The Wonder Again is run at 1 1/8 mile, and the Belmont Oaks Invitational is run at 1 1/4 mile.
It's in the last paragraph of the article. The Wonder Again at Belmont and then the Belmont Oaks if she continues to train well.
This promises to be a much better betting opportunity than the Santa Anita Derby as there will not be any 3-5 favorites here. Good luck to you both!
None come immediately to mind, that's for sure.
There's a big difference between some minor brushing and the herding job Upstart did on Itsaknockout.
2-3-4 in the World Cup for the Americans. Not bad! I was happy to see Candy Boy get in the mix for 4th behind California Chrome and Lea.
I haven't quite decided yet. Winning the Derby in his 4th lifetime start is a tall task, but he looks like he will want the distance. With that said, the Belmont looks even more up his alley than the Derby, like you said.
They both began doing well at the same time. Sure Untapable has been the more successful of the two, but even if Tapiture wasn't her stablemate, we'd still hear a good bit about him.
I disagree. Tapiture is pretty good at 1 1/8 mile, too. Won the WV Derby at that distance. Finished 2nd to Bayern in the PA Derby at 9 panels. The AK Derby wasn't that great, but he still finished 4th in that one. Limiting him to 1 mile wouldn't be doing him justice.
I'm willing to bet Untapable will, especially due to the short field she faces. In all honesty, I'm having a hard time deciding if Tapiture or Ride On Curlin will be the ML favorite, but you can bet their odds will be close.
