Improving colt is probably the horse with the most

Lite on experience, but heavy on talent...mommy won
the KY Oaks

Filly has run as fast as any of the boys around two
turns...reminds me of Eight Belles.
7 Papa Clem
Ran well at Fairgrounds considering shipping and the
slop...this guy will love the Derby distance.
8 Quality Road
His win in the Fountain of Youth was terrific...
distance is a question.

On the improve...his Sham was BTL and he came out
of it awesome...surprise package.

Illinois bred can really run...needs a little luck...
I still believe he has the quality.
