Quote Of The Day

“[Mentally], he’s matured. I don’t see a big
change in him with the fact that he’s simply older.
He’s still physical, somewhat playful, but he understands
racing better than he did last year.”

Trainer Steve Asmussen on Kentucky Derby
Presented by Yum! Brands (G1) contender Pyro,
who is entered in the $750,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G1) on
Saturday at Keeneland Race Course

This is the horse that I think stands out as the best Derby contender so far. I can't wait to see how he runs on Saturday.

just cause he won 2 preps this year?

Because of HOW he won... very explosive closing kick, like a horse who can go 1 1/4. And because I like the trainer ;)

and because you asked which way I was leaning... I had to come up with something.
