Congrats to the Essential Quality and his owner and Trainer Steve Asmussen on a first-rate job of horsemanship…
I would have to add the same to Hot Rod Charlie and his connections, they did a remarkable job of getting this horse to go 1 1/4 mile in the KD and then come back with such a gutsy effort in the Belmont. It’s my opinion, that if Hot Rod Charlie could have relaxed a little more and let Rock Your World do all the heavy lifting on the front end, to outcome might have gone his way. But he was sharp and a willing racer from the flag fall… and that is horse racing…
Both put on a real show!
Belmont — Power Page Classic and THE PLUS!
Santa Anita — Power Page Classic and THE PLUS!
As my Mom would say, “there is nothing more exciting than watching my $2 bucks run!”
