    Hi Joel – Breeders Cup Win and Your in Races now coming at us in a flurry. Eagerly awaiting California Chrome next week in the PA Derby. Shared Belief will have his prep at SA in a few weeks. Will Take Charge is gearing up for his race in the Kentucky Jockey Gold Cup. I agree with you that Bobby’s Kitten has a big shot in the Woodbine Mile. I see a Bobby’s Kitten/JacK Milton Ex. box.

      Hey Joe!

      Bobby is talented and just needs to mature mentally. A horse that cannot settle early isn’t going to beat any quality field, which is why he lost the Hall of Fame S. last out. But a one-turn mile should be something he’ll love with his speed, and the fact that he gets in lite at 112 lbs as a 3yo facing elders, I find him very very intriguing Sunday. If they don’t respect him early and he is able to settle into a good early rhythm then I think he could be gone.

      I’m also very intrigued by Kaigun, who has quietly had a great year while being asked to do a variety fo different things against G1 competition. He’s at his home track now with a good local prep over that course, and I just think he may be best around a mile. If he can break through Sunday then he’s one who can easily turn into one of North America’s top contenders pointing towards that BC Mile IMO.
