I love this blog. You guys publish a lot of hard to find info. Thanks for all that you do.

I would like to see you add Roman Ruler's progeny to the 2yo watch list. I think he is a Freshman sire to watch. He was an extremely fast 2yo and bred a very good first book of mares.

Brian F. - you make a lot of good points about Roman Ruler, but we took a vote and he didn't make the top 5.

I'm sure a number of his offspring will be in the races that I do cover.

It would be great if I could follow more stallions, but it's physically impossible. If you would like to comment about Roman Ruler's offspring as they race, that would be great.

I didnt think Stone Legacy got the best trip of her life and could have done better. I was disappointed as I have seen her run so well before.

sophiekea - she didn't run that badly, but it may have been the difference between dirt and poly. Let's see her back on the dirt!
