The road to Kentucky continues Saturday with a couple 2 turn Derby point races in the GR III Withers Stakes at Aqueduct and the GR II Holy Bull at GP. Also of interest Saturday at GP is Awesome Banner, an exciting 3YO Florida bred colt, who opted to stay at one turn in the GR II 7 furlong Swale Stakes. The Swale Stakes once carried derby points, but was stripped of that honor, after Trinniberg's Swale win in 2012. Below are the entries and past performances. TJ

Withers:
Flexibility
Donegal Moon - make the break, make it a horse race!!!
Vorticity

Holy Bull:
Mohaymen - seems like the creme de la creme in this race
Conquest Big E - I have been watching him closely because they have been touting him, but I think he needs to do well in stakes company (outside of allowance ranks) for me to continue to believe them
Greenpointcrusader - want to like this colt, but not sure how fast he is. might need a race?

Swale:
Noholdingbackbear
Richie the Bull
Economic Model

Here's the finish of the Holy Bull:

I'm psyched that there are some standouts already, with a handful of undefeated horses. I was worried that this year would be meh after last year, but it's heating up! :D

What did people think of Smokey's Image (I know he didn't run in any of these, but I did see his race) and Awesome Banner? Derby contenders?

Thoughts on Greenpointcrusader? I have loved his dam's foals way back before they were popular.
He's in my fantasy stable . . . If only I could have gotten a percentage of him!

Hi Geo,
I'm not sure who Smokey's Image is? BUT...Awesome Banner could be a special horse. I understand his trainer has no worries about him stretching out and with his speed could be a dangerous horse. His trainer, Stanley Gold also said he doesn't have Derby fever, but he does want to test him going long, most probably in the Fountain Of Youth February 27th. The FOY will bring out the best of the best, probables include but not limited to Mohamen, Cherry Wine, Zulu, Greenpointcrusader, Awesome Banner, Awesome Speed and possibly Shagaf (another very talented Shadwell horse trained by Chad Brown). Brown does want to run in the FOY, but Shadwell's racing manager (Rick Nichols) may decide to keep these two talented animals away from each other for the time being? One that was not mentioned as a possible was Rally Cry....a Pletcher horse who ran 3rd to Shagaf recently after encountering a ton of trouble could end up in the race? TJ

Hi Toccet,
He is a nice horse and needed that race against Mohamen. Considering he went 2 turns for the 2nd time in his career and that being off a layoff, I'm sure he will be much tighter in his next start. TJ

Hi Skeenan,
Yes, I did check up on him....but thanks for posting the article. He looks like California Chrome reincarnated:>) He will follow the same schedule as well, looking to run in the San Felipe next. He is for sure a nice horse....on the negative side I hate to see an owner take a horse away from a trainer who went 5 for 5 with the horse....bad mojo:>) TJ

Definitely I had that same concern about the trainer TJ, although I understand it was because the owner didn't want the horse to be based in Northern California this year. Espinoza seems pretty high on him.
