Georgie Boy Sidelined

Georgie Boy off the Derby Trail with pulled muscle (Charles Pravata)

Damn it… I really was looking forward to seeing his next prep! Although I think of the California horses El Gato Malo stands to benefit the most from a faster pace scenario a la Big Brown & War Pass (a.k.a the only 2 speed horses in the whole lot).

Sierra Sunset also would have looked more plausible under the fast fraction scenario but using that logic King’s Silver Son starts to look intriguing.

Not to worry, I’ll be updating my Derby Dating selections… one has to stay flexible if one wants to pick the most appropriate suitor(s) for the big dance!
