: : : : Was this horse purchased on your recommendations? Do you
: : : : see him going through the pair of 6's tommorow even though
: : : : he has developed quite a bit (6 points) from his 2 yo year.

: : : Yes, he was bought on our recommendation. Off the pair of efforts (6's) I don't see him breaking through now, or even in the next couple of starts. But 6's will do just fine in 3yo grass stakes, and at the weights an 8 might win this one, At least we hope so. TGJB

: : Bewhere of outside posts on the outer turf course. I was there this wknd and noticed the one path is very nice since they removed the rails. It allowed 42-1 divide and conquer to place in the 4stardave. Then on sunday, the #2 won the fifth race skimming the hedge, and the longshot #1 was second. Then Monday, Bailey stole one after going 1/2 in 45 and 4. Also last Thursday Seattle Dancer wired 'em at 23-1. Seems like its tough to close on a frontrunner that grabs the hedge. Good luck with the rascal though.

: I'm puzzled as to why you don't think this horse will break through the "6's" now or within a few races. Please elaborate. Thanks

TG--He did a lot of developing to get to the 6s. Obviously, we think the pattern is okay, but we expect a lot of 6s, not new tops (short term). At the price Prestonwood paid, that will work out fine.

Incidentally, does anyone know what happened to that 2yo filly the Ragozin office bought (for 3 times what we paid for Big Rascal)? TGJB
