Interesting upset possibility in the Ohio Derby today. Certainly will get a good price on him with everyone going with Divining Rod and Whiskey Ticket.
If people actually saw up close what track condition he ran through in the Preakness, they would not be worried about him adapting to the Belmont surface. The way I see it, any horse that can run through that, can run through anything.
It's a bit sad he won't run in the MET Mile (probable to Woody Stephens now). The MET went from a potential race for the ages to now an average rendition.
MHS, you sound like someone who knows absolutely nothing about horse racing, or have sour grapes for betting Firing Line or Dortmund. Which is it?
Just got back from Pimlico. What an incredible race. No speed figure will be able to quantify what type of conditions those horses ran in. It was chaos with people running everywhere, wind gusting 40mph into the race, downpours, lightning/thunder. It looked like they were going to be racing in a hurricane. Many were surprised they didn't postpone it a few minutes, since they evacuated the infield. Got some good video of the stretch run I can upload tomorrow.
I guess nobody believed me earlier when I said she was a live sleeper. Hit the P3, P4, Super, Big Balloons!
Live sleeper in the Black-Eyed Susan.
Can't believe he's 16/1 right now in the Laz. Everybody bridge jumping on Kentuckian again.
I've noticed people who are saying "only idiots paid to watch the fight" usually fall into two categories: People who can't afford to buy the fight, and/or people who have absolutely no knowledge of boxing at all. I wonder which category you fall under?
I know its too early, but i'd love to see Competitive Edge run here.
