  • be083 · You should stop gambling. Nice website, good reporting. swell guys all of you. But your picks are generally bad when there is any kind of question about the winner. Like picking gun runner is not a hard pick. Too much from the heart, too much trainer bias, too much reliance on fake news. Not enough review of the tape. · 2 days ago
  • illhaveanothertriplecrown · I loved the night. As a gambler you need to know when a race is worth putting money on. The Belmont Stakes was a race to bet on. I put down about 20 bucks and hit a 3 dollar trifecta earning just under 1000.00 The Matt Winn and Stephen foster I bet about 20 bucks for fun, hit 2 one dollar trifectas and walked with about 35 bucks total. It was easy for anyone to see that Gun Runner was going to destroy that field. It was also pretty obvious to anyone paying attention this spring that McCraken was going to enjoy Churchill. I was not looking at this night as a money maker, I was looking at it as comeback of two nice horses and a night that would be a fun way to prevent the triplecrown hangover from getting me down. An excellent night overall! · 16 hours ago
This gelding is running twice in one week at Santa Anita. His racing record indicates excessive racing. Maybe he'd perform better if the team gave him a decent rest between gigs (i.e., a month or so like the prominent teams do). What's the problem?
Worked on the turf last week. Belmont Oaks possibly?

I think after the layoff the goal was to win & look good later. Songbird went gate to wire in a grade 1. Until she loses she is the horse to beat outside of the older males.

Will she be at saratoga at all this year?
In discussing scenarios for this year's Classic, I am looking the huge role that the BCC has had in determining HOTY. Ghostzapper didn't have THAT great a year (very good but not great prior to the Classic) in '04, but had an incredible BCC and won the award. Same with Saint Liam the next year - a very good but not great year up to the BCC, but winning it gave him the award. In '06, Invasor probably had a slightly lesser year than Bernardini going into the race, but took HOTY when he beat the latter in the BCC. In '13, I have no doubt Game on Dude would have taken HOTY had he won the BCC - although I think he should have won it anyway. The great exception, as Ferris has always noted, is '10, when Blame beat Zenyatta, but then for reasons of giving her a "lifetime achievment award", they gave her HOTY instead.
