    Default Brethren

    So what do the more seasoned racing people here think of Brethren's win yesterday?

    So far think he's going to be a much nicer horse than his brother. Even if he doesn't win the Derby!

    From your perspective, why do you think that? His conformation, his style of running?

    Physically I like him MUCH better than Super Saver. I just never really like SS all that much, feel his Derby win was a fluke. Never ran a step after the Derby, said he had bone bruising in his cannons and while I believe it a tiny part of me thinks they were just making excuses for a horse that really wasn't that good.

    SS never beat much, though really the whole 3yo crop was mediocre minus pretty much only Lucky.

    Brethren hasn't beaten anything yet either but IMO looks much more talented than his brother.

    I could never get behind the name Super Saver.
    Delicious strawberry flavored death!

    I think he ran really greenly in the stretch and he was lucky he wasn't going up against a deeper field. He may still improve, but right now he's not on my Derby list.
