Life is Good won The Whitney at Saratoga and earned a spot in the starting gate for The Breeders’ Cup Classic at Keeneland in November. That is not the end of the story. Not by a long shot as we say in The Sport of Kings, Thoroughbred Horse Racing.
On this episode of Past The Wire TV and our Breeders’ Cup Win And You’re In series we’ll take you behind the scenes in the paddock and the Winners’ Circle. After that things get interesting.
Michael Wilson and Jonathan Stettin talk just how long the secret was out about Life is Good. They explore the potential rivalry with Flightline. They give their takes on who will be the better racehorse and stallion. Who has the advantage and why if they both make the gate for The Breeders’ Cup Classic? Might we see Life is Good in a race on The Breeders’ Cup card other than The Classic? Who is a fighter and who might not be? At the conclusion they talk Irad Ortiz’s much discussed ride on Life is Good and the no inquiry decision by the stewards.
You’ll hear some interesting takes you might not expect from these two seasoned professionals. You may not agree but that is what makes a horserace after all. In the end we hope it is all settled on the track and eventually in the breeding shed.
