No disrespect to the horse, but Hansen ran like a typical Tapit; like a champ for 1 1/16....

  • AmbitiousD · I feel that Hansen's derby chances are most dependent on post position draw. If he is on the inside of Bodemeister he is not going to fare well. I think he would do best with 13-18 so he can break fast but feel less pressure to be on the lead. · 1476 days ago
  • cocoa2 · Hansen has 2 options for winning, wiring the field on a slow pace and running a length or two off the pace on the rail at the beginning of the pack. With a 20 horse field, and the majority pacemakers it is looking to be favorable to closers. Recently Hansen tends to not have a huge kick in the few final furlongs. I think we can count him out. · 1476 days ago
Magnificent race for Dullahan! and Sabercat is coming back. Bless them all and keep them safe.
Using Howe Great with Ever So Lucky in exotics
how can i watch this?
I am going with Holy
Hansen, Dullahan,Howe Great, Ever so lucky. 2 dollar super box
I gotta go against hansen in this race, I like him but I am going with Midnight Crooner or Scatman.
There is a LOT of competition for hansen in this race.. i want to see the kitten joy horses win or motions horse!
iI like prospective to win blue grass stakes.
Hansen doesn't need to win the BGS, just needs to run well. I think that Dullahan has a good chance to upset Hansen. Ralliers have done very well at 9 furlongs at Keeneland this meet. This is Dullahan's second race after a 4-month+ layoff, and he won the G1 Breeders Futurity at Keeneland last year. Plenty of early speed in this race to set him up.
Hansen will go wire to wire
I think prospective i s going to defeat hanson in blue grass,

Hansen will win but will have a tough time.
Midnight Crooner, impressive 7 ½-length maiden winner for owner Arnold Zetcher over Golden Gate’s synthetic Tapeta surface Saturday, is being considered for the Grade I, $750,000 Blue Grass Stakes at 1 1/8 miles on Keeneland’s Polytrack surface on April 14, Bob Baffert said Sunday morning. “I wanted to see how he handles the synthetic up there,” Baffert said of the son of War Chant. “We’ll look at the Blue Grass if all goes well.”
  • ghelguera · Midnight Crooner was very impressive yesterday and his running style really suits this horse at Keeneland but maybe one more race into him would be nice before the Blue Grass. Any idea what figure did he receive for his stylish win? · 1534 days ago
