Curlin & Robby Albarado winning the Breeders’ Cup Classic (Charles Pravata)
Curlin is one hell of an impressive horse, or as Swifty just put it on the phone, “Curlin’s got skillz”.
It was easy to dismiss how effortlessly he won his last race, but not here. He ran at least 3 wide the entire race and on command produced another gear to motor past the field and win by
3-4 7 3/4 lengths… effortlessly.
I’m happy to report that Curlin is doing a stellar job of fulfilling my hopes and dreams of making an air tight case for talented horses racing beyond 3. I don’t even care if Jess Jackson is lying through his teeth about doing for it good of the sport… letting him get credit for it is a small price to pay if our stars can stick around longer because of it. But we all know where the real credit goes… thank you Fen-Phen!!
