I don't think all of the variables are the same here. I think sense they implemented the point system, the "campaigners" for the derby have risen to the top and the derby has been very favorite heavy. In fact last year was the top 3 betting choices in the trifecta. This isnt always the BC juvenile winner.
I think McCracken is at the top of the class right now. But I see this as a year where there will be 3-4 equal choices come Derby Day. Seems there are a few horse that could cause some gaming buzz.
Good horse, not great.
I have not had the luxury of attending BC events anywhere other than Santa Anita. I will say this, no traffic, tons of hotels, GREAT weather, nice facility, other things to do with the beach an hour away, and plenty of room. Tough to match that.
does anyone know if this one is going to make the jump to dirt
I could list my post 2000, but merging the 2 is any ones guess.
1) A.P- no brainer
2) Curlin- when he was on, which was almost every reace, he was hot
3) Zenyatta- Id put her #2 if she wasnt such a artificial dirt specialist.
4) Chrome- great horse that can be beat.
5) Goldikova- even though she only ran in Breeders cups. 3 wins!
6) Beholder- 11 G1 wins, 3 BC wins, an an illness away from 4!
7) Wise Dan- for a while there he was unbeatable
AP Indy and Storm Cat... not bad!
Hey lets not speculate it was drugs. I dont think anyone has said that. RIP, once on top of the racing world!
Mark, I agree she should take a shot, but it seems you have only 1 tier 1 horse on dirt, Chrome. Not sure they are all tier 2 horses, but even the tier ones would be behind chrome this year. Found has a tough choice Chrome or Flintshire. Id say slightly better odds to beat Flintshire but slightly less money and prestige.
If Chrome chokes, frosted has as good a chance as any horse.
