I think Union Rags will be something like Animal Kingdom, and not Silky Sullivan.
doubt he can do that in the 10 furlongs of the derby----and that doesn't even figure in any traffic
MOST very late movers (other than Lit de Justice of the Z gal) just don't get up in time chronically
or was this just another sway away or ice box type of late run in an isolated race.
Although he didn't get up in time,I think Optimizer looked best in this race. Can he beat Union Rags? Perhaps his late speed will gun him down?
