Illiterate bunch has two horses sitting a top the juvenile dirt sprint championship standings in Simply Still and Piel Roja.
In the latest dirt sprint qualifier Piel Roja pulled away in the stretch for a solid neck win over the competition. This gelding has 2 wins out of three starts and has a win a both 6 and 7 furlongs. He's a sales ring horse out of Indian Charlie and looks to follow in the steps of Lucky Jake and Paul Simon before him.
In the dirt division there are two winners sitting in pole position: Darbee (Harlan's Holiday) from King of Thrones; and Ride of the Valkyries (Ride on Curlin x Evita) from Nemesis Stud. This looks like, as it always is, it's going to be a competitive division. With the final being contested over a mile it may change the dynamics a bit with Darbee holding the 2nd and 3rd fastest time this season for the group.
The turf stayers has a horse topping the leaderboard with two qualifier victories to her name already in Rich and Powerful (Fame and Power x Beebe) out of Black Cat Racing's barn. She cost a mere $21 to bring to life and is a perfect three for three and already has a lifetime earnings just shy of $150. What a value!
