Blue is spending the week at the farm, eating grass and rolling in grass and mostly concentrating on trying to even out those tan-lines from the harness.
He's been working hard, doing a great job and needs a break.
Last week he was very aggressive at the start. Marino was trying to take him back but he wasn't keen on that idea. He didn't want to 'rate' or settle in and just wanted to be out and moving. Later in the race, when that 1-horse on the rail broke stride and Blue was forced out wide and pushed around a bit you could almost see him say "oh to heck with this! nothing's working out here!"
