Mission Impazible on top. Reason why is I like Pletcher/Castellano connection. This horse is proven over this distance over some quality races and competition. Horse has beaten Giant Oak and Apart at this distance. Infact, this horse has beaten Apart quite a few times. His speed figures for this race in right there and he comes off the pace. They paid good money to breed this horse, has one of the best trainers trainign him with some sharp workout times.
Who is Michael Pavelick going for in here? Hes on fire.. I like 1,5,4,7 in that order

  • MichaelPavelick · Interesting comment about Giant Oak. I've made a couple of recent comments about him myself. This was before I saw the Beyer speed ratings though. Wouldn't be surprised to see him run big. · 1756 days ago
  • ruffed grouse · He will need some pace though, like a half in 46 and change which I believe he will get. This will really be a riders race, who gets the best trip will decide it. · 1756 days ago
Close Whitney this year, but have to go with Mission Impazible, or so my 79% winning formula says.
rail trip pulls surprise, why not it is Saratoga
Sentimentally, I'm rooting for a win for either Tizway or Morning Line. Reason-wise, Flat Out, Tizway, and Rail Trip are the top three picks.
I think this could be one of the best fields I've seen assembled in 2011.
