If the key was to put pressure on AP early, Smooth Roller is usually close to lead, he did keep close to Bayern in the AA stakes at SA and started to put pressure at the 1/4 pole, or maybe Pletcher will enter Coach Inge or Constitution to replace Liam's Map? Or will Beholder be right on his neck all the way? Curious to see if any other horse will put their hat in the ring since LM will be pointed to the BCDM.
Same here...he would've definitely had an effect on the outcome one way or another. But I guess Pletcher knows best and I am sure the owners would've loved to be in the "Classic" but decided on best chance to win. Curious to see who goes with AP in the early stages of the race.
thanks for that update...definitely breaking news for BC Classic field and handicapping.
Wow....that's big news.
This is a wide open race as is most 2 yr old turf races. This is so wide that I'm casting a wide "net" with Mom's Choice, Sapphire Kitten, Lily's Dream and Family Tree. Going against Harmonize even though she is the proven commodity. Never know with 2 yr olds, especially on turf.
I usually bet to win on the picks and exacta, trifecta box them.
sticking with Little Cherie, Dream Dance and Lookout Sister
Ran like he was happy in the King's Bishop...curious to see if the other speedsters like Work All Week, Fast Anna, etc will all be vying for the lead. Looking for a horse with some tactical speed and/or just off the pace like Alsvid and possibly Sharp Sensation (if he runs here instead of tomorrow).
I guess it's a wait and see how the weather and track is on Saturday. Really liked Coach Inge and Effinex in here but there are a lot of "if's" regarding storm, track condition and who will actually run.
One of my favorite jockeys of all time. Watched him ride since I was a kid. Had a knack of timing the stretch runners at the wire.
