  1. This is becoming a joke. Instead of reporting which race Omaha Beach will run in next, it should be which race that Mandella says he is pointing for will he skip.

    Mandella is not only a gifted trainer, he is skilled at managing a horse’s career. He won Eclipses with Beholder without her ever winning a race outside California. It appears he is employing a similar strategy with Omaha Beach.
