NZOaks vs NZDerby vs Probabeel

14 posts in this topic

I think Jennifer Eccles can win the NZ Oaks and Two Illicit the NZ Derby :unsure:

With Probabeel in Australia... this year could produce some very interesting voting results for the Champion 3YO Filly Of The Year . :ph34r:

Add Catalyst to the mix and the result for outright Champion 3YO will also be very interesting! :wub:

You've missed Lethal , he could make a late run to champion 3 year old . Who knows .

Good post Baz - quite a line up isn't it.

 

I'm with you on the Oaks and the Derby - good luck

I think it is awarded to the NZB filly of the year based on who accumulated the most points over the designated races https://www.nzb.co.nz/sponsorships/filly.cfm

So Two Illicit could win the Derby and not get the 3yo filly trophy, the same with Probabeel in Australia. 

Yes very true. A filly could actually win 3yo of the year without being 3yo filly of the year.

 You would have been most impressed with Jennifer this afternoon Baz :)

I hope you are wrong about the Derby.  ;)

 

 

Very impressed Ted...and a very good ride considering how strong Jennifer traveled! To power away like she did was quite incredible! :wub:
P.S.  If I'm wrong about the Derby result...I hope your boy can win it. :) Then we will have to add Dragon Leap to Champion 3YO calculations also? :o
What a crop we have this season!! :wub:

Savvy Coup was Champion 3 year old but not filly of the year. Lisa Latta trained filly won Filly of the Year

Is it only me who thinks the NZ Derby looks a cracking race this year?, with a  few different form lines coming into it i.e. Reggiewood, the filly, Vladivostok and of course the fav. Not to mention Sherwood Forest and Scorpz getting up over the trip.

Two Illicit for mine and Tibetan the boil over.

Dragon Leap was unbelievable after a slight hiccup.

Normally a hiccup of any sort is curtains but in this instance I don't think so. 

Having said that, I would much rather see a NZ bred horse win the race.

For value I am with Vladivostok and not just because I am a committed socialist.

[Come in P4P hehe]

If you are a Socialist you should be committed. :D
