This is the time of the year when not visions of sugarplums, but visions of a Triple Crown winner are in the dreams of horsemen and fans alike and there appear to be some serious players on the East and West Coasts

These runners should be followed.

Even with all the accolades that Todd Pletcher and Bob Baffert get, they really deserve their props as they come up with solid sophomores it seems year in and year out and for Baffert, this could be his year.

His trainee Dortmund is perfect so far. He won his debut by nearly 5 lengths, beat entry-level allowance foes by over 7 and proved he was game taking the Los Alamitos Futurity by a head with a 91 Beyer Speed Figure.

He has shown the ability to relax and kick and that will only help moving forward.

Baffert also trains American Pharoah, the Eclipse Award winner. This runner was wide in his debut but won his next 2 outings in Grade 1 company. He would have been the favorite in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile if he did not get hurt.

He beat the BC Juvenile winner by 5 lengths and he has a right to stretch his speed as his sire Pioneerof The Nile won the Santa Anita Derby.

As far as Texas Red is concerned, he is the new Cinderfella on the block. He only cost $17,000, the same price asTriple Crown winner Seattle Slew, but has a potent late kick. He absolutely inhaled his rivals in the BC Juvenile.

Pletcher has several promising youngsters including Carpe Diem, Daredevil and Competitive Edge.

Carpe Diem seized the day in this debut as chalk as he won sprinting going away. He stretched out and was even more impressive taking the Grade 1Breeders’ Futurity at Keenland and was caught wide when chasing Texas Red in the Juvenile.

This runner is on the total other end of the spectrum of Texas Red as he cost $1.6 million. Bred to go long on both sides of his pedigree, this runner has :45 and change speed but has proven he can pass horses.

Daredevil won his first 2 starts in the off going and he took all the worst of it in the BC Juvenile when 7 wide from post 10. His damChasethewildwind earned nearly $100,000 and is kin to a pair that banked over $200,000 but more importantly, the dam dropped Albert Maximus, who is a Grade 1 winner and earned over $1.3 million.

Competitive Edge also has the blood to thrive with distance as his sire Super Saver won the Kentucky Derby. Competitive Edge graduated by over 10 lengths and won his other start in the Grade 1 Hopeful.

Granted, these are just a few of what will be many hidden gems to be uncovered during the Triple Crown Trail. A good horse can come from anyplace and as young 3-year-olds; these horses can make meteoric advancements in maturity very quickly.

It will get interesting.
