Well the Smarty Jones colt Backtalk was very impressive in the 108th running of the Bashford Manor Stakes at Churchill Downs yesterday. Here's the chart call:
"Backtalk stumbled at the start, recovered to race behind the leaders while in the two path, angled out for a clear path in midstretch and finished well to be up in time."
Here's the video:
The Bashford Manor was a 5 furlong race and I believe that Backtalk will be able to stretch out to longer races. If he remains healthy, and that's my hope for all the 2YO's, he should be fun to watch on the 2010 Triple Crown Trail.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July everyone!
