Barbaro Updates: 561
updates are now here.
Update 3329: Steve Haskin takes his weekly look at the muddling Derby picture: Ky. Derby Trail: Monba King.
Update 3328: New pictures of Barbaro's 2yo full brother, Nicanor: Long-Awaited Pictures.
Update 3327: A nice and easy morning this morning at Woodbine. We only had four sets, and because a few of them were going to the gate (which does not open until 8:30 am) I did not go into until 7 am. All my horses went nicely and it was just a pleasant and relaxed morning's work. I am now off to meet Jen from Jen's Thoroughblog.
Update 3326: Feedback regarding plans for the Derby and the well being of the horses from the connections of those who ran in the Blue Grass on Saturday: Blue Grass Notes, The Day After. And shipping plans for the top finishers in the Arkansas Derby: Gayego, Z Fortune Shipping to Louisville. It looks like we will have two entrants in the Derby, Pyro and Z Fortune. I am hoping Beau Greely's horse, Tres Borrachos, also gets into the Derby. Andy Durnin will be helping to get him ready in Kentucky. There may also be a filly running: Eight Belles Could Run in Derby.
Less than three weeks to the Derby! With the upset of Pyro over the weekend (lets hope it was a surface issue), the Derby will likely have an overwhelming favorite in the unseasoned Big Brown.
Please keep calling and writing.
