Oxbow Heads the 3 Year Old Colts
Oxbow Heads the 3 Year Old Colts

Older Males

1. Wise Dan – He could be pointing towards the Firecracker Handicap as his next start…will be dominant.

2. Game on Dude – Has obviously rebounded from his poor 2012 BC Classic performance.  Looks to be getting better with age.

3. Graydar – Sidelined with injury for the Fall/Spring…will return this Summer at Saratoga.  Serious horse if he comes back running strong.

4. Sahara Sky – Tremendous job running down Cross Traffic in the Met Mile.

5. Cross Traffic – This horse has ran two super races in a row, and lost them both.  Could turn into a monster with more seasoning.

Sleeper: Successful Dan – He came back in a big way…now can he FINALLY stay healthy?  Runs this Saturday night in the Stephen Foster

Older Females

1. Royal Delta – Will remain number one until someone can knock her off.  Getting closer to a comeback race.

2. Tiz Miz Sue – Became a millionaire and won her first Grade 1 on the same day.  Better than ever at age six.

3. Ciao Bella – Looks to be peaking, can she carry her Gulfstream form elsewhere?

4. Authenticity – Backed up her huge effort on Oaks day with another solid showing in the Ogden Phipps.

5. On Fire Baby – Has come back for her 4-year-old campaign much improved; could be setting up for a big time year.

Sleeper: Summer Applause – Looks to be rounding into top form for trainer Chad Brown.

3 Year Old Males

1. Oxbow – Proved best and definitely toughest through the Triple Crown season.

2. Orb – We overrated him, but we also shouldn’t count him out.

3. Palace Malice – Could he be the a late bloomer much like his father Curlin.  Summer could prove big for him.

4. Normandy Invasion – He proved in the Kentucky Derby that he’s got the talent…now he needs a victory.  He has just one career win.

5. Mylute – His consistent efforts land him here, but like Normandy Invasion he needs a win!

Sleeper: Itsmyluckyday – Huge bounce back in the Preakness proves he could be one to watch, big race this weekend against Verrazano.

3 Year Old Females

1. Princess or Sylmar – She won the race everyone was calling “The Race of the Year” so how could she not be number one at this point?

2. Dreaming of Julia – Obviously got a disastrous trip in the Oaks; hope she comes back in good order next time out.

3. Beholder – Looked like the winner until deep in the stretch of the Oaks; showed her class off once again.

4. Unlimited Budget – Did not embarrass herself in the Belmont, but didn’t do enough to move herself up the list either.

5. Midnight Lucky – She needed the distance cutback, and fired a HUGE race in the Acorn.

Sleeper: Fifityshadesofhay – Looks like she might be getting better with distance.  Black Eyed Susan win was impressive considering the rough trip.


1. Delaunay – He could be the fastest horse in the world!

2. Groupie Doll – And she’s the fastest lady in the world!

3. Fast Bullet – Finally got to see him do his thing on the big stage.  Exceptional race in the True North.

4. Trinniberg – Will bounce back once he gets on the footing he likes.

5. Justin Phillip – Old timer still running huge races.  Thought his True North was exceptional, just overshadowed by stable mate.

Sleeper: Forty Tales – Proving to be the best 3 year old sprinter in the country as he has won two big races in a row.
