Acclamation and Caracortado carry great front speed. They hold on... in what you'd call a sprint. Plus, I never like to play favorites in anything. So looking at the competition, I think the two will burst out of the gate together and tire each other at the quarter pole. Then I think Jeranimo and Smart Bid will make their move from behind (watch their previous stuff at around this distance). Logically, looking hard at his lineage Smart Bid has strong lines of Bold Ruler, Nasrullah, and Princequilla blood in him. No wonder he comes outta the clouds. Jeranimo's got the Northern Dancer thing going on, also with old Nasrullah blood. Though I guess it all depends on the pace - I still stand on my decision that Acclamation and Caracortado will go fast and tire here. Bet the closers here. Also, Celtic Princess looks great for show.

  • mrsreed · The date - scratch that - sorry, am a New Yorker. And @winwinwin, guess we were both wrong. But hey - a close second by Jeranimo :D and Smart Bid not far behind him. · 1405 days ago
