There has been some talk about whether Songbird is the best American three-year-old of either gender--remember, she's a she. I suspect that talk has now been tabled.
The Travers Stakes is always one of the big prizes for U.S. three-year-olds. It isn't as well known outside of racing circles as the Triple Crown races are, but think of it as a top-level contest in the same division, but after these colts have had a few more months to mature and develop. There are some colts who, for one reason or another, are not ready in the spring, but by late summer...well, that's what happened here.
I don't think Songbird can compete with this. I'm not sure California Chrome or Frosted, the two best older horses in training, can compete with this. Looking forward to the Breeders' Cup.

So...next up will be a major jump up in class in the Breeders' Cup Distaff on November 4. Songbird has defeated all her notable three-year-old peers, but there are several older mares out there who are better than anything she's faced thus far.
BuryMeInBurgundyAndGold: still needs to be fired nack, you are going to lose like that more then you get lucky and win like we did tonight.

southskin: We're 4-2, bury. Can we give we give it a rest for a week? Some of y'all continue to predict doom, but we keep on winning.

southskin: How's meddle 1-5 thread is going? Ha! Meddle is a joke!

griff57: Game balls....AP and Bibbs on Offense..The whole defense!

southskin: Meddle might get blasted by me on the forum if he shows up with more of his BS

SkinsFan67: When we were sitting 2-2, I told every one that we had 4 very winnable games coming up. All i got was we've never beaten Cam or Dak. Well, cross those off the bucket list.

dancingbear: the defense nearly out TD'd the offense in the redzone

southskin: I think this offenders may start to click doing the latter part of the season.
Oct 21, 2018 18:53:36 GMT -5
RUsknFan: I think few teams win both of these games with the guys we had out.
Oct 21, 2018 18:54:14 GMT -5
RUsknFan: It would be like KC beating Cinci and Baltimore back to back without Hill, Hunt, and Kelce.

southskin: Chris Spielhman said today.... It's tough for most teams to win with multiple starters out.
Oct 21, 2018 18:55:12 GMT -5
southskin: He said that during the Vikings/Jets game, as the Jets had several starters out today.

raypetty: We were fortunate tonight but I'll take the win. No penalty the game would have been tied. Way to go D you played your hearts out! Nice game by AP too. Doctson show more today than at any time during his tenure here.
