Older Comments about the 2014 Florida Derby (G1)...

I don't like any of the top 4 from the Florida Derby for the exacta on the 1st Sat. in May. Constitution is a nice horse, but has two strikes for me (a Tapit and lightly raced). WR and GAR are gritty horses, but I just don't see either prevailing at 1 1/4. Depending on pace and trip, however, I can see any one of these filling out the tri or super. If he gets in, I don't see CP in the top 10.

  • tmallios1 · You are correct Vic. It all depends how big or small your handle is. If someone is a casual player ,say will bet $50 on the day. Certainly is not worth paying the $25 for the sheets on a daily basis. Their competitor(Ragozin) are more expensive. · 269 days ago
si monta mike smith a wildcat red 5 cuerpos de ventaja. "una verguenza lo de de velazquez"..como de costumbre. vaya desgaste y aún así casi gana sin querer. le hizo la carrera a constitution y a pletcher. VELAZQUEZ ES EL ENEMIGO? CUANDO VAS A VENIR A TACAR?.. PLETCHER & CIA.
..CON TODOS MIS RESPETOS. UN JOCKEY COMO VELAZQUEZ NOOOOOOO ES UN HORROR... DEJÓ LIBRE EL PASO PARA CONSTITUTION..UN DESGASTE EL POBRE CABNALLO. WILDCAT ES MUCHO MEJOR... ESE CABALLO CON OTRO JOCKEY HOY HUBIERA GANADO CON DIFERENMCIA. "ES LA SEGUNDA VEZ QUE DIGO LO DE VELAZQUEZ".. LOS AMERICANOS NO TIENEBN OJOS EN LA CARA. "NO SE PUEDE ADMITIR QUE DESGASTEN A UN CABALLO DE ESA MANERA Y DEJEN LIBRE LA CALLE PARA PLETCHER Y CONSTITUTION.
gutsy performance by constitution....surprised that wildcat red held on that long but i guess the easy lead helped. disappointing run by cairo.

  • goblin · Tom, Blasi did not commit suicide, but a recent barn manager for Asmussen did. He was only 27y/o. http://www.drf.com/news/former-asmussen-employee-commits-suicide · 271 days ago
  • tmallios1 · I did not think he did,just a stupid premature Aprill Fool Prank as i figured. At least some good is coming in NY. I just read in a NY periodical that finally something smart will be done. Monies from the racing game will be diverted to the insurance for Jockeys. They are hoping that as many as 80 will be covered.Least that the State and NYRA can do. By turning a blind eye and deaf ear to the dangers,at least they are taking care of their 2nd most important asset in the racing game. · 271 days ago

  • tmallios1 · Juat heard an interview with Mcglaughlin. When asked about Cairo,sure was not to convincing.Said he is doing as great as he should.This is a long year and many races down the line.Can the horse wim,Absolutely he can.This looks like a situation where they are looking to hit the board and hopefully qualify for the Derby. Kiaran is usually upbeat Just like before the Holy Bull,he was very confidebt.After it he was hedging ,before pulling the plug. If he were a major price i would use him in the first 2 slots. Now,if he runs 1/2 i am a loser in this race. · 272 days ago
ganará 1ºwildcat red..2º cairo prince el favorito. wildcat para mi a pesar de la opinion americana es mejor que cairo prince.ya en el fountain sacó 5 cuerpos al 2º
I really like Spot. This gelding is always improving and the longer distance will be good. Working very well, coming off a win in the Swale (G2). You can throw out his performance in the Hutcheson; sort of a bad trip getting squeezed against the rail from #1 post. There will be plenty of room from the 8 “spot” this Saturday.

I would be very surprised if someone other than Cairo Prince, Constitution or Gen A Rod wins the Fla Derby. Gen A Rod could get the perfect trip, I think we will see his high cruising speed for a little upset with Cairo Prince finishing very strong for 2nd. I sure Cairo Prince finishes no worse than 2nd, I would to see him in the KD
Cario should romp.
