Palace Malice puts away Preakness winner Oxbow

Wrong, in any year some Horses stand out and some don't, every year is a good crop, some years we are luck to get 2 to 5 great 3 year old but not many for the Triple Crown adventure

I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but everybody tricked themselves. We were all saying how wide open the Kentucky Derby was, how there were many horses that could win. When Orb won like he did, immediatly people went off about how this would be the year a Triple Crown was won. Then, both Oxbow and Palace Malice won and people are saying Orb isn't that good and that this is a weak crop. Wouldn't it make more sense if somebody won two or at some point all three races and people would say THEN it's a weak crop? That if only a couple horses could win, the others must not be that good compared to the winners? It's definately not the strongest crop we've seen, but everyone hopes that each year there there will be a horse like Big Brown (with exception of the Belmont), Barbaro, Smarty Jones or Afleet Alex. In reality, t's hard for that type of horse to come around. And when it doesn't happen people immediatly assume the crop is weak. Last year's was better, but I wouldn't necesarilly call this crop "weak." Orb and Oxbow are very talented horses. Gary Stevens even said that Oxbow was one of the best colts he's ever sat on, which should say something. It appears that Palace Malice is finding his best stride now. It's not that the crop's weak; it's that nobody was as flashy as super stars like the ones I mentioned earlier, or horses like Bodemeister or I'll Have Another. I think that there are a few horses that will come back to do some damage later in the year and hopefully their owners let them come back another year and are good four year olds.

YOU SIR I ABSOLUTELY RITE

Seems like Stevens has always said that whatever horse he is currently riding is one of the best in his career. Like Oxbow really compares with Point Given and Silver Charm.

Hi! Well, that is too bad that one of Todd Pletcher's horses won the Belmont. I have to wonder what medication and how much medication this horse was on since Mr. Pletcher has a history of medicating his horses? I don't bet on his horses. Thank you! Lise from Maine

The fact that Palace Malice was still eligible for an "a other than", never having won anything but a maiden race, proves how mediocre this crop of 3-year-olds is. None of the contestants in this year's Belmont is any great shakes.

And your opinion has credibility because......!!
Jordan More than 1 year ago
Because he's right.
Jennifer More than 1 year ago
Well I have to agree with you on that statement none of them had excuses this time and they went fast early and crawled home so ORB is not a super horse. I am done to the breeders cup the undercard had some good racing with decent payoffs so I survived the day but took a beating on the Belmont. looking forward to seeing the two year olds run later in the year so I can get ready for next year. I still would love to see them move the second leg of triple crown to gulfstream or oaklawn because pimlico is terrible

won't happen until pimilico is torn down. Thoroughbred rulers are more conservative than the Tea Party.
