Did Nakatani really have to send Square Eddie into a suicidal pace with Morning Line? Giant Oak ran a good race but it was definitely set up for him. I thought Morning Line ran great. Rule ran well, had every chance to win it but couldn't punch it in at the end.

  • cugel the clever · i agree with icy. square eddie isn't a graded stakes calibre horse at 9 furlongs and he ran the only way he can run. the pace was relatively moderate which makes Giant Oaks' victory that much more impressive. The moderate pace is also the reason that Morning Line was still around at the wire. The only surprise in the race was Fly Down - I expected a better stretch run from him and a top-four finish. Clearly he needed a race after the 3-month layoff. · 2032 days ago
I'll be there and hope the field remains intact. Fly Down would be the obvious selection but Rule with Castellano / Pletcher connection is intriguing
