I knew Alpha would do it. Reminds me exactly of Stay Thirsty

  • Dressage3295 · Don't really like Liaison. Atigun is my third choice and My Adonis is my exotic · 1166 days ago
  • yukichan · Alpha, if he keeps his head in the gate. · 1165 days ago
Teeth of the Dog and Liaison will be 1st and 2nd!
  • rafirox · I love Teeth of the Dog in this one, and Fast Falcon. I hope Neck n' Neck doesn't win because i betted TOTD, FF, Liasion in an exacta box. · 1166 days ago
  • jmac500 · Street Lifes race yesterday made me more confident in these two. · 1166 days ago
Jim Dandy: This group meeting of "2012 Second Tier 3YO's" is now in session. Alpha & Liaison are obvious and were considered "1st Tier" before the Ky Derby acid test. Hard to believe but I think Prospective is the best of this bunch. He's the only one that's won 3 stakes at 3 different venues since March. Having Johnny V available is always plus and at 12:1, why not?
Field is set and it looks like Liaison's race to lose.

  • Mary Z. · I'm giving Alpha another chance. Neck N Neck and Prospective are also my top picks. · 1167 days ago
  • Jinlie01 · Alpha should rebound in here. · 1167 days ago
Prospective and Arigun are the wild cards. I can't understand why Neck N' Neck is the second choice.
I like teeth here
Is this race going to be on TV other than HRTV & TVG?
http://www.drf.com/events/saratoga-racetrack-lake-george-stakes (DRF insider says that Gemologist is more likely to stay home and run in the Jim Dandy)
I think that it Gemologist commits to the Jim Dandy the top 4 contenders are Alpha-Gemologist -Fast Falcon-Teeth of the Dog.
Neck 'N" Neck is not "I 'll Have Another" although they have same Sire "Flower Alley"
Mr.Bob Baffert had also have Paynter and Bodemeister as an entry i Jim Dandy stakes, they have both scatched, so i am very much in doubt in my mind , why they have sratched? so Liaison ran in Kentucky Derby and placed 6th position, recently he was third Swaps Stakes coming from last, so i figure that Liaison is going to try utmost to get the Lim Dandy!
Now that Gemologist is going to run in the Haskell-G1 I like Alpha, Street Life, Prospective, and Fast Falcon.

  • Mr. Thirsty · I think that would be the case. Alpha paired up with Ramon Dominguez is awesome because they worked so well together. · 1174 days ago
  • illhaveanothertriplecrown · Alpha if he runs, but I am hoping Prosepective can make something happen · 1174 days ago
This going to be an interesting race. WTDW, Paynter, and Gem are who I like best, but I wouldn't doubt that Alpha or Atigun could pull off the win.
Nice looking field here... Can Neck and Neck take up the charge for his brother?

  • TimSmith · Like we said its not set in stone that it will be a sign of success , but to say how a hork works has Nothing to do with performance is not right. · 1178 days ago
  • Mr. Thirsty · As of right now Mary Z I think Bob Baffert is pointing him toward the Jim Dandy-G2. · 1178 days ago
If I had to pick the winner I'd choose Paynter, this colt is young and just keeps improving.

  • travel_vic · last two races show marked improvement....Don't know what the upper limits of this one that may be ahead. · 1178 days ago
If this was the field of the Jim Dandy-G2, I think that Paynter, Alpha, and Fast Falcon will be the biggest factor's.
