I didn't see the race but Jeff Siegel was just talking about it. He said Mastercraftsman just "cruised" over the surface.
That's two big European guns going in the Classic. With Rip Van Winkle and Mastercraftsman, the folks across the Pond have a very powerful arsenal, and neither of these two are even the continent's biggest star.
We've got some nice American horses, but they'll have to be ready to rock, otherwise it's conceivable the Europeans could deliver another 1-2 punch.
