POST TIME 5:18 PM -- Back up the Brinks truck!...#6 Boxeur Des Rues will crush a top- notch G2 Dixie Stakes field at a box car price! This four year-old colt is sitting on a lifetime top! The blinkers experiment is over and Boxeur Des Rues should relish the firm going on the Pimlico sod. Doug O'Neill has been high on this horse all along but nagging injuries have created big gaps in his training. All is well now and expect this one to move forward by at least 6 BRIS Speed Rating points today. He'll sit about three lengths off the early leaders and then will dispense with one devastating pounce with a furlong to go. You may even get 18-1 on this guy in a field loaded with quality. #9 Air Support worries me some as he figures to be also sitting on a very big effort after the long layoff leg stretcher posted at Keeneland a month ago. Gets Leparoux today and has been carefully pointed to this race by Shug McGaughey. Very dangerous here. The talent is deep in this field so you will want to consider #3 Hudson Steele, #11 Casino Host, #7 Smart Bid, #10 Forte Dei Marmi and and #4 Straight Story to round out your exotics.
