Is Summer Front running, wasnt he going to pull out if it was rainy?
The distance will keep Silver Max from winning, Optimizer will win that's for sure.

  • TimSmith · Jamac is right 1/200 max..as in Silver Max to take it!! · 1044 days ago
  • gelded1 · I think Silver Max might get beat if the turf is yielding or slow but if it's firm it could be lights out for the rest of the field. Just my opinion. · 1044 days ago
I am thinking a trifecta of Silvermax, Optimizer, Summerfront.
Silver Max is a tough spot, Summer Front should win. Watch out for finnegans wake tho.
I think that Optimizer will surprise everyone and take this one over Silver Max and Summer Front.
Did Optimizer actually draw the 1 position?
Could be a GREAT Virginia Derby! Look at the sires of possibles. Four of the daddy's are VA Derby winners!!!
