It’s as though he knows something we don’t with that look… He’s Had Enough at Santa Anita leading up to his sharp second in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (I). I think he’s got a good chance at the CashCall (I) tomorrow, but he’s got to prove to me he’s going to keep maturing and wants to start winning. (Photo by Kimpossible Pics)

One of my favorite things about visiting Saratoga was the sheer class that was eminent everywhere— even in the “losers.” Buleria here was 4th to future stakes star Madame Giry, but managed to nose out Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (I) runner-up Stopshoppingmaria after stumbling out of the gate in a turf sprint allowance. Ridden by Ramon Dominguez and bred by famous Claiborne Farm, she’s by Empire Maker and out of a multiple graded stakes winning Pulpit daughter named Wend. When you’re here at Saratoga with its short season and full fields, you know it’s only the best. (Photo by Dawna Wood/GallopingHatRack.com)

I picked Rolling Fog (7-1) yesterday to win the Del Mar Futurity (I) and aw yeah, he made it happen holding off Know More! Can’t believe not many other people had him. Add that one to the list! It wasn’t one of those fantastic, you’re-my-Derby-pick wins though, so I’m still mum about the 2013 Triple Crown scene. Still waiting for my horse…
