That was absolutely beautiful. You've really got to love Presious Passion. When he takes the lead, he means business. He was in charge the entire way, all 1 1/4 miles of it. Not the first time either. That's his style and I love it.
When he does not take the lead you do not have to love him.
Number of times Precious Passion will rally to win a graded stakes = 0
You can take the man away from the racetrack, but you can not take the racetrack out of the man.
Hey RS. Not sure what betnags is talking about. Presious Passion is one of my favorite horses because of his unique front running style. He takes the lead, gets comfortable, and simply runs the other horses off their feet. Elvis Trujillo does a great job with this horse. As long as the turf is firm he's a force to be reckoned with. I'm pulling for him in the BC Turf. He should be one of the favorites.
It's nice to see you post, Driver8.
Yes, Presious Passion is to be reckoned with. I had great confidence when I saw the horse in front, and when he's there, he knows how to find the winners circle.
I believe Bet nags is prolly pointing out while he is a nice horse, he hasnt beaten the top turf horses and usually wins only when he gets an easy lead. And NO Medici Code and Artiste Royale arent top turf horses . He runs his eyeballs out though...and ya gotta love that.
I would be a vegetarian if BACON grew on trees
I wonder if a Coolmore horse in the BC will think he's one of their rabbits. They might be thinking to themselves that their buddy is supposed to let us by in the straight and this one isn't stopping. While I don't think he can win against the top 12 furlong horses that should show up at the BC, I wouldn't feel entirely comfortable tossing him either.
"I'm Winston Wolf. I solve problems."
Only difference is that Precious Passion opens up large leads and runs the competition off their feet while Great Communicator was always in the hunt in his races winning by heads and noses.
Great Communicator was a frontrunner that tired to do the same thing, see exhibit A. Not sure what your point is, I'm just talking about their style, the way they carry their heads and their determination to be up front and see how far they can go.
