  • jinlie01 · Bayern, Tonalist and Wicked Strong are top 3 yr olds and proven stakes winners and Mr. Speaker is a solid horse on turf but Charge Now does intrigue me with Tiznow as his sire and being half to KY Derby winner Super Saver...he seems to be progressing nicely...and Saratoga is known to be the "graveyard of favorites". Might take a long look at him since he should be 15-1 or higher. · 19 hours ago
  • bradley.loveless.7 · bayern is an aamazing horse. think its not the best spot. if you have all these horses fresh, running to their max, he prob wins... im anti tonalist, think wicked strong races when he wants to ( not a killer) ... i will be playing with the 5,8 in a p4. i just dont see the value on ws or b here ( options a and b) doesnt seem like they win the race enough at odds. dont like alot of the pretenders, really do believe the narrative of viva mejorica. im not saying im not making an idiot bet... but instead of deriving value by singling bayern or potentially using him and WS, going or the jugular and the IRS score. Instead of doing a 10$ p4 w 2 prev stated. thinking outside the box. * if i were betting alot, i would simply just watch the race dynamic for routes ( hint to the wise ) dynamic and track bias plays out more at saratoga intraday than any other track in america. you can successfully hit the late p4 more often than not by simply just watching each previous race and plugging in the dynamics of the later races ( obv with a curve thrown in or 2) · 20 minutes ago

  • Bradley Loveless via Disqus · I have been the biggest shared belief fan since day 1. I bet over 500 on him to win the derby after the ease of his 7f demolishing of kobe's back. I thought and still think he is/was better than cali chrome aka the best 3 year old. I admit I didnt give CC enough props, but earnestly believe SB is the only superfreak of this year's crop ( and since IHA). However, to list him at 5/2 and favorite over GOD is a lil far reaching. This is a super tough field and an interesting dynamic. You have proven winners. As a capper, I relish situations when favorites are installed when they havent had to reach down deep to win. There are too many questions in my head to logically bet SB. What will happen when he is tested? Will he be tactical enough to get in his customary spot? I still think he is a better version of Palace Malice. Similar style, better horse. My heart says yes, but my mind is dubious. He will be tested like he hasnt been before. One could make an argument that 50% of the horses are better than any he has faced... I hope he wins, I just am not sure that he will, or ought to be installed as the fav to do so... · 38 minutes ago

Overheard
tmallios•an hour ago The recent announcement that he will be bypassing The Woodward and pointing to the JCGC is music to my ears. Congrats to the coach for showing that one can never keep learning. To win the Classic you not only need a fit and fast racehorse,almost as important you need a FRESH RACEHORSE. DWayne is showing that the BC is his main goal. As far as PLACE MALICE is concerned.If they have any true aspirations of winning the Classic,they will follow the Lukas lead. They are making a mistake if they run in The Woodward. You see that their egos have been hurt by his poor showing in The Whitney. If ge runs in The Woodward,he will be cranked to the Max. They will need to re-establish his reputation. Personally because of this mentality. PLACE MALICE becomes an incredible betting opportunity in The Woodward. This will almost be his BC Classic. The only problem is that it will probably empty the tank. Just depends on what side of the fence Cot is standing on. Can he curb the ego to re-establish the reputation,or will he come out with guns ablazing next weekend. Either way it makes no difference to me. If he runs,he will most likely be the 2-1 betting favorite. I will be all over that. Then will be a great bet against when he goes against a rested and energized WTC.

  • Mary Z. · For Woodward theoreticals, I wouldn't give up on Alpha just yet. He hasn't always been the best behaved, and maybe he was antsy with the time off. Wished they'd run him in the Cigar Mile instead of the BC Dirt Mile and that Hawthorne race last year. · 17 hours ago
  • travel_vic · Horses step out on the track and from gate to wire are the ONLY motive force in a contest. The run in predictable styles within predictable limits OFTEN enough to predict how the contest will go in that gate to wire effort. ALL the off track soap opera has NOT A THING to do with that. NEVER has. · 9 hours ago

  • buds · Its gonna be tough for me to overlook 5-2 on Shared Belief. I think if it stays there that might be a good bet. Its good to see some new blood out west. I could only wish Chrome was in the line up...68 more days and maybe they will all be on the same track, cant wait. · 1 day ago

  • ollagua · Mystery Traing is going to ruin his race, MT it's a natural good speed horse and will go right to the lead and press Game on Dude all the way. He won't win because he just made it to the US but he'll take GOD out of the race. Shared Belief it's going to have a donation. · 20 hours ago

I admire and respect that legend-to-be, UNLIKE the traitor, Mike Smith.......who's actions show to me, that loyalty isn't on his list of virtues. It's as though Mike wanted "the young guy"or "Game On Dude has had his day. I'm trading him in for fresh, new talent". MIKE SMITH, SHAME ON YOU!!! GAME ON DUDE, WE BELIEVE IN YOU! Run with angels' wings this Sunday and be safe. You are loved so very, very much❤️ NICE HELMET.....ooops; where did that Photo of Mike go, that I added? · 13 hours ago

  • jinlie01 · There seems to be some early speed with The Big Beast, Fast Anna and possibly C. Zee. Coup de Grace has been solid since returning to one turn races and sets up nicely for him again, but I'm going with Wildcat Red getting back to his best in this one and hoping he stays around 5/2 by post time. · 23 hours ago
  • lisa loo · Last year's winner Capo Bastone was flying at the finish of the Derby Trial. It looks like Myositis Dan's connections were eyeing this race after his heartbreaking 3rd in this year's Derby Trial. I'm hoping for some deja vu. Go Myositis Dan! · 13 hours ago
so glad WTC is getting a break, he will be very tough in the JCGC, he reminds me of another Lukas horse that was over raced, not given many breaks, had big potential, and when he runs, always ran his heart out. that horse is Cat Thief. Cat Thief ran 13 times in 1999, ran in just about every prep for the triple crown and ran in every three year race after the triple crown, although he did win the Breeders cup Classic. As a 4 year old in 2000, he ran 10 times and did not win one race, although he ran in almost every G1 in USA from the east coast to the west coast, he didn't win, later on that year he got tired and just stopped trying, I felt really bad for Cat Thief that year. Im just glad that Lukas gave WTC this break, almost made the same mistake like he did with Cat Thief. Now he should be fresh for the fall, I'll be rooting for him
Go Bayern!!!
