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.
Of course the other horse on these tickets was Palace Malice, who ran off unexpectedly and then goes onto win the Belmont.
Great stuff, Matt. Right now (though subject to change) the 3 I'm focusing on are Mohaymen, Whitmore & Destin. Though they're different races For as much as everyone is making about Mo Tom's trouble moving up the rail, Whitmore as lost just as much ground going wide (and he's running faster while doing it). Here's how I like to play the Derby tri...1 horse * 2 horse * ALL and shift around all the lines. Costs about $100 for $0.50. Normandy Invasion's early move cost me big in Orb's Derby.
I'll take your action on Oklahoma.
