Look like East Coast bias. The Ky Derby winner will once again come from California. The Older males should be a lot tougher out west too.
Thanks for setting the record straight on Main Sequence. I don't understand why he's even under consideration. His races were classified as G1 but his competition wasn't G1 caliper.
I'll go with Bayern. He beat CC 2 of the 3 times they met. He also the only horse to beat Untapable this year. He was also best late Summer and Fall when racing is the toughest. Ran the second fastest Woody Stephens Stakes in the last 20 years, the second fastest Haskell Invitational in the last 17 years, ran the fastest Pennsylvania Derby in the race’s 35-year history, and the second fastest Breeders’ Cup Classic in the last 10 years.
If your mean the Classic, CC wasn't affected by Bayern bad start. He had good trip and every opportunity to pass Bayern in the stretch and couldn't do it.
Yea but watch the Preakness again and keep an eye on Bayern from the gate to the first turn and you'll see why he lost. Not making an excuse for him, but the fact is he beat CC the last two time they met.
Private Zone with another win on the rail
Condo Commando win impressively !
Retired from racing
4 wins beating up on Twilight Eclipse. I think not
At least he showed up. He raced every month except March & Oct and twice in April at 8 different tracks. Compare that with Main Sequence who a lot of people are pushing for HOY.
