Happy Memorial Day!

Today is a day to celebrate the memory of our fallen soldiers. It is also traditionally one of the finest racing days of the year. As usual there are big stakes and great cards all over the nation on Memorial Day. So today I wish you all a happy holiday… now let’s talk horses. Lone Star Park, Hollywood Park, and Monmouth Park all have multiple stakes to keep a close eye on, but no race today is bigger than the return of the brilliant Quality Road in Belmont Park’s historic Met Mile. A career that has been filled with setbacks, but also with the promise of ultimate quality, has led Quality Road to be one of the most interesting horses on our racing landscape in years. Today, another chapter of the Quality Road saga will be written.

Well I called the first two in order, but Convocation and Tizway mess up my top four, lol. QR is a montster. Right now the best older horse in the nation, and until one of the big girls step up he is leading candidate for HOTY and is widening that gap with each and every race.

Quality Road ran big and so did Musket Man. Quality Road is the horse everyone has to beat.
