Today on the Fox Sports website:
It reminds me of the Brett Coffey tweet:
As for the ride by Jose Lazcano, well, Kiaran said enough for you to know:
I am not one for slamming jocks and drivers for rides or drives, unless it's obvious. We never know what happened in the race, or if the horse was no good, etc. But (excuse my language), no chit Sherlock. How the game plan could be "let's go after a horse who is much faster than us, at 10f, with decent closers who can probably pick us up," was a plan is beyond me. Maybe Jose saw AP was not right, or something, and decided to take a chance, but a game plan like that? I can't see it. That's Sham-like in the Secretariat Belmont.
Another "Phun" thing I saw (there I go again) Saturday, was the look of defeat. I know there are a lot of great photographers out there, and sometimes it feels Eclipse Awards are pre-determined. However, if you've seen a better shot than this this year, let me know, because I haven't.
Enjoy your Monday everyone.Keen Ice & American Pharoah shortly before the wire. Victor's face & eyes tell the story as he looks at Castellano. pic.twitter.com/NuZ9cc08Xi— Frances J Karon (@francesjkaron) August 30, 2015
