Keeneland opens with a great Saturday card. A positive change in the Blue Grass is that the race will be run over the dirt for the first time since 2007. We have had some horses run well out of this race in the Derby over the all-weather track, so this edition could very well give us one to seriously consider in the Derby. It's probably why Pletcher chose this race for Carpe Diem. Here's the field and past performances. TJ

Well without having seen the PP's, but having seen most of these run, it looks like it's Carpe Diem's race to lose. I'd expect a better performance from Ocho Ocho Ocho to complete the exacta.

Hi Geo,
The PP's are listed below the entries. But I agree, it's his race to lose. TJ

Carpe Diem takes the same road Street Sense did en-route to his Kentucky Derby win. Looks very hard to beat.
Frammento
Gorgeous Bird
Classy Class

Carpe Diem did what was expected.
Danzig Moon 2nd
Ocho Ocho Ocho a creditable 3rd after pressing throughout
Frammento 4th

Carpe Diem has been a solid horse from the get-go. He's hard not to like. Wasn't the flashiest of wins, but it's not always the flashy ones that win the Derby :-)
Scrap what I said about flashy, he looked pretty good at the end, I thought he looked like he could run on.

Hi Cree,
He wasn't really asked to do any more than he did. Yet he finished well and galloped out well. That Zito horse (Frammeto) was running well on the rail. He's starting to remind me of Ice Box.....if he makes it into the Derby starting gate with his 20 points, the distance will certainly help him. TJ

Here's the replay of the Blue Grass, Carpe Diem's beyer figure was weakest of the 3 Derby preps on Saturday with a 95. TJ

What I noticed most is that Ocho Ocho Ocho seems quite tiny.

Post subject:  Re: The GR I Blue Grass

Oh yes, he is incredibly small. Next to Carpe Diem, who is medium-sized, he looked small.

He can have his own reality show - Tiny Horse Nation.
