Nice analysis. Well done again. I see Irap as the pace setter but he certainly does not need to be in a hurry. The lack of heat seems to work against Practical Joke a bit. I expect McCracken and Tapwrit to be back at again like in Tampa. Maybe this time Tapwrit gets a cleaner first run. Not much gambling value to be found unless you like Irap to steal it or Wild Shot in a merry go round scenario.
Suggestion – consider getting a new name. It does not seem to fit you. Laurie and Ashley give their opinions. Both are consummate pros. Blaming Laurie for your lost wager is pathetic. Certainly not worthy of a “King”. I assume if Gunnevera had won you would have praised Laurie to the high heaven. It works that way right? Professional handicappers and writers post without the race day information we have including post parade appearance, tote board, race track bias, etc. Laurie and Ashley both have posted many winners. They will continue do so in the future.
I like Tapwrit. He runs fast finishing with interest. He ran well against Derby leader McCracken in the Davis then followed it up nicely in TB Derby. Nothing this year is a blow me away type.
Did anybody feel American Patriot did not get a trip that would produce his best sustained late run. I think he may have had a bit more run but got a Euro cover up trip inside. He is not an explosive type but a grinder needing 2-3F on outside clear to get there. Iprefer the ride Mondaliste got personally. Nice race and kudos to Beach Patrol. Another Chad..... America turf racing is starting to resemble Ireland and O'Brien.
It appears you have five horses included in your Pick 4 with a good mix of short, mid and long prices. The Player is starting to look like a "wise guy" horse. Everyone on every site seems to be on same 6-1 shot. Odds may not hold. Good Luck!
Most impressive in a superior race. I hope the horse continues to progress.
I would love to see Nyquist tackle his elders to avoid the ship east. However, not likely. I am probably in the minority but I have always felt Nyquist never quite gets his due. Whether its the AP hangover effect I don't know. His losing race in the Preakness was very good and before that all he does is beat everyone. Beating Chrome and other olders would elevate his reputation whenever his connections decide to take their shot.
A super nice race mare that gave fans a lot of thrills. It is fun to follow these types also as broodmares. I would lean to Medaglia d' Oro then Mo. I wonder if he Winchell family will use one of their sires though. Whatever the pairing it should be enjoyable seeing them run.
Good list of young sires but nothing really excites me. I guess Uncle Mo sucked all the air out of the room. I have been watching To Honor and Serve a bit as a sleeper. Only a few have ran that I have seen.
My question is how did Mongolian Prince lose in his debut at GP? Must have been one tough MSW group at GP to beat this seasoned horse. :-)
