Very impressive win at AP today. Ran 6F in 1:10.84, I don't remember seeing a time that fast for 6F this year at AP besides Shrewd Operator who ran in 1:09.89 and got a Beyer of 114. The runner up by a nose Hammer's Terror was a equally impressive. They look like they will be decent horses.

Oh yeah, maiden claimers ran the first in 1.11 and change, track is very fast Luke of York looks like an average maiden winner.

This horse is a runner and game as can be. Impressive win in a 3 horse photo at the wire, to top it off the horse was 7-2 1 MTP and plummeted to 2-1 favoritism when the gates sprung which at Keeneland is a ton of cash, (Horse also went favored in the doubles). Congrats to Divito, this horse has two wins by a combined head but has beaten some
nice horses in the process.

Hammer's Terror just won wire to wire at Keeneland. It was at the about 7F distance (Beard Course) and I believe he also set the track distance record with that win. Another impressive winner out of that race.

Hammer's Terror was the hottest horse on the backside at Arlington in the last 5 years in his first start.

That being said, he just ran a huge race at Keeneland while still green. I'm not sure how much he will like dirt though but he looks like an ample fill in for Wilcox Inn for a turf 3 year old.

I would love to see them put HT in the BC Juv Turf. I think he would have a huge shot and we would get decent odds on him.

Keeneland's polytrack has GOTTA be lightning fast today. 3 new track records including one in the finale for $10k claimers going 1 1/16.
