Pocket Cowboys Rolls In The New York Derby

It is almost a year now but I have been waiting for Pocket Cowboys to get back on the turf. This huge son of Wild Event is built for the grass. To my surprise he shipped up to Finger Lakes and took down the New York Derby on dirt returning $14. There is going to be a day when this horse goes back to the turf and when he does bet him. The crowd is going to be skeptical of him as a turf prospect with only one bad turf race on his past performances way back in October 2008 when he was a two year old. This gelding has the class and ability to run on the turf. Maybe Scott Schwartz enters him in a turf race at Saratoga, give him the benefit of the doubt as this horse will improve on the green.
