Graded Stakes = Class
Graded stakes mean nothing?
I dont want to accept it, she took 3rd in the Oaks but shes not a top filly. hmm
She has already won at 9F so the distance in the Oaks wasnt the issue. I think she will do fine at 12F, I understand you dont. More than likely... we will never know unless she runs, not many 12F out there left!
3 graded stakes
So going 4 of 5 all over 8 Furlongs is what? Winning 2 graded stakes (over stakes winners) is what? MSW at 8 furlong (Pletcher must of just looked on her pedigree and though “Maybe we should start her out in a route today,” or maybe he trained her!) is what? Slow? She is a very talented horse that took 3rd in probably the toughest G1 for fillies. Is Orb slow cuz he finished 4th this week? She like Orb may have miss fired. All I’m saying is it’s a no brainer, 2nd pays more than 1st in the other races and she seems to be suited for longer distance. That’s black and white, I shouldn’t need to clue anyone in on that, especially someone on a horse web site!-)
Ok, I’m not sure what your point is. I think you are over thinking it a bit. I think it’s really simple, the choices are the Ogden Phipps on 5/28 for 400K (8.5F), The Belmont on 6/8 for 1 million (12F), or the Mother Goose on 6/22 for 300K(8.5F). What would you do if you owned the horse. This horses is a favorite of mine so I will clue you in; She is NOT a speed demon, but she can run for 12F at a fairly good clip. So why run the 8.5 Furlong races, when you probably have a better shot at the Belmont. I hope she runs and I hope I get her at 5-1 or better. I will say it first, she has the best shot in Belmont and Just as good of a chance to win than ANY of the colts.
Good rule of thumb is to bet on the trainer that has 1/3 of the field....Oh' Wait,.... that didnt work for Todd!
Lukas bamboozled everybody. Everyone thought titletown5 would set the pace, he played with the jockeys mind. Old Jedi trick
Goldencents is at low odds because he did have the highest speed figure at 9 furlongs of 106. So on a fast track, which Pimlico wont be today, he has a good shot at hitting the board.
