    2016 Kentucky Derby: Blue Creek is Flying Under U.S. Radar
    Brian Zipse Zipse At The Track Horse Racing Nation Jau.5 2016
    Wouldn’t it be something if the curse of Apollo and the drought of Dubai were put to rest in the same year? Both trying to win the roses via Dubai, and not racing as a juvenile, have proven to be hurdles too large to overcome, but in a year when the new sophomores of American racing have yet to scare anyone off, perhaps it is time for a horse to come along and break all the traditional rules of the first Saturday in May. Enter Blue Creek, a most interesting young contender for the 2016 Kentucky Derby.
    Blue Creek (Street Cry--Blue Bunting, by Dynaformer) has been well thought of since inception, but more recently the striking bay colt made a very good impression in morning trials at Meydan.

    Shucks, It's louisecastello's "Birthday" Today and I wasn't invited to her party! I guess everyone thinks Grumpy Ole Males like me wouldn't enjoy this fun celebration. :broken_heart:

    Background story:
    Bigherbie went to the Breeder's Cup back in 2010. As soon as she got off the plane, she raced over from the airport to Three Chimneys for Smarty Jones' going away party and got to see the great Dynaformer as well! It was a cold and raining day so she apologizes for the lighting in these photos.

    Bigherbie knows how @louisecastello LOVES Dynaformer so this is her way of wishing louise a...

    ♫ Happy Birthday! ♫

    ...on this great day...June 24, 2016!

    Glad you like the birthday card @louisecastello!

    @bigherbie knew you LOVED Dynaformer and she wanted to use these two photos she took. She gave me "free range" to put words in Dynaformer's mouth. LOL! We were "secretly" corresponding on this for a few days before posting.

    LOL! I adjusted the darker images a bit...glad Dynaformer didn't turn "green" (with envy) when I fooled around with color adjustment to brighten/lighten his photos up slightly.
  • So sad about Brilliant Speed. RIP.

    Margano is a gelding, but he was retired in 2015 at age 6. Now is 8 years old and they "unretire" him?? Did they have to retire him due to injury? Seems unusual, guess he wasn't happy hanging out on the farm!
  • Just a shot in tbe dark but...maybe started over fences and they realized steeplechase was his thing. Just a hunch. Nothing more.
  • Ugh, I hate when they "un-retire" horses. I do trust the Jacksons and Delacour, but it still makes me nervous.
