Super Screener nailed this one. Turn-back's did a-okay!
Even if Mo was in this race, I still couldn't see him hitting the board, as the top 4 finishers are just doing better right now than he is.

  • icyhotboo · His loss ensures that the Empire State Games will take place at Belmont Park and the breeders cup races are through if they don't give MR his way on this matter. BC just doesn't have the money to compete with him and his obsession to run his horses at Belmont. · 1554 days ago
  • buckpasser · @icyhotboo. It will be interesting to see Repole bump heads with another ego maniac Frank Stronach. Who wins that one. For me I think the Breeders Cup should do what they intended--move around the country so more fans have the opportunity to show up and see the races live. Also it would show case other tracks · 1554 days ago
I knew Caleb's Posse would win it! And I also thought Shackleford second. I thought The Factor might show something htough.

  • cugel the clever · Mo demonstrated conclusively that he should have been entered in the Dirt Mile. Oh wait - the horse that beat him was there too ;-) · 1555 days ago
  • RamonD · it look like POSSE went up and MO went down!!! · 1555 days ago
Shackleford 2 nd
Tres Borrachos 3 rd
Caleb's Posse 1 st
Irrefutable,,learning to rate,, improving,, looking at monster race at a price$$$$
I think Caleb's Posse could pull it off. But if Shackleford could somehow get back to the form he had in the Preakness, he could win it. The Factor is to much a sprinter horse for me, and didn't have a great couple of races in the past few months. Haven't really been doing long distances. Trappe Shot, Jersey Town, and Wilburn I also think could do well, maybe win, but my pick would surely have to be Caleb's Posse, after he beat Uncle Mo like that I just loved him!
  • chalk eyed cat · i had shackleford for the preakness. kept sticking with him,but i think he's worn out at this point and needs some time off. · 1559 days ago
The factor will win
Caleb's posse.
Im going to go with a longshot in this race, Tres Borrachos, have a feeling he's going to relish the one-turn mile, and gun these down.
caleb's posse. much improved horse, especially at a mile or less.
Was very impressed with Tapizar off the injury, like him if he stays around that morning of 20-1
Dirt Mile Trifecta: 1 The Factor, 5 Wilburn, 3 Tapizar
Trappe Shot is a lukewarm favorite at 3-1 from the #9 in the BC Dirt Mile.
jackson bend, what the heck, he's gotta win a big one at least once
TC and JB will go to wire together......
