The Camino Real vs The Risen Star :
Anothertwistoffate was absolutely so impressive in winning the Camino Real up at Golden Gate on Saturday. I try not to react to the “visual” until I see the Figs, but I found myself really excited as I watched his action. On a quick evaluation, it appeared he was running faster at the end of the race then in the early going… and he was always in front while totally in hand. I just loved this effort!
Down at The Fair Grounds, War Of Will broke sharply from the far outside PP and assumed a stalking position behind an honest pace. He did everything correctly, showing his rather impressive stride throughout. But to be honest, it seemed like a good effort, but didn’t visually effect me to the same extend. The final 1/16 just didn’t electrify, but he might have been coasting… We will watch the progression… The final clocking seemed about the same as as the fillies in the Rachel Alexandre, but note the more difficult post position he had to overcome… He could be a really good one….
But right now, I am in the hands of Anothertwistoffate…
