With a soft pace and lone speed, Rachel wins the Belmont. Mine That Bird can make a sustained three furlong drive but wouldn't take her down if they are all running a sprint at the end. In the end it doesn't matter if Rachel runs or the pace is soft...Dunkirk is your easy winner. Charitable Man? The Belmont's Pioneerof Denile
With Borel up, she would be 2 for 2 right now!
Rachel Alexandra could be vulnerable to a fresh face if she decides to tackle the Test of Champions. Charitable Man and Dunkirk are two names that come to mind.
Yeah... win the Belmont first, then talk. Can Rachel win the Belmont? Absolutely. Can she win it by taking it to the boys with a solid frontrunner, like Big Drama, flanking her for the first mile... I think we all saw the answer to that on Saturday. Left alone on the front - like Da' Tara - she could win by 8. But challenged.... and dealing with Mine That Bird flying at the end... doubtful...
She was basically a public workout in the Oaks, so is she as fresh for the Preakness if she has to battle in the Derby? And if so, is she able to hold off Mine That Bird then repeat the effort in the Belmont? I say no.
