I realize this is a great group of Colts, the best the country has seen thus far this year (including any of the Triple Crown Races), but this horse is a SWIMMER.
If you beat him, you beat me out of this pick 4... Check out this comeback win off of surgery and a huge layoff... TRACK RECORD FOR 6 1/2 furlongs at Saratoga.. 13 and change.. This, to me, is the beast that can handle the wonderful filly. We may never see her tackle Zenyatta (the great Champion race mare), but it is very possible Quality Road and Rachel hook up down the line..
Watch this shit, and pay attention to his front legs throughout the stretch drive.. He is literally swimming, an amazing thing to see, really a beautiful thing to see. This is pure trained talent and power here.
Can he handle the mile and a quarter of the Travers? Well, I just would be shocked if he doesn't.
ENJOY (quality road #4 in here, "off a step slow")
