Yup, we’re all disappointed!  John Velazquez said after the race that he took him away from the pony going to the gate and he was really pumped up and felt terrific (both of them did)!  He had a great position going into the first turn until the eventual winner crossed over and took his ground.  He didn’t seem too enthralled with the whole thing after that.  He did come back with some scrapes on his legs and you also have to wonder what the Derby took out of him.  He ran such a big race there and this race is only two weeks later.  He’s such a laid back horse I wonder if you could even tell if he was tired!!  Memo, his groom was very upbeat though.  He said ‘next time’ and gave him a big hug – wish I’d had my camera!{jcomments on}
