The Futurity is my favorite DM race. Back in my race going days it produced many nice horses and champions. Bertrando, Silver Charm, Street Cry, Best Pal and many others. I remember watching Worldly Manner in the winners circle and thinking he would be the next TC winner, but it wasn't to be. Two of my personal favs were Old Topper and Minister Eric. I made more money on Eric with place bets than any other horse I ever bet on.
I don't pay much attention to the 2yr olds anymore as most of them are here today and gone tomorrow.
The only one that caught my attention this year is California Chrome mainly because he's flashy. I'll be rooting for him. Anyone else have some Futurity memories? Or who do you like this year.
The year the track honoured Point Given before the Futurity. Gary Stevens didn't show up because he demanded an appearance fee. Even the Prince was there with Baffert. Point Given paraded in the paddock before the race. Occifer destroyed the over-matched colts in the Futurity..
Hearsay and Chatzy gossip re: Gary Stevens.Slow your roll down TMZ.
