  • Horsefan90 · Don't throw out Shackleford... I noticed that he seems to like long stretches for sprint races. In a way he's like Silver Charm. The way that he likes to fight for the lead in the stretch. And he's got John Velazquez... · 1765 days ago

very competitive race for older horses.
Nice line up! Go Caleb! I love Shakleford, too, but Go Caleb!
Can't wait. I love Shackleford - even in defeat, he has so much grit!!

Holy smokes! What a field!
One of the strongest and deepest fields in a race all year... we nood more like this, especially in races like the Haskell and Travers
If this is the field this could be one of the sprints of the year.
i hope shack takes it all
To Honor and Serve crushes the this field
If the Met Mile is if for ages 3+, you know who I would love to see added to this field to make it a truly all-star cast, making it in my mind a better race than the Preakness?... Hansen and Trinniberg! Both horses aren't classic distance horses. Hansen maybe a little more than TB, but neither one really a mile and a quarter horse. However, I do think the mile distance is right up their alley. Both have tactical speed and I would love to see them tackle the older males.
Plus it gives them an extra week of rest!
