Not to take anything away from Social Inclusion but let's face it, even mediocre horses are breaking or coming close to breaking track records at Gulfstream this meet. It is a speed favoring track.At first I was very disappointed in Honor Code too. Then I thought about it. Shug wanted an easy race for his first start since Nov. Common since says he was going to need a race. Then when Javier saw SI had got away on the front, he didn't go all out on HC to get him to catch SI, he let him learn from it. I think Shug got what he wanted from the race for HC, as long as HC keeps improving out of this race, I don't think it was a big deal. Nobody wants their Derby horse to use everything in allowance race.
Are there any other AP Indy's in the Derby pipeline? I have always wanted Indy to get a Derby winner.
