Audible looked by far the best of the prep winners Saturday... I'm still not sold 100% for the KD since it's Pletch at GP this time of year. But he did look good.
Sporting Chance is supposed to run at OP on 2/19... hopefully he's set and ready.

Audible did look good. I need to see more to add him. Javier Castellano is loaded with three year olds. If he chooses well he could get his Derby this year.

With Zulfikahr not getting a start in the San Vicente I think I'll replace him with Audible.

Keep your eyeballs on Tenfold, trained by Asmussen. He broke his maiden first out on Feb. 7-  8.5f at OP, running very greenly, but won by open lengths and looked like he wanted to go around again on the gallop out.
Curlin x Tapit mare.... so the pedigree is there.

Combatant and Sporting Chance both looked good in the Southwest imo. Both ran well against the bias. If I had to take a horse out of this one it would be Sporting Chance. First start in almost 6 months, ran against track bias, close early to a solid pace  and got bumped sideways by the runner up mid-stretch. Plus he was a little late switching leads.
I would expect him to move forward next out. Combatant was actually my top pick and also ran well, though with a somewhat better trip than SC. He also bumped that one soundly mid-stretch, but no DQ. Maybe the stewards determined Sporting Chance's late pace wasn't enough to him past Combatant anyway.

Should be a good rematch in the Rebel if all show up.

I wasn't impressed with the FOY at all, but it had more to do with the way the race unfolded than any one performance, other than possibly Good Magic who ran a flat race by most estimations. The top 3 went around the track like a merry go round race; closers had no shot, but might not have been good enough anyway. I wouldn't touch the winner next out, unless it appears on paper that he gets to dictate a slow pace again. Even then, at a short price, no thanks.
