Here we go again. After a remarkable Triple Crown series by American Pharoah, we’re off and running on the 2016  Journey To The Crown.

Feb 23 Update:

  • Gun Runner’s 113 winning the Risen Star is the Best TimeformUS Speed Figure in a 2016 Derby points race so far.

Feb 16 update:

  • Destin ran much improved race (114 TimeformUS Speed Figure) when returned to Florida for Sam Davis, but the race does not earn points towards a Kentucky Derby start
  • Champion Nyquist (another 114 TimeformUS Speed Figure) remained undefeated with nice score in 7f San Vicente; no points for this race but he likely doesn’t need any to get into the Derby gate
  • El Camino Real winner Frank Conversation appears much better away from dirt; two off the board finishes on natural dirt but 3 wins and a place in four synthetic/turf starts
  • Suddenbreakingnews fourth next out winner from Springboard, including both 3yo routes stakes at Oaklawn thus far (Smarty Jones and Southwest)

Feb 9 Update:

  • 2016 kicks off with an average TimeformUS Speed Figure in the Holy Bull (112, Mohaymen) and slowish wins in the Withers (Sunny Ridge, 104) and Robert B. Lewis (Mor Spirit, 109).
