Sleeper: Fast Falcon – Very impressive in the Travers, can he consistently make that kind of run?
1. Game On Dude – Still the best in this group, and the favorite to win the Classic
2. Ron The Greek – Already has a win over the Santa Anita dirt, steady horse
3. Fort Larned – Has burst onto the scene with a huge Whitney victory
4. Mucho Macho Man – Runs in this weeks Woodward, could move up the rankings with a win.
5. Wise Dan – Flexible horse, but best going one mile on the turf.
Sleeper: Alternation – Everyone has forgotten about him…not us!
3 Year old Females
1. Questing – Easily the best in this division, maybe the best female regardless of age
2. Contested – Nice to have her back in good form, definitely best when sprinting
3. Grace Hall – Bad performance in the Alabama; still think she’s pretty good.
4. My Miss Aurelia – Came back running well; curious to see what’s next.
5. Believe You Can – Kentucky Oaks winner has lost a lot of steam, now out for the year.
Sleeper: In Lingerie – Beaten soundly by Questing; still could play a factor though.
1. Royal Delta – Fell flat in the Personal Ensign; still believe in her though.
2. It’s Tricky – Was the best in the Personal Ensign; but literally fell to her knees twice out of the gate.
3. Include Me Out – Home track advantage for the Ladies Classic.
4. Love and Pride – Big win in the Personal Ensign, can she put two wins together?
5. Turbulent Descent – Sharp sprinter is early favorite for Breeders Cup filly and mare sprint
Sleeper: Awesome Feather – Still waiting on her to race again…
