Rachel's Valentina rolls!
Based on how tomorrow goes with American Freedom, I could see him being part of the mix too (even though Baffert is more of a Haskell guy).
Filibuster?!? You're cracking me up, Zipse. I'm with you on Destin. I did see there's a 60% chance for rain on Saturday, so Exaggerator would obviously move up if that were to happen.
I was wrong, he is a most deserving winner.
Nyquist's fastest BRIS number around 2 turns is 97. 9 different other runners have ran faster than that at 2 turns. Exaggerator has 3 triple digit route figs, Mohaymen has done that twice and Mor Spirit has run a 102 & 99. Danzing Candy, Destin, & Creator even sport triple digit route race figs. I understand he's undefeated, but he's literally average in this field, speed figure wise, so taking 2-1 on a horse who is better at 1 mile or less is something I can't do.
I hope you're on your game today, because we agree quite a bit on most of the races.
Great show, Zipse & "Ring the Bell" Shifman. With all these deep closers, might be time to favor some horses closer to the pace (Mor Spirit & Destin)???
Great show, fellas. It's shaping up to be a great Derby. Keep your fingers crossed that no one get knocked off the Derby trail.
I agree with you on Destin. Mohaymen reminds me a little of Thunder Gulch in the way TG cruised early in the year & turned in a clunker right before the Derby.
These pics are awesome! Thank you for sharing.
